    Easy way to delete most of the pics?

    I'd like to clear out a whole bunch of pics that are currently stored on the tdiclub server. I know how to do it 1 by 1, but is there a way to do a batch? Thanks

    Solid rear LCA bushings?

    I'm looking for a set of OEM VW solid lower control arm bushings to install in my Passat. I've found a nice long thread from vortex, but it's for the mk5 cars and the factory bushings seem to have a different part number. BUT..... If I dig a bit further, it looks like my bushings are shared...

    Intermittent no start?

    Me again! Intermittently, the car won't crank. Turn the key to on, and everything lights up as it should but when turning the key to crank, nothing happens. So far, it's only happened to her. Has anyone seen this on a 15 Passat?

    Getting Frustrated....

    Hi All, I'm a long time TDI guy having owned 2 MK3 diesels (1 TDI, 1 AAZ), 5 MK4 tdi's, and we also had an MK6 tdi wagon in the family for years. I bought a 2015 Passat TDI Comfortline (like an SE) 6 speed with 62k on it in August. We were pretty excited when we got it due to its combination of...

    Cannot fill fuel tank more than 4l

    Hi all, For the last few days, we haven't been able to put more than 4l into our diesel Passat. This is now with trying 2 different stations. Each time, I can see the diesel fuel overflowing up against the nozzle shutting it off. If I fill very slowly, I can get a bit more fuel in. Has anyone...

    Hitch input

    Hi all, Looking at putting a hitch on my 2015 Passat TDI. eTrailer offers these options - My reaction is to go with the DrawTite as it is a couple bucks cheaper than the Curt and much cheaper than the ecohitch. I'll be using it to carry our pedal bikes on a rack and perhaps renting a little...

    looking at a 15 Passat

    Hi All, long time no post - it`s been several years since my last tdi but i`m looking at buying a 15 Passat Comfortline (SE). I`m concerned about the seats. In the past, I haven`t found comfortline seats comfortable. I`m 6`3 and have several different back issues. I suspect that Leather from a...

    Biodiesel in Ontario (Ottawa Area)

    Hey guys, long time, no post. I've been out of the tdi game for a while now - mostly running old Mercedes these days and none of them are diesel (for now) For any who are interested, the gentleman west of Ottawa is doing biodiesel again. His email is FYI - I have nothing...

    Current source for biodiesel?

    Hi Guys, It looks like the guy who did Bio outside Ottawa has stopped - I didn't get an answer to my email. My D-Max has a couple bad injectors. I've followed the advise on cleaning them with no luck. My last ditch effort was to run some bio through them to to try to save them - i'm just...

    Best destination for a 3L?

    Hey guys, I'm starting to think about doing a 3l swap - that's the 1.2 tdi that powered the 3L Lupo. I've already spoken to Frans about availability. What do you guys think it would go best in? I was thinking MK1 or MK2, but there are very few nice ones around here.

    TDI in to Audi A6 C6 (2005)

    Found a 2005 A6 4.2 V8 where the engine stalled (likely a timing chain issue). Wondering about swapping a TDI into it. Maybe a BEW? A CR? Thoughts?

    Just bought an 03 Ram 3500

    It's not as clean as I would have liked, but for the price, I couldn't go wrong. It's also got a 6 speed which are quite rare up here. It's currently at VD Autoshop (local diesel guy) for a new set of injectors, steering joints and a nasty vibration at 75 mph. I very much doubt i'll be...

    Ontario consumer protection?

    Hi Guys (and Silver) Looking at buying a truck out of Ottawa from a dealer. What kind of protection do I have if there are any issues with the truck? They're saying that it's been inspected, but I will have to pass a Quebec safety with it, and would much rather they pay for any repairs that...

    Name this hitch!

    Hi guys, Just took this hitch off my 01. It's badly seized together so i'm looking for a replacement. The trick is that I probably want the exact same hitch so that I don't have to redrill the holes. I've googled and can't find a match. Anyone have an idea who made it?

    Fender looking for a lift...

    hi guys, this has worked in the past, so i'll try again - I've found a fender near Truro, Nova Scotia that another member is selling. Is anyone coming back from that area through Montreal in the next week or 2? I know it's a long shot - might go with the bus if we can't find anyone
