      I start my car, turn the heat all the way down...

      Twice for me.

      First time I was in high school in an Eagle Premiere. Small electrical fire by the battery. I drove half across town looking out the windows for a fire before I realized it was my...

      It's actually the residual screw or residual fuel screw that you should be looking for. But only if your car has the fast idle feature.

      I took an auto b4 vr6 and put in a TDI 5 speed. I didn't use any diesel subframe parts. I might have used the lower rad support one, but I can't remember for sure. I kind if doubt it though.

      You may have put the throttle levers on the wrong shaft spline by one.

      The other thing you can try is backing out the residual screw. It's the one that the throttle arm rests against at idle. I'm...

      Yes I did remember to remove the inner race. I put the axle nut on with my gun while it was up in the air and got it to around 150-170 then did the final torque on the ground.

      I used a 20 ton hydraulic press.

      To press the hub in I placed it face down on the press, placed the knuckle with the bearing installed on top of it, then used a rod that only pushed on the inner...
    10. Failed front wheel bearing install

      I just replaced the front wheel bearing on my VR6 and it still has as much play as it did before I replaced it (1/4" or so). I can clearly see that the play is coming from the bearing area. It's a...

      Excellent, thank you everyone.

      I have a 4S transmission from a 86 TD Jetta that I am planning on using. I wish I could just drop a 02A in it but I know that's way more work than I want to do.

      FS resealed 1.6TD pump

      I just finished resealing this pump and I tested it on my 86 Jetta TD. I set it up as close to stock as I could. I might be a little low on the fueling, but that's because I like no smoke. It's easy...
