    Buying a high mileage TDI

    After nearly giving up the hope, my wife finally got pregnant the natural way after several unsuccessful IVF-treatments, and we got a son that is now 4 months old. Therefore our Lupo has become way to small for us, and I have begun looking for a bigger car, which must be a TDI (or some other...

    Trouble shooting procedure instrument cluster

    My instrument cluster has gone haywire. Pre history: I had to loosen the dashboard to change my heater to one with A/C. Therefore I also removed the instrument cluster and the steering wheel. I am sure that at least the steering wheel was removed while the battery was disconnected. I also...

    I was cruising fast at 3000 rpm, and eased of the gas. When I pushed the pedal again, the car had nearly no power. No lights went on, and there was no lack of water or oil. The engine didn't have any strange noises and could be started without problems, it just doesn't rev to more than 1500...

    No turbo boost on 1,6 TD

    The injector pump gave up on my otherwise very fine running Golf 1,6 TD, so I installed my other engine, which has only run 20000 miles since it got an overhauled shortblock and new head and overhauled injectors. I took the turbo from the engine with the bad pump, because I destroyed the...
