I`ve got an issue with my 97 Jetta GL 2.0L. Essentially, just towards the cabin, farthest from the front, is a valve of some sort that two lines connect to. It's close to the oil cap. It shot off this...


need a picture. but if something shot off, your oil presure rings on your pistons might be gone. does the car seem sluggish?

i know there's a one wire ouil presure switch next to the cylinder head. but cant think of another sensor besides the map sensor on the side of the intake manifold. that has 4 wires.

My 97 jetta wont runin the rain but runs great any other time can u tell me y


Either the distributer cap or wires are bad. Open hood when its dark and look for sparks in those areas. Replace as needed.

My jetta wont start, getting a cherping sound from under the hood


A chirping sound like gasses blowing through a small gap????
If so it may be a headgasket blown. To diagnose, 1 check in oil cap and dipstick for a white/grey sludge deposits showing water and oil mixing. 2 check coolant filler cap for similar sludge deposits. 3 check around the top of the cylinder block for signs of oil or carbon "blow outs". Do a cylinder compression test on all cylinders and compare the readings(1 or more lower readings will show a problem).
If all ok, check the inlet gasket for leaks, will see signs of oil/fuel leaks.
If you are losing power and using more fuel then normal it could be either of the above, if you are also losing water as well as power, points towards head gasket.
I can't think of any other possabilities, so good luck.

Maybe catylitic converter?


Hi.
A sulphurous smell can be caused by an over-rich mixture or poor combustion sending unburned fuel to the catalytic converter.

I would suggest getting a fault-code readout which might start to point you towards the cause of the problem. Sorry I cannot be more specific, but all you really need to know is that you are requiring the services of a VW engineer !
Good Luck, D.
