      I've had bad inner CV joints cause similar symptoms. If you are saying you can see the engine and trans rock back and forth though, you're mounts are most likely bad.

      Does the CEL come on with the ignition on? If not, then the ECU could be bad.

      By throwing more parts at it, you're going to have to diagnose it all over again. If the distributor was replaced,...

      I'd replace it. They are removable and just thread into the head. Most of the time, a couple come out from the nuts/threads being rusted and unthread from the head instead of turning the nut off the...

      You'd need two cables (same on both sides) and guide tubes for each side. The guide tubes are not the same for both sides and you need 1 left and 1 right.

      They tried to make me pay for what they did, but then backed out and let me go free cause they knew they effed it up. You do have to crank it to check compression, unless they did a leak down test....

      Do you have spark out of 3 and 4 from the coilpack? If not, it could just be a bad coil, the connector at the coil isn't making good contact, bad wires, or wrong firing order. There should be tests...

      If you're talking about an A3 platform, as in the cars that make up this Mk3 forum, and live in the U.S., it would be entirely illegal to swap a Mk3 TDI into a Mk4 based on federal law. Can't swap an...

      It's normal as long as the cluster still works with a new or charged battery. They'll twitch like that or stay stuck at whatever it was reading if you kill the battery power when driving. They'll...

      Some shops in PA are crazy and will fail you for a missing drain plug on the floor pan...even though the law states exhaust fumes have to pass through for it to fail.

      You're lucky. Same thing happened to me almost 15 years ago. I caught it right when it happened cause I could smell the belt melting. It was my first car and at the time I didn't have the tools to...

      Well if the ECU is actually fried, it could be due to a bad coil. I fried one like that and the CEL was dead, so it would be good to check the coil over for cracks before trying another ECU. A hall...

      Sounds like bad inner CV joints if it's going away when pushing the clutch in and changes around turns and over bumps. Some other possibilities could be rear wheel bearings, throwout bearing, or just...

      If the bulb is good, ECU could be dead if CEL is not lighting up with ignition on. You can try the relay, but don't be surprised if there isn't one there cause not all of them had it. My OBD1 didn't.

      Patching floor pans and installing new rockers on two Jettas to pass inspection. Might end up scrapping the Golf Sport cause it's been sitting for years, just a rolling shell, and pretty rotted, but...

      Assuming you are just talking about the lights controlled by the dimmer, the bulbs may not be making good contact or are burnt out. It's pretty common. Either replace the bulbs or try bending the...

      I'd check basics like stated and agree it could be a bad crank sensor. Typically when they are bad they will cause you to stall out, but will start back up after sitting for a bit. Can check...

      The red sled was local to me but I haven't seen it in years. Don't recall him selling it, so it's probably sitting in a garage or warehouse somewhere. This was kind of popular and had different...
