    Temperature/Resistance characterization for OTS?

    Does anyone have a temp/resistance curve for the Outside Temperature sensor? (8Z0 820 535) My FIS started showing -49 degF today and as i was outside in a Tshirt, I think it's wrong! :^) I measured about 1k ohms at room temp, and about 500 ohms in a cup of hot water from the tap. All other...

    Elf Evolution after 16,300 miles - not so good.

    http://pics.tdiclub.com/data/500/C87657.pdf Iron, Lead, Nickel and Silicon are high. Most everything else, including TBN are OK. Some of you may know that this engine swallowed a lifter at 70k. The head was replaced with a head which purportedly came from a 98 beetle. I don't know the...

    Oil Analysis: Evolution CRV at 15k miles

    In my 2001 Jetta, from vehicle mileage 101,000 to 116,000 (ish.) I checked my air filter, and it is old, but I didn't see any obvious holes. I'm ordering a new one tonight. Seems a little odd that the oil filter would be tired at 15k. I was using Napa filter, as I was in the previous sample...

    Get any mods for the Holidays?

    What mods did you get during the holidays? It's not really a mod, but I got a nice temperature-controlled soldering station from Mrs Dawg. Now I don't have to fight with the Rat Shack soldering pen I've had for the past few years. I do a fair amount of soldering on my projects for the VW and...

    Excellent TB service from the Lube Specialist!

    I'm probably preaching to the midwest choir here, but I just wanted to compliment Greg for doing a great job on my 2001 Jetta last night. I brought it to him after work, and I sat in his garage and "shot the bull" while he did all the work. Although he threatened me with a $200 fee for...

    Pimentel Bashing in Louisville Courier-Journal.

    OK, not really bashing... refuting? OK. Refuting. The Louisville Courier Journal had a couple of articles recently on fuels from biomass, most notably ethanol and biodiesel. There were some replies to that article on July 11. I wrote them to reply to those replies... In the mean time...

    Proposal: Handicapping Rules for Monthly MPG Comp.

    I've created this thread so we don't hijack the monthly competition with this discussion! (anymore) So, here's my proposal: Establishing a "handicap" for the monthly mpg competition allows for an "even playing field" for everyone in the competition, regardless of vehicle type, transmission...

    A/C High Pressure Cut-off Switch

    Does anyone know at what pressure the high-side cutoff switch is supposed to cutoff? While recharging the AC on my car, we noticed the high and low side pressures "took off" very quickly. This would seem to indicate an overcharge, but we had only run in about 1 2/3 can... maybe 600 mg of...

    Premium B5 Diesel

    I posted earlier this week about switching to B5 from the local co-op. The place is in Madison, IN and has an unattended credit-card pump. The guy that was there when I stopped to talk to them said that they were getting a mix of Bio with their premium diesel from their distributor. The...

    Burning a bit 'o' the bean

    Burning a bit \'o\' the bean The local farm co-op is now offering B5... for roughly the same price as straight petro-diesel. The guy who I talked to when I stopped by said that the Cetane was running 54 (just slightly higher than their petro) I am a little dubious of that number, but the fact...

    Gellin' like a felon (and questions about fuel)
