Fuel Sending Unit, runs into the motor block at the FRONT of the motor (tricky one here, had it happen to mine)....It is no more than a flat piece of metal that reacts to air-flow and fuel pressure as needed. However, this part goes bad over a period of time because of excess heat from the block. It is very easy to fix and relatively cheap (14-20 dollars at the most) Good Luck

Even though you replaced the coil, it may be bad. You should test that first. If the coil is okay, it could be that the ignition wires need to be replaced.

Where is the water pump located in a jetta 2002?

I recently had a water pump replaced in my 1999.5 Jetta. The pump is located in the block with the timing belt. It is recommended that the water pump be replaced at the same time as that belt because of where it is. Vw did this so that if the serpentine belt broke, you could still get to safety without warping the engine block because of over heating because the water pump was no longer functioning.

The dealer will typically charge you close to $1000. You could do it yourself however for less than half that amount. I too have a '02 Jetta 2.0 liter and have had it replaced twice now and am getting ready to do it again. This is due to the oil blow by of the bad rings on the engine.
