  1. Jetta Troubleshooting
    First off hello everyone. I am glad I found this site!:D I have an 03 Jetta with 2.0 I just purchased about a month ago. The P2181 trouble code appeared shortly after I purchased it. I have replaced the thermostat (twice), water pump, coolant temp sensor and the code has returned again a day...
  2. Jetta Troubleshooting
    I have had problems with my Jetta on and off for about 4 months now. I searched several forums and there seems to be no solution, or maybe a bigger problem. I have a 2001, 1.8t. 130k, 5spd. All of my problems started after I had my car shipped from Oregon to Miami in July. In Miami I was driving...
  3. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    I have a 2001 Jetta 1.8t wolfsburg edition. It started running weird yesterday. It was idling rough and missing. I was able to drive it but it wouldn't go above 55mph and it started stinking. I checked the codes and it said cylinder 2 was misfiring. So i got all new spark plugs, didn't fix it...
  4. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    I've got a 2002 mkiv Jetta, 2.0l, 118k miles. It took a little while but it's running great right now, no problems I can notice. The issue is that the Check Engine Light never goes away. We clear it, it comes back, ad infinitum. It's out of inspection, so I've gotta get this fixed before I can...

  7. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    My car is VR6 2.8L 12v, it has a strange behaviour of misfire. The car trembles a lot at the first cold start in a day. It feels a lot better when the engine rpm drops to smoother idle. What makes it different than a common misfire is the car has plenty of power at lower gear and lower speed...
  8. Jetta Troubleshooting
    I live in Canada, and own a 2007 Jetta City. Its got just under 50 000 kms on it and has been running beautifully for the month I bought her from the dealership. Yesterday it was -30 and I warmed up the car before driving. The car was idle for 10-15 minutes. I hopped in after brushing the snow...
  9. Jetta Troubleshooting
    P0420 engine light error just came on today in my 2003 Jetta GLX w/2.8 motor. I did some google search and it all came up for 1.8 T and 2.0 engine, nothing for 2.8 motor. The engine runs and drives great without any hesitation. It does use a little more gas than I'd like to, but it's cold...
  10. VW Jetta MKV 2005.5–2010
    I have a 2005.5 2.5 Jetta. 69k miles. The Check Engine Light indicating a problem in the exhaust system will come on and then go away a few days later. Then it will reappear. The appearance and disappearance appear completely random. I'm going to look at the computer, but any ideas on what...
  11. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    Ok, the CEL was on, went to autozone to get it tested to see what it was, well, they gave me a code for random engine misfire. We got the stuff we needed (nothing for the CEL, just oil and stuff) and went to leave, tried to start, nothing. I have full power to everything, lights radio...
