My 97 VW Jetta GT will not go pass 65mph, I change the spark plug ,spark plug wires and oil change still nothing.


You could have a compression issue with one or more of the cylinders, meaning they aren't pumping out full power.

I'd recommend taking it to an engine tuning garage, and asking them to run a diagnostic on the ECU, and also mechanically check the engine to see that all cylinders are doing their job.

Check your coolant level and condition. If you havent' replaced the coolant in a while then change it. You can drain it from the bottom of the radiator plug. You may also want to change your oil and oil fiter.

Your Jetta 2 modulator is not compatible with the Jetta 3 electronics, especially when it comes to the coil as they give different stokes of spark to the distributor. Oil switch must have a pressure leak. Replace the switch as a small leak of pressure can cause the sensor buzzer to sound. The modulator have no influence on the oil pressure switch.

I don't know where you can find one I searched but could not find one. Oil changes ever 3000 miles. Spark plugs and air filters every 30,000 miles, Timing belt every 100,000 miles. Serpentine belt check for crackes on the groved side at every oil change, if any sign of wear change. Top off all fluids when oil changes are done.

There are two coolant temp sensors. One by the oil filler tube and one near the bottom radiator hose near the radiator.
When you flushed the coolant did you replace with VW rated G12 coloant? Very Important! - You can't use over the counter coolant - it'll cause sludge in your system. You have to use G12...

97 Diesel Jetta OIL LIGHT sensors mistake (Require?)Burping of a coolant system?


Most probably an air pocket in ur coolant system, just let it run without the cap on the coolant bowl until no bubbles come out.
As for ur oil light and buzzing, it's most probably the low oil level sensors tripping out, which is normal for a VW.

There are two oil sensors, one on the front of the engine near the distributor and one on the right hand side of motor when ur facing the motor. The are both the same size and have only 1 wire on em.

If i remember one has a white connector and one has a black connector. Costs about 20 bucks for the pair.

Good luck and get back to me if u have questions.
