    2000 Jetta ALH cranks but no start

    The dribbles from 1,2 and 4 could just be air in the lines. Crank for 20 seconds with all three just cracked, then tighten them up. Give starter a few minutes to cool down. And repeat until you get a good squirt, then tighten up and try starting again.

    2000 Jetta ALH cranks but no start

    I would have soaked the the rings with transmission fluid while it was apart. If they ran dry they could have gotten hot and be stuck in their grooves. Have you tried starting it with a bit of starting fluid? (either sprayed into the intake hose?

    Losing my mind. Possible bad (new turbo)? Someone please tell me i'm missing something

    Remove the intake pipe to the turbo. Does it make boost with it removed? Can you spin the turbo vanes by hand? Do they move effortlessly?

    DgD, that's exactly how a clogged exhaust would perform. Under 'no load' conditions there is enough flow. But under load the 'after turbo' pressure builds due to the restriction. The exhaust not flowing stalls the turbo. If you could measure rpm of the turbo, you would see the rpm's rising...

    The cat could be clogged. And I have heard of the internals of mufflers coming loose and blocking flow. When you 'stuff it' what does it rev up to? Does it rev up quickly? Does it loose rpm if you keep it floored? I guess you'll see tomorrow.

    Some new noises ??

    The engine moves around on it's mounts while starting so I would check all your boost hoses for cracks and also the flex pipe in the exhaust for leaks.

    Still won’t rev after rebuild

    Contaminated fuel (water)? Clogged fuel filter?

    Losing my mind. Possible bad (new turbo)? Someone please tell me i'm missing something

    If you could read boost pressure off of the manifold (drill & tap for a nipple) and you see appropriate pressure there, then I'd say you're not getting the corresponding amount of fuel to make power. Could you have a clogged fuel filter or fuel line or pick up?? Bad fuel? Clogged exhaust?

    Hi Scott, I saw your last posting about the clacking noise you were hearing. The other day I started my car and on top of the normal diesel engine sound there was a distinct 'clacking' noise. It gets loader with load. Even just putting it in 'drive' makes it louder. What did your noise turn out...

    Speedometer going CRAZY!!!

    On my 2000 Jetta ALH Auto... Only when in drive, stopped or at any speed the speedo swings higher than actual speed. Like when doing 40 it'll swing all the way to 100, then 70 then up to 80 etc. etc. Can someone tell me where the sensor is located that supplies this signal? Can I unplug this...

    Larger OEM Oil Cooler from a 3.6 VR6

    Out of curiosity, what do you need to install this onto an ALH? Longer bolt, seal(s), new hoses?
