Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My tras. will not always go into reverse when you stop and need to back up. 2 things happen and have only found two things that will get it back on trac. when this happens the lights surrounding the (P R D 2 - ) start to flash and turn from red to black flashing and it seems to want to go into reverse but won't. I have to turn off the ignition and re-start. Everything seems to be just fine till you need to back-up again. It has the problen pretty often but but not every time! Does anyone out ther know where to start looking as I have spoken with 4 different dealers but I get the same old answer, WE HAVEN'T HERD OF (THIS B-4) . I HAVE SEEN A COUPLE OF MESSAGES ON LINE ABOUT THIS BUT CAN'T FIND THEM NOW! Thanks for anyone's help! Please! There is a flight on the dash but the dealers don't seem to know what it means even after they d-code it! Who would guess.<!-- from fixya rte -->

I use Rotella T synthetic-it is specifically designed for a diesel. The 100,00 mile timing belt service is essential -also change the water pump and tensioners at the same time. A couple of other issues-if it is an automatic have the transmission fluid changed at no more than 50,000 miles. The intake manifold also clogs up at about 100,000 miles. I have 212,000 miles on mine(2002) and I drove about 500 miles yesterday at 41 MPG.

Yes, they use 5w40 and need timing belts replaced at 100,000 miles.
