Default Welcome to my Nightmare, BBW help PLZ!

First off, wanted to thank all who look here and try to help...

been to 3 dealershits, and no help what so ever, my car is a 2004 Jetta GL with a BBW motor.

Fuel system has some bugs, i probably need a new fuel pump, or relay, some times the car starts and sometimes it just turns over and over... i cant get to the fuel filter due to its in the tank, (bbw strikes again) so i need to pull the tank to even see which of the 4 pumps could go in there..

first wanted to ask, it seems like every vw audi car has the fuel pump relay of 409, which in my car, it has a 466, which 3 dealershits could not even pull it up in their system..

second, does anybody know what fuel pump goes in the BBW motor?

third, my tranny ever since i bought the car 80K miles ago, the tranny does not go into gear very well, it seems like the fluid is not building enough pressure when cold, and takes 3-5 seconds to go into gear after shifting... would that mean theres air in the system or the wrong fluid?? also is there a filter in the tranny??? thanks for helping...

any other suggestions or comments would kick ass. thanks

basically causing no pressure or weak pressure on your clutch and potentially the shifting problem.... only thought i could give.

As far as the fuel pump, I would need a VIN to determine which fuel tank option you have. You can check the option code sticker and see if it has 2LB, 2LC, 2LE or 2LF. Three different possibilities, but we can figure it out by VIN. As far as the relay, is there a VW part number on the relay itself? Usually there is. I show the relay should be a 409 as well, but stranger things have happened. Finally, the trans. Yes, there are several specific fluids depending on transmission. If you have had it for 80K and never changed the fluid, I would highly recommend it. There is a filter that you should probably replace as well. Although the fluid is pretty expensive, I would try changing it and the filter before you go much further. Let me know if I can help. With your VIN, I should be able to determine the correct part numbers.

Good luck,

well i got the fuel pump after pulling the old one out, took it to vw, and thank god the only fuel pump they had in stock was that one... so got it for $322 out the door, it was def the fuel pump bad,

also the 466 relay is for a 2004.5 model BBW which is SUPER rare, and only works on this car, the 409 works but theres a switch on the filter inside the tank that has a 3 hose system and when triggered for too much flow, stops the fuel pump, and that relay is the only one that works with that system... <--- try to make sense of that...

about the tranny, ive never had the tranny serviced, my wife may have, but not I... its ALways slipped, whats the cost for the tranny service??? and can i do it myself??? how much is the parts if i get them from you craig.. thanks..

I definitely recommend a Bentley manual before attempting a trans service. Do you have a 4-speed or 5-speed automatic? Parts and pricing are different.
