    Anybody know why the price of diesel seems so high these days?

    Diesel at esso in Georgetown is .92 a litre. They also have a 3 cent discount over 100L. Tempted to fill a barrel or 2, surely it will hit 1.25 again this winter.

    Headlight compatability

    Found a set of really clean lenses at a local to me wrecker recently, forgot some of my tools to pull them, so left them there. They were on I believe a 99 Cabrio. They appear the same shape as golf headlights, anyone know if they are wired internally the same?

    Mechanical tdi

    What would one have to do to eliminate the electronic parts on an alh engine? Or rather, how old a vw diesel would I have to get to have an electric free engine? Dad was given a really nice, larger boat this summer, and after reading the specs learned that the ~300 HP engine consumes 18 gallons...

    So, it finally happened to me

    Long drive from Manitoulin through Sudbury to Sprucedale and home to Grand Valley. Stopped in North Bay on the reservation for cheap fuel, and I was surprised when I got out of the car there was an attendant ready to fuel up the old bomb. I was only topping up the tank, had about 375km on it...

    Relay 109/ Glow plug relay P1619

    So, am trying to get my Dad's car in shape to certify and I have to admit, wiring is my weakest link. He had hooked up a manual toggle switch for his glow plugs, as it wouldn't stay on long enough to start his car up in Sudbury. Now, in order to pass emissions and safety, has to be code free...

    How do you change a jetta into a Camp/Cottage? Necro post gone awry

    Just wanted to post a small tribute to our friend Adam who we all know as Windex, who has affected so many people in a positive way, he is much like my Dad whom I admire greatly. I came across an old thread about the slow crank problems the 99.5 mkiv's were so famous for, and thought, heck I'll...

    Thanks Narfblast

    Read an old post that saved me a huge headache today. Got the golf I'm selling to a shop for the safety. At the end of the day the buyer was supposed to pick up the safety paperwork and we'd be done. I get a call saying the middle rear seat belt won't release, so he can't pass the car...
