VW T4 diesel 1.9l - battery light on, rev counter dead.

Hi, just driving home on 50 mile journey. Oil light came on swiftly followed by battery light. Then the rev counter started wavering and went to zero. Got home, topped up the oil, which was low. Battery light still comes on when engine starts, and rev counter does not move when engine revved. Help!

Witch engine oil is suitable for a VW Jetta 4?


TWO answers read and follow the Manufacturers Specification. OR Always use ** 15-40 Diesel Rated Oil is ALL gas, natural/propane and diesel Engines! Use Purolator, then WIX, then Manufacturers Filters - NEVER Fram, "special". oil the oil lube shops filters!!! WHY? When flying planes, every 100 hours I remove the filter, cut it open, and INSPECT the filter material for particulate. My Vehicle Engines go for well over 600,000 miles - most other peoples. simply do NOT!

** I use Delo 15-40 in everything - an better one is Shell Rotunda, however too expensive and not needed! In gas engines after 500 miles, the FIRST Time ONLY - Replace the oil AND FILTER - mixed fuels and oils NEVER mix well. Then on gas engines ONLY replace the filter at the "normal" intervals and ADD not change, the oil... On Diesels, due to the extreme compression, you DO change the oil, at "normal" intervals. In gas, NOT diesel engines - you could use Pep Boys and/or Walmart's generic DIESEL GRADE oil - NOT in diesel engines, as from my experience.

AVOID gasohol - unless you like flash rust and oxidation inside your engine AND 30% less fuel mileage - NEVER use WD40 on ANY metal you want to reuse! And do NOT use BP or unknown small time gas stations - as MANY "top off their fuels" with other octanes - which LOWERS the octane - do to "covalent bonding of carbon molecules" Example: a 50/50 mix of 100 octane with 90 = closer to 80 NOT "in the middle".

Should I use conventional or high mileage motor oil for my engine with 244,000 miles


Even if the vehicle has had regular oil changes with filters every 5-6000 miles use the high mileage specific oil. The engine will have wear no matter how good the previous maintenance has been. been.
I have a Honda that has 180000 miles on it and notice that on longer journeys it uses oil even though it has been well looked after since new. The high milage oil makes it run less noisily, (it is a diesel.) I believe it make the engine more longer lived too

Hi Stan, are you didn.t connect back battery in wrong way? If the battery terminals has being turned around only for a second you might damage lots of electronic units in the car.If not the problem seems happened incidentaly.Any way the signal for the rev counter coming from the ECM.

2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue


Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.

Problem with my land rover discovery


its about air filter ,

open your filter air & oil both than clean your air filter than try to change your engine or transmision oils also,

black smoke indicates that your engine can't get more fresh air for serial or parellel combustions,

its easy to solve.

try itwith care.no risk is there
