    OT: Need to get a Smoke Test

    I have a few trouble codes on my 2012 Corolla that indicate an issue with the Evap system. A smoke test to check for leaks in the Evap system is recommended. Are there any shops in the GTA that anyone can recommend that can do a smoke test at a reasonable price? If there's any club member in the...

    Are you still driving your TDi?

    So finally the day that I never expected would come was today. My ALH suffered an unexpected power steering high pressure line leak over the past weekend. Due to my current and upcoming situation, I could not justify the repair costs of the part. So I decided to let it go. It's gone to a local...

    Exhaust leak at actuator arm

There's a very small soot mark there. Due to the tight space I wasn't able to do a soapy water test, however I did not...

    Exhaust leak at actuator arm

    @cdi320 - Yes I'm referring to that arm only. It's possible as shown in this video of a T5 Transporter TDI: . A similar thread on another TD forum - https://www.myturbodiesel.com/threads/exhaust-leak-at-turbo-actuator-arm.35538/ Simon - I didn't get a chance to take any pictures as it was...

    Exhaust leak at actuator arm

    Hi: Lately there's been a strong exhaust smell when the engine is running and I'm standing outside the car, so I thought it's the usual exhaust pipe behind the cat that needs to be replaced. I took it to Majestic Muffler near my house. They put it up on the hoist and showed me soot marks where...
