    new battery brand

    One day last week the battery just decided to start putting up a fight. Before it can't make it any more (well, probably just after that), I'll replace with either the Walmart Eveready or Costco Delco. Is there any preference between the two (other than $)?

    Good $$ for 1000Amp battery in the GTA

    daym, that's like a short drive from me. I wonder how it stacks compared to the Eveready from Walmart and Delco from Costco. My battery protests starting, even after only 2.5 years! Can't wait till it starts getting cold!!

    You can wrap a rag around the injector lines where they are loose (pump, head) to stop fuel oil spraying everywhere (very, very, very annoying thing to have happen). That's what I'll do next time.

    30psi boost spike on our Upsoluted 01TDI NB

    I used a 30psi to -30inHG gauge from a surplus store, from a who-knows-what-how-old engine (my girlfriend's brother in law used to work there, what a surprise!), and I would nover get more than 25psi, 24 was hard to achieve, 22 more likely, and 17.5psi at steady.

    Jetta dies young at 126,000KM ... UPDATED PICS BIG

    Whenever I've seen something labelled "LOW SULFUR DIESEL!!" it was the same price as any other diesel.
