    Fuel gage fluctuation-causes?

    Mine gets worse as the tank goes down... Which i figure is due to more sloshing in the tank as there is more room in there. It changed right when i did my manual swap.... Just a coincidence?? Or something to do with the swap procedure?

    lifespan of alternator?

    Way to bring threads back from the dead!! Mine went maybe 20k miles ago at 150k something as i remember... Suddenly just died!

    WTB New OEM MK4 heater core.

    You would go with aftermarket? I know how labor intensive it is just dont want to go with something subpar and have to do all the labor again prematurely. The part that sucks is i just did my blend doors a year or so ago... why didnt i go just a bit farther???
