Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Hi this sounds rather bad, are you putting it in 3rd gear to start as this would be easier than 1st, can you turn the engine by hand? as the engine could be seized or worse still the cam belt broken and the pistons are hitting the valves, you need to check these things really before trying to start it as you could cause allot of damage to the engine if you have not already done so by push starting it, you also can try jacking up the front so that both wheels are off the ground, put it in 4th gear and try turning the wheels with your hand only one side, if both wheels turn you should be ok, if it is impossible to turn the wheels, you have a seized engine..hope this helps, get back to me when you have tried these things first..ok
