    Mk5 Jetta Oil Analysis

    I know this is old news but thought I would post anyway. One cam lobe was square and one lifter was blown through at time of cam R&R ~20k miles ago.

    I attempted to upgrade my headlight circuit for better output and the option to add higher watt bulbs for an up and coming ecode installation. everything wired up nicely and worked fine.

    Feeler: Possibly Selling 91 Eco Diesel

    What is the going rate for an eco diesel these days. Might be selling my 91 eco diesel if I can get my hands on a 2000 Jetta TDI that I have been looking at. It has 300k miles, sunroof, faded red paint and the original clutch. Motor runs strong. Would like to get at least a grand for it.

    Bilstein TCs installed on rear, but....

I was thinking about replacing the two rubbers that sit above and below the shock tower plus the metal cylider that sits over the...

My brother had no idea why his was flashing so i looked it up in the owners manual and it noted that the water trap was probably full. Anyway, it has 295k miles on it with the original clutch. It is an...

    91 Eco Diesel Water Trap

    I have a leaking water trap (located by the fuel tank) due to the snapping of a certain plastic part. A new water trap is $250. Does anyone have a work around for this bastard part? is it necessary? I was thinking of bypassing it totally and letting the fuel filter do the water trapping. Thoughts.

    1998 Jetta stuck driver door

    Bryan, I had the same problem with my 98 Jetta on the rear passenger handles. I ordered a new handle for $20. A door handle with a lock will cost you $27 at made in germany too. It would be wise to lube the door latch mechanism that comes in contact with the striker as these...

    Brake shoe problems 98 Jetta

    Get a file and run it across the edge of the drum. This because the shoes wear the inner part of the drum and leave a lip.

    exhaust's time!!!

    exhaust\'s time!!! I went to a stainless exhaust shop and had a "straight pipe" put in from the down pipe to the muffler since mine busted. We removed the cat and resonator. Most muufler shops will have the equipment to make the necessary bends needed to run the straight pipe...

    CCV Breather Leak

    I was thinking of plugging mine also. I dont think it will be too long before the pipe cracks again. How long have you had yours capped at the engine?
