    2016 Speedometer Correction VCDS

    Hello, had an owner in today. He has installed larger diameter tires on his 2016 Touareg and the speedo is reading slower than actual verified with GPS. Using VCDS and you tube, we had no success using long coding or adaption in the instruments section of the software. No obvious solution in the...

    How to identify pump sprocket bolts

    Hello, I don't normally work on TDI's and when I did my timing belt on my ALH I replaced the pump bolts that can be reused. We have an ALH 1.9 that is new to us getting the head replaced. The owner has no idea if the pump bolts have been updated. Unfortunately, it's been so long I can't...

    1Z -AHU vs ALH or later

    Hello, I have an 82 vanagon 2wd camper with an ALH conversion. Very satisfied with the results. One thing I learned was that the earlier 1Z or AHU was an easier swap because some of the original diesel parts, oil pan, mounts to a degree etc could be reused instead of fabricated from scratch...

    The good, bad, and the ugly

    My wife took her 2011 JSW to the dealer for its 10K service. They even washed the car. They also replaced the r/f dust cap for free. The original disappeared and we were willing to replace it. Figured someone had grabbed it and was wearing it as a medalion now. The dealer replaced it and stated...

    Injector Fuel Line Threads?

    Hello, I was going to make a slide hammer adapter for removing my injectors from my ALH engine. My question, are the fuel line thread diameter and pitch the same as the diesel injectors from an NA 1.6? I found a thread that states the threads of the later injector are 14mm x 1.5 pitch. That...
