    Sold. 2010 Golf DSG, 130k, Chapel Hill NC

    I put a new RCV in the compressor in September of '22. Air-conditioning works great. I put all new wiper blades on it a month ago.

    frequently asked torque specs

    These are specs from the Bentley repair manual. I ran a TDI specific shop for over 10 years. Ran em to 35. Not because I didn't trust the spec, but rather my wrench. I probably did like 800 ALH belt jobs. It's fine.

    Sold. 2010 Golf DSG, 130k, Chapel Hill NC

    I thought of something else! The Texas tint on the car is (very stupidly) illegal here in NC. I got a doctor's note excusing it. Something about migraines. So you'll need to jump through those few hoops, or remove the tint :(

    Sold. 2010 Golf DSG, 130k, Chapel Hill NC

    Sold. I'm reluctantly selling my beloved Golf. It's got some nice bells & whistles especially the Aux heater, PolarFIS, bi-xenon headlights and best of all no water-leaking, noise-making sunroof! I've had it since 2015 and about 70k. At that time the dealership had just installed a new fuel...

    Brand new mk4 02J EGR?

    Just buy a used one from Frans. I've bought dozens and never had an issue with any of the transverse boxes I got from him. I installed a cascade rebuild once (like 10 years ago) and all the shifter support pin bolts were left loose and stranded my customer the same day I...

    Difficulty Diagnosing ALH Overboost

    Check the air filter and snow screen for heavy debris. Make sure the large vacuum hose between the N75 and air box isn't plugged or that any part of it has become weak and is collapsing. A collapsing actuator line will also cause over boost.

    Poor fuel economy, turbo on its way out?

    Thermostat is the first thing to try. I just replaced mine on my 2010 last weekend. I never saw >180 all winter on my PolarFIS. After new Tstat it hit 192 after 8 miles. Haven't driven it enough to get MPG numbers but they will be higher now. Unfortunately the thermostat is not easy to change.

    2001 ALH Jetta - suddenly very little boost, after IP reseal. I have VCDS but new to it.

    What is the injection quantity reported in Measuring Block 001 at idle on a warm engine with the AC off?

    Hard tubing underneath IP is leaking water 2000 alh TDi

    I like to hit the bore in the block with a bit of sandpaper to dust off the rust. Wipe it clean after with a wet rag. I would usually give the o-ring a squirt of spray silicone lube to ensure that it doesn't roll when sliding in

    2003 Jetta Wagon 5speed for sale in Austin TX

    Hi everyone. My friend Jen crashed her Jetta and is ready to move on. The good: Manual ALH wagon. The bad: crashed. It really doesn't look too bad to me. Hood, fender, lock carrier. Possibly a radiator. Didn't even break the headlights! No damage to rear. 390k miles. But it got a new motor...
