$620 MK3 Jetta: How Bad Could It Be?

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 10 months ago

I bought a MK3 Jetta TDI from a Junkyard for $620, and I tried to get it running. If I can get this running and street-legal, I do plan on building a full blown rally car out of this jetta so please comment any ideas or advice you may have for me as this is my first project car!

While this guy is literally fixing cars and modding them and stuff I’m stuck with a broken SLA 3D Printer...which is fine.

Great video as always!

Neat! My father had a Mk4 1.9 TDI Golf with over 500, 000 Km on it. The 2nd transmission ended up going out on it though.

These cars also have problems with there alarms. And cause it to not turn on even with a good battery, starter, ignition switch. You have to get under the dash find the alarm box that has a 6 and 10 prong connection. You disconnect both of them and wire in on the 6 prong wire 5-6 together and it bypasses the alarm and allows you to turn on the car

I know this is an old video, but i have a very specific question because it's been tormenting me for months now. I rebuilt my mk3 Jetta engine and I have a stray connector that I have no idea where it goes (but I know it goes somewhere...just can't remember where). If you still have the car, can you please go the oil pressure switch and right where that splits off the main harness there's another wire that splits right by it of similar length(except it ends with a hard plastic connector instead of a rubber boot)...and please tell me where it's connected to. It's been a nightmare to try and find where it goes.

Ive had a lot of cars in my teens and twenties. TT, A4, S4, A4, A4, MINI's, S5, RAM's, an eclipse, rsx type s, wrangler, and built several motorcycles.
My advice as someone who loves to find a good deal and a project, sell that vw, and find something newer, safer, with a blown motor and make it electric
