    Low temp gauge and Luke warm heat.

    AC not working

    For the life of me, I can't get the search to work. Or I wouldn't be asking for help. Anyways, last year my ac had stopped working. It was basically the last hot day we had. So I figured I'd look into it later. Well long story short, it's time to fix it. The rad fans do not come on unless the...

    Turbo failure?

    Throwout bearing replacement

    Hey all. For the last few weeks I've had a grinding feeling in the clutch pedal. Only when the clutch is pressed. Tonight on my way home at a light, it started squealing. Similar to a slipping belt. It continued the squealing with every shift all the way home. The last mile or so it still had...

    Moderate boost, low power, no whistle

    I tried the search button, but it disappears before I can type. I got this car about a month ago. (2001 Jetta TDI) had zero boost when I got it. Changed all vacuum hoses with oem replacement hoses. That fixed the lack of boost. Then got over boost code. Adjusted the actuator and all was good...
