      I'm in SLC, UT. Sorry i should have said where i live.
    2. WTB: Rear axle beam (for MK2 Jetta). SLC

      I was told that the 1990 Jetta 1.6L Diesel has a more heavy duty rear axle beam however, I still want to use disc brake like the Mk2 GTI's and GLI's.

      Thats great! Smell your oil and see if it smells like gas because some might have leaked into the oil and that will break down the oil and then the engine will start to burn oil.

      Sounds like a fueling issue. Your compression seems fine!

      That's interesting! I wouldn't think gas would go bad that quickly also. What octane are you buying? They dump all of that ethanol crap into our gas now (especially the low grade fuels) so that is...

      I don't think that its possible to install the dis cap wrong but i could be wrong.

      The cam might spin in differ direction than what you think so this is why i keep bringing up timing. Its got to...

      So when cylinder #1 is at TDC then is the distributor ROTOR over the top of cylinder#1 spark plug wire?

      You have the bentley manual right?

      unscrew the plastic plug on the trans bell housing to...

      when you check for spark are you just checking 1 spark plug? have you checked all spark plugs to see if they are sparking?

      It seems to me that the fuel system is definitely doing its job. I'm...

      You could have a vacuum leak on one of the two intake manifold gaskets but i highly doubt that would happen unless the manifold have been removed before or if somebody loosened the bolts and didn't...
    11. Could very well be that. How are your spark...

      Could very well be that. How are your spark wires? you ohm them also? The engine will still start even if the cold start valve is not working. The cold start valve helps with starting at really cold...

      Have you checked to see if the Fuel pump relay supplies power to the fuel pump while cranking? unplug the fuel pump and test with a meter while somebody else is cranking.

      There has to be a way of...

      I also messed around with my DFPR and i questioned if it was bad but i'm telling you the truth (The engine should still run even if the DFPR is not working or unplugged). The CIS-E fuel systems are...
    14. Good idea to check over all the timing stuff....

      Good idea to check over all the timing stuff. Also did you notice that there are 4 distributor mounting holes, so that means the distributor could go on two different ways. Are you sure that you...
    15. Correct! Have you tried un-connecting /connecting...

      Correct! Have you tried un-connecting /connecting the knock box? maybe its got a bad connection on one of the pins from corrosion. If you have the bentley manual then it tells you some test you can...
    16. I went down the same road as you thinking that it...

      I went down the same road as you thinking that it was fuel issues but it was not the problem. I'd check to make sure you have no vacuum leaks (torn/cracked intake boots) but everything else should be...
    17. The engine will not run if the knock box is...

      The engine will not run if the knock box is faulty. All of the wiring for the hall sensor connects to it. I suppose the oil could have ruined the hall sensor but my hall sensor was completely soaked...

      You are probably getting spark but its off time. Did you mark where the old distributor was and are you sure all spark wires are connected to the correct places. Double check this stuff if you are...
    19. Yeah wait a minute. Don't buy a new distributor...

      Yeah wait a minute. Don't buy a new distributor yet. The guy that mentioned the ignition switch was great advice. If you do decide to buy a new switch then don't install it until you have tested to...
    20. Looking into getting my AC System working again!

      Well i'd like to get my AC system working again but I was wondering if anybody has uses their own custom ac hoses in their application? My AC hoses seem pretty beat up and i was thinking it might be...
