    Too much play? 2000 Jetta TDI 1.9 ALH

    Well what started out as an egr delete and intake cleaning now has morphed into turbo work as it needs cleaned also because of stuck turbo vanes. Got the sucker off and was wondering if this is too much play? Having a heck of a time getting the thing out also...

    Shifter identity

    2001 Jetta TDI that started out as an auto and I had it converted to a manual by Kansas City TDI. Trans and shifter came from a member here. Had this done about 10 yrs ago. Trans has been kinda hard to get into 5th lately so thought I might need to adjust the shifter. When it goes to the right...

    Intake ports on head

    Wow! Night and day difference. must have been pretty plugged when I brought it. No emissions test here in Illinois, that's why I went with a egr delete. Drilled the cooler, had at least a cup of oil in there. Here's the link to the stealth egr. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?p=711141

    I may end up doing a stealth egr, just haven't got around to it yet.

    Intake ports on head

    Yeah i've seen a video on youtube of that being done so i will probably do it to prevent any oil buildup. Yes, I deleted the egr and cooler.

    Looks like mine did. How did you get the head ports so clean?

    Intake ports on head

    I'm just about done on mine. Need to plug a couple of vacuum lines and I want to loosen my intercooler hose and be sure I don't have a bunch of oil sitting there before I fire it up. Probably will wrap things up tonight. I hope after all this work i at least get a few more mpg... :)

    Intake ports on head

    3rd one done, 3rd from the front, the other middle one. it wasn't as bad as the other one. Tracking these to give people an idea how long it takes to do. Think it's been an hour n half per port for me.

    Intake ports on head

    2nd one done. Did 1 of the middle ones, 2nd from the front of the motor. It was so bad I couldn't see the valve. Going to close the valves on the other middle one and do it next, save the easy one for last.

    Intake ports on head

    Well, 1 down 3 to go. Pick set helps a lot. Just got to be patient, pick, vacuum, pick, vacuum, etc. The stuff near the outside had a harder consistency, the further in i went it became more flaky. Didn't seem to be too much on the back wall. Didn't mess with the valve. The entire opening down...

    Intake ports on head

    David, I'm doing an EGR delete, cooler and all. No way I'm having this stuff build up again. KLXD, I'd love to get these ports cleaned out, hate the thought of leaving the stuff in there. Think I'm going to pick up a pick set today. I have a compressor and vacuum to use, I was worried I...
