Hey guys. I have a 1990 vw jetta mk2 clx (carburettor model) and my problem is that while I drive and attempt to pick up speed, it just sounds as if its suffocating and loses power but when I cruise, it...


Check the air filter. When was it last replaced? When was the engine last serviced?
When your down to about a quarter of a tank of fuel. Put a bottle of fuel line cleaner in the tank. Sit in the car and let it idle for about 15 to 20 minutes. Don't rev the engine up as this thins the fuel/cleaner mixture.
If this doesn't help you might have to get a carburettor specialist to strip and service the jets and needle inside the carburetor.

WHERE IS THE FUEL FILTER LOCATED ON A 98' VW JETTA 2.0 GLX


The fuel filter is under the right rear of the car near the fuel tank. If you face the car from the rear it is on the right side by the rear tire and the fuel tank. Easy to spot.

Where is the fuel filter located on the 2007 VW Jetta 2.5


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. The fuel filter is usually on the same side as the gas cap. Look under your car at the gas cap and you will notice the gas lines. Follow the gas lines that lead to the front of the engine. Some lead to the gas tank and the others go toward the front. The gas lines should run into the fuel filter.

2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter


It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

Hi there, I have a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Flair 2. I've had the car for about a year now and overall it's been an excellent car for it's age. However, there's always something that needs to be fixed and lately I've had throttle response problems. I do not have any mechanical backround, so I will describe it as best as I can. For one, it seems apparent this is an issue when the engine is cold (or not sitting in the sun all day). I will put the foot down, and it won't respond until it gets to about 3000rpm (right around when I'm thinking about changing gears), and then it rocket ships forward. Before it finally responds, there's a lot of shaking going on in the engine bay. It doesn't sound pleasant either. I took it in for an oil change, and they put fuel injector in it and it seemed to be a temporary solution. Whatever the case, there's a poor connection between me putting the throttle down and the car responding to the action. I do rev it up before I get going, but it's kind of futile. So as a result, I have a tendency to stall in first gear at low speeds as the gas doesn't react when I want it to, and the clutch is usually released by that point. After about 5-10 minutes of constant driving, it will accelerate smoothly. If you can point me in the right direction, whether it's "fuel" related, or it's some sort of heat sensor (I have no idea what I'm talking about), let me know if you've had similar experiences. All my repairs have cost me less than a 100 each time, I want to keep it that way.
