My 2001 new beetle 1.8 turbo started ticking and won't pull good... Did I blow my motor ?


You need to stop driving the car asap before the engine seizes. Check the oil cap and see inside if it looks all black and tarry then you have a sludged up engine. The Sludge is burnt on oil that is blocking the oil pump screen.
Sounds pretty bad but there is good news in that there is a recall for that engine for sludging. But VW will only honor it if you have proof of most your oil changes. (issue is these engines need synthetic oil and vw failed to mention this to their customers.)

If you don't have this info then you will need to clean the sludge out your self. I would first drop the oil pan and clean the pan, screen and most likely replace the oil pump. (its only bolted on). This will save your engine from failure but you are still not done. After you are done replacing the parts you need to add 1/2 quart of auto transmission fluid to your oil change. the detergents in the atf will help remove the rest of the sludge that has built up inside the engine. atf is oil so continue adding this to the oil change until you don't see any more black tar on the oil cap.

Good luck

Phil.

ps I've been down this road with a wolfsburgh Jetta 1.8t so I know the pain of sludge too well.

2001 vw jetta changing trans oil


Your 2001 VW Jetta is likely equipped with a "sealed" transmission unit. There is no dipstick that you can use to measure the level of transmission fluid in sealed transmissions. Unfortunately, it's a dealer item that needs to be addressed by a qualified mechanic or at a VW dealer.

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

My 1998 VW Jetta TDI (230,000 miles) recently developed cold starting problems. I replaced the glow plugs with no change in starting performance. The problem seemed to start when an oil change tech put...


sluggish/cold start "problems"with any VW group product can be put down,in a lot of cases,to dirty injector nozzles,use redexe/wynns injector cleaner at 1 can to 1/2 tank fuel and you will feel a difference.as for the oil,VW group,use 10/40 semi synthetic in ALL their engines.(except w12 0/40)using a thin oil would pass the rings/valve guides and cause a carbon buildup inside the chamber......try it and see.....

You need VW silicone sealant D 176 404 A2.
  • Apply 2 to 3mm (1/8") bead of new sealant to oil pan sealing surface. Be sure to run bead on the inside of the bolt holes.
  • Immediately install oil pan to cylinder block and loosely install M7 bolts diagonally.
  • Install and lightly tighten M10 bolts securing oil pan to transmission.
  • Diagonally tighten M7 oil pan bolt further, but not final torque.
  • Diagonally torque M7 bolts securing oil pan to cylinder block.
  • Oil pan to transmission (M10)... 45 Nm(33 ft-lb)
  • Oil pan to cylinder block (M7)...15 Nm(11 ft-lb)
  • Wait 30 minutes as prescribed and refill with proper viscosity and quantity of engine oil.
