    Timing belt kit at RockAuto ?

    What stinks was the car i bought I couldn't find any record of if the belt had been changed. it looked ok, but can be famous last words so i had to get it done. After pulling the belt out it didn't look very old at all. Don't understand why people cant just use the little damn sticker you fill...

    Brembo 18z 6pot calipers discussion

    i have some boxster 996 calipers i was thinking could be used on the mk6 golf. Apikol has an adapter to make them work. Your posting made me remember i have them and could use them on a possible purchase of a 2012 golf i'm looking at.

    02 alh won't keep running

    yes it did. afterwards i checked the filter and the fuel level was low in the canister. so i dumped more into the filter. that is what makes me think that there's a restriction between the fuel tank and the filter.
