    Manual transmission fluid

    I'll have a look. Thanks for the suggestion. I have to say, that in the winter, when the transmission is cold, it's a bit of a pain to get in to 2nd gear and it will grind from time to time when engaging that gear. A buddy of mine said he could get MTL for 12$CDN/L or something like that.

    jump start (boost) question

    w00t! Buddy of mine came over, boosted it and it started. Now, I'll let it idle for 30-45 min. I'll go for a little ride after that. He lent me a car battery charger. I'll let it charge @ 2Amp overnight.

    jump start (boost) question

    I did add some PS to the tank and filled up tuesday before the cold wave. Usually I put Sunoco Gold, but I was squeezed in time and put some Ultramar.

    Feeler: How much could I get 2003 Golf TDI 62K

    Hi, My bro wants to buy my car. I was tempted to sell it since I don't use it "enough". I also started to work less than 5Km from my house. Therefor, I either walk or take the car on rainy days. I feel guilty taking it for such small drives. On cold morning, it barely gets to operating...

    timing belt replacement

    I do not want to thread jack, but I have question reguarding timming belt change. My car is a 2003 and only has 47000Km. Rubber can crack/degrade after time especially if expose to hot and cold. Would it be recommended to change the TB before the actual millage requirement?

    Qué? C'est pas mal lisible... Mais, la seule chose que je ne peux pas déchiffrer c'est si c'est à gazole ou bonne vieille gazoline.

    Need tire suggestions

    I've learned long ago that year round tires aren't working here. Its not about the actual thread but the rubber. Things get cold here and a tire that would be soft enough to be safe of dry extreme cold wouldn't last long in the summer. Therefor, I have separate winter tires on rims and summer/4...
