    Injection Pump in Minnesota

    Wow! Exactly what I saw (except for the camshaft sprocket) when Jake (MNmiser?) from North Branch came to me with his TDI towed to my garage. Then he had it towed to his house where I did the work. End up putting a new head and TB kit. Needed a new head due to countless times that people...

    I am technically available a lot of the times. If you want to do the labor yourself, I can be the tool guy. The job will be done in 3 hours. I have done it before and it goes fast. Since I know what tools you need for the next step and I can it ready to hand it to you. (like a dentist assistant)

    Diesel Purge - bypass the fuel filter or not?

    I completely understand what you are saying. My question is "Shouldn't the fuel in the fuel lines between the pump and filter been already filtered. So that means all the fuel in the pump and the lines from the pump and the injectors and back to the filter is already filtered." So what crap...

    I have a car here from Tamp, FL that died in WI on 94. They had it towed here. They are in town for a wedding. I looked at it and the fuel pump appears to be bad based on my observations and what he told me a little history of it. VagCom shows the Start Deviation code. I can't get it...

    Front crank seal pressedina bit too far?

    I had the same problem in the past. it is really a 60/40 chance that it won't leak. Just deal with it. Keep an eye on it. It may leak due to a nick in the seal lip. Remember those old days with the camshaft seals that the lip bends in. Same can happen but in general, it is fine. It may...

    Bobcat Does anyone have a Bobcat or know someone who has one? I just need to haul dirt from the property across the street to my backyard. Seems silly to rent one for a 20 minute job. If you do, email me as I may not check this thread often. I am located in Blaine.

    Issue with my beetle starting but stalling

    And be prepared to replace the batter before winter since you will have a hell of a hard time starting if the battery is drained once. It happened to me and the battery was like a year and half old. It got drained once in the summer and I charged it up. Everything was back to normal. Come...

    It is the last step. Follow the instructions for drain and fill the tranny fluid. When you get to the end where it said, to warm up a cold engine to 35-45 degrees. Start there and that is where the Check and Correct the fluid level instructions start. Or just come to my place and I would do...

    where to buy new timing belt/water pump?

    not only that (water pump) but the rollers seems to be better quality. I have seen them both, Jim's vs. others. I like Jim's. The way I tell those who ask me for a timing belt kit before I do the labor is to get Dieselgeeks first. If you don't like the price then get metalmanparts. Otherwise...

    It is most likely IQ adjustment needed. So you would need to drive a ways as the car needs to be hot when doing the adjustments.

    I would like to see the pictures. I am concern about how good did the shaft spin along with the pulley when it is without the key. I know you said that Macgyver it but ..... the word I am thinking is... oil.
