  1. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    I've had my MKIV for almost 10 years now, and as of last year she started showing transmission problems - mostly rough shifts. Took it to the dealer, but ultimately a transmission shop and got her back in working order. Just recently started having problems again. Before I go back in to have her...

    I have a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta that I bought pre-owned. Unfortunately, I've been having a problem starting it up these past few months. It started in maybe October or November. I came home and got out of my car and went to lock it and it wouldn't lock or beep. I checked to make sure all of the...

    Hello everyone, I just bought a 2001 vr6 manual 5 speed. For about the first month it's run perfectly, but just last week, any time I shift into 3rd, the entire car shuts off for a split second and then comes back on. It will lose all power, radio, dashboard, even the power steering goes, which...

    I have a 1998 Jetta GLS 2.0L, and a couple days ago the cooling fans stopped working. I have heat, and the car stays at normal temperatures if it is moving, and I have been keeping the heat on while I drive to help further. It only starts to heat up past normal when it sits with the engine...

    Hey everyone, I've got a 2002 2.0L that just started giving me some problems. I started driving up a steep hill and the engine started sputtering and the accelerator was fairly unresponsive. After I pulled over and checked the engine I noticed it had a pretty bad smell to it. I hadn't drove far...

    Hi all, I just recently installed Helix LED tail lights into my 2007 Jetta and noticed at night that one light lit up yellow and not red on the outer ring. After further testing I determined : Only with right side; Brakes cause it to light up red/normal Signals cause it to light up red/normal...

    So on my '01 jetta everything works fine except that the speedo is kind of bad. For one thing it always reads 7mph fast even when the car is off, and it gets jumpy if you go above 35. Does anyone know if there is an easy fix or how much it would cost to fix a problem like this?

    I got my fmic in and there isn't a hole for the o2 sensor bracket to go on. I'm kind of assuming that there needs to be a hole right? How else would it get a reading. Anyone else have this problem and if so did you just hand drill it? I'm not sure how accurate it needs to be so I'm not going to...

    My Jetta's front bumper is hanging down off its side screws like this. When I talked to the repair guy, he said the fix would cost $400. It looks like the bumper needs a few screws and it would be fine. What a ripoff. Does anyone have an easy fix for this? Is your Jetta like that? Another thing...

    Ok guys you solved my problems before on an over heating issue. Now that fixed but car runs great till it warms up the longer it runs the worse it gets till it just dies and you have to wait 30 min to an hour before it will restart. Seems like it stops getting fuel like fuel pump shuts down...

    Alright so about a year ago my windows stopped going down after the car had been sitting for a few months. I know the motors are still good because i can hold the key in the lock/unlock position to make them go up and down. I have taken the rubber boot off that runs from the door to the rest of...
  14. VW Jetta / Bora MKIV 1998 Euro,1999.5 US -2005
    Ok, so I'm not too sure if this is normal for jetted or not but I recently installed a boost gauge from ecs tuning 0-35 psi no vacuum. The gauge reads 0 psi all the time unless I stomp on the gas then shoots straight to 16psi. Sometimes if I goose the throttle it will go p but then snap back...

    Last night, I thought it would be fun to go drifting, or powersliding, in my VR6 on the mountain pass dirt roads. And I over-turned one of the corners and went into a big pile of dirt. My car was on the rear right wheel the whole time. My entire front end of the car looks fine, other than having...

    I just bought a 2003 Jetta GLI w/ a 2.8L VR6. I noticed that all the interior lights seem to flicker and sometimes cutout for a half a second. Any ideas why? I'm wondering if its the dimmer switch or a solenoid somewhere. I have not dug into the problem yet, i kind of want to get an idea on...
