    Transmission Oil Leak at VW Cap

    Had this leak about 40K miles, but just keep an eye on the trans oil level and add if needed. It doesn't leak much, but always looks like this when I take of the belly pan. Do I need to pull it off and re-apply silicone gasket sealer? It doesn't seem to be coming from the fill plug or...

    Another Timing Belt Roller Question: ALH

    Before I realized the dealer did not replace "all" TB parts including tensioner, rollers, etc, I had them do the TB. It was part of a deal that they provided labor and I paid for the parts only. I am at 50K miles on these parts: 038-109-119-M Tooth Belt 038-109-243-N Roller 038-121-011-AX...

    Anybody explain this surge

    I have posted this problem previously, but had some other issues associated and wanted to bring focus to this issue solely. The other post is here: At WOT I don't have the surge and at very low throttle input it...

    How to clock turbo exactly?

    While under my car today I noticed the compressor outlet hose going to the lower IC pipe is interfering with the power steering line pretty badly. I have a piece of rubber there for now, but I don't think it should be up against a metal hose. How exactly do I go about "clocking" the turbo if...

    No turbo whistle at idle anymore?

    I have been trying to diagnose what may be wrong. I have no muffler and used to hear the typical turbo whistle at idle. It seems to have gone away and I have a surge in power when the initial turbo surge bleeds off right around 2500-2700 rpms. I mainly feel the surge in 1st and 2nd gear. I...

    Knocking sound heard with go pedal then letting off

    I've been noticing a slightly metallic knocking noise when I shift and the motor is not sending torque to the drivetrain. I can also do it if I'm in gear and slightly tap the go pedal, then let off and let the engine brake the car. Not sure where to start?

    O2J Manual Transmission leak

    After my 5th gear swap I had to disassemble everything and re-torque the bolts holding the gears. I had replaced the transmission cover gasket, but had to pull things back apart. I have had a slow leak that doesn't seem to remedy itself. I've tried torquing the bolts tighter, looser, etc...

    What is the problem???....Need help please

    I still have not found a solution from anyone. When I rapidly pump the brake pedal 4 to 5 times, I loose power assist. It returns in a few seconds, but was scary the other day when I went over some heavy bumps on a downhill. I have replaced the large vacuum hose assembly from the brake...

    Noise from transmission at idle.

    A few thousand miles ago I upgraded to a VR6/G60 clutch kit. All parts were brand new and it was installed by a VW mechanic. Everything was fine after the install, no chatter like others. Just recently a fairly loud noise has developed at idle and doesn't change when pushing in the clutch...
