    Towing Capacity

    Hey all. Just a question about towing. I have a 2003 Jetta TDI Sedan, the manual says 1000lb Max towing. I've done some reading and it seems like fellow TDI owners tow more than that. My question is what's the likelihood of towing a 1900lb small fibreglass camping trailer with my car? Doable or...

    Let's play name that engine part and help me identify my coolant leak!

    Is that a BEW?? Looks like you made it 8 months! I have an ALH, had a coolant leak a few falls ago. It was the coolant flange O-Ring. I would just replace any O-rings in general area while coolant is drained. For myself did the coolant flange ring to head, ring between that and glow plug...

    Time For Some Maintenance

    Yes that’s exactly what happened when they did it there was a stripped bolt they had to deal with. I was apprehensive to do it myself as I don’t know if it’s ever been off, at least since I’ve had it so 10 years and 200,000+ Km. It's quite possible it's never been off so 415,000km so I had no...

    Time For Some Maintenance

    Hey so a mini update. The intake is cleaned and MAF replaced. The intake was super filthy and clogged. It's all clean now including EGR etc. Man what a difference! Just power wise and runs smooth and more peppy. I used to get intermittent limp mode I'm excited to see if this solves that or...

    Time For Some Maintenance

    Hey sorry just to follow up, my comment isn't completely fair about oil in the intercooler at oil changes. I used to drive a lot more and would change the oil 3 times a year at 16,000km and would pull maybe 1/4 cup out each change give or take. Last few years I don't come close to the 16,000km...

    Time For Some Maintenance

    Hi all. So I have a 2003 ALH TDI Jetta. I have had it for 11 years or so. Obviously done things in the past. It's a bit of a high miler but not crazy about 415,000km (258,00mi or so). Any insight into what maintenance I should look at doing ? As I plan to try and keep the car for a while now. I...
