Your parking brake is not being applied or the cables are tooefed.Recently, when parking on a hill our 2003 Jetta with 80,000 miles will roll back like the engine has low compression. It runs just fine and has plenty of power. Any ideas on what could be causing this problem ?
why is everybody so anal retentive about using the parking brake? I have driven manual trannys for 31 years and have virtually never used the parking brake when parking and have never had a mishap.And a defective parking brake. Because it's either inoperative or the driver is.
Not if the shutoff solenoid is functioning properly. (If it's bypassed or stuck open, however...)jrip said:Let me try this on for size. Mechanical injection pump, no spark plugs required, is it possible for a diesel engine to start running if the engine were to turn over, as in higher gear and steep hill?
