  • Hi Oilhammer,
    I saw a super old post of yours where you mentioned you replace a lot of RCV valves. I recently replaced mine with a super cheap one, no brand (i.e. polar bear/RKX) and was wondering if you’ve had cases where you’ve had to replace them twice bc of poor quality replacement?)

    I have had to replace them again after a similar amount of time as the original, if that is what you mean. I may also have my very first "defective" one in that the customer says the A/C does not turn off.

    Thank you for that response, I think it makes sense. Have you ever had an RCV valve failure be the cause of an ac compressor not engaging?

    The compressor is always "engaged", there is no clutch.
    Hi Oilhammer, 2005 Passat TDI clogged Catalytic Converter - no one makes a replacement Cat, No Dealer - no aftermarket ones.
    Might have to gut both chambers but will I set off the Sensors that are in each chamber and get a constant Check Engine Light? Any tips on replacing a cat convert unit that does not exist anymore and not triggering those sensors? Best , Blair

    There’s an app called Car-Part.com it’s connected to lots of junkyards. Might be your only option besides gutting or removing me getting a tune
    oilhammer, i was reading a thread from a while ago and was wondering if you the part numbers to replace the chain driven oil pump on an 02 alh with the chainless pump. Btw we have met at several southeast gtg. DanG144, TerryTdi, Turbinewhine (rest in peace my friend) houpty are some of the people I used to go to gtgs with.

    Crap, any ideas on a cam and pistons, bearings and such for a rebuild on that engine, want to build a new engine for an 03 with a few internal upgrades. it has a rocketchip stage 4 in it now with a vnt -17, was thinking about a stage 2 or 3 colt cam and vnt 17/22.

    A friend said to run a lower compression piston to accommodate the added air and fuel. Any thoughts you have and are willing to share I would be most appreciative. Thanks, Dan A.K.A. Fred

    Yeah, I don't get into that stuff much anymore, sorry. Most folks now just want the cars to be reliable, economical, and long lasting. You may contact Frank Irving and see what he can offer.
