my buddies auto jetta and manual golf, he was selling the jetta and wanted to keep the auto pump so i did a pump swap in his driveway 25 minutes start to finish including hammer modding the manual pump... totally uneccessary to remove the VC during a swap ... just establish tdc first and have the pump pin handy

Default Dumped Photobucket

As some of you probably know, Photobucket made a decision to require those of us that use them for pictures on forums like TDI Club to pay something like $400/year. And, they did this without any warning to their registered subscribers. Well, I've dumped Photobucket.

After doing some research, I've switched to vgy.me for photo hosting and updated this thread. If vgy.me pulls the same stunt at a later date, then I won't be updating again, as it takes too much precious time.

I had made pdfs on the howtos I've done so all is not lost should any other hosting service demand big money for their services.

Just a note to mention that there are cam indexing tools that don't require pulling the valve cover.

Default Need help!

Hi there I bought a 2001 Jetta tdi auto, with help reading many articles on this club I completed the 5 speed swap, went very smooth! I then had some running issues read some more articles and found my in tank unit was clogged so I replaced it. My problem is my injection pump is getting seriously hot! While using vag com tdi timing my fuel temp goes from an average of 140 to 200 ! Any ideas, has my injection pump over worked itself by previous owner? Thanks

Generally speaking, if the pump is getting hot it is because the thermo-tee on the top of the filter is not opening and allowing the fuel to circulate back to the tank to allow fresh fuel in to the filter and then into the pump head keeping it cool. I will suggest if the fuel pickup was plugged for any length of time damage could have been done to the pump internals; I only know this as I recently went through the same thing. As far as swapping out the injection pump w/o removing the timing belt goes we were in and out in less than 1 hour yesterday, it can be done but you have to know how to prevent the loss of proper timing. We used quite a few clamps, though. If your pump is junk, contact Dutch Auto Parts for the fastest and least expensive way to get a replacement. See post #1 :

I need to remove my injector from my 2000 NB parts car(ie, head already removed). Is there a way I can get it off without buy the counterhold tool? I still want to sell the engine for parts and don't want to destroy anything.

Thanks,
Lance

To remove injectors I use a crow foot wrench.

If you're not putting a timing belt back on then just take the pump off and leave it. No need to worry about crank/cam position if you're scavenging parts. Just don't put the car in gear and roll it around if there's no timing belt on it.


Edit: I just reread you don't have a head on the engine. No risk of damage if there aren't any valves! Just take off whatever you want.

so swapping IPs doesn't need VC removal, do you HAVE to take cam sprocket off or even vacuum pump off? theoretically wouldn't you be able to loosen the tensioner, pull the belt, keep an eye on TDC mark on flywheel and just swap pumps being that you have the pump locked at TDC? or am i missing something crucial?

Have you done a timing belt on an ALH?


Consult the timing belt procedure for further info. http://pics3.tdiclub.com/articles/pdf/a4timingbelt.pdf

Not yet I've been reading into it though. I'm just talking about IP swap though, I mean I realize cam would need to be locked but otherwise I was more or less curious
