Engine

Significant Problems Occasional problems on this vehicle are failures of the Engine, Timing Belt, Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor (4 cylinder engines only), the Ignition Power Stage (1.8L engine only), and the Water Pump. Problems with the Engine are caused when the engine oil gels. When proper maintenance schedules for oil changes are followed, oil gelling should not occur. The cost to repair the Engine is estimated at $5,899.00 for parts and $858.00 for labor. The cost to replace the Timing Belt is estimated at $62.00 for parts and $195.00 for labor. The cost to replace the MAF Sensor is estimated at $380.00 for parts and $58.50 for labor. Volkswagen has issued a warranty extension due to the high number of MAF Sensor failures. MAF Sensors are now warranted for 7 years, 70,000 miles on 1999 through 2001 models. The cost to replace the Ignition Power Stage is estimated at $125.00 for parts and $52.00 for labor. The cost to replace the Water Pump is estimated at $133.15 for the parts and $234.00 for labor on the 1.8L engine, and $151.35 for parts and $338.00 for labor on the 2.8L engine. All prices are estimates based on $65.00 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
