Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Ok im going to give you as mucch detail as possible. I have a 02 vw jetta 2.0ltr. thursday morning it wouldnt start after i tried to 3 times. I put oil in it and it started up but hesitated at first. so comes friday night after work it didnt want to start. when i turned the key i heard a cllicking noise underr the steering column and found that relay was the fuel pump relay. Anyhow i pulled one spark plug and someone was wit me and he said he saw spark. and the plugs smelt like gas. So i went to the autoparts store and just replaced the fuel pump relayand plugs and tried to fire it up but it would only turn but not starting.

I had to take my car back to the dealership twice. First, they replaced the ignition switch. 3 days later, my car wouldn't start again. So I took it back and they called VW - VW said to replace the steering column module. I asked my dealer why they didn't replace the steering colum module first - they said that even if they had replaced that first, the old ignition switch would have shorted out the steering column module. Whatever.
$600 later my car has been fine for about 3 weeks now. If it happens again I will keep you posted.

I had a problem like this on a 1997 VW Jetta 2.0L. I suggest you obtain a multimeter, a gas pressure gauge, and a used injector from a junk yard. You need to find if the car has spark if it is getting gas and if the injector is firing. Plug a used spark plug into say # 4 spark plug wire and ground end against the manifold or other ground. Have someone crank the engine and see if there is spark. If there is spark then disconnect the electrical connector and plug in the used injector and hold in your hand. Have someone crank the engine and if it clicks as the engine revolves the injector is firing. Now if you have spark and an injector that clicks then put the pressure gauge in the upper line going to the injector manifold. Use a T so that the fuel can still flow into the manifold. If these three things check out. You need to also verify the engine is timed correctly and the timing belt did not slip a few teeth. I had a problem with my crankshaft sensor. I bought a new one and although I was getting about a .3 volt ac signal, I still had no spark at spark plugs. I wound up getting another new crankshaft sensor and read 3 volts ac from the new sensor. I then had good spark Hope this helps
