Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

I have a 2003 VW Jetta. It has done 80,000km and I recently saw black oil on the garage floor where the car was parked. Took it to the dealership and they told me there is leaking transmission fluid and to fix it will cost $2500. I thought that is very expensive. What is your opinion?

I have a 2003vw jetta the epc light is on and the will not come out of park nor the stop lights come on,I have already changed the brake switch and still won't work..


EPC light should have nothing to do with the shift interlock,(EPC is traction control) should be a small cap or plug on the console, near the shifter that has the interlock disengage button,usually done with a key,check shift interlock in the owners manual.
