    Clutch Contaminated w/ Gear Oil- Any Hope?

    2006 TDI BRM Charge Pressor Question?

    Leaking egr coolers on brms leak exhaust pressure. You fixed the leak with the new egr cooler. That caused higher exhaust pressure turning the turbo resulting in more boost.

    B5.5 Serpentine tensioner

    Yep. Totally agree. I bought a Cherry condition White Special Edition 06 BRM for 500.00 after the alt pulley bearing/clutch failed and the serp wrapped around the crank sprocket and toasted the tb and head.

    The Saga Continues - Engine Oil Drained Completely within 4 miles with No Effect on Performance

    I agree Jmodge.... I know its a bunch more work Benjamis....but I'd replace the bearing (s). The spec is surely around 1.5 to 2 thousands or so....dont take my word for that exact spec but its around its way out of spec....and your oil pressure is going to be low with .013 clearance...

    Is my mechanic bullshitting me?

    Sounds like there was valve to piston contact and a valve got bent then broke. High probability of mistakes made.

    B5.5 Serpentine tensioner

    Well, it kinda depends....normally i just check them....make sure the bearing is rattles or play in anything....and replace ones that are beginning to wear out. But when im rebuilding a motor i go new. The INA one is only 70 bucks or so. A serp belt failure can cause a motor to jump...

    Im sure I have just cut and capped the yellow wire to stop parasitic battery drain on mk5 cars and others. The red wire needs to be connected to switched power. The car may cut off the power to the red wire after you cut the yellow. The yellow wire draw may be keeping the car awake.
