    GUIDE: How to make your O2J shifter feel less sloppy and other information.

    Intake Manifold Flap stick open/closed

    Generally, replacing the V157 will result in a car that cannot be fixed. The original motor didn't go bad. I offer free troubleshooting to my customers privately only due to theft of my IP. If you buy one of my brackets I can help you.

    IP top and bottom seal how-to (?)

    I've been selling pump seals for 15ish years and I can say the JB-Weld method is the best at getting the QA back to exactly where it was prior to changing the TDI injection pump seals. Having four fracture zones to match up is very accurate.

    P2015 intake manifold flap fix how-to

    The best idea is to start a conversation via email with us so we can send you the troubleshooting email. We ask for a good clear picture of the installed part and any other codes you might/may be seeing before or after the install. Don't respond here but to our email address as we do not...

    Dieselgeek replacement MK4 shifter bushings!

    If you are having issues engaging first when at a stop it might be clutch related. It is very unlikely that you have worn parts on such a new car. I could send you my shifter adjustment video but you should contact me directly through Dieselgeek and perhaps a quick phone call can point you in...

    That's also a pre-production part above^^^. The finished parts will be closed at the top so no dirt gets into the bushing. Lifetime part.

    Hi y'all, I wanted to mention that I am offering a new bushing for the four speed automatic transmission cable end found in 1999.5 and newer MK4 Golf and Jetta and 1998 - 2010 New Beetles. This is on the tranny end which is the one most likely to fail...

    IP top and bottom seal how-to (?)

    I run Dieselgeek.com and you can order seals there. I only recommend replacing the fuel temp sensor if you are having timing stability issues.

    IP top and bottom seal how-to (?)

    Yes. But it would be a shame though to not fix the 10mm pump first since the only thing wrong with it is seals.

    IP top and bottom seal how-to (?)

    The cast iron head has the 60mm round seal that we sell in Viton.

    ALH pumps have 10 pin plugs.

    IP top and bottom seal how-to (?)

    JB-Weld works great, assuming that you have degreased the pump well enough for it to grab hold of the aluminum. There is a compelling argument to apply the JB-Weld before your pump starts leaking. There is no need to over-complicate this. Folks have been using the JB-Weld trick since 2005...
