There are no gas hater here (well, maybe some)
I love this forum too, it's more informative and stays on topic better than many of the other VW forums. If you have a question specific to your engine or want to talk about "stance" then there might be some other forums that have more experience.

Nope not the right forum as there are none really for the gas versions here. Still lots of info to read on common things like body and other things non engine related.

This one is in a class of its own. I haven't really seen another with such dedicated people with relatively little off topic or spamming.

None of that is in the owner's manual?

no it isn't. tried to look up plug gap and fuel filter, nothing listed in index. i'll just look again in the vortex site, or just drop in at the dealer. i find they're ok with info, as i've been a vw owner for over 35 years and at times i went to them for parts and or service. now my question today is, i'm looking for steel rims for all season tires. what years would fit my 2014, 195/65/15?

I know the wheels from my MK5 Jetta fit my MK6 Jetta, but I don't know about older VW's. Your bolt spacing is 5x112mm if that helps.

For plug gap:

Actually the City cars use the old platform, therefore it's 5x100, so it will not bolt up: https://www.wheel-size.com/size/volk...tta-city/2007/

Wheels from a 2007 Jetta (non City) would work. You need 5x112.

(I bought the wrong rims for my winters when I first got my 2015)

I just did a search on Craigslist for 5x112 in the diameter I needed.

If you're not buying VW rims then you'll want to make sure they are hub centric (most Euros will be I believe, aftermarket may not be)

What engine code do you have, and which platform car is this?

A picture will help.

"Plug gap" is a somewhat (ok REALLY) outdated term. Plugs come set with a gap already, no need to mess with anything, just replace them with the correct one at the specified interval.

Most newer cars have no schedule for gasoline fuel filters, some cars do not even have one. Your car may have a replaceable one, if it does, it will be located under the car just ahead of the RR wheel. But again, the engine code and platform will help here.

So that is why neither of those items is in your manual, doesn't need to be, as they do not intend for anyone to mess with it.

Whoops, Sorry for the misinformation! I just read up on the City Jettas and Golfs, I had no idea VW offered MK4 cars through 2007.
