Yes, it could be the wires, especially if this started after the plugs were replaced. The wires could have broke inside after pulling them off the plugs. There shouldn't be a distributor cap, there should be a coil pack on each spark plug, and I think that one of them is your culprit.

I have a 2000 vw jetta glx with the vr6 that needs the timing chain replaced there is an upper and lower one. So I was hoping at minimum that someone could post a link to a complete walkthrough along with...


The Jetta vr6 has a timing chain. These don't have to be replaced unless the gear is worn. When worn they will jump timing by a tooth or two. This will cause the engine to run rough.

Volkswagen 2000 jetta 2.8 VR6 the problem is in Spark Plug Wires


Very common fault relates to poor connection on the 4 pin plug

There is a repair kit available which has a new modified connector and about 5" of loom to repair this fault

It is advise to change any offending coil at the same time as the loose wires have usually damaged it.

2000 Volkswagen Jetta VR6 Running Rough Code P1215


P1215- cyl 3 fuel inj circ short to B+

Run a resistance check on injecter #3. should be something like 15-20 ohms, or at least in the neighborhood. Better yet check a few others you might be able to get at, just be sure there's no way to mix up the connecters. If # 3 is different from the others you found your issue

The light with the key through the car is the immobilizer. When you changed the battery it must of screwed it up. You will likely need to tow it to the dealer.

Jetta GLX 1998 (old body), when it rains heavy, car run rough


Sounds like you need new wires and or cap and rotor, had the same problem on my jetta 1.8L when I would drive it in heavy rain it would bog down and misfire. The water blows threw the rad right onto your distributor and wires causing the short (old and cracked or just defective). Try it out I'm sure that will fix it.

You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.

1.1 mm is the standard gap for a platinum tipped plug. Plugs for this car usually come pre-set but it's always worth checking before installing. Hope this helps.
