#3867 of 6631 what to do, what to do.
Jul 27, 2005 (9:36 am)
A friend of mine has generously donated a 1995 Jetta 3 to me but it seems it has a few problems. None of the dash works (speedo and tach included) and the auto headlight sensor doesn't work either. I'm working on a very tight budget and I've never owned a Volkswagen so I was hoping for a little advice as far as what it could be. Someone told me it may be the mother board but I can't find anything about it online. Thanks.

Jul 28, 2005 (1:13 pm)
i had the exact same problem with my 2003 jetta. I have been driven a manual car for the past twenty years, and they told me I don't drive me car correctly.
the problem is the car would not move fast when shift in gear when engin is working hard.
is that your problem, they say it is a clutch issue, but is it the clutch issue?
it will cost me $2000 to fix it, what about you?
#3870 of 6631 Headlight Adjustment
Jul 28, 2005 (1:17 pm)
I have a 97 VW Jetta GLS.
I am constantly having ppl flash me their brights at me, thinking that I have my brights on. Which I do not.
We are assuming that the headlights are positioned wrong.
We wanted to adjust them but we cannot figure it out on this Jetta. It doesn't seem to have the same type adjustment features as most other vehicles we have had.
Does anyone know how to adjust the headlight beam position on these cars?

"car wouldn't move fast when shift in gear when engine is working hard"
Does it meant that after you release the clutch and pedal the gas at any gear, the engine RPM is not revolving higher and the car is not accelerating as usual and when did it happens?
#3872 of 6631 2001 Jetta GL Road Vibration Problem
Jul 29, 2005 (6:52 am)
I have a nagging vibration in my Jetta and can't get it to go away! Vibration is coming from the drivers side but I can not isolate whether it is front or back. I have replaced all 4 tires, drivers side front wheel bearing, tie rod, ball joint, axle, strut, rear wheel bearing (drivers) and rear shocks! Any ideas? Possible motor mount, or tranny dog bone?
#3873 of 6631 Air Conditioning Problems...etc on 01 Jetta 1.8t
Jul 30, 2005 (7:04 am)
Where can you find a Chiltons manual? I just bought an 01 jetta 1.8t and have had more problems in the last 3 months then I had with my Mits eclipse in 4 years. My air conditioner has gone out for the SECOND time. First time it was a "fuse". Not blowing any cold air and now the check engine light is on. HELP I think I have made a huge mistake by purchasing this car!!!

#3875 of 6631 Re: Anyone Else having Transmission Problems?? [munschie]
Jul 30, 2005 (8:07 pm)
Hi there munschie!
I have a 99 jetta, the first year model with the new body like your's. I've had that happen to me ever since I bought it. It happens when I put the car in reverse, then put it in drive. If there is a hill, I will roll down a bit, till it shifts gears, then it will go into drive. I've learned to keep my foot on the brake. and then when I hear it shift into drive, I know that I can hit the gas. Otherwise it "jumps" forward. I think that is just the way the car was made. I'm so used to it now, that I forgot all about it. It also helps that there are no hills in florida!

I have a 99 jetta, the new body style. I think I know what you are talking about. It's early morning, you are about to hit 40mph, when the car seems to pause and jerk into the next gear. Then it is fine thereafter. It is so sporadic that you are never able to recreate it. I think this is just the way the car was made. It doesn't appear to affect the car, and I've had it for over 6 years now.
