Question about Volkswagen Jetta

My car was diagnosed but all they would tell me is that its misfiring. I have a 2001 VW Jetta 1.8L Turbo. I dont have the codes but they said a lot of misfiring codes came up. How do i go about fixing this myself. Thank you

The most convenient and economical way of fixing this problem is to have another diagnostic test done. You could try to erase the errors as sometimes a loose wiring could trigger an error. Once you clear the error then test the car for a day or more and observe if errors are coming back. If you do get any errors (in the form of check engine light or maintenance light) then re-connect the diagnostic tool to the vehicle and retrieve and note the codes. This is how you need to fix this problem and any other alternatives will waste time and money. Every code has a meaning, so do take note of all the codes. Once you get the code then do few google search for the meaning which is the next step in troubleshooting. I hope this clears your mind on what to follow and the steps involved. Good luck with it.

When driving, the turbo shuts down and I lose power. After shutting the car off for 15-20 minutes, the turbo resets and works again. Sometimes it will work for a few days, other times it may only work...


Check the spark plugs, I have seen several VW turbos with this problem. The aluminum heads expand and contract to fast and crack the porcelain on the plug causing the engine to misfire when the turbo spools up and makes boost. The misfire drops the engine and trans into a "safe mode" where it loses power.

1999 VW Passat 1.8 turbo Code #3 cylinder misfire. Replaced coil and all plugs, still have misfire...???


Coils and plugs are not the only things that can cause misfires. Misfires can be caused by vacuum leaks, low compression, faulty fuel injectors, clogged EGR ports (on vehicles with individual ports for each cylinder), blown head gaskets, burned valves...you can spend a LOT of money on parts by just going in and replacing things without diagnosing WHY the cylinder is misfiring.
