My starter is quiting on my 90 diesel jetta (non turbo). It turns over slow,
smokes a bit, and drains the battery. I went to the hole in the wall vw shop
for one, and they want to give me a gasser starter. I told them I thought the
diesel starter was more robust, and wasn't sure if the gas starter would cut
it. They only wanted $30 for it, so price is right. Anyone think this will be
an accepteable replacement? I'm pretty sceptacle.
