    Melted coolant glow plugs

    I know this thread is almost 5 years old but I wanted to revive it because I just noticed the exact same issue on my 2003 Jetta and I haven't found other posts mentioning this issue. One of the wires appears to have completely burnt itself off the connector. No CEL and the car has always...

    oil drain leaking slowly (new pan)

    2003 jetta tdi 5spd. My mother's car- she hit a bad bump that broke the pan. Fortunately she shut the car down when the oil light came on and had it towed to MrChill's. He replaced the oil pan with a new aftermarket unit but (what appears to be) the oil drain plug has a constant small drip...

    help diagnose massive oil leak started from turbo (not hose) with pics 1998 a3

    Thanks bob. I'll focus on that as soon as I can get back to the car tomorrow evening. Conditions are going to be unfavorable, being that it's cold now, I have limited time available, little daylight will be working on a 340k mile diesel so it's a bit grimy. Not that I'm afraid of getting...

    help diagnose massive oil leak started from turbo (not hose) with pics 1998 a3

    On the highway yesterday I smelled burning oil but attributed it to another vehicle. When I got home my back bumper had an oily film on it. This morning the low oil pressure warning went on so I immediately shut down, pulled over and topped off. When I got home I noticed the turbo is leaking...

    AC stops working after 20-30 minutes- chase a leak or a clog?

    it was a used compressor that seemed a little dry so I put the oil in it. On your suggestion I just checked the evaporator drain and it is clear. I'll probably open it up, swap the drier, expansion valve and put real VW brand orings on the compressor (the "universal" metric oring kit didn't have...

    AC stops working after 20-30 minutes- chase a leak or a clog?

    i recently got a 1998 jetta tdi with 330k without working AC. I was suspicious of the high mile compressor so i swapped it with new orings, did a quick evacuation and recharged so I was getting 320psi high 38psi low and was happy with the performance. 5 days later it first stopped cooling, but...
