HELLO ALL!!! MJ, 34 yr old girl in Emerson Ga. forgive me if im not doing ths right. im in a panic over this.
very glad to have found this forum and have already learned a good bit. decided to join b/c of it. im a huge fan of the vr6. i've been t-boned in my first and walked away. a few yrs later (missed it every day since) i was in the possition to get a new car. i got a 96 jetta. sadly 7 wks later someone pulled out in front of me & i t-boned him. on;y damage to the car (aside from airbag deployment) was a busted head light. well, and a broken elbow (i drive for a living) i insisted on another Jetta and REALLY wanted a vr6 b/c theyre quick. so here i am....... got a 00 vr6 glx. for only $3,500! BUUUUUUT of course a few days after buyng it a TON of problems have come up. i NEED advice as to which are more serious and need immediate attn b4 the remods come. check engine light is on- check engine light flashes (which i guess is misfire?) the oil pressure light comes on stays on (no loss of power or over heating) at 1500 rpm (btw is a 5 spd) says to shut the motor off and refere to my manual. big letters saying "STOP" kinda scary. the belt slipping- and heres the worst thing it just SHUTS OFF driving down the rd. it needs to have rewiring work done b/c it rolls up windows & locks at random times. has a battery thats waaay to small for it. so far the coil pack has been changed the oil switch replaced and filters. I LOVE THIS CAR AND REALLY THINK I GOT A DECENT DEAL BUT W/ DRIVING FOR A LIVING IT NEEDS TO BE PEAK. PLEEEAASE HELP ME!!! thank you in advance.
