High pressure fuel system issues
Unfortunately this is a common issue on Jetta’s and other models with direct injection. Although this system can go bad at anytime, using the right oil and regular oil changes will prevent any unnecessary repairs.
The timing system is composed of a lot of moving parts. It is very likely your Volkswagen will experience these kind of issues at some point. The symptoms can range from the following: check engine light, underpowered driving, misfires, and rattling noises from the engine.
PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation)
The positive crankcase ventilation is a system located in the crankcase and removes harmful vapors from the engine. This issue arises when there are clogs, damaged components, oil sludge, and poor maintenance. This will cause the check engine light to come on and may cause drivability issues.
