  1. VW Jetta MKII 1985–1992
    I bought an '85 Jetta, it ran and pulled hard but it jerked when pressing the gas pedal in 1st Gear. I decided to start with a regular under the hood tune up. Come to find out that the air filer was drowned in fuel. My dad said it was a bad fuel pressure regulator. Is he right about it? If so...
  2. VW Jetta MKV 2005.5–2010
    I've decided to trade my truck for a jetta. I'm new to diesels and new to jettas. Would like to stay around the $10,000 range but have to find that at a dealership because of trading my truck. Any suggestions or help. What years should I be looking at? What years did vw make major changes...

  4. Jetta Troubleshooting
    car: mkIV Jetta gls 1.8t 2004.5 The problem started out about a week ago and its been getting a little bit worse over time. It started out where I'd hammer on the gas (I'm an acceleration fiend, go figure) and I'd get midway through my power band and my car would start to dog out a bit until I...

    First off i apologize if this is already a thread, I looked into it and couldn't find the right answer anywhere. When I am filling my gas tank it stops pumping at about 11 gallons. The fuel gauge stops 3 or 4 notches from showing its full. When I am pumping the gas the fuel hose clicks and wont...
  6. 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...

  9. Jetta Troubleshooting
    I have a 2007 Jetta 2.5. The gas gauge read empty last night (which should be accurate, as I haven't filled up in a while), but when I stopped for gas, I was only able to pump two gallons before the pump shut off. I thought it was a problem with the pump so I tried to continue filling up, but...
  10. 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...
  11. Jetta Troubleshooting
    If you believe all the hype, I should be getting about 55 mpg (Imperial gallon) from my 2009 Jetta tdi, yet at 60 miles per hour with a slight tailwind, all I get is 46 mpg. Is anyone else experiencing poor fuel economy in the 2009 clean diesels? Any advice?

    Hey everybody. Gonna be doing my own maintenance from now on. Anyone ever change a fuel filter? If so, where is it located? I know some manufacturers require a special tool also. Thank You.
  13. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    Hey everyone, So I'm new here and I'm having a problem with my '02 Jetta. I got this car a year ago and I usually get about 260 miles from a tank. That city driving and going 20 above the speed limit. But recently I only get 160 miles from my tank. So I pumped up yesterday and went 26 miles and...
  14. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    I have a 2.0L BBW Engine and periodically the check Engine light comes on. When I check the OBDII message (P2177) it is defined as "System too lean off idle bank 1". Has anyone experienced this error message? I suspect that it has something to do with low fuel pressure. I suppose the best thing...
  15. VW Jetta MKV 2005.5–2010
    I have a 2007 Jetta 2.5 Manual. My gas mileage is about 22 to 23. I do a lot of city driving bu I still think that is pretty terrible! I've noticed that when I put in premium, I notice a difference..I get more miles out of a full tank the the 87 the gas cap says I should use. So..I am just...
  16. VW Jetta MKII 1985–1992
    I'm still pretty new to the VW scene, but I got a good deal on a 1990 GLI with a 9A and a 5 speed. It's served me well for a few months but left me on the side of the road. I think it's either an ignition problem or something's wrong with the fuel injection. I haven't taken anything apart...
  17. VW Jetta MKII 1985–1992
    Hello, My fuel pump housing broke and had to replace it. I found a used one but it has a smaller diameter. It seems that there are three sizes of pumps: 46.2, 52 and 60 mm. The car is a Jetta GL 1.8L Jetronic. Will I be able to use the new housing with a smaller pump? The question is...
