Valve Cover Complete Removal and Gasket Replacement. 2.0T FSI engine VW
Valve cover removal 2.0T FSI engine with gasket replacement. These will be
the same basic steps for all FSI 2.0T engines only from VW. Do you have
leaking spark plug tube seals or oil leaking out of the valve cover in the
rear or so? Then you will most likely need to do this. It's not hard, but
you want to take your time and do it right. Also make sure if you have the
stock PCV, it's not broke because that can cause oil to leak also from high
pressure buildup in the head.
IMPORTANT TORQUE SPECS. PLEASE SEE.
88 in lbs for valve cover bolts (DIAGRAM IN VIDEO OF TIGHTENING ORDER. MUST
30 in lbs for PCV plate (VERY IMPORTANT, DO NOT DO MORE, YOU WILL STRIP THE
PLASTIC VALVE COVER AND WILL NEED A NEW ONE)
Crankshaft position sensor vw jetta 2.0
This is the location for a vw jetta's crankshaft position sensor. Behind
the oil filter and to the right. The cable runs under the filter. *** The
Update on this project is that I got switch out the sensor for a new one
that I bought on Ebay for about 15 dollars. I didn't do it by myself
though. I didn't feel comfortable going under there with just my jack by
myself (plus my son was playing around the car. We used a 10mm socket to
get it out with a neck extender. One month later and it still runs nice.
2009 VW Jetta TDI - Fuel Filter Change
Fuel Filter Replacement in a nutshell:
1) Replace every 20K miles (I do mine every 10K with oil change).
2) Have the right filter for your housing.
3) Engine OFF! Remove Upper Sound Absorber Panel.
4) Water Separator Service (1 Screw Plug, 1 Washer Seal)
a. Remove Screw Plug and old Washer Seal with Torx T30 bit.
b. Siphon water at bottom of Filter Housing from top of housing - A.K.A
c. Siphon enough fuel to avoid spillage when Housing is opened.
d. Reinstall Screw Plug with New Washer Seal. Torque 3 Nm (27 in-lb).
5) Fuel Filter Replacement (1 Filter, 2 Seals on Filter, 2 Seals in
a. Remove 5 Torx T30 Bolts and lift off Upper Filter Housing with lines
b. If you see any amount of metal particles TAKE THE CAR TO A
PROFESSIONAL! You have a major issue.
c. Pull out old Filter and Seals in Housing.
d. Clean as necessary Lower Filter Housing by Siphoning out remaining
NOTE: Removal of Lower Filter Housing is not a requirement. So long
as you remove any contaminants found at the bottom of the canister by other
e. Install New Filter and New Seals.
f. FILL CANISTER WITH CLEAN FUEL to help purge air. (approx. 650 ml or
22 oz) ---OR--- Use VAG-COM to operate fuel pump from fuel tank to prime
the fuel system (the air will be sent back to the tank to vent) SEE VAG-COM
STEP BELOW (7).
g. Reinstall Upper Filter Housing and secure with 5 Bolts. Torque 5 Nm
6) Reinstall Upper Sound Absorber Panel.
7) If you have VCDS/VAG-COM, operate fuel pumps to purge air from Filter
8) Otherwise, Start Engine & try to run it at 2K RPM for at least 30
seconds. If Engine shuts down, restart engine (this method is not
preferred. it is bad for your High Pressure Fuel Pump).
NOTE: Turning key to turn on Accessories does not turn on the fuel pumps,
from what I have read, only when the key is turned to Ignition (Engine
A visual aid to what to expect when replacing the Fuel Filter on the 2009
VW Jetta TDI (A5 - CBEA ).
I used as a reference the Bentley Publishers VW Jetta Service Manual
(2005-2010) as well as a couple of very good write-ups which can be found
at the following links. Many thanks to those who took the time to document
and share the information at these links.
I obtained the Mann Fuel Filter from IDPARTS.COM (formerly TDIPARTS.COM),
UPS Ground Shipping was free with them. Amazon.com also offers the same
Mann Fuel Filter for those who are exclusive to Amazon.
Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2000 Volkswagen Jetta - etrailer.com
Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer
installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 118175 on a
2000 Volkswagen Jetta. OK, we are in the trunk now, and we are going to go
ahead and locate the wires that we are going to be tapping into for the
wiring harness. I went ahead and removed the bottom carpeting pieces to
give me a little bit more room to work. Over here on the drivers side, you
can see if I remove this little lid for this compartment here and pull back
this piece here, that will give us access to the wires here on the drivers
side. We can access 4 of the 5 wires right over here. We are going to need
to run a lead over to the passengers side tail light assembly to make our
connection there. We need to go ahead and figure out which wire goes with
which function we are looking for. It appears to be the green wire with the
yellow stripe is the left-turn signal. Next, I am going to test for the
running-light function, and that wire appears to be the green one with the
white stripe. Next, we are going to go ahead and test for the brakes. OK,
and that appears to be just the solid green wire.
With those three functions found, we can go ahead and start connecting our
converter. As you can see, all of the functions we just tested for are
right on the one side of the harness. We have a white wire with a ring
terminal on it this is going to be our ground wire. So we are going to need
to find a substantial piece of metal here to ground that too. I think I am
actually going to go ahead and take apart this rear threshold piece and
maybe pull back this carpeting a little bit to see if I can find a decent
grounding point. And by removing this it will also give us a route to run
the wire over to the passengers side. And you can see with the threshold
removed and the carpeting pulled back, we can go ahead and mount our ground
screw somewhere in this area here. So I am going to go ahead and make my
connections here on the drivers side. We are just going to take some basic
quick connect here. And what we want to do is just put that over the
existing wire that we are going to be connecting to, and then we can slide
the wire from our harness that we are going to be adding to it. And then
just going to get a basic pair of pliers and just crimp those down.
And again, on the harness here the yellow is going to be our left-turn
function the red is our brake light the brown is our running-light feed and
again, the white is a ground. And then I am just going to take a
self-tapping screw and go ahead and drill into the metal here to provide my
ground. OK, and then the only connection we have left to make here is the
right-turn function, which is the green wire. As you can see, when I
removed the threshold piece here, you can see the bundle of wires here that
are coming across. These are actually the wires that are feeding the
right-side tail-light assembly. So we can actually find the right-turn
signal in here. And it looks like it is the black wire with the green
stripe on it that we are going to be connecting to.
And lastly we want to go ahead and secure our converter box. To do that,
you can see here on the back side of it we have got some double-sided tape.
We just want to find a good mounting area for it. And I think I am probably
just going to mount it right here. And this will allow us to get our
carpeting and everything back together without any interference. OK, with
all of the connections made, we just want to go ahead and tape up all of
our connectors and put our vehicle back together, and then the installation
will be complete. And this will conclude the installation of wiring harness
part number 118175 on a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta.
Jetta ABA 2.0 Idle Issues - 1 - GIAC Chip Startup.MOV
Had previously installed BFI Stage 2 Chip, car ran great for a few days,
then idle problems started
98 jetta 2.0 aba, CAI, header, Exhaust, head milled .040, 270 cam installed @
-4deg, bfi chip, SAI deleted via VAG, 3.5bar FPR, light flywheel, act
This 2000 Jetta 2.0 GL 1984CC 4L had a horrible rough idle, and broke down.
Found that the coil pack was fried, timing was off, and there was a valve
that had a hole burned through it! Had that all replaced, plus the clutch
replaced, mass airflow sensor, water pump, and minor unrelated other
maintenance. Still showing random misfire, and no activity from front O2
sensor. After I replace the O2 sensor all should be OK? It runs FINE when
it starts cold and the secondary air pump is on for about a minute, I'm
thinking that it bypasses the o2 sensor on cold start?

2001 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8t AWW rough idle
So this is a video of my car on a cold start. The RPMS just start to drop
and the engine starts to die out. I revved a few times in the video to keep
it from dying. In this video I installed a new MAF sensor and it didn't
help my issue. What could it be?
