    I (always) do the same thing, but with the rubber friendly grease, the silicone one :cool:

    Why is it smoking...

    Edit: Not 100 gr, but 100 ml. Well, if you are not converting it, maybe it's a liter :) If yes, it's a 3.38 oz. :)

    Why is it smoking...

    Coolant on the same level for years. Diesel purge used a couple of years ago, independently of the problem with the smoke... the smoke is present after parking the car downhill, never uphill.

    Why is it smoking...

    Valve cover gasket in perfect condition, no even smallest leaks. The oil smell comes from the exhaust pipe smoke.

    Why is it smoking...

    1. Is it water cooled? I think not mine and egr is off already two years. Engine was smoking before egr turn off too. 2. It smells like an oil.

    Why is it smoking...

    Why is my car smoking always when it is parked downhill?! Starting the engine after some time, the smoke makes such a horror... It smokes like somebody burned a tire (but smoke is white)! I need some good accel. pedal flooring and some 10 miles drive to rid off of the smoke. Drivers behind me...

    Warped(?) rotors... again

    I was just checking all my threads and found out that I "didn't end properly" this one, I forgot to inform you after solving the problem. So, machining the rotors w/o taking them off solved the vibration problems, but... ...replacing the wheel hubs (new ones!) made my braking nightmares to...

    Sudenly higher RPM at idle

    Yesterday I had a 200mi combined city/open road trip. Rpms normal, glow plug light behaving normal also, outside temp around 95°F, so I can confirm: one of the problems causing incorrect gp on/off light and high rpms at idle is the broken coolant temperature sensor! CTS part# 357919501A

    Sudenly higher RPM at idle

    Today and yesterday, 50 miles, all is ok. I think I can "close" this post with conclusion that the broken coolant temperature sensor can cause the problem described in my first post. Thanks for the help to all of you guys!

    Sudenly higher RPM at idle

    Coolant temp.sensor changed this morning (gp light works like it should), drove some 20mi, all was ok. We'll see this week what would happen further.

    Seat heater

    Bump! I covered the wires with piece of cotton t-shirt, bonded two cloth pieces with Victor Reinz gasket sealing compound which is +300°C temp.resistant. We'll see what would happen when time comes up.

    Seat heater

    Repairing passenger seat foam and I want to repair heating wires also. What cloth should I use to cover exposed wires? Should it be some specific material? Thank you.

    Sudenly higher RPM at idle

    Same things today, glow plugs on for 15 secs (outside temp. +35°C/95°F), rpms around 1000/1100 on idle... Next week I'm changing the coolant temp sensor, I hope the gp light will go back to normal. I found the following text somewhere on the internet, about the high rpms: "High engine idle can...
