Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

I have an 2003 VW Jetta and I was hearing this ticking sound coming from underneath the hood of the car. Now my car won't start. A few days ago I checked my oil and its was very low. So, I put oil in it until I could get an oil change. Now my car will not start. What could this be?

The ticking sound is a valve ticking probably sticking if your car doesnt start now its probably cause the valve dropped and fell in the cyc and now froze the motor i would recommend not trying to start it again or it could harm your car more ....hope i could help Shane

Car not start after overheating


I was driving at about 65 mph on the highway and the first thing i noticed was the trac off light blinking on and off. Also, there was some sporadic sound coming from somewhere and thought nothing of it. Then, I couldnt accelerate anymore and pulled to the side right away as the engine was thumping. Opened the hood and saw smoke coming out. I had also put antifreeze in the car a few days ago and it was bone dry. So apparently, I have a leak. I tried to start the car again after an hour and half with antifreeze in the car and nothing. Anyone have any suggestions??? I should mention that i do hear the engine trying to ignite but it sounds like its misfiring and it won't start.

Have you checked the radio fuse? You may have blown the fuse when you jumped the car. The fuse box should be out under the hood encased in black plastic.
