      New CEL: Codes 16804 and 00934

      After getting the new SAI pump in, I was driving CEL-free for about 2 or 3 weeks until earlier this week when that dreaded amber light came on. The only performance issue I'm experiencing isn't with...

      Agreed!

      Got mine from 034 Motorsports when I got a system lean code soon after buying my Jetta. Popped the hood and discovered the factory hoses were practically non-existent.

      I took my Jetta to the dealership (the newly opened Long-Lewis VW in Florence) to finally have the recalled ignition coils replaced. When I went to pick up the car, it was taking the tech a while to...

      I used nylon string trimmer line to weld the broken halves of that plastic pin back together and then purchased the so-called "SPP Tip Mod" (it's a machined aluminum sleeve that attaches to the top...

      I thought about it but everything I read said it was more expensive to do the manual swap than to drop in another 09A.

      Also, I polished the turd over the weekend. :P...

      Just a quick update on things

      "New to the Car" (Used) Transmission
      The transmission is working fine 6 months later. However, my mechanic did NOT use the new stretch bolts that I purchased from ECS and provided. I probably should...

      Prices include shipping?

      I changed the oil on Sunday (the 6th) and it had a strong gas smell to it. I'm thinking bad injectors and/or FPR, so I'm interested in yours.

      Are these still for sale? I had a strong gas smell in my oil when I changed it this past Sunday and I wonder if it could be bad injectors. I figure at $15 for the set, it's cheaper than taking it to...

      Shoot. I didn't realize the transmission was held in with stretch bolts as well. But yeah, it was a normal shop. The specialist wanted $800 just to replace a seal and only then would he be able to...

      Can someone verify that the bolts in the photo below are replaced during a timing belt change?
      If so, I'll be giving my mechanic an earful for not using the new stretch bolts I supplied him to use...
    12. Did my mechanic reuse my old timing belt parts?

      I had my transmission replaced recently. While he had the car on the lift, I figured I'd have him replace the timing belt. I provided the belt, tensioner, pulley, water pump, coolant, and new stretch...

      "New" Transmission & Timing Belt

      Apparently, programming isn't required because not long after my last post, I got a call saying Gretta was ready to go. It seems to shift just fine. When I get a chance, I'll nose around under the...

      "New" Transmission

      Back in January, the transmission (09A) crapped out at around 136k miles. After towing it to my usual mechanic, he said he could fix it but didn't have the equipment to add the transmission fluid....

      Oops! You'll have to excuse my lack of know-how.

      What I meant was whether or not adding fluid through this port (see image - it's not mine) would fill the transmission or if I would have to fill...
    16. How do I...? - Complete Trans. Fluid Fill

      To do a complete fluid fill in a new transmission, can I go in through the port in the valve body?

      Gretta the German B!@#$ decided to call it quits on the drive to work one morning back in...

      I've got the same problem right now. I just replaced all 9 solenoids in November 2012, however. At first, I couldn't shift from 4th to 5th and on the drive to work one morning, I couldn't get out of...

      I'll take your word for it, as long as it's in good, working condition. :thumbup: Do those prices include shipping? If not, I'm in 35660.
