    Glow plug issue and some general questions

    From what I know of the glow plug system - they are powered on if the temperature is below a set threshold and the lower the temp, the longer the plugs are receiving current. I am not aware of the glowplugs continuing to get current while the engine is being turned over though.

    Cruise Control Not Working After Engine Swap

    If you aren't getting power on the black wire - you don't have a problem with the stalk. The black wire should have 12v when the ignition is on. If you don't, you need to look downstream. Steve is right on one hand with there being no control module, but this black wire seems to deliver power...

    Cruise Control Not Working After Engine Swap

    From the link I sent you earlier in this thread: 5) The black wire is the 12+ and should be live when the ignition is on, this should be connected to one side of the on/off switch.

    What is venting and why does my car not get the mileage i see others achieving?

    Keep in mind there are a few Canadians and Europeans on this site and imperial gallons is the gallon used and that gallon is 4.54 litres vs 3.98 litres for your US gallon. So when a Canadian says they get 62mpg - its 62 miles on a slighter larger gallon...

    I wonder if the wiring from the stalk is matching the wiring to the ecu?? That's why I posted the link so it might help identify.

    The wiring from the cruise control stalk goes directly to the fuse box panel in a TDI -- from there to the ECU - the gas version plugs into a different spot on that fuse block I believe. It's a four wire harness.

    Rear Axle Beam Bushing Re&Re

    I put this off on my 99 A3 even as the odo hit 430,000km. The handling was poor and it was wandering and it rusted out before I got under it. My 'new to me' 98 wanders off the crown, pulls a little left and handles like it's in mud. I have done the front end - and it needed it. LCA bushings...
