Question about 1995 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Vw jetta. 1.8L 8 valve. Last night i left work it seemed a little spotty on the acceleration like it was getting tugged by somthing. ran fine one the express way but when i was getting off the ramp it had a huge lose of power woulnt accelerat when i floored it, i even down shifted and still bogged down, i pulled off to the nerest parking lot and it began to idle funny almost sounding like it wasnt fireing on all cylinders, then it finally just stalled and how it will not fire. i sprayed starting fluid to try to narrow it down as being fule or spark issue, it still didnt fire, so i belive its spark but i need some help...?

I would check the pick up coil in the distributor, and the control module, mounted under the drives side cowl, by the windsheild wipers, mounted on a silver heat sink.

Hi I have an 08 vw jetta 125 tsi the turbo doesn't


I would check the pressure blow off valve to see if it is stuck partially open. check hoses for holes or leaks where clamped. Also if you have a inter cooler for this turbo check it for cracks or leaks a pressure check of air to the cooler then spray with soapy solution to look for bubbles no bubbles after cooler good.

Go back to that VW dealer and complain. I'm sure you payed plenty, and I know in my shop, if a customer's car is not repaired to their satisfaction, I want to know, and make it right. Sometimes parts can be bad right out of the box, and sometimes problems are misdiagnosed. Go back, but don't agree to pay for anything untill you get a satisfactory explanation. Good luck.
