      Thanks everybody for the input! I've noticed that some 16v's have the electric solenoid valve and some are just a manual vacuum valve. I originally did have the vapor hose connected to the air intake...

      Any idea what you are going to do with that fuel tank vapor hose that connects to the big black rubber intake boot (just above the air box)?

      Sorry buddy i don't know what else to tell you. Either the o2 sensor is giving incorrect readings because of it not being the correct 3 wire sensor or its just faulty or your DRPR is bad. Possibly...

      Hmm i can't really tell anything by that lower picture. If the little arrow on the plastic timing belt cover lines up with the mark on the crank pulley then everything should be good.

      Yeah sorry man. It can be a bummer trying to figure stuff out but you'll get there. All i can do is ask questions haha. I really suspect something funny with that O2 sensor you have. If the engine...

      You said your coolant temp never went over 150?...

      You said your coolant temp never went over 150? That is pretty dang low. Get your engine temp up in the 200's. 220 is about as far as i'd push it. i run a 190 thermostat. Engine temp makes a huge...

    15. 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.
