If you have the 2.0L motor than NO. You have to remove the timing belt to access some of the water pump bolts.

SOURCE: 2001 VW GTI VR6 alarm goes off randomly... make it

could possibly be a faulty latch. door latch, trunk latch, hood latch. something sporadically not recognizing a closed latch to cause it to go off sporadically. a scan with a vw scan tool or a vag com should detect a fault in the convenience system.

SOURCE: 2001 Jetta VR6, 76k miles. Transmission fluid leaking.

Auto or Std trans??

If auto here's the issue...

Keep in mind Auto transmissions don't like to be run dry.

Also keep in mind that the 01M Automatic you most likely have retails for like $4000 just for the unit, not installation.

The corner trans guy can't rebuild the trans. This is a special unit

Just to check the fluid-

Hook up a Laptop with Vag.Com software installed.

Start the car and go into the transmissions data blocks and go to block 005, this will display fluid temp.

-ATF temperature not above approx. 30C (86F)
-Vehicle level
-Selector lever in "P"
-If ATF is below 30C (86F) bring the ATF up to test temperature.
Test temperature: 35C to 45 (95 to 113F)
-Remove ATF level plug from oil pan.


If ATF drips out of hole:
ATF need not be topped up.
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.

If ATF does not drip out
-Remove plug from filler line.
-Fill with VW ATF (G 052 162 A2) until ATF runs out of level hole
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm (11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.

Too little or too much ATF will adversely affect transmission function.

SOURCE: 2000 VW jetta VR6 windshield wipers wont work

first try the fues box see if you have a blown fues, next if you put your wipers on can you hear the motor running for them? if you can the linkage has poped off from the motor, its a bit awkward to get it back on and no gaurentee that it will saty on, you might have to replace linkage, or, it might be the cogs on the actual wiper arms have splayed and are now smooth so they dont grip to move, you can take them off by the nut on the arm , get a can (coke can or simular) cut a rectangle out of it the hight and width if the cog, rap it round the cog, (make sure it does not overlap on the ends) and force the arm back into place and then do the nut up, this is just a short quick fix if that is the case you will have to replace the motor, also you can check the relay to the motor in the fues box, give it a tap a couple of times it might work again if not replace it...hope you find these sugestions helpful

SOURCE: 1996 VW Passat VR6 is overheating

Thermostat is most likely. Try that first, then my next choice would be water pump. Good luck.

Auxillary water pump

a great AUX water pump can be added on most vehicles by adding a TEE to the heater hose that feeds your heater core. Although your heater will not be as hot. Assuming that is not an issue.

From the TEE, add a hose to an electric water pump from a HVAC company. There are many and they are designed for hot water and pressure. if it is just pumping you want, then run the output right back to the radiator ( top hose - typically ) and it will be cooled by the radiator.

If you are looking for MORE cooling capacity, then run your AUX water through another radiator or coil of copper someplace convenient, and then back to the radiator. Depending on your needs, make the pump as large as your heat problem demands. remember - if your engine is not running and feeding this type of system, you may starve the AUX pump for water. the engine water pump is priming the AUX pump in this configuration. Good luck , Be cool :)

I have a 2001 vw jetta vr6 glx wagon with a manual 5 speed, the water pump bearing has went bad causing the belt to come apart so I need to replace the pump. What literature I have found lists a 50+ step...

The engine can be unbolted from a passenger side dog bone support and lowered enough to allow the removal of the pump because the frame blocks it in due to proximity. This is the best & correct procedure. Good Luck!

I have a 2001 VW Jetta VR6 and wanted to ask where the thermostat was located.

The thermostat is located on the intake manifold (on top of your engine). Look for the radiator hose clamped to an inlet pipe on the top of your engine. the thermostat is inside of this inlet pipe. Remove the two bolts and there it is.

01 vw jetta vr6 was over heating. after close inspection, saw that hose was leaking only problem it's deep under all theses other hoses. plus area is tight to get to. how should i approach the repair..

the easy way is to undo one end and put a piece of pipe into the old and new pipe and pull it through to the other end....or you could use a piece of string and thread it through.......whatever....

Wher is the thermoswitch located on volswagen golf se106 automatic?

Behind the water pump housing on the block. Follow the lower radiator hose. For a VR6 it's on the plastic flange together with the temp sender.
