    Been here twice now, first time three bent rods and two valves. Compression check was well within spec but difficult cold starts with white smoke until it warmed up. Only found the bent rods after removing the head and measuring piston protrusion. Basic in frame rebuild. Second time only one...

    Which rear Strut Mount Round or Oval

    Yes rear mounts have rubber bushing, mine are off now and at 295k they look and feel fine. Springs on the other hand, both broken. Be sure to look closely at the springs, their failure is well documented. Both are broken at the bottom coil.

    Brm Black black smoke, won’t drive P0131,P0101

    Apologies, that would be post #68. "Start with the car up to operating temperature. Use VCDS, Basic Settings channel 011, turn "ON" The car will slowly idle up to 1400 rpm +/-. Now the VNT is in a calibration mode. Note the boost values when the VNT is fully closed and fully open. You are...

    Brm Black black smoke, won’t drive P0131,P0101

    Jakub, I'll not pretend to have all this memorized, I just stumble along till I find useful info then try to apply it. Post #68 explains very well the info your looking. The entire turbo set up is a pain but well worth the time. The stop is very sensitive and dialing in the actuator will test...

    Italian tune-ups really work!

    After the RC tune, I back off before the rev limiter kicks in. I have never hit it and it kind of scares me when the needle is racing toward the 6k mark :eek:

    Does anyone know if my water pump broke??

    I only have one so right away you're twice as smart as I am ! ! ! hahaha If you know how to work on things, just do it - I have replaced three to date and there's nothing to it. Like Franko ask, can you follow instructions? And as Tony said - you will need the proper tools / fixtures to index...

    Drive It Like I Stole It? What does that mean?

    This thread had me lol more than most. Conan, seems as though you have things very well under control ! ! ! One thing not mentioned, or I missed it, is to roll into the throttle - not slamming the pedal to the floor. As with most threads on all forums, this one has more misleading info than...

    Replacing fuel temp sensor, tutorial

    01 TDI Jetta MORE POWER!

    Ok, you do the work and $900 will take you this far - also the point I am at. Add another $1200 for an upgrade turbo. PP520's first will give you a nice bump - but add the tune on top of that and hold on to your hat - 50%+ more HP is very nice. Jeff worked his magic back in Nov 08 and the stock...
