Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 vw jetta tdi? My car acts like it is not getting any fuel to the fuel pump, does anyone have any suggestions? We have rcently replaced the fuel filter and also a fuel shut off mechanism that comes off of the injector pump...
It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.
