Feb 03, 2012 (9:36 am)
I have a 1998 jetta. 2.0L 4 door Auto
here is the problem..
will start and idle. every time. but if you give it any gas at all it shudders and stalls. (in any gear)
I have done minor matneince..
spark, spark plugs, fuel, rotor button, ran codes (brings up #1 and #2 banks... and Purge Valve) checked valve and it seems to be fine.
checked for vacuum leaks. change oil, fuel and made sure the fuel pump works..
IM LOST and we all know we can go broke fixing all the little things but never find the big problem.
#6582 of 6655 2002 VW Jetta GLS 2.0 AZG HELP!
Feb 16, 2012 (1:03 am)
Hi, I just recently purchased a 2002 VW Jetta VR6 with the 2.0 AZG motor. To make a long story short I bought it and it shifted perfectly fine and had no lights on..about 5 hours after purchasing the car the CEL came on..I hooked it up and ran the codes and got two back. The first was P0420 and the second I cant recall off the top of my head but it said the ignition coil was bad and had to possibly do with cylinder 3. After the light came on and ever since the car seems to shift funny. At times it will shift smooth and at other times it will have a delayed shift going from 2nd to 3rd gear. Also if you gas it to much when it reaches around 5 to 5500 rpms it seems to possibly slip or have a very delayed shift. There are times also when you put it in drive it will seem to lurch forward but it is very tempermental and only does it at certain times..could these CELís be the cause of this or am I looking at some very expensive transmission problems?? Any and all help is appreciated!!

How is it possible to have the "VR6" and at the same time have a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine???
Which is it?
Has the original VR6 engine been replaced with an AZG motor?
If what you are telling us is true, then the engine is NOT the original for that car and you could have ALL KINDS of problems with it.
Oh - and I am not so sure the VR6 xmission would mate-up to the AZG motor, so the xmisison may not be original either.
I hope you did not pay very much for that frankenWagen.
In any case, once you validate WHICH engine is in that thing, we may be able to assist with your problems. ... You may wish to also validate that the xmission is the correct one for that engine too.

ummm - A 4-cylinder engine has only 1 "bank" of cylinders. Please tell us the specific codes which are failing and we may be able to assist further.

exhaust/cat-conv may be plugged. also did you say O2 sensors/banks? don't trust them , be prepared to swap them if you haven't recently.
to test exhaust/cat, disconnect the exhaust close to exhaust manifold and let her rip.

Did you ever find out what was wrong with your jetta and the epc light? mine is doing the exact same thing and no VW shop can figure it out.

If the AC lines are clogged even a little bit the pressure relief valve will activate and tell the compressor to turn off. I had this problem with my Jetta and its only after the entire system was flushed that the compressor stopped doing that. Auto AC systems in general need to be kept squeaky clean and any debris will make the compressor shut down before more damage occurs.

I also have the same problem from my car, all the coils and plugs have been changed. still showing those codes!! ANY recommendations would be great! I was told by a repair shop (that admitted to knowing nothing about my car) that it needs a new computer, not what I wanted to hear..

It is unfortunate that someone chose to "throw money" at the problem. It is always better to TROUBLESHOOT a problem and then fix the root-cause.
The DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) are simply pointers and hints which help guide you to a problem. Unfortunately, some folks think the DTCs are telling you what needs to be replaced.
For example, a "misfire" DTC is flagged when the O2 sensor is sensing that there is too much unburned fuel in the exhaust system. It does NOT necessarily mean that a cylinder misfires... perhaps the O2 sensor is wrong... or a fuel-injector is squirting too much fuel. Applying simple logic to the issue will lead to the proper solution.
If you would please tell us specifically what DTCs are being flagged on your car (and which engine-code you have) we may be able to help point you in the right direction to a repair. Do not forget that the "mix" of DTCs you are seeing can combine to help lead to the solution.
