Asked by Dec 05, 2015 at 09:41 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T

Question type: General

Numerous problems it could be. The code means a lean condition that the computer cannot compensate for. Things like a leaking intake manifold to an O2 sensor. I would have someone qualified to look at it.
