Glow Plugs Is it easy to change the glow plugs in my 2002 jetta tdi. If so, how do I do it and where are the glow plugs located.


As stated by andersands, you are better off taking it to a garage for them to fix and letting them be responsible. I had the VERY SAME problem. Mine broke in the cylinder head and I was lucky enough to be able to do the work with my father-in-law AND ... 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

My 2003 vw jetta tdi was running rough like a glow plug went out. I tested the glow plugs with a digital multimeter, one of the tested bad and replaced it and the problem is worse now. Could it be the glow plug harness has gone bad?


If the engine is running, it is not the glow plugs as they are only used for cold starting and initial running and are switched off as soon as you move the vehicle or after 90 seconds, whichever comes first. You may have an injector issue or a turbo ... 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Can anyone tell me where the B1S1 oxygen sensor in a 2004 Audi A6 3.0 Quattro is located and how difficult it will be for a DIY job? This is the pre-cat sensor on the passenger side. My CEL came on and showed the code for this O2 sensor as well as 2 cylider misfires. I just replaced all the ignition coils and spark plugs thinking this was the problem as the CEL was blinking before. Now CEL is on steady, but same codes. Chris


B1S1 = Bank 1 Sensor1. The Bank 1 is the right side bank of the cylinder block, (passenger side for LHD - Left Hand Drive vehicles). The Sensor 1 is the upstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2S). See pictures below. \015\012B1S1 is located ... Audi A6

You may have gotten the wrong part, the new one should have the same plug, it may be fatter, and have slightly longer wire, but it needs to be plug and play, universal ones that you splice in, generally have issues quickly. ... 1988 Ford Ranger

Is that really necessary if i have a plug in 02 sensor as a replacement?? Thanks -Dan

There should be an O2 sensor before and after the catalytic converter on your vehicle, so it will have 2 sensors. You'll need a 7/8" open end wrench or an O2 sensor socket to replace them.It'll look something like this: http://www.carstee ... 2003 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

I have a 1999 oldsmobile intrigue that is misting a lot. It idels rough, and runs rough. I can still take off it is a little slow, but I can still go pretty fast, but it still mist at the high speeds pretty badly. I have checked the mass air flow sensor, the oxygen sensor, I have replaced all spark plug and spark plug wires, and still nothing. The computer at Autozone said there were three codes on it, Misfire in 4, Oxygen Flow Sensor, and Mass Air Flow Sensor. After we changed spark plug a

I have a 2002 VW TDI with 140,000 miles, but engine was rebuilt after broken timing belt, and trans was replaced under warranty at 98,000 miles. My problem is that the engine cranks eight or nine times when starting next morning, even though car is parked in indoor and heated garage. All services have been performed right on time and I use nothing but MOBIL 0-40 OIL and high quality oil filters, etc, etc. It has a new timing belt (the newer type which came out in 2003) Glow plugs are all okay a

My 1998 VW Jetta TDI (230,000 miles) recently developed cold starting problems. I replaced the glow plugs with no change in starting performance. The problem seemed to start when an oil change tech put 5w30 oil in last winter (which the operator manual says is ok in cold weather).I changed oil after 3500 miles and went back to Rotella diesel oil at my mehanic's suggestion. Could the thin oil have caused wear on the engine, or could something else be the problem? The car runs fine after it starts


Sluggish/cold start "problems"with any VW group product can be put down,in a lot of cases,to dirty injector nozzles,use redexe/wynns injector cleaner at 1 can to 1/2 tank fuel and you will feel a difference.as for the oil,VW group,use 10/40 semi synt ... 1998 Volkswagen Jetta

2003 VW Jetta TDI - 75000 Interior light does not activate when entering or exiting the car. Had to jump start the other day as not enuf power to turn over engine - glow plug indicator working ok - am having VW install new battery (replacing original battery) VW charging $165 which seems fair - they are telling me I need a new "door actuary (sp?) lock" and want $425. They say without it battery may be compromised. Is this true? What is this actuary lock? Is $425 a reasonable price? KSL Prince

2003 Jetta TDI. Engine light is turned on after 1 min of driving. Outside of the car(obviously near the hood) smells unusually strong after driving. Got my glow plugs replaced this past winter and still have about 4000 km before next oil change. I'm manly concerned about the smell as it smells like burnt oil, however oil level are normal.

2000 TDI - Lots of white smoke at cold start. Engine misses badly at midrange and at cruising conditions. Good power when peddle is mashed and seems to run smooth then. White smoke mostly goes away at idle after the car reaches 190F. Replaced: turbo, injector pump, injectors, glow plugs, rings, egr, MAF sensor, cleaned intake and EGR cooler, timed properly, head was pressure tested. The white smoke is almost certainly unburnt diesel as it smells like it and burns the eyes - and it's ALOT of smok
