    Torque Converter #?

    Two questions for the gurus: #1, on a 2002 Jetta, is the TC different between a gas model and a diesel model, and 2) can anyone give me the part number for it? I'm having "issues" and I want to make sure the shop put the right thing in. If they did, it sounds like there me be a...

    load leveler/air shocks?

    Has anyone ever installed load levelers or air shocks on a MK IV Jetta? I've been researching it online, can't even seem to find a manufacturer for this car, wondering if someone found something else close enough to bolt in maybe? It sure would be better when towing a trailer. Any ideas /...

    Temperature light stays on when cold out?

    I imagine this has been covered, I just haven't found it in a search.

Mine stayed on for about 3 minutes, but hers stayed on the entire 50 minute drive home. I'm sure...

    Cold Air Intake with K&N type filter

    Hey guys, saw this CAI CAI I've read many times here not to use a K&N as it can damage the MAF with the oil, but was thinking that this intake places the filter much farther away then the stock setup. Do you guys think it would still be an issue for the greater distance that the oil from the...

    Hey look! VW didn't screw up the Golf GT!

    Hey look! VW didn\'t screw up the Golf GT! Gotta admit, my wife and I both hated it on first look. Looks like an oversized Sprint if you ask me, or an oversizrd go-cart if you ask her. Why can't VW just stay with their proven German (Or European) looks instead of trying to be a Japanese car...
