    '03 Golf run away sitiuation after turbo replacement

    there are many things to check but #1 most likely is bent rods from that much oil ingested. either way you are taking the glow plugs out to get the oil out of the bowls so it could at least try and start. oil filled bowles will not let the car start so take them out and do a compression test...

    Door Rust Repair (Amateur Hour)

    imo get some fiberglass bondo behind all that from inside the door card. otherwise not too shabby! a bit more work to it and it would disappear!

    best nozzels for a 96 B4 to get low end power yet keep economy.

    It’s fairly simple to DIY but there are things you need to consider first. 1: They need to be poptested at 2 stages based on the RPM target for max flow. This is achieved by hydraulically popping them and recording the pressure then adjusting things via shims until all 4 are popping the same...

    best nozzels for a 96 B4 to get low end power yet keep economy.

    Fuel isn't the issue so much as it is boost. And the tune. Even if you have a tune written and nozzles pope tuned for lower rpm flow you still need a lot of air to give to any upgraded nozzle or you just end up with more smoke. The best way to get more low end power is to upgrade the turbo. An...

    Harmonic Balancer Stuck?!

    if these 2 do not work well for you (it should) you can put a slide hammer on it, same effect as the mallet but pulling away can be more effective if the hammer isnt doing the trick. , usually walking away for 30 minutes and trying again is more effective than you think! Good luck and welcome...

    Oil pump chain tensioner missing piece, still drivable? (WITH PHOTO!)

    its not so much its missing a piece so much as its old and "brittle" its probably fine for short startups but imo not worth risking. if it was new then id say if you dont see a crack on it then its fine but old i would not risk.

    Car with no key. Easiest way to get a tumbler out and which one ?

    Just another prime example of vendor status abuse and passive aggressive profanity. Got a problem bub? PM me like a man or just (in your words) stfu. There is an ignore feature and I suggest you use it. Your question answered itself when you asked it. You know what to do so why ask! It's very...

    WTB: 2000-2003 TDI manual Jetta, Golf or Wagon

    well you should put your buying price out there. a car with your needs is borderline into unicorn land unless you do not count a project car as one with a lot of miles. IMO all cars over 8 years old with over 150 to 200k miles plus are project cars. reliable yes, but still a project car. a few...

    Rim help - mine split in 2.

    yes, its called a stress shier fracture. very common on a wheel that has been impacted that hard. plenty of videos on youtube especially "just-rolled-in" and other various wannabee mechanics compilation channels. why would VW give you a new wheel or for that matter all 4 on a car that they did...

    AHU won't rev above 2400rpm

    Check physical timing. It could have skipped a tooth. Same with DC's timing graph. Things sit for a long time are suspect to rodent. I know you checked the exhaust and intake What about wiring? Its entirely possible to bend a rod. Doing a compression test is probably the next step past...
