  2. VW Jetta MKII 1985–1992
    I have a 1992 Diesel Jetta non turbo that was leaking fuel. When I brought it to the mechanic they told me it had to do with the fuel injection pump. It was going to cost over $1000 for them to repair it so I thought I would do it myself. I bought a used Fuel injector pump online and all the...
  3. VW Jetta TDI / Diesel / Bluemotion
    1998 VW Jetta diesel (I tired to post this to the classifieds section, but the site would not allow me to make a post.) The car runs and drives. I bought the car for an engine swap, but after making a few repairs, I don't think it is worth the effort to continue with it. It leaks oil after...

    High guys, new to the forum. I have owned my TDI for about two years and it's always ran great. Last week my timing belt flew off, resulting in bent valves. From what I have priced out it seems cheaper to purchase a cylinder head with the valves, camshaft, etc, all ready to go. My only...

  6. Jetta Troubleshooting
    Changing out my passenger CV axle and saw what looks to be my gearbox's oil seal sticking out. It's a green mettle protrusion w a lip that is sticking out about an 1/8 in from the housing. I would imagine this should be flush. Pried on it a bit to see if it moves and it doesn't. Parts break...

  10. VW Jetta TDI / Diesel / Bluemotion
    I've done a mk3 dash swap in my car and am using gauges from a 2.0 gasser. I was wondering how far of would the fuel gauge be, and would it be possible just to swap the sending unit around instead of the tank (I know gassers it's not possible due to the fuel pump) but since there is no fuel...

    I've done a full mk3 dash swap in my '91 diesel, and have a couple questions about the cluster. *Is the gasser fuel gauge compatable with that of diesels?(mk2 and mk3) *how far off should I expect the fuel gauge to be? *can a mk3 diesel sending unit be installed in the mk2 tank...

  13. VW Jetta TDI / Diesel / Bluemotion
    Well obviously all of the diesel Jettas get excellent fuel mileage. On wikipedia for the Jetta A3-A5(1996-2010) they list these engines(seems like a lot of variants), for the transmission I am assuming a manual is always going to beat an automatic for mileage because of efficiency losses, but I...
