    SSCTDO (TDI Club Secret Society of Chevy TD owners)

    OK, I think I will, but I will make it for just Chevy, since it seems they will be offering more than a Cruze TD. Plagiarizing is acceptable in a post, it seems, so here it goes. This is an invitation to all members who are currently hiding in the shadows, too frightened by the VW fanaticism...

    FS: MKV items in New Hampshire

    We bought these items for our 2010 Jetta. We let VW buy it back, so we do not have need for these items anymore. The asking price listed includes shipping in the US unless otherwise stated. If you live relatively close by New Hampshire and want to pick it up locally, or meet me somewhere (within...

    FS in NH: B4 parts car

    SOLD I have a 1996 Passat sedan with very high mileage, still runs, but may appeal more for parts than for a whole car. Asking $500 for the whole thing. I do not have the energy to part it out myself. :) See link to the post in the Cars for Sale section...

    96 Passat B4 for sale in New Hampshire

    SOLD Its on ebay now, so no longer for sale on this site. I am sad to say I am selling my 96 Passat B4, at just over 500K. I am becoming physically incapable of keeping up with the repairs. I have rheumatoid arthritis and the last few repairs have left me in pain for days following, so I...

    00741 - Brake Pedal Monitoring

    OK, I know Steve just recently posted about this same code, but my symptoms are different, so I want to put my situation out there and solicit your opinions. I had occasionally had glow plug light flash when I had been idling for a while but if I shut the car off and back on, it would go...

    Emergency, I think, need help

    I am replacing the valve cover gasket. I was going to put on the underside grommets and dropped one down by the #8 head bolt. I could see it and tried to pick it up, but I instead pushed it under the camshaft. How screwed am I? I can't see it anymore. Any chance a good vacuum could suck it...

    Geocaching in Grafton State Park

    I have picked out a few geocaches I could take people out to, located in Grafton State Park, a really nice drive, during any free-time Saturday or Sunday. I will leave it up to whoever decides to go on if we take a easy one, medium one, or more difficult (strenuous hike) one. I will have my...

    VW letter on some emissions software upgrade?

    We got a letter in the mail from VW saying they have to make some kind of software upgrade to the ECM for 2010-2014 model years. This letter also says if you've been chipped, they will have to return it to stock at your expense first. I don't know what will happen if we just ignore it, but I...

    Metal shavings found in skid plate

    When I started the car yesterday, I heard a little bit of belt squeal, but it only lasted a few seconds, so I did not think much of it. I didn't hear any unusual noises on the way home. But, when I put it up on ramps to check my continuing coolant leak (still leaking a little from somewhere...

    Coolant O-ring part number

    Does anyone know the part number for the O-ring for the piece that mates the lower radiator hose to the radiator on a B4? IDParts couldn't figure it out. Maybe I have to replace the whole adapter? Because that's whats leaking. Or does it not even come separate, and I have to replace the whole...

    faulty lift jack provided by VW

    :eek: All I can say is don't ever use it. Throw it away and buy something safer. I can't believe there hasn't been a safety recall on these things. There is a reason people refer to this as a widow maker. I knew about that but hadn't actually gotten around to buying something else, and...

    Ribbed belt/pulley question

    I have perhaps a stupid question, but I don't know about this part of my car very well. I recently had the steering act up, (briefly hard steering), so I check the fluid, its OK, no leaks, so I looked to make sure the pulley was turning when the car is running. It was, but while I was in there...

    2004 TDI, contemplating

    Driving home today, I saw a white Jetta TDI, 2004, for sale outside someone's house. No one was home, so I just took the number. It appears pretty good, just a little rust in a couple of small spots, tires probably need replacement, appears to only have 140K. I'm thinking of looking a little...

    turbo inlet

    :(This morning on the way to work I noticed an odd new sound, hard to describe, kind of like fluttering, but louder. I pulled over and with the car running I noticed the intake pipe was flopping around. With the car off I checked further and it appears the flange that holds the pipe to the...
