Looking to buy a GPS, what do you guys recommend. I'm seeking to spend 50-100 (new or used). I see quite a few units on kijiji, but have never purchased one before. So i don't know the pros and cons with certain units.
I missed the last sale at CTC. They had ones for 100 with lifetime maps and...
I'm looking for GM Sychromesh or Penzoil, maybe Amsoil for the gear lube on my tranny. I've tried MTL, liked it. Mixed it with Mt90, not bad. Now i'd like to try and lower vis oil. Anyone know of a place locally i can get a deal on 2L of this stuff?
Since i've replaced the head gasket on my mk3 tdi. I've driven roughly 2500km. I have noticed a slight external seepage between cyl 3/4. It is losing coolant, roughtly around 10 to 20 ml per day.
I replaced the stretch bolts with new ones and torqued to spec with a calibrated wrench.
I'm loosing boost through my egr weep hole. There seems to be more oil pouring out of there these days. Is it a bad idea to seal that hole up with high temp silicone?. Why is that weep hole needed?.
I've used Carquest part # 21405. After a year it's oil soaked and heat bulged. Any good sources on a better generic, thicker rubber hose?. Maybe someone locally has silicone ones, similiar to the tubing you get when you purchase cold air intakes.....
Would a leaky vac pump that is covered in oil affect the following:
loss of brake pressure
lower turbo boost
slightly lower fuel economy
I've noticed a leak for a while on my tdi. I'm going to take it apart and see how it seals and find out where exactly it is leaking from...
A short while ago i was driving/cruising doing 80kph. I felt a slip in the power band and started hearing lifter clatter. I pulled over to the side of the road and checked my timing belt. It was slack, still in good condition. After getting the car towed home. I then inspected the tensioner...
I was working on my car and lost daylight. I had to remove the turbo pressure line from my turbo and didn't notice any oring or gasket coming off with the end of the line. The line came off via the union fitting. The flange was rusted to it. I prob didn't notice anything cause it's really tight...
I think i'm going to get stuck trying to find (1) 8mm exhaust valve. Is there any place that still sells them?. I have another thread in the Ontario section seeking some local that might have a spare.
What is the best way to remove the valve guides with home tools if i can't source another...
Hey guys, I've been reading that these valves are off the market, not sure if i'll be able to source a new one. I will have to talk to my parts vendor. So i decided to ask around to see if anyone has a spare 8mm exhaust valve kicking around that they want to sell. I will need it to be in...
Anyone around North York or GTA interested in loaning, renting, selling me this tool?
I've searched Parts Source, CTC, Princess, Sears, no luck. Next stop will be Napa, Carquest.
Please let me know, thanks.
Hi, back in Nova Scotia for a while. Decided to leave the I.T scene and try out music for a while. I'm currently in Digby and seeking a keyboardist/vocalist that is willing to come and jam in Digby. We have the rehearsal space and some old Tascam recording equipment, soon to be upgraded. We also...
Hi, i have limited time on the net these days to study stuff. So my question is:
Are the mk3 120amp alternators swappable with the mk4. I have the Bosch 120amp on the car with the clutch style pulley.
Hi guys, if anyone wants to rent or let me borrow the alt tool, please contact me via email or msg me on the club.
I have a diode issue with my current alt and would like to swap it out before i go for a long trip.
Thanks in advance
ps: if anyone has an old alternator that is either...
