The best thing to do is borrow the on board diagnostics scan tool OBD II (for free at your local auto parts store) and then hook it up underneath the drivers side steering wheel. This electronic tool will obtain the trouble codes stored inside your VW Jetta's computer. Write the codes down and then look in the back of a Haynes repair manual (also at auto parts store) and match the codes up to the codes found in that repair book. This will save you time and money and pinpoint the exact componant that has failed on your car

try a new fuel filter if you haven't replaced it already. you may have a weak injection pump; does it crank for a long time before it starts?

You might have a clogged Catalytic converter aka Cat.. Use a Vacuum gauge and insert it into vacuum system and check for vacuum reading. A gradual drop in Hg's from 20 Hg's to 0 at idle indicates a clogged Cat.

95 cherokee sport stalling


Since the car stall only in the drive position, it sounds(i'm not there to actually ck the car)like when the engine torques, it might be pulling on a harness somewhere and killing the ignition. Do this,start the car and under the hood while the engine is running, move or jiggle the harnesses around and see if the car stalls. If the car stalls try to pinpoint the location on the harness and look for frayed or broken wires.

Jumps when I pull away first thing in the morning, no problem when warm (1999 Jetta GL)


the same thing happend to my 1996 jetta trek. when u put it in reverse to start off anywhere its perfectly fine. but when u put it into drive it stalls for a few seconds than jumps.
The transmission is going to go out on you anyday.
mine blew on me about a month when this started happening to me.
i was driving and the car just randomly went into neutral, tried all the gears and all i had was reverse.
BLOWN!

took it to 2 different places to get it fixed, 1st place asked $3500, 2nd place asked $2500.
too much money so we had a family friend put a rebuilt tranny in for $1600.
