    More power from pumping brakes

    Recently I noticed when standing at a red light and pump my brakes a few times, my car takes off much faster than if I didnt pump the brakes. It feels very peppy for 5 minutes or so, and the brake pedal is more sensitive too. Anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

    Max. oil pressure ?

    I was just wondering what is the max oil pressure in a 98 Jetta TDI. I am thinking of getting an oil pressure gage and just want to know what PSI range should be good. I think 150 PSI gauge might be enough but then I might be wrong. ------------------ 98 Jetta TDI
