SOURCE: Surges in RPM while at idle

It may be one of two things. A intermittent problem with the idle air control sensor or the throttle position sensor. Have the cars computer scanned at a local auto parts store to see if there is a pending code that has yet to turn on the check engine light.

SOURCE: looking for timing belt marks on vw 2 liter jetta

There is no manual adjustment for timing, this is done digitally by using a VAG 1552 scan tool or equivalent. Now if timing mark is all you need just to serve your curiosity then there are a couple.

Set engine to TDC for cylinder #1 by turning the crankshaft until timing mark on flywheel or torque converter aligns with marks on the transmission case.

  • Manual Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on the flywheel lines up with notch at inspection hole on manual trans.

  • Automatic Transmission
Confirm that engine is set to TDC for cyl #1 by checking that the timing mark on torque coverter lines up with the edge of the inspection hole on automatic transmission.

Remove upper toothed belt cover. Once removed, you will see the letters O.T. with an arrow on the upper rear toothed belt guard. Check that mark on camshaft pulley is aligned with mark on toothed belt guard. This brings camshaft to TDC for cyl. #1.

It is unlikely that a belt has skipped a cog, but if that happens your engine will run very rough or not operate at all. You might have other issue in the air metering sensors (MAF) which doesn't take account of temperature. That means whether the engine is cold or holt it will always run rough and definitely activate an MIL.

SOURCE: I'm trying to buy a good vw jetta, I found one

Most VW are interferance motors. That would mean the pistons could have hit some valves. I would stay away.
Also have you seen the motor? I may be off but I thought the VR6's had a chain. Even if, its still an interfernce motor.

Francis, stop trowing parts at the car that you do not need, could it be that all you need is a idle activation, takes 2 minutes with the right vw tool. first you need to get the codes. then you go from there. do not put in any more money to the car. and make sure they use a vw comparable scanner. good luck.

Jump starting a cpu controlled vehicle by the incorrect use of the cables will damage the cpu unit by the surge of current that is delivered to it. Have the cpu check out. It is not a matter of positive to positive and negative to negative as it was with older cars.

Engine surges of ~150 RPMs on a 1-2 second cycle under certain circumstances. Idle is smooth, driving in gear ratios 1-3 of the auto tranny is completely smooth. Immediately upon the auto tranny shifting...


Tell them to wear a ski mask the next time you pull into the dealership it helps set the tone for a stick up.

Strauss, Pep Boys, Napa (participating stores) just about anyone would do it for at least $500 to $800.

There are many number of reasons for this problem...but a VERY common one is a faulty thermo sensor which controls air / fuel ratio.

2002 vw bettle tdi surging, only at idle in gear. clears up under power


is this model common rail or does it have an injector pump,injector pump has a built in lift pump and if this is weak then the transfer pressure is low which is causing scavanging.if this is the case then fitting an in line non return valve in the fuel in line can help,but more often than not fitting a low pressure in line fuel pump is a cheaper solution than an injector pump overhaul
