    Sad day......Audi TT -> TDI "ran away"..........

    If it did not reach high RPMs, like above red line, you may be O.K. Tough engines. You do need to repair the whatever (turbo likely +?). May be a good idea to remove the valve cover and inspect for damage.

    What’s the best TDI to buy

    That's too bad. Hybrid is what I was considering for my partner's future car. We love our Gen.3 CR-V, but it's gonna wear out soon. So who makes a good hybrid? Original Thread: conclusion- 2015 TDI, but we think you should consider other cars for your purposes. VW guy what does all my hard...

    Limp mode 02 beetle

    WAG- If you just take it in, $1-2 thousand. If you troubleshoot and repair your ownself $5-5 hundred.

    Crank no start, getting fuel

    Since the TB service is so recent I would take a close look to see it's all proper. Aligned and tensioned. The other thing to consider is fuel, air+diesel. Clogged snow screen, dirty filter, loose big air pipes.

    Anyone have luck with the URO brand valve cover available through ID Parts ?

    The ALH has a permanent integral gasket. The cover can be used over and over until it can't. 2 drops of sealant at two 90 degree corners.

    VCDS Worthwhile?

    License is in the cable. You want this one. Since you bought a newer car you may have for a while, it might be nice to have. But if you're not gonna wrench on it yourself you may not need it, though it's always good for troubleshooting.

    Can you record mileage of timing belt service in computer?

    The chip tuners sometimes add text to the vehicle description in the ECU. No idea how you can DIY.

    help with oil light issues

    We know it only monitors at certain RPMs. Only spec I could find is 25psi @2K. Guessing that's with a warmed up engine, but it may not matter.

    Had to share this exquisite found-online gem.

    $900 is nothing these days. From the photo of the cam, looks like it's been sitting outside with the valve cover off. Big issue, and why I wouldn't go near it-

    Ac stopped blowing cold but compressor stays on

    I'm guessing here, but when you run the AC a while, the box should feel cold if it's a failed blend door. If not could be the compressor. Do both the radiator fans run with AC on?

    Circle Dash Light

    That's normal with the wear indicator on. Refresh the parking brake cables, service the lever and return spring on the caliper. Go ahead and clean+re-grease the slider pins. Just because.

    My car won't start...

    Once you evaluate the lower end as good and decide to do the top, do it all. Internals like camshaft should show little to no signs of wear. I'm lucky, my brother is a machinist. Much of the internals need machinist method and tools. You can do that stuff your ownself, but beware of cheap tools...

    Need Help with Leaking Glow Plug

    Hopefully Frank can hook you up with a solution not requiring head remove. In the meantime, I'd try a fastener and a washer, if available an interference bolt, like they use on aircraft, might seal it. You can certainly get by with 3 glow plugs.
