I was listening to the local news on the radio during the drive in the other day. There was a 30-sec blurb about the use of WVO (pros/cons/etc). Listening to it, most of it was something like "yeah, you can do it, but you need to be careful" or sumsuch. But the last 5 seconds a statement was...
From the Washington Post 7/13/06:
Venezuela-owned Citgo Petroleum has decided to stop distributing gasoline to some 1,800 independently owned stations in the United States after calls by President Hugo Chávez to discontinue contracts that benefit U.S. consumers more than Venezuelans. The Citgo...
For anyone interested, I was poking through Lindsay VW's lot yesterday and spotted a '06 Jetta TDI manual in Ocean blue and tan interior. Couldn't read the sticker clearly (it was dark and it was lying sideways on the back seat) but the price was something like $22K.

Start your own thread.
If you have an '02, you dont actually need to change it until 80Kmiles (manual) because the engine was upgraded in that year. However, I don't think the maintenance manuals were upgraded to show this. So you would...
Yes, I should have known better.
So, my AC quits putting out cold air while driving down the road last week. So I take it to a local dealer to get this and some other recall-type things off the list. The service writer calls me and says:
1. the reason the drivers door won't reliably open is...
Anybody notice Daryl Hannah on Conan O'Brian Tuesday night?
Apparently she's into recycled veggie oil. She has an '83 El Camino with a diesel burning grease from the local fastfood places.
She also has a solar house and is off the grid, paid for itself and is making money back selling power.
And you thought the 505.01 spec was bad!

At least 27 Honda CR-V sport-utility vehicles from the 2003 and 2004 model years burst into flames shortly after getting...
While on a road trip over the weekend, I noticed that the cruise would not hold speed going up hills. 'Hmmm' I thought.
2001 Jetta 5-speed. 22k miles.
> changed air filter and fuel filter last weekend. I was also messing around in the area of the EGR and antishudder valves...
the idle should be around 900-950RPM. The only time it is above that is when it is cold and the ECU ups the speed to let it run a little better.

er...you don't attach the intake to the sump. You attach the outlet to the sump, or a suitable tapped hole in the valve cover. You attach the intake to a suitable pressurized source, like the oil pressure transducer port using a tap (T-connector).
Lots of folks around here have done it with...

Re: Glowing doesn\'t work, desperate!
The coolant temp sensor is color-coded. You have to get a replacement of the same color, even though the part numbers are the same.
There is still a 'short' here. The system is acting correctly when you unplug the sensor. Therefore there must be a short...
I've never seen these before, but I discussed the posibility of building such a device with a friend of mine. He developed a prototype to be used on boats, monitoring them for high water alarms and movement away from the dock. He had one in his wife's car so he could test his tracking and...
