Having problems with your 1998 Volkswagen Jetta ?
I have a 98 jetta 2.0 k2, recently replaced dist. And ignition wires after car would not fire after running fine previous day. Serviced car and very next day same problem occured only to learn that it may now be the cam/crank sensor. Car has 209000 miles and motor runs fine when starts. 1) was it worth replacing dist. And wires? 2) is this something commonly overlooked by mechanics? 3) is there difference between cam/crank sensor? 4) is this a job that can be done by average do-it-yourself perso
If you just changed the dist and wires the timing may be off or the wires may be in the wrong position. You shouldn't have to replace them again. The cam position sensor and the crank position sensor are different and you should be able to change them yourself. You can go to your local Auto Zone and they can print you step by step instructions (USUALLY) or at least show you where the sensors are located.
