Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

My Jetta won't start when its hot outside!

I have a 1998 Volkswagen Jetta GT that was given to me from my dad. Recently, it has not been starting when its hot (usually above 18-20 degrees Celsius). I got the OBDII scanned because my Check Engine light has been on too, and it said something about the Cam Shaft Sensor, so I dont know if that has to do anything with the starting problem. I've filled the coolant, turned on all the interior lights, turned everything on inside (the radio, signals, headlights, A/C, fan) and still nothing. Here are the Stats on my car: - 1998 VW Jetta GT 2.0L - Manual Transmission - 271, 000 kms
If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Michael .

Get the camshaft sensor replaced.this should cure your bad start problem,its not an expensive part,and the car can be scanned after for any other faults.

Engine Malfunction


I have a 95 Jetta and had the same problem. My alarm kept taking over my car preventing it from starting. I paid to have the alarm removed and now no problems.
