Try miks tdi in Lake Villa. He gets good reviews from people here. Hes also a member.
BTW not to call you out but cross posting is frowned upon here. Others here wouldn't have been as civilized.

What do you need done to your 1983 Quantum TD? Lots of places can do lots of things.

I think I need the injection pump messed with? Or a vacuum leak found...

It will start and run but then will die.

Well if it's a 1982 you should really replace all the vacuum lines anyway, I'd say. Our 2000 NB is on the verge of needing that done already.

As far as the IP, you're best off sending it to a shop what does proper work on them. There's a Bosch-certified shop up near Portage that can repair them.

But it sounds like what you really need is some proper diagnosis.

I can vouch for both of these guys they are great and know these cars inside out. Which ever one you chose you will make you TDI run for a long time and and the lowest cost out there. Just make sure you give them call ahead because they are busy (like 6 cars) waiting for work.

Hey guys and gals! I am terribly sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I am a master VW and Master Guild Audi Tech based in ROCKFORD, IL. I am currently an Audi tech but I do VW work at home, I am a TDI nut and own two, as well as a 69 type 3 squareback. It was suggested to me by Aaron at Boraparts to let people know to contact me for quality honest work near the Chicagoland area. If I can't do it at home I will tell you up front. My labor rates are $50 per hour, I go off of Chilton/Mitchell labor times. Please pm me or text me at (815) 519 1674 for service. Please indicate your name, and mention TDI CLUB when texting. Thanks, and happy motoring!

I had a fantastic experience with Lemont Truck Center! They offer exceptional service and the staff is both friendly and highly skilled. I took my truck in for some repairs and they had everything sorted out quickly and efficiently. Their location at 13751 Main St., Lemont, IL, is super convenient. You can also find more information on their website at lemonttruckcenter.com. If you need reliable truck services, don’t hesitate to call them at +1 708-526-2121. I highly recommend them!

Glad you had a good experience, but this doesn't look like a shop that works on VW TDIs, which is what these Forums are all about...
