    Ac compressor fast cycling

    No I was using a high / low manifold gauge set from amazon. I used it to when I replaced compressor and dryer on my Jetta and it works great. So I’m inclined to think they work good enough. And with the short period of time that the compressor is running they hardly read different pressures from...

    Ac compressor fast cycling

    BobnOH, thanks for the link I will check it out. KLXD, PakProtector, so I attempted to add r134a today and it did the fast cycle trying to pull more into the system. After it gave up, I shut the car down, fired it back up and the compressor wouldn’t come on at all. Maybe it’s over full? I...

Well a very subtle difference I noticed was the blinker stalk, the cruise function in particular. The 02 had a rocker switch for accel and...

    01 Jetta mass airflow

    New guy here. I have a Jetta that I recently acquired. It will run with the mass airflow sensor unplugged. It will drive. But limp mode is triggered and it will barely run 60. If plugged in it will idle fine. But as soon as it’s shifted into gear (automatic) it runs for a second or 2 then dies...
