      I think that by '85 VW was using a 10mm Triple Square socket head bolt. Pull the cylinder head cover and you will see what is needed. It's a splined bit. Usually sold in bit sets but sometimes...

      The engine code will be stamped on a machined plate on the block -- just below the block/cylinder head seam line and sort of behind the distributor. You may have to clean off some crud to see the...

      I'd for sure check the timing. It is easy enough to do. The JH engine was likely not hurt if it jumped time and jumping time is a common affliction on a neglected engine. Timing belts and idler...

      Just for clarification -- The AAZ is a Diesel engine. There is also a TDI/Diesel Engine Forum here at Vortex. The original posts in this thread refer to naturally aspirated gas engines. FR

      I think that a Digifant Head can be converted to CIS-E by changing the injector inserts. At least that is my recolletion. My 86 GTI (CIS-E) had air shrouded mechanical injectors and my 91 GTI...

      Check the O2 sensor heater element as mentioned above. Unplugging the temp sensor makes the ECU run in open loop mode. In closed loop operation the engine will heat the coolant and the ECU will go...

      Do the quick and inexpensive stuff first. I'd check the switches on the Throttle Body and assure the vacuum connection at the knock box then try to figure out what has been disconnected. ...

      I have actually had the 3500 RPM cut-out issue before. Problem is that it was such a long time ago (about 15-16 years) I can't recall what I did to fix it. I did a lot of fixing on that car over...

      Starting with assuring the vacuum system is a good idea. There are lots of places for vacuum leaks including the injector seals and the intake boot (look for leaks down in the creases). I'd also...
