Asked by Jun 19, 2017 at 02:22 AM about the 1998 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6

Question type: Car Customization

Hey guys, I have a 1995 VW cabrio with a 98 Jetta engine
manual and recently I have not been able to drive my car
because it has been "limping". Meaning when I drive I
have to floor it just for it to go and while I am driving it, it
limps. Before the limping my car had a problem starting,
which sometimes I had to do pump the clutch for it to
start. Sometimes I had to hit the starter in the right place. I
went to test my starter and it was in perfect condition.
New battery as of 2 months ago. Now my battery is pretty
much almost may as be dead. Radio doesn't go on and
car does not start. The lights on my dashboard work, my
headlights work fine. And my windows want to go up but
just can't. And when I use the buttons to put up my
window my car makes a noise coming from the engine a
sound like if it is pulling power. Don't know what's going
on, thought I tried to get some answers or predictions
from here before spending money on a consult. Thank you
for your time!
