    Truly impressive clutch failure

    Wonder why it wouldn't disengage quite right?? :eek: Novice manual trans driver + downtown Seattle hills x 155 ft-lb of TDI torque = a *lot* of heat... I have seen some good and burned clutches before, but this is the first time I've had one come out in pieces. :rolleyes: Most...

    FS 2002 Jetta TDI Wagon -- Indigo Blue -- Seattle WA

    Longtime customer's car. 01M finally let go and he couldn't afford to fix it. We replaced the tranny and IP which had begun to leak (not resealed -- fully rebuilt by DFIS in Portland and done right) and went fully through the rest of the car to ensure it was all up to snuff. Fresh fluids and...

    AHU: gray smoke, high oil consumption, vacuum in the crankcase. Ideas?

    Working on a 1997 Jetta that has become a problem child. It first came to us several months ago after going through 4 other shops that couldn't put it right. The major issue at that time was that it barely ran. The owner had been told it needed a new engine. We checked timing and discovered it...

    FS 2001 Jetta 5spd, 74k, exceptional, Seattle

    An extremely nice 2001 Jetta came into my shop a couple weeks ago. It was one of the cleanest and best-kept ones I had ever seen and had only 74k on it, but was due (overdue actually) for a timing belt, the VNT mechanism was jammed with excessive carbon, and the owners had already bought a new...

    Torsion value after a BEW TB change

    Changed the timing belt on an '04 Jetta yesterday. Did it as Bentley suggested, turning the cam sprocket fully counterclockwise while installing the belt then cinching down the sprocket-to-hub bolts in the position that left it in. It ended up with the bolt heads sitting fairly far to the right...

    1982 Volvo 240 Diesel wagon, rebuilt, Seattle

    I've reached overload on Volvo Diesels and need to reduce the fleet a bit. I had planned to keep this 240 for many years, since it is ready to do another 100,000 miles without needing so much as a handful of oil changes. However, the plan has changed and the 240 is not part of it, so it's time...

    B4 pass power window non-functional, sudden failure. Can the "control module" fail?

    B4 pass power window non-functional, sudden failure. Can the "control module" fail? I'm working on a 1996 Passat TDI wagon. The passenger window will not go down or respond to any commands at all from either window switch, or from the central locking system. Prior to complete failure, it had...

    Electrical problems: turn signals/flasher relay? (non-Passat B5 platform car)

    I know this question is not about a B5.5 TDI, but this forum is where the best brains are so I thought I might ask here first... also this car is the same on the inside as a Passat so it's not that far off. I am trying to help a family member with an odd electrical problem on his 2001 Audi...

    Volvo D24T (same as VW LT engine): one cylinder missing off idle

    I've got an irritating little miss in my Volvo TD's engine that has pretty odd symptoms. I have had no luck solving it yet so thought I might get some other opinions. The engine is a six-cylinder VW turbodiesel, for all intents and purposes identical internally to a 1.6L VW TD in a Jetta etc...
