Question about 2008 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

I went to change the oil filter on my 2008 Jetta 2.0 Turbo engine and when I spun off the filter (came off easily), I realized that the threaded fitting that should stay in the engine block came out with the filter (someone at the Auto Parts store looked at it, and told me that the VW dealership (who changed it last) must have tightened the filter too tight, because that fitting shouldn't have come out of the engine block.....because of this, I wasn't able to change the filter cartridge.......does this sound like a common problem with this motor? I plan to bring it back to the dealership and tell them of the issue.

SOURCE: Changed oil in 05 vw jetta and exhaust light came on.

Hi Dohn. The save levelto fill you oil is 3/4 from empty on your dip stick. This gives the engine space to breath. What has most likely happened here is, the engine has had too much oil and is trying to find a way out which will end up on your drive or through yor exhaust.

SOURCE: oil light blinks on my 2004 vw jetta

has the dealer hooked up a mechanical test guage to see if the oil pressure is really low? If it is low make them fix it, low oil pressure will destroy the engine in a very short time. Low oil pressure is caused by either worn engine bearings or a defective oil pump.

The problem more than likely is the water pump. Like many VW's the water pump is plastic and it starts to fall apart after 50,000 miles. Coincidentally when you warranty ends.

How to Replace leaking Oil filter housing 1997 VW Jetta 2.0 Gas


Remove the oil filter and there is a nut that you take off (same threads as oil filter) the oil filter adapter will become loose, continue to slide it off, on the engine side of the adapter is the O-Ring, replace the o-ring and install in reverse order.

sorry....you have spun a rod bearing the engine nose is the piston hitting the bottom of the cylinder head, because the rod bearing has spun and have stacked on top of each other, sounds like you are going to need an engine, but the good news is there a lot of used ones out there, check with your local salvage yard.

I am having trouble locating the air filter on my 2008 vw jetta.


How to change air filter

1. Unplug the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor.
2. Undo the spring clips and pull out the turbo inlet connector. 3. Remove the two T-25 screws on the air snorkle as shown below. 4. Remove the engine cover by pulling up HARD where indicated by the green circles in the photo below. 5. DO NOT APPLY ANY FORCE where indicated by the red diamonds in the photo below. 6. If it's cold weather, make sure the engine is warm so that the rubber grommets warm up and are flexible enough to come off. Cold, brittle plastic and stiff grommets will lead to a broken airbox/cover even if you otherwise do everything correctly. 7. Pull up on the rear driver's corner (near the battery box) first, then the rear corner where the MAF sensor is, then the fronts.

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100
http://turbosandparts.com/
It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

I have a 2002 VW Jetta TDI and am problems with turbo.


Hallo
1.Disconect lower hose from intercooler and oil (from 0,1 liter or more) (sometimes 1-2 liters) comes out, you should not drive it.(car had probably loose power) Change the turbine, oil and oil filter. do not forget to disconect lower hose and let oil drain out. Otherwise when new turbine is instald, the air flow will **** this oil inside the engine and distroy it.
2.your car is not designed to run without turbine and will not work like normal disel.(SDI).
hope it helps

How to change an air filter on a 2008 jetta 2.0 turbo


On the VW Jetta MkV, the cabin filter is underneath the glove box. Access is gained by removing two plastic screws, gently pulling down a piece of foam insulation, and releasing a single clip to detach the filter. It (and some debris from it) fall easily onto the floor mat below. Insert the new cabin filter, replace the insulation, re-screw the screws, and within 3 minutes, you're back in business with fresh air and clean hands besides!

Need a new Turbo for my 2000 Jetta TDI


hi turbos are not the easiest thing to change on any car firstly you can get recondtioned ones for half the price of the dealers one and it has the same warrenty but they are all funny about getting someone who knows what there doing to fit them as the problem with turbos is the heat they generate and need a good oil supply to them so they usually insist on replacing the oil pipes and changing the oil and filter and clearing all the inlet pipes of blockages and flushing the its oil cooler as for the catalystic converter the problem your fiance is going to have is that this is another item that gets that hot when you come to remove them the bolts and sensors are weled together and are very difficult to remove it all depends on how good at taking things apart and putting them back together he is best of luck yates210456

Engine oil indicator blinking


Sounds like it could be a sludge issue which can be caused from using the incorrect oil. It is a very specific synthetic type of oil that VW suggests and when you don't use it the engine can actually 'gunk' up and cause turbo failure. (This problem happened when a non-vw dealer sold me my car with the wrong type of synthetic in it and my turbo seized)
