Volkswagen Rabbit, Jetta Repair Manual (Diesel Engines): 1977-1984 This
Volkswagen Rabbit and Jetta service manual covers 1977 through 1984
models with diesel engines, including those built on the "A1" platform.
This manual includes both the American-made and German-made Rabbits, VW
Jettas, and VW Pickup Trucks with diesel engines built for sale in the
United States and Canada. This repair manual includes troubleshooting,
service and repair procedures for the diesel engine and its
direct-cylinder fuel injection system and is just as thorough as our
other two Volkswagen Rabbit/Jetta/Scirocco/Pickup Truck service manuals.
However, this book focuses exclusively on diesel models. We eliminated
information covering the gasoline engine, fuel-injection, and other
subjects that don't apply to diesel engine models. Removing this
potentially confusing material allows us to cover particular features of
the diesel models in greater depth. You'll find testing, troubleshooting
and repair steps from diesel fuel injection adjustment to the oil cooler
used on models with automatic transmission and/or Turbo-Diesel engines.
Service to Volkswagen owners is of top priority to the Volkswagen
organization and has always included the continuing development and
introduction of new and expanded services. This manual has been prepared
with the Volkswagen owner in mind. The aim throughout has been
simplicity, clarity and completeness, with practical explanations,
step-by-step procedures and accurate specifications. Engines covered:
1.6L Diesel (engine code: CK, CR, JK) 1.6L Turbo-Diesel (engine code:
CY) Features: Fundamental automotive concepts, with simple explanations
of basic troubleshooting, effective workshop practices and tools.
Complete tune-up specifications for all models covered - including those
with turbo-diesel engines, plus troubleshooting and repair of the diesel
fuel injection system. Valve adjustment for the overhead camshaft

the do-it-yourself Volkswagen owner will find this manual indispensable
as a source of detailed maintenance and repair information, the
Volkswagen owner who has no intention of working on his or her car will
find that reading and owning this manual will make it possible to
discuss repairs more intelligently with a professional technician.
