I've been looking for another Golf TDI for about a year .... not really certain what I want, but just browsing off and on.
I've finally decided. What I want is an Imola Yellow 20th Anniversary GTI with a modified TDI engine. It has to be at least 8/10 or 9/10 both interior and exterior.
Top five fuel-saving technologies:
#5: Multistage oil pump, 1% fuel savings. Only pumps as much oil as the engine needs
#4: Continuously-variable transmissions and dual-clutch transmissions, 6-7% fuel savings.
#3: Active cylinder management, about 7.5% improvement in miles per gallon.
Does your TDI feel tired and sluggish? Is it hard to wake up in the morning? Does it smoke a bit on takeoff from stop lights? Is it burning more fuel than it used to.
My Golf TDI had all these symptoms, but they developed so slowly that I hardly noticed. Then, when I was having another problem...
I have looked at other threads and none seemed to suggest a solution to my problem.
Lately my Golf has been experiencing what first seemed like "vagueness" with the steering. Pushing down on the accelerator causes the front end to move slightly to the left; lifting off the accelerator moves it...

Report finds shortcomings in present technology but cause for long-term optimism
A couple months ago I had to replace the manual transmission, after a catastrophic differential failure. A local shop had a spare transmission case, assembled all the right gears, and the rebuilt transmission works great and shifts better than the old one.
At the same time, I had to replace the...

Will Truckers Ditch Diesel?
Surplus of Natural Gas Prompts Some Fleets to Switch; Lack of Fueling Stations
By REBECCA SMITH
Rising diesel costs last year forced Waste Management Inc. to charge customers an extra $169 million, just to keep its garbage trucks fueled. This year, the nation's...
I'm wondering if I'll soon need to replace my starter, or if the problem lies elsewhere.
Sometimes, 20-30% of the time, when I turn the key, there is a hesitation before the starter begins to turn over. It is as if there is a power drain somewhere, and it takes a while before there's enough...
I would like to make a change in the near future, as it is just too hard to get a smooth engagement off the line with my current G60/VR6 clutch and flywheel combo. This is the one I'm looking at, but I am willing to consider less-costly alternatives...
