2004 VW Jetta 1.8 Turbo


The drain should be on the left side (Driver Side) at the bottom of the radiator. It will look like a knob and has a hose connected to it. They are sometimes hard to see. I suggest you jack the car up and get a flashlight to see. Also, if you have the plastic side skirts in place the coolant is going to hit it and go everywhere so be careful or take the left side skirt off. You can remove it by using a torx bit to remove the bolt at the K-Frame and then just pull down off the studs. Hope this helps, if you need more help let me know, good luck.

When driving, the turbo shuts down and I lose power. After shutting the car off for 15-20 minutes, the turbo resets and works again. Sometimes it will work for a few days, other times it may only work...


Check the spark plugs, I have seen several VW turbos with this problem. The aluminum heads expand and contract to fast and crack the porcelain on the plug causing the engine to misfire when the turbo spools up and makes boost. The misfire drops the engine and trans into a "safe mode" where it loses power.

I want to turbo my 2003 VW Jetta 2.0 how do i set my car up internally so i don't break my engine


well it all depends on how much boost you plan to run,a miled boost set up of about 5-7psi should survive with stock components how ever 10+ you will need to do major intrenal surgry from pistons right down to bearings but its doable. if you'r going the mild way you would need turbo charger,costom exhaust manifold and adapters,induction pipeing or hoses(sylicone) intercooler fuel management remapping cooling system upgrade,brakes up grade,

Rusted through Oil pipe


Try a VW car and van Breaker. You may need to take the pipe of the breakers car, so take some tools with you. You could try a motor factors other than VW. Hope that helps you.
