Haven't seen a starter for a manual vehicle before. Mostly because if you leave it in gear and start it without the clutch depressed, the vehicle will move.

Two points to consider, one is if you can find one , two finding someone to do it, for proper installion the starter has to be linked to the parking brake and to the shifter or trans, if the car is not in neutral and parking brake on is should not function at all, too many stories about cars being started in gear. most people i know will not install one on a manual, shop insurance does not cover

How can I go about turning my automatic 97 vw jetta into a Manuel?


there will be a lot of work involved . You have to fit a clutch pedal and brackets under the dash. Fit a clutch master cylinder in the engine compartment. Install a line to the slave cylinder . Fir wiring for the clutch and so on . Manuals are cheap and the trade on an automatic makes more sense . Cost it out including all the problems you will encounter and you will find a change of car a better idea.

My starter heats up right after I install without starting my car


Check it ground wires. Could be loose causing it to arch and get hot

97 VW Jetta GLS, manual transmission. The speedometer stopped working & the fuel gauge is jumping around.


Hi Ken You seem to have two faults with your vehicle. One will be a speed sensor and the other possibly a bad connection. Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and pin point the problems (which the scan will do) and then sort them out. Regards John

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.

You'll need to disconnect the high and low pressure lines from the compressor. Unplug the electrical connector for the compressor. Remove the belt. Unbolt the compressor from the motor. Reinstall, connect a vacuum pump to the high side A/C fitting, start the vacuum pump, run pump until to have about 15psi of vacuum and then disconnect the pump and refill with refrigeraint.

97 vw jetta w/aftr mkt. alarm drains battery and disarms on own?


My friend you are faced with a catch 22 problem. The first thing I would like to know is, who installed the alarm system? Did you do it or was it professionally installed. If it wwas professionally installed I would go right back there and discuss the problem with them. It very well could be a defective unit. If you did not have it installed professionally I would disconnect the alarm and see if your battery still get's drained.If so, then the alarm is not the culprit, and you have some hunting to do. If not then you have some testing to do.Next what type of alarm is it? Try to google it. You may be able to find a trouble shooting guide to assist you. I know that you said you just replaced the battery, but the alarm very well may not be the culprit. It could be many other things as a loose fanbelt, bad diodes in your alternator, or some other componet draining your battery.
