More than likely the fuel sending unit was not placed down into the tank properly or possibly defective. This could have happened during the installation and I know this for certain to be tricky on this car . I would suggest removing the pump assembly and making sure the arm attached is correctly moving inside the tank . Goodluck

97 VW Jetta GLS, manual transmission. The speedometer stopped working & the fuel gauge is jumping around.


Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

When i try to start my 99 vw passat gls v6 it will barely start and stay started for possibly 5 sec with no presure on gas pedal if i keep my foot on the gas it will stay running but the rpms wont rise...


it hard to say there few things that could cause this but sounds like it a Fuel issue
Possible bad fuel pump totallly clogged fuel filter bad injectors Out of gas etc.
first thing you need to do is check your fuel pressure ( I bet it be low ) if it low check fuel filter if fuel filter good replace fuel pump
If Fuel pressure is within Specs then test the injectors
if Fuel pressure is ok and injectors test out ok then check ignition system (spark plugs, coils, module etc)

chances are the spring that opens the flap is weak,just replace the spring.if it gets stuck shut pull away the carpet/trim from inside the trunk to get to the flap wire.

Where is located 1993 VW Passat gas pump relay?


Your fuel pump relay is on the top part of the fuse panel. It is the relay farthest to the right on the bottom row. If it is still the relay from the factory it will be stamped 67. Hope this helps.

Gas gauge issue


you got a problem with your fuel gauge sender that works together with the fuel pump inside in the fuel tank, that sender is a wire that could be burned and is sending wrong voltage to the fuel meter on the dash board,replace it as a unit or if you want to save lot of money buy it separate from the fuel pump.

If the light casing needs replasing then im pretty sure you have to remove the upper bumper, but if its the bulb thats blown the you should be able to do it from the engine bay. I hope this information helps im sorry i couldnt help more but im not a vw specialist.

1996 VW Passat GLS transmission shift problem


Like to make sure that your post says your car is a 1996 with only 38800 miles.
There were many recalls for your vehicle back then which may be the cause of your hard shifting. Are you the original owner ? If so, have you done any scheduled maintenance to it from the day you purchased it ?
