Open-Heart surgery! Car was barely running so I cracked open the injection pump, gave it a thorough de-placqueing, sewed her back up and held my breath....started great on the first try and only needed a minor hammer-mod adjustment to get the IQ to exactly 5! Now running like a new car, better than ever! Only PITA was soldering back the 7 leads for the IQ adjuster. Just takes patience. (Our patients?)��

BAH!
Was checking out my wagon on Friday last week. We added some more oil. It fired after a little bit of cranking. The clear fuel line was empty, for some reason. There's no fuel leaking afaik. Good thing I've got the lift pump in there. Ran for a bit and stalled again. Seems like fuel cut. Fired it up again and it ran fine and started to drip oil. We originally thought it was a feed line or a drain line for the turbo, but it turns out it's leaking oil out of the passenger side back corner somewhere between the head and block. It produced a puddle that's about a quart. Definitely had a bigger leak when the rpms went up. Then, when I was about to shut it off(after we noticed the oil under it) it stalled again.

Finished up replacing the steering column on my 4-dr. Had to do it because when I put back the original one during the replacement of my hvac box, a piece of metal fell out that was broken into 2 pieces, nearly exactly in half through the hole. I couldn't really tell where it went, and it was broken, so the likelihood of being able to repair the steering column was really close to zero. Basically the tilt/telescoping lock locked no longer. Hard to drive with that problem.

So I was able to get one from a 2005 GTI and finished that replacement yesterday. I like the new to me leather steering wheel because mine is degrading like most of them from 20 years ago.

Since the column was from the other maker than the original, I wondered what kind of problems there would be. (VW cautions you to get the same maker's column when replacing.) But it all works just the same. The replacement had a different location for the ground wire, but mine still bolted into the same hole that is in the key cylinder.

The only hiccup is that neither key tumbler would come out of the ignition casting. So I had to drill out the security retaining bolts from both so I could install the original ignition casting into the replacement. I decided that it was not a worrisome place - if a thief has access to that part of the steering column, a couple of security bolts aren't going to do anything to slow down a person who probably would just as soon use a BFH to solve the issues rather than carefully disassembling a couple of bolts. So I just went to a local hardware store and bought a couple of M8x1.25x20mm bolts to do the trick.

Yay! Almost ready to drive. I still have a couple of things to do up front while it is not being driven anyway, but the hard parts are done and I'm almost ready to go.

PS: took it for a short drive to get some blue locktite. I found I am 1 tooth off on the steering column, so I have to r&r the steering wheel so I won't go crazy with it being off just a bit. I was going to have to do it anyway because I didn't locktite the 2 screws that hold the ignition switch in place. So now there's 2 reasons to pull it apart. Oh, well. It shouldn't be that hard.

PPS: Hitman, you have an eye for nice Jettas with nice wheels. And thank you for the kind comment, Bob!

Cheers, PH
