    Walmart to quit selling big bottles of PowerService!

    I was just at my local Walmart and noticed the big bottles (treats 250 gallons) had a red sticker and was marked down to $9.00! A employee walked by and I asked them if the red sticker meant they were going to quit selling it to which he replied "Yep!". Looks like they will still carry the...

    Anyone know how to prime IP on BRM?

    After a week of good progress (TB change, rear rotor and pad replacement etc.) I decided to do the diesel purge thing. Half way through the can bubbles started to appear in the little clear filter I was using and the engine started to jump so I turned it off and now I can't get it started...

    Strange turbo problems on way to work this morning. How to trouble shoot?

    On the way to work this morning, my 2002 MK-Iv(A4) was acting strange. I noticed that the boot was way high even though I wasn't romping on it. Then I felt a slight surge and the boost dropped to next to nothing ... maybe 5-6 psi tops ... and not much power. Could it be my actuator or vanes...

    The secret of the A5/MkV trunk release that does not close when cold

    Tonight I fixed the trunk which probably still will not get me any points with my wife ;). I've heard of others replacing their latch or having the dealer do it under warranty. We have almost 80k so no warranty. I'm not quite convinced the latch was the problem. I compared the new one to the...

    Can VAG-COM tell me if I'm getting enough fuel?

    Been looking around here trying to figure out if there is a way to log fuel requested/needed vs actual fuel delivered. With all the talk of 10mm, 11mm pumps, chipping, being starved for fuel ... I'd like to be able to do some logs to know if I suffer from fuel starvation and to what extent...

    TB change now no start!!!

    [update] This is a thread I started when I finished my fist TB and the car started while I had the valve cover off doing open heart surgery and ran until I yelled for my wife to kill it when oil started coming up in the valve area. I was happy and put it back together and failed to pay...

    Boost Spikes - analog or digital gauge/pros & cons???

    I guess I should have called this mechanical vs digital! I've been searching these forums trying to educate myself on boots gauges, boost valves etc. I'm leaning toward getting the in dash DIY digital LED boost gauge that goes in the dash around the tach that ShokWaveRider (IMP) has. From...

    06 ABS coding. No suspension

    Was looking at my ABS coding in VAG-COM. Doesn't look like there is a coding for suspension ... like it was left out. Anyone else observed this? My coding is 21122 for a 06 pkg 1 TDI.

    I went by my dealership to pick up a filter and remembered that I needed some PS fluid (but didn't know the part number) so I just asked and they sold me a 12 oz. bottle of G 002 012. I got home and checked my Bentley Service manual and it says to only use G 002 000 so I searched all over this...
