    Front end Grinding noise

    It was the outer CV joint. I pulled the boot back and it was very dry and gritty inside. New was was fairly inexpensive and went on easily enough.

    Front end Grinding noise

    Well, got it all back together and the noise persists. As of right now my new diagnosis is a bad CV joint on the driver side. I'll be taking it to a shop to confirm this before I throw more parts at the thing, but with all the suspension checked over, I am convinced that the noise is not related...

    Does Diesel Purge go off?

    Okay, thanks for the help everyone. It's for an ALH, so I guess it will go through no worries. Even still I'll wait until I fill up next to dilute it down.

    Front end Grinding noise

    Disassembled the driver side, the top mount is about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch shorter then the new one, and the bearing was rusted to hell. The one surprise was the bumpstop beng wrecked, so I've ordered a new set and will reassemble everything once they arrive. One potential future issue I can...

    Front end Grinding noise

    So I put the car up today. Both springs, while rusty, look intact and unbroken. The dust shields are both clear of the rotors, and I don't think they would make such a bad noise anyways. Any other ideas before I replace the top mounts and bearings and call it a day?

    Front end Grinding noise

    Good Day all. My 2000 jetta has started making an awful grinding noise on low speed turns. I bought new front strut mounts and bearings, but before I take it all apart is there any other component which could be the culprit? The noise doesn't really happen when I am stopped and turning the...

    Does Diesel Purge go off?

    Came home for christmas and found an old can of Liqui-Moli Diesel Purge (about 6 years old). Does this stuff go off like olf gas and diesel left in cans? It's still sealed if that helps, just need a second opinion.

    Potential starter issue

    Good day all Car wasn't starting after it sat for a few months, wouldn't jump from another car either, it would just turn over very slowly. Pulled the battery and reconditioned it on a NOCO charger, and reinstalled. The starter spins faster then it did originally, but the engine no longer turns...

    MK4 Battery Hold Down Tab

    My captive nut mounted beneath the battery tray which the tab's bolt fastens to has come free, and now any attempt to loosen the bolt and remove the battery just spins the lower captive nut. I have tried reaching through as much as possible but can't get a wrench or socket on the nut as is. If...

    Water pump seizure on east coast update

    So the jetta is okay, after 6 weeks and a few repair procedures the mechanic gave me the green light. I was right about the water pump seizing, except it wasn't the pump itself, it was the pump ingesting a piece of my old thermostat and the impeller stopping. I am madly in love with the man who...
