    Who’s going to Tesla after their current TDI?

    Quoting Elon "We can coup whomever we want." Pulitzer prize winning journalist Chris Hedges and the experts leave not a hair of doubt as to what has been stated over again-- All EV's will do is breed wars for minerals we do not possess based on a fallacy sold to the masses for profit.

    Non-tdi 1.6L fuel pump tuning

    The last owner suggests I should do a head gasket change. Lol wut. He also mentioned that he advanced the pump before he sold it to me. Now I don't smell anything sweet out of the exhaust suggesting a bad head gasket. But low compression head/valves is a dead-on reason for extensive smoke.

    Non-tdi 1.6L fuel pump tuning

    Advancing it did not help. I took off the belt and it's just too much smoke to be just one issue. The rear bolt for the pump was also missing. Air in the system is definitely one culprit, but I think the whole shebang needs to be timed along with the pump timing. Might as well get new belt and...

    Non-tdi 1.6L fuel pump tuning

    I'll do the tubing but reason I think it needs to be advanced is because with initial startup, the motor don't want to stay on without a good amount of throttle. Once warmed it will stay on, but it is idling on the verge of shutting off with non aggressive shifting/not shifting with high revs.

    Closest thing I have is an extractor and to get the mity vac it's a 2 hour trip to harbor freight been super lazy since yesterday (finally got couple of days off), feel like loosening the timing belt from the tensioner and advancing the pump one tooth forward. Bad idea?

    Bear with me as I try to comprehend how to go about this... will I not introduce air to the system when replacing with new tubing?

    There's another silver lining-- I watched Suicide Squad at the movies. My choice of seating and enough bubble zone to go around for everyone. The movie itself was actually kind of funny and entertaining. There's another movie I'd really like for you guys to watch in reference to our previous...

    Got the 5spd to engage in all gears and fortunately did not have to swap any 5spd linkage, shafts or the shift box. If you're standing in front of the car with the hood up, the link which is horizontal to you with ball joints on both ends... ...just flip it around. You may have to turn the...

    And even after covid stats prove just how lethal it is, there is a debacle over politicians fighting against mask mandates in schools.

    Listen. The middle east had a proper government in the 14th century with astronomers and traders alike.... waaaay before there ever was a United States. You want to talk about space travel, then know that in our time as the current inhabitants of Earth, astronomy started with Muslims right there...
