My check engine light was on, mechanic checked it and these were the codes.
P0327 knock sensor low circuit low input bank 1 or sensor 1
P0420 catalyst efficiency
I had the catalytic converter replaced and had both knock sensors replaced.
Check engine light came on within 10 miles of both being fixed.
Now codes that pop up are PO 304, and I can't remember the other numbers but when I checked the book it's for cyclinder misfires in 1, 2 & 4. As well as the knock sensor code again.
I have a 2001 vw jetta 1.8 turbo. I read other blogs and it mentioned something about the coil recalls possibly as a problem, which I took care of with the dealer when registering the car last year after purchase from a private owner. Haven't had any problems until now.
I'm a female, if that helps explain that I'm not the most knowledgable when it comes to car problems. I'm just trying to research on my own before walking into a mechanic speaking foreign language to me. Haha
My previous vehicles have all been serviced and maintained by a trustworthy mechanic but he isn't comfortable working on VW's, and recommends I go to a specialist so it's as if I'm starting all over finding someone I can trust.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
