Default Intake Cleaning in Shakopee

Late notice.

Hope to do an intake cleaning on 2000 Beetle this weekend. This will be my first effort, so I'll be going slow and probably get easily distracted mid-process. Also, not entirely certain that I have exactly the parts, tools, misc. that I'll need, so may end up going on cruises mid-process.

Not sure if there'd be much interest, but if anyone wants to stop by and heckle, advise, observe, etc., I'm happy to have the company, especially if someone would be willing to use my digital camera to take pics for my 'scrapbook'.

I could probably open up a second garage slot, if someone wants to do some work while here, and I'm happy to offer my well-honed heckling services as a bonus.

I kind of putter through things, and have other projects vying for time, so don't have a specific timline, but that could change based on feedback.

If interested, please PM me, and I'll supply location and phone # info.

Cheers!
Tom/Farmboy

Default No boost, then ok when start again.

Hey everybody, I seem to have a problem with my 02 Jetta. First thing, engine light is on sometimes, other times not. Then sometimes it's like there is no boost when accelerating, then if I shut it of and restart it, it's fine. The intake probably needs to be cleaned, but has anyone had this problem before? Any suggestions, other than getting the code read?? Thanks for any help!!

Looking for someone who might be able to help me with the airbag light. Ron, I left a couple messages on your voicemail on the subject.

Default Dealer Help

I have a rust spot on my pass side front fender lip (02 A4 w/ 78k). I took it to Eich up in St. Cloud and the guy told me it probably won't be covered under warranty...he speculated that it was hit by a shopping cart and the paint chipped off. I was also informed that a rep travels around the midwest who has to make the call on these warranty claims and is only around every 3-4 weeks. I took some pics and would post them...if I knew how.

My questions: 1) Has anyone else had problems with this?
2) Does anybody know a service person at a TC dealership that won't try and screw me over?

Thanks for the info.

Nick

Met Mileage Champ vikingrob at the Eagan Kwiktrip tonight.

I was envious when you calculated that tank.

I'm gunning for Vrob, 616 on this tank with a quarter left.
No correction factor yet.
616 X1.04 if you are playing along (larger than stock tires)

Mileage to beat 800

GG, Eich uses a little paint shop here in St. Cloud, they did a nice job on my GLI Lip. Talk to Jason in Parts.

Sam in St. Cloud

It'll be interesting to see your final tank numbers - both miles and gallons. What is your number when your fuel light comes on? I got to 760 adjusted before the fuel light came on.
