      First of all, "pedal".

      I have no idea how VW adjusts the rear drums on these cars. The cable adjustment under the center console is only for the hand brake. You need to find a manual. I hate...

      If the engine is cranking slower, then yes, the battery. Don't know what's up with the radio.

      I used the top fill method which is less complicated, but you should be able to do it this way.

      Temp is very important. The volume of the oil will vary based on its temperature. You will add oil...

      LOL. You know, its not uncommon for big name tire makers to sell off their old molds. You may have a hand-me-down Michelin on your car with a different name. Just an older tread design or...

      Vogue tires are made by Uniroyal which is owned by Michelin. I don't know what that means. Maybe they are Tiger Paws. Chances are they are made in North America. Look at the DOT code on the tire...

      Rough spot to be in. In running condition, the car is probably worth $10-12K. In not-running condition, maybe half that. I'd bit the bullet and fix it. At least you'd have a good car in known...

      Timing belt service has value. Did it include the tensioner, idler pulleys and water pump? If not, the value goes down. Cam follower not so much of a bargain. It's good that he did it, but since...

      Thank you. Best bit of knowledge I've seen shared in a long time. The engine is engineered as a unit. The sum of the parts. You can't change one or two without effecting the rest.

      No, that's a pretty average pic of a failed valve from heat. I don't know why they break that way, but they do.

      Or not. The battery can read 12v and power everything else in the car, but if its weak, the voltage will drop as soon as you hit the starter, there won't be enough current to turn the starter, and...

      I'm not a big fan of oil additives, but this stuff looks like a good zinc substitute. I also like the fuel additive. I'm tired of ethanol destroying everything.

      I've punched holes in exhaust valves on several older cars (with carbs). I believe the problem to be unrelated to carbon buildup. Sucks.

      Send the guys at ECS a note. (www.ecstuning.com). The rear breather tube has a check valve in it and its open point matches up with whatever the PCV valve is doing. They need to match.
