Question about 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

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 procedure of removing and relocating engine bay items and unbolting and lifting the engine and trans to the driver side to remove the pump. Other information says that 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. Which way is valid so that I can do this correctly without taking it to a shop? I have always done my own work except for transmissions but this is the first time I have worked on a vw.

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!

The Jetta vr6 has a timing chain. These don't have to be replaced unless the gear is worn. When worn they will jump timing by a tooth or two. This will cause the engine to run rough.

You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.
