    Wow, what just happened to my car?

    I had loss of power for a long time and tried the N75, vacuum hoses and all the other checks recommennded befor eI eventually replaced the MAF. If you read 300 or so on the MAF under all conditions, it is the MAF. You could try cleaning it first as some people have had luck with that. Hope this...

    Pellets for the house

    Another pellet stove success story - My wife convinced me to buy a Harmon XXV for our 2500 sq ft colonial. It is in the living room, so she wanted it to look nice. Nice reads "pricey" AND I never thought it would pay itself off. WOW was I wrong. The stove is on the first floor and the heat...

    B4 Passat trouble shifting into 5th

    Pharoah, That's the only adjustment I know of. When my adjustment went bad, I adjusted and tightened the nut on the shift cable holder. Shortly after that, I lost fifth gear again. That's when I found the shift cable holder was broken. Don't know if it was originally broken or if I broke it...

    B4 Passat trouble shifting into 5th

    Did you get this fixed? If that adjusting nut is loose or the linkage shifted in that area, you may just need to make a little adjustment. Worse case, the whole piece can be cracked, allowing the linkage some slop and hard shift. ALL my local VW dealers had the plastic shift cable holder in...

    Water pump bolts seemed very tight on last TB change?

    Chris is right about not having to remove the injection pump. I started to do just the water pump front during my last timing belt change, but didn't count the number of bolts in the housing. Stupid me. The prying caused a breakage of the water pump housing. The only problem I ran into was one...

    Wicked Bummer - '97 B4 wagon seized after one day

    Wally, Any chance a piece of carbon has found it's way into a cylinder and jammed it? With 157K on it, if the intake has not been cleaned, it is a good pooosibility. Could explain a lot of the symptoms without a lack of oil.

    shifting problems

    dieselherb, Check the linkage at the transmission to see if anything is loose. The top cable bolts to the shifting mechanism and comes loose making it hard to find gears. Another problem could be the plastic piece that connects the upper and lower cables at the same point. I just replaced mine...

    How many times do you see a car like yours?

    N2TOH Where are you driving in NJ? I see one Passat TDI the same as mine 3-4 times a week and lots more newer Jetta and Golf TDI's daily. I travel about 140 miles on the GSP every day.
