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.

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.
