I have a home-made set-up for changing the DSG tranny fluid in the '08 Jetta.
I'm not burdened with the car or the ex any longer :p
Added a pic to my signature line :-)
Asking $25,000......hey, it was expensive to get rid of the car and the ex that came with it! :eek:
Ok Ok....how about $10...
There's a tranny repair shop across the street where I work......two things I've learned from having that shop over there:
1. I know what type of car not to buy
2. I know how they treat the customer's cars (hot rodding them)
I didn't feel much of a ridge....are you suggesting I re-use the bearings that are on the connecting rod's......I was thinking of just buying a set of original spec new ones if the crank mic's out at whatever it should be.
I didn't even know about the cold start knob on the '80 Dasher I'm working on......it sounded quite loud at start-up too....can't wait to see what it will sound like once I get it back together!
I think texcl has it identified for your noise.
Ya know, I was thinking about doing that....new rings, and crank bearings.....and a quick hone of the cylinders. I did that to a Kubota L295DT last Winter.
Dropped the head and flywheel off at Action Automotive in Shoreline, WA yesterday. They said the head looked really good....just getting it...
