FIRST OFF id like to make sure that my car is what i suspect as its a new term to me. that my 2000 VR6 GLX (has ALL options heated seats power everything so on) that its a mk4? second there is a myriad of problems that need attn i just need to know which is most important & where i start. fortunately there IS a machanic close that ONLY works on VW. usually if my BF cant fix it we have a guy but he refuses to work on dubs......his loss. i wanted kind of a beater so i could soup it up. i think i was lucky to find one for only $3,500.!!!!
ok heres whats wrong.ty in advance for your help.
Check engine light always comes on sometimes flashes (im told its a misfire)
at 1500 rpms the oil light comes on screen says "STOP" "SHUT OFF MOTOR" "OWNERS MANUAL" & "EMMISIONS something"
sometimes i will b driving (seems to happen after dark) & the car SHUTS OFF. wont start. i have to adjust the wpart that has the end of the spark plug wires over the battery like theres a short and then it starts no prob.
the car doesnt over heat. no surging while shifting. belt does make noise and may be slipping. oil pressure switch oil filter & coil pack changed and oil level is monitored b/c i KNOW Jettas or Dubs are very pick w/ oil lvl. this is my #rd Jetta and 2nd vr6 i REALLY want this one 2 last me for a long time i del pizza (not a lot of $$$) so i need her to be in good cond. the better she runs the faster i drive the more $$$ i make. thank you all.
