Price should sell broken 2003 TDI

Asked by Jul 13, 2017 at 03:01 PM about the 2003 Volkswagen Jetta GL TDi Wagon

Question type: Car Selling & Trading In

I have a 2003 VW GL TDI that my mom accidently put gas
in when she went to the store down the street from my
house.  She drove it a total of 5 miles and said it's driving
funny. I went to start it to check it out and it wouldnt even
start. Ii smelled the gas tank and could smell Gas! So I
know it's from putting gas not diesal. I don't want to deal
with it as it would need too be drained and new fuel filter
and maybe pump and could possibly have engine damage
so I bought a new car and want to sell this one. The car is a
manual and has 154,000 miles and was running  in perfect
condition before this incident.  What is a fair price I should
ask for it?

1 Answer


A fair price for the vehicle is around $2500, minus the cost to remove the gasoline. You will need to drain the tank, clean/flish the fuel pump and fuel lines and injectors and replace the filter. So $2K? see what someone will give you.
