Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

99 VR6 blew up

My car stahled out and wouldn't restart. I got it towed two days later and the guy told me to turn it over and it blew up, shattering the casing that goes over the engine. It had all the fluids it needed and had just recently had the oil changed so its nothing like that. could it be the gaskets or the converter?

You may have cooked the engine.
It sounds like the head gasket may have blown, and you could be leaking coolant into the cylinders.

Sometimes my 2008 sonata won't start back up after turning off engine, I have to wait at least 20-45 minutes for it to start back up. I hear 1 click when I turn the key and everything else seems to...


Sounds like it could be a similar issue to what I just went through. My car wouldn't start on two separate occasions after I had refilled my tank. First time happened a little over a month ago, the starter would crank, and crank, but no signs of life in the engine. Tested the spark plugs, I was getting spark, but the ****** wouldn't start.
Had it towed to the dealership, and they said after 4 long attempts, they got it to start. I took it home, and the next morning I couldn't start it again. Towed it back a second time, and it started right up for them. Drove it back home again and a a month later things started acting up again.
A few days ago the wife pulled the car out of the garage, where the car was level, stopped the car on our slanted driveway and when she came back to start it just minutes later, it hesitated, but did turn over. I filled up the tank and the very next morning, I could not start my car again.
Called for a tow from AAA, and the driver said "let me try something". Pulled out a hammer, and wacked the bottom of my gas tank 4 or 5 times. The tow guy gets in, tuns the ignition to engage the fuel pump (didn't turn the key all the way), he does this about 4 times, then the very next turn of the key it starts right up. The driver said it sounded like a bad fuel pump.
I drive the car back to the dealership (this is the third time) and talk to the same guy I had dealt with all along. He calls me later in the day to tell me they finally got it to not start and were able to isolate the problem to the fuel pump sensor. They replaced the fuel pump assembly and I was off and running.
Hope this helps!

wow!!!!, this would drive me nuts,i would take it back to the dealer and tell them that i was told the problem was the module and they even made me buy theres, you paid them,they didnt diagnose the problem correctly,theres a problem with the abs,wiring or sensor or something, the point is you are having the exact same problem you paid for!! they need to repair this car even if they have to remove the module they put in that didnt repair it! talk to the owner this should not cost you anymore $,smiple they charged you and installed a part that did not fix the car,simple! if all fails file complaint with dmv and also advise them you will do so. good luck, let me know what happens, this is crazy the dealer cant fix there own make of car.

Whining noise


i assumed it was a vacuum leak from the start. i search for it for 2 days checking all the hoses until i finally broke down and took it to the shop. my mechanic immediatly told me it was a vacuum leak too but unfortunatly did couldn't find it right away and i would have to leave it for him to fix. so after not 1 but 3 days and $90 later he told me that upon removal of my intake i had accidentally losened my throttle body from the intake manifold and blew out the gasket.
