Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

My engine light is still flashing

I have a 2000 VW Jetta 2.0L 4 cly. My mom handed it down to me. It has about 180K in miles. Me and my dad recently gave it a tune up and oil change. It ran fine for a while, but later started bucking. Then we put new spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, ignition coil, and a oversized plug for the oil pan, it was leaking oil. It was running good for 2 days and started acting up again. I found out my mom wasn't taking good care of it and drove it from RI to PA several times without giving it tune-ups and oil changes as needed. I took it to Auto Zone to check the engine light 8 codes came up. P0411, P0138, P0139, P0303, P0301, P0300, P1237, one of them I fixed myself. I planned on getting a O2 sensor but my mom said she put one in not to long ago but it has to be in there wrong. I'm pretty much feed up with it. Can you please tell me what you think I should do and what parts I may need to get to fix this problem, please. Thanks in Advance. Boss Lady

What Auto Zone doesn't do when it reads the stored DTCs is tell you the probable causes and what has to be repaired or replaced or retuned. You need to find a competent mechanic, not just a parts replacer, who will read the stored DTCs and determine what has to be done.

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

Believe the COIL pack went bad causing the sensor to clog and go bad--Probably could have just cleaned it.

The oil in the spark plug may cause the car to run sluggish. The oil may prevent the spark plug from firing correctly or cause you to burn oil. You may want to replace the oil seals around the spark plug holes by removing the valve cover and you should be able to change the oil seals underneath the cover. While at it check the engine for loose wire connections and loose vacuum hoses.

I have a 2000 VW Jetta and the trans fluid just leaked out!


if you can do it yourself get under the car and make sure that the pan bolts are tight if they are look for any hoses going to and from trans make sure that they are all connected and tight even though the fluid never has to be changed there is still a fill tube make sure that the end of the tube that goes into the tranny is secure and tight being that you had alot of engine work done its possible that one or all of these things could be wrong could have inadverntenly loosened it up and forgot to retighten. hope this at least gives you a starting point.

Believe it or not, this could be a mass airflow issue. The mass airflow can trigger the lights the ASR and the EPC lights. When i gets really cold, the airflow sensor sends signals to the CPU to readjust the air/fuel mixture.

Electronic immobilizer


most likely cause is the gauge cluster, this will have to be tested and service by your local dealership because the dash cluster and keys have to be coded. I have seen the immobilizer loose it's coding for apearantly no reason. therefore have them recode cluster and see if problem goes away, if it doesn't the gauge cluster will have to be replaced.

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.
