Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I bought my car two years ago and the engine light has pretty much been on since. My timing belt, pistons and water pump were all replaced last year. Last week my ABS light came on, but went off later and stayed off. Then my car shut off while stopped, but was able to be recranked. A couple of days ago my coolant light came on so we added antifreeze and water, but it still comes on shortly after cranking it and my ABS light is solid (not flashing). Any suggestions? I love this car, but I'm terrified it"s about to completely fall apart!
Have the fault codes read first
never ignore any light on the dash as they are there for a reason and not decoration

the only way you will find this out is to have a diagnostic machine plugged in and the fault memory read to check what fault is logged, it could be anything from a ABS wheel speed sensor to a control module fault, to save money in the long run i would advise you get the fault memory read first. hope this helps

compress the piston while turning it clockwise, there is a special tool for this, it is really hard to do unless u have a huge screwdriver

Bring the car into a repair shop and have them pressure test it for leaks or you can purchase a pressure tester make sure you get the appropriate adapter for your cars radiator filler neck or resovoir, and check for leaks yourself. Make sure the car is cold and there is the appropriate mixtiure of coolant and water in the system, prior to pressure testing. Also do a visual inspection of the cooling system when the vehicle is cold and look for leaks.
