2.0 Ignition Coil DIY

Here's a little write up on the replacement of the ignition coil on a 2.0 AEG engine....

Tools:
Flat head
10mm socket
Allen heads




1. Locate the secondary air injection pump should be on the front of the engine



2. set that out of your way and youll have to take off the bracket holding the air pump because the top bolt for the ignition coil is directly under it



replace with the new ignition coil and do the steps in reverse
These wires are labeled A,B,C,D so just follow the sequnce A= #1 B= #2 ect.

you should label the wire posts so people know which post is for what plug.

The pump draws air from the air filter box, and pumps it into the exhaust close to the exhaust valves, to burn any unburnt gas in the exhaust during a cold start. it also helps the cats warm up faster.

I don't have the secondary air injector pump on my 2000 jetta aeg engine either. I'm going to look in the book. I still have the stock air box.

I depends on the emissions classification of the car.

Cars with California emissions have the pump, while cars that meet Fderal emissions are not required to have the pump.

Look on the emissions sticker under the hood. It will tell you if the cars is Federal or California.

These are the states that require california emissions on new cars.
Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

No

It only runs for about 1 minute on a cold start to force fresh air into the exhaust to speed the warmup of the catalytic converter.

Remove it, and the CEL will come on after a few days.

Just leave it alone.
