  5. Throw MAF through a window?

    Facts 2001 Vw Jetta 2.0 completely stock (duh why would you modify a 2.slow, ok I admit that was unnecessary) Runs like crap at an idle with MAF plugged in. Unplug MAF and it runs great. It can't be a bad MAF because this is the 2nd new one and also tried one out of another Jetta that works...

  10. 2001 Jetta VR6 dying when I come to stop

    My 2001 Jetta VR6 is dying when I come to a stop. Not all the time, but every 5 days or so. I try to restart but nothing works, not my hazard lights or anything, and not even a ''click click click'' like when it's a dead battery; eventually it does start up after 5 or more tries. The battery...
