    ALH TDI 1.9 L to pickup swap suggestions

    I have a 2003 vw jetta tdi 1.9L ALH. I'm thinking about taking the motor, (and anything else useful), from the ALH and throwing it into a light pickup. I'd like to get a light 4x4 going with the 1.9L ALH engine. I'm looking for something with a little bit of a bed and the 4x4. I've seen...

    is there a connection between vacuum system/egr/brakes/high pressure pump issues?

    @csstevej could the leak from the ip onto the coolant hose, and the coolant hose swelling up cause the windshield wiper fluid to stop working by any chance? my windshield wiper fluid stopped squirting a while ago even though the reservoir is full, not sure if they could be related. I also...

    is there a connection between vacuum system/egr/brakes/high pressure pump issues?

    @csstevej I was trying the petroleum jelly/t-valve test today and when we tried starting the jetta up I noticed fuel dripping from under the ip, the more you crank the faster it drips. so I'm guessing that means there's an issue with the ip seals.

    is there a connection between vacuum system/egr/brakes/high pressure pump issues?

    @csstevej thanks for the tip on testing the t-valve! I'll definitely try that. Is there any test I can do to see if the problem is the injection pump?

    I have a 2003 vw jetta tdi 1.9L manual transmission. It's been having a hard time starting. I have to prime the high pressure pump and try several times to get it to start, then if I let it sit over night it won't start again. I've replaced fuel filter, t-valve, long 5/16 fuel line that runs...

    starting issue possible fuel pump

    This is a picture of what I've been referring to as the "lift pump", it's in the gas tank. The car has a new starter, the battery has been tested and is good, if I prime the high pressure pump it will start and run. I'm getting some air if I hook a vacuum pump up after the fuel filter before...

    @CleverUserName thank you for getting back to me on this so quickly. I have noticed that the top of the fuel filter is wet, and I did notice some bubbles moving around once while someone else cranked. If it is leaking what should I do?
