Check the temp sensor.
If it's your daily driver and/or your only car, leave it stock...chances are you need the factory reliability more than you need the extra horsepower. Too late for that though :)
My ABA bottom...
That post makes it sound more complicated than it is.
You could stick something down the hole and slowly turn the engine to approximate TDC, but then you could end up at TDC 180* out too. What I...
Yes definitely fix the breather tube and any other issues before modifying.
The best thing you could do is upgrade the cam, this would require a valve spring upgrade as well, and you'd need a chip...
Oh if you're talking about the long block, it most certainly will NOT work. You'd definitely, absolutely have to use the BBW head. I thought you were just swapping the block with rotating assembly....
I think they block is the same, but I'm not 100% sure. I've never attempted the swap.
To do throttle ADP, key on, go 01-04-098. To exlpain, in VCDS, click on 01-ENGINE, then 04-BASIC SETTINGS, then type 098 in field 1 and click GO. It'll say ADP RUN in field 4, you'll hear the...
Post exact codes. Check the secondary ignition components.
Was the throttle ADP performed?
Also, bring #1 to TDC as per flywheel mark, then remove the distributor cap and verify that the distributor is installed correctly.

Type your zip code into this thread:
Bump what? Did you try cleaning/replacing the ISV as suggested?
Everything's for sale for the right price :D
Probably one OE and one Chinese. I'd try the cheap one first, for $12 why not.
You're looking for part number 06A 103 465.
Gasket to valve cover is built in. Top gasket is built into oil fill cap.
You're best off doing it yourself if you want to save money.
You can remove the head without pulling the whole engine and do anything you want with it (valves, cam, porting, etc). The stock ABA...
Verify timing and make sure the ignition wires are properly installed on the distributor cap.
Also, perform throttle ADP. You're going to have to drop the $100 on VCDS to do this.
Post up a...
Either way, keep us updated when you get a final diagnosis :beer:
This. I also only keep liability on my cars, not collision/comp, as they're all older and high mileage. I'm one driver with two vehicles on my policy, and liability only isn't terrible. Granted, I...
A lot of stuff on VW can't be seen with generic OBDII. If you're going to be working on the car yourself, invest in the proper tool. It will save you headaches (and money) in the long run.
If it's OBDI you can't do the throttle ADP, that's OBDII only.
Check the ISV. Remove it and clean it out good, see if that helps.
