Remove the fuel pump fuse or the relay in order to disable the fuel pump. Start the engine and let it run until it stalls. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Loosen the fuel line on the control pressure regulator. Wrap a clean shop towel around the connection to catch any fuel while you loosen it. Locate the fuel filter mounted under the vehicle, below the fuel tank. Note the direction the arrow points before you remove it. Disconnect the fuel lines and remove the filter. Install the new filter and attach the fuel lines. Be sure you do not mix up the fuel supply and return lines because this will damage your fuel system. Check your owner's manual to find out if your Volkswagen Jetta also has a filter in the engine compartment near the fuel distributor. If so, disconnect the fuel lines to and from the filter. Unscrew the filter bracket and take out the filter. Place the new filter in the bracket and secure the bracket in its place. Reconnect the fuel lines. Connect the negative battery cable and replace the relay or the fuses. Start the engine of your Volkswagen Jetta, check for leaks, and make repairs if necessary.

SOURCE: how often do I change the fuel filter on my 2006

Changing the fuel filter on a gasoline Jetta is NOT included as a routine service. Which may be good news for you (i.e. they don't need to be changed). Any reputable VW technician will recommend changing the filter between 60 and 80,000 miles, as a precaution.

SOURCE: just changed oil in 2004 Volkswagen jetta. now car

Are you absolutely sure that you put the right weight oil back in the car? These cars are very sensative to this and if it doesn't see the correct oil pressure it won't start beacause it uses oil pressure to fire the fuel injectors. You need to be using 505.01 oil in your car only. Anything else can cause a no start or major engine damage!

The fuel pump is failing, where is it located on a 2004 Jetta GL 1.8 sedan?


Hello
Fuel pump is located in the fuel tank.
you need to drain the fuel tank
and then remove and let the fuel tank down away from the floor of the car there will be 2 fuel lines to disconect too
once the tank is down in the center top of the tank there is where the fuel pump is at there is a ring that holds the fuel pump into the tank this comes off by rotating to the left
the old fuel pump comes out
clean off where the new fuel pump goes
in stall the new pump and ring
raise tank
install lines and strap
add gas
good to go

2004 jetta tdi wont stay running acts like running out of fuel changed fuel filter 2 weeks ago


If you aren't getting a error code from the cars computer maybe you do have low fuel pressure.

This can be checked using a fuel pressure guage. It should be done by a mechanic who knows diesel engines and VW's in particular.
