    Thermostat replacement?

    My search turned up no dedicated thread to this subject. Had a problem with the warm/cold cable coming loose (the lever the cable operates dropped down and disengaged from its whatchamacallit) which I fixed and everything seems hooked up properly except there is very little if any heat being...

    Balky Windshield Wipers - not fuse....

    Jake's wipers will not come on sometimes when I flip the switch. This can be very inconvenient not to mention unsafe. The problem has happened maybe a handful of times in the past year or so but only very briefly and the condition always self-corrected within a matter of seconds....until...

    Heat from vents when set to cool #*&&@^

    A small problem occured this AM on way to work so I've not had any time to investigate, but with temperature dial rotated all the way to left (full cool) and just blowing air (A/C not on), warm air is coming out the vents. No luck with a cursory search, but I take it a some sort of flap is...

    Come on, UNLOCK the -> "Whats with the HHO ignorance?" thread

    Don't (do not) lock that thread, please. It's a lame move. Yes a lame post to start, but if you do, how will the perpetrator, errr, original poster (and other hangers on), get the chance to report his newfound enlightenment? Seriously, I see absolutely nothing wrong with the thread --- as...

    ESP overactive after suspension upgrade

    The title of this thread was going to be "ESP sux w/ suspension upgrade", but I settled for "overactive" as that adequately describes my issue. Jake ('03 5 spd) was recently fitted up with Koni FSDs and Shine springs along with a rear sway bar. He also has a DG Panzer Plate that helps stiffen...

    Can a 2um CAT Filter Make For Hard Starts?

    Jake (2003 5spd, ~79K miles) is having an intermittent starting problem. At first, I was suspicious of the 4 yr old battery, but it checks out okay so my next supposition has been that the 2 micron CAT filter installed in May 2006 (~12K miles ago) might be involved somehow. There are no...

    Retail fuel costs above 5 cents/mile...

    ...for most TDI's anyway. A bargain seeing as most gassers must be paying closer to a dime per mile. I've only recently added this last column to my fuel data. 12.102g, $2.629/g, 576.2', 53462', 47.6mpg +PSW (5.5c/mile) 15.998g, $2.399/g, 800.2', 54262', 50.0mpg +PSW (4.8c/mile) 11.158g...

    Glowing Red Neon Brakes (not a new fad)

    REPOSTED/New thread sigh....just home from errands, wondering what was causing the shudder I was experiencing. I had suspicions of a fuel or air supply problem or maybe that my VASB was acting screwy. Imagine my surprise on seeing the glow of a RED, <font color="red">RED</font>, <font...

    Looking for an A4 Jetta GLS trunk liner/floor

    Excuse the cross-post/mis-post but not been getting any bites over in the parts forum. I need a replacement trunk liner (floor). --- why? I managed to dump ~3 gallons of B100 into Jake's trunk.....don't ask but the trunk liner/floorboard was fully loaded with bioD. Fortunately, most of the...

    WTB: A4 Jetta GLS trunk liner/floor

    Bio in the boot 3 gallons of B100 spilled onto/into the floor of Jake's trunk (oh, woe is me!). I don't know if I am more upset at the mess or the loss of all the clean bean juice. Dealer price on the "trunk liner" is $109 but I am guessing it is to be had for much less at a salvage yard or...
