    I just replaced the headgasket, I had the same problem with starting, and a mechanic told me it was the head gasket. after extensive work on replacing the gaskets, we still had the same problem. the car turns over but it seems theres no juice to kick it into starting. what is going on? is this electrical?

    My car was hesitating to start, then after four tries and it started. The car was making a ringing noise followed by a heavy sound as if something came loose, the car still had enough power so I can drive it to a safe place and park it. I turned off the car, smelled something burnt. Tried to turn the car back on but now it doesn't, though the car lights turn on. What do you think is wrong?

I had a similar problem..it started at fist then wouldn't turn over. does it have an alarm?, if so, the alarm could be stopping you from starting it, i disconnected the alarm and bypassed the wires, and it worked fine

For a few bucks you can check the ignition switches. this is common with the jetta. the switch is about $25.00 and is easy enough to test, remove the steering wheel cowl. the igniton switch wiring connector is on the botom right. pull the connector and connect your new switch,. use a small flat head screwdriver to turn switch over. if it is it i would suggest having your local auto tech install switch. trying to do it yourself without special tools will make you mad. good luck!!

First things first,
deactivate the imobiliser and try and start it,
if it still wont budge try it manually, by shorting
out the starter.

Just bought a vw jetta. When i test drove it everything was great. All gears were smooth and reverse worked fine. Now two days later i go out to get in it and back out the drive and it wont go into...


A standard tranny can get stuck in gear while in reverse position, like somebody slammed it into second and the linkage hit reverse instead. Could be minor, then again, It could be major. I hope it is a standard you are talking about, If it is automatic, then no, there is no switch or fuse for this, it has shift solenoids in the valve body that do the shifting, mostly electric now days, a ground wire off could cause this but I doubt it. I would get a hold of the seller and give him back his car. Hope this helps, Tranny work is $1200 minimum.

I recently replaced the battery in my 2001 Jetta TDI; it started up fine this morning, but after sitting for about 2 hours, it refuses to turn over. It cranks very hard and all the lights come on, so it...


Check, clean and tight correctly the battery leads. If the problem still occurs remove the electrical starter motor out from the engine, repair it (change carbon brushes, bearings, ...) and install it back in place. Then test the engine. It should cranking & start immediately.
Good Luck!

2000 Jetta 1.9 TDI is reading 2 codes for electrical connecton


The torque converter clutch circuit is built onto the tranny. You can see the plugin. You can disconnect this and will be ok, Otherwise it is expensive to fix

The crank sensor sends informaiton to car's computer telling it to give power to the motor. If the crank sensor is shot, then your car probably will turn over but won't start. Or won't always start until it is completely bad and won't start at all.

95 Jetta won't start weird buzzing sound near fuses


Jettas were notorious for electrical issues. I fought with one for 2 years.
The starter relay is on top of the starter in the center rear of the engine compartment near the firewall. Its mounted at the top of the bell housing, underneath the intake and next to the exhaust manifold and hard to get at from both the top and bottom. Personally, I'd take it to a good respectable foreign mechanic. Not worth fighting with

1998 volkswagon jetta manual transmission is hard to shift


Transmission problem...

I'd check the fluid levels... on most if not all 98's there is no tranny fluid stick so you have to either look for the plug on the transmission. Most cars have 2. One on the bottom and one half way up from the bottom of the transmission driver's side. Top it off until the tranny fluid runs out of the hole.

If this doesnt help... you need to get it checked.

95 Jetta, not starting?


does the car have an alarm system? if so what kind is it. some alarms prevent the car from starting if it sences a problem. it is possible that you hooked up the stereo and it is causing a malfunction in the starting.
