2003 Golf, 5spd manual, Frank rebuilt head less than 20k miles ago. At the same time I did the timing belt and turbo.
Buddy of mine is considering buying the car and he took it for a drive. Only concern he has is he thinks the engine is abnormally loud. I've never thought so, it is noisy but...
Rotate the injector pump pulley, right?
I switched the egr duty cycle last night from factory setting of 32xxx to 33xxx. This morning I head out for work and the engine starts fine with no rpm division
80 Miles less on this tank of fuel?!! Same driving style and location as always.
Any other input? I am not finding anything out of the ordinary, the car drives fine.
Which values and blocks should I check VIA vagcom?
There is not a clamp or anything on the vacuum line going to the EGR valve. Maybe the old EGR vacuum fitting had a residue/buildup on it which helped "seal" the connection. Whereas the new one is clean and polished so there isn't a very good seal, when the engine/vacuum line is cold. due to the...
I just verified that the EGR valve diaphragm opens at around 7in vacuum, and progressively opens and holds with more vacuum.
All hardware is tight, and I did use new gaskets (paper and metal) for new EGR replacement.
Both of the vacuum hoses are installed, one on the ASV, the other for the EGR...
The intake and all components was cleaned, timing belt was done, new turbo, rebuilt head, oil/coolant seals o rings and gaskets all replaced within the last 15k miles.
Fuel filter was done maybe 2k miles ago.
The old egr valve looked great, other than oily residue. I believe that I ruined the...
I replaced my EGR valve due to the insufficient flow CEL.
Good news is that the CEL is gone, and she passed inspection!
Bad news is that for the first 30 seconds or so after the engine starts, the idle fluctuates roughly 100rpm, as well as a mpg decrease of around 3mpg+?
I've only went...
If you are planning on the two inch lift, be aware that the front suspension is rock solid. It consumes a lot of the spring travel. When you go over bumps or pot holes it hits extremely hard and doesn't absorb much at all.
hmm, all excellent thoughts and bits of advice. I would certainly have a hard time getting rid of it, especially for anything under $5500. Going below that number just wouldn't make sense.
With the amount of fuel savings I get from the golf, in comparison to anything else I am considering, it...
