    ///// Healthy Coal !! /////

    Times they have changed. Careful Andy, The Cancel Culture Justice Warriors are at the gate. I get up to 50mpg but drive a dirty diesel. Just drink the koolaid and we can all live in utopia.

    Boost and/or Fueling Issues After 1019 Nozzles and Stage 4

    I appreciate posts that discuss the software and it’s effects on the hardware. To me, it is so much more valuable than another stuck vanes diagnosis. tdi_my live, thanks for your input. Most that truly understand the programming are venders and they have little to no incentive to share this...

    Cheaper Delete options

    Half the people on here have egr delete or a tune or transplanted motor from car a to car b or support venders that sell race parts. Why poo on this fella? It’s ok for the long time members to be a douche, but not the new guy? This thread failed miserably!

    EPA cracks down on “coal roller” supplier

    I guess if you can afford a helicopter or plane to get to work or your kid’s basketball game your a hero we should all look up to. Emissions? What’s that? Good news is, if we just give them everything that ask for they will look out for our best interest. Ask an Indian. Wait, can I call them...

    And that’s why the MK4 ALH has a cult like following! Warms my heart.

    How to measure a wheel spacer?

    Stock lugs are 27mm in length. Measure spacer width and add that to the 27mm and you will have length required.

    Good East Bay TDI Mechanics?

    Sonoma Autowerks LLC in Petaluma is worth a look. Been a while since I used them but would again now that our Guru has escaped.

    Rattle at Idle

    Thanks for that. I’ll plug in today and bump it up a tad, if I can. I have smacked the dash to no affect. The sound appears to come through center vent deep in the dash. Maybe engine compartment? If I hold RPMs at 950, no vibration. Car is pretty much rattle free with exception of this...

    Rattle at Idle

    Ever since 11mm pump upgrade and tune I’ve had a rattle coming from center of the dash. This occurs only at 903rpm. I’m wishing I would have opted for the dynamic idle just to get past the harmonics causing my pain. About to tear dash apart to find offender. Anybody else have this affliction?

    Right rear tail light out

    If you replaced bulb with used, don’t be surprised if the replacement bulb has high resistance contact too. File/sand bulb contacts clean and reinstall with dielectric grease.

    Buying 00 jetta

    All good advice. If you’ve never driven one, at minimum, take someone that has. A nice test drive with someone familiar and you can get an idea of what you got. Even then, count on surprises. Not to scare you away, but give you realistic expectations.

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Stock height but recently refreshed suspension. Lowering these cars can make it look pretty but kills the ride and takes the oil pan from bad location to stupid location, even with the armor installed. Tires are slightly over stock at 215/55R16. In a different post I stated I thought it was...
