No spark on number four plug


Have you ever replaced the spark plugs and wires? How many miles? Are the wires secure on the plugs and the coils?

Which plug drains the oil


It's on the bottom of the engine. You'll see the oil pan (smooth, rounded edges) and the drain plug on one of the bottom edges. Problem is, you need to remove several T20 torx fasteners and the car's belly pan to access the oil drain bolt (should be 19mm wrench) on the Jetta.

2001 Jetta Tdi runs rough


Hi Whitneyford
Your priblem sounds more like the glow plug timer relay than the exhaust. White smoke after start up is a sign of diesel entering the exhaust before it has burned completly. This is as a result of the glow plugs switching off too early, which is usually caused by one or more faulty glow plugs or a faulty timer.With engine COLD, IGNITION ON... Check voltage with all 4 plugs connected. You should have a reading of 10--12 volts
If there is no power, check in-line fuse on loom coming to plugs.
If power is present, check for How Long. If only for a few seconds, the problem is with the timer. This unit (the larger of the relays and usually black in colour) is fitted on the fuse board, and there are a few different types. They come in 7 pin..8 pin..and even 9 pin units.
The glow plug light is often NOT accurate (even with a new timer unit fitted) as to the time of heating, and you will almost certainly find that power will flow to the plugs for quiet some time after the light goes out. This is not unusuall with The Jetta Tdi.
Good luck.
I hope this helps you sort out this problem

Stumbles on acceleration


Well, I would replace the air filter, make sure the air hose from the air filter to the intake is not kinked or blocked and check for vacuum leaks. If these are all fine, I would check the fuel pressure as it is possible the pump is weak and not supplying enough fuel.

97 jetta glx 5speed...at over 10mph after lifting and reapplying the accelerator (like during normal shifting),when pushing the accelerator 1-3% down, it's like the gas or electrical gets cut off until the...


Two symptoms here Keith, and I just had this, same car year and model. The pedal could either be a bit loose, check the cable and throtle. Have someone check, when the cars in neutral,they manually rev it, and watch the RPM's. They should go 3-4 as normal. If this is the case, and its not the cable or pedal, REPLACE spark plug cables and wires. Odd, but that was the fix to mine. Hope it helps.

Hello, i think the fan on my 92 volkswagen jetta is broken


Do you mean the radiator fan ? Or the heater fan ? if it is the radiator fan, you can check it. Pull apart the plug where the heater recieves current. It is clipped on, you remove it by pressing the clip and pulling on it. Take some wires and pull of a liittle bit of the rubber insulation form both ends and connect the wires to the battery positive and to ground. Place the other end of the wire in the positive of the FAN wire male end. You had previously removed. And to ground on the wire male plug. The fan is supposed to turn smoothly and at a good speed at 12 volts from the battery. if it does not, your fan needs replacement.
