    New bew turbo

    The only way to know for sure is to measure the intake & exhaust sides.

    FS: Older Hex-Com Cable

    Older Hex-Com cable, 9 Pin Serial Interface great for older TDI's which don't have CanBus! I finally decided I need a CanBus cable with USB. Willing to trade up for cash or just sell outright. Maybe $100 US? I honestly don't what the market value is for these right now. Thanks! Chris SOLD

    Why we change everything in the TB path

    I even asked when I got my first TDI about the a T/B change at the selling dealer. "We only change the belt & possibly the tensioner if it is bad." Yikes...didn't take long browsing here to know better.

    Craigslist...BEWARE!!!

    I know I am stating the obvious but in my search for another TDI I do go on the dreaded list. You would not believe the attitude I get for asking the questions we all would ask about TDI's. Timing Belt changed the proper way? Camshaft condition? Proper Oil?...etc. I guess it's funny the oil...

    Like these? http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/cto/4907738580.html http://cnj.craigslist.org/cto/4854405015.html http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/cto/4881700635.html http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/cto/4909588067.html Point is the car is overpriced for what I could get, sorry you find...

    Because it is referred as a the Turbo Actuator in the service manual. Which is what I would refer to it as and any mechanic would sans, your friend. Caring has nothing to do with it.

    My car gets colder at an idle, and warmer while driving?

    To add to all of this older HD diesel trucks are similar. I remember driving my aunts 3500 Cummins and rolling down the highway it was struggling to keep heat in the engine. Stopped at a fuel station and the whole radiator in the front was the same temp as the outside air which was around...

    All part store thermostats are garbage. All of them unless you can verify it is indeed made by the OEM manufacturer. I've been burned too many times. The coolant gauge is not accurate. It is an estimation of what the ECU wants you to see. So trust me the car is never cooling down to 60-70F...

    ^ That makes more sense...but why not just call it that.

    Struggling to start in very cold weather (-20C)

    That is great, I had a spotty crank sensor on my PD. Replacing with a new sensor helped a lot but ultimately I was going to perform that TSB. Timing on a PD is usually set & done on a timing belt job. You could adjust the cam sprocket if need be.
