      20k is too soon, I guarantee it's the cheap bushings. My buddy tried some Chinese ebay valve cover gaskets on his s4 and they leaked like a sieve, after swapping in some victor reinz it stopped...

      Check your rear axle beam bushings. If they're starting to rot out they can make the rear end wobble around a bit and it gives it that floaty feel. One they get really bad you can feel it in fast...

      There's always a thread or two on mjm around. I used them once and had an okay experience, got the parts I wanted but they came in seperate orders a couple weeks apart. Took about a month. That was...

      I would sand or wirewheel all the rust off down to bare clean metal, treat it with a rust remover primer or a zinc chromate/phosphate primer, then fill over that with body filler and repaint....

      As far as I know, the factory did it to help keep the engine head from warping so quickly. As we know, our vr's have all the intake on one side and the exhaust on the other, so the exhaust half of...

      Interesting. Seems those small headgasket leaks that reseal and break again with temp changes are hard to track. I had the same symtoms, when up to temp it would blow coolant out of the overflow but...

      True, but a headgasket will usually do it instantly on startup and more violently than just a bad cap seal, since it's exhaust leaking into the coolant system on every single compression stroke. If...

      Bad o ring on the coolant reservoir cap will make it weep out of the overflow as soon as it gets up to temp.

      Also, on reassembly, make sure that there isn't too much grease on those bolt threads. I believe they get torqued to 33 ft/lbs, if I remember right.

      I've had a set back themselves out after a...

      That's an awesome idea! The 12v vr mani is so huge, I don't see why you couldn't stuff a high flow air/water exchanger in there.

      Absolutely agree with you guys.

      I feel like so few cars nowadays have any real kind of soul. Maybe that's just what sells, or maybe that's what sells because it's all there is. I wish I could...

      Too bad it had to be that way. I'm sure vw considered it a failure in the end, but it still got some excellent reviews. It was pretty advanced for it's time, and had some awesome features, but I...

      I would check the shift cables where they mount on the shift tower in the engine bay. May need adjustment or something broke. Failing that, check the gear oil level. Remove the 17mm allen fill plug...

      22 year old Corrado is my summer daily.
      41 year old Scout is my winter daily.

      So I guess I chose exciting over reliable. It's a pain. But it's kinda fun too.
