      Oil cooler flow issues, install aftermarket cooler.
      Oil flow issues, causing it to get hotter.

      I am assuming you used an external oil temp gauge?

      I'm thinking they should fit, but may want to roll fenders to be safe? I'm also not looking for too much poke, if you can comment on that would be great. Also, maybe what tire size would be ideal.
      Future suspension plans include Koni Coils, but probably not until next Fall.
      Best thing to do is mock up one of the wheels with no tire if you have a chance or search for an offsett calculator and base your results off of factory offset.

      Well I'm strapped for cash right now to be spending on the c. My friend works at the local junkyard and they always have mk4 s laying around. I know there used lines but my question is can I just take the lines off a mk4. And use them? Didn't know about the ebrake cable ill grab that too. So mk4 Lines straight off the mk4 on my corrado, yay or nae

      Unfortunately not directly but there is a free solution. Take the rubber lines from the mk4 and also clip the fittings off of the hard line. Cut your corrado hard line and re-flare the mk4 fitting on. Presto!

      Seriously though, it seems as if they are yanking your chain, can you take it in to another inspector? What year is your car? Can you convert it to non-ABS? Possible on the ABS light being a bad bulb, but could be the ABS unit or computer, I would test the light first.

      1994 Corrado VR6
      05-25-2012 12:52 AM #6935
      ABS question...

      My ABS light has been on since I bought the car. I didn't bother to fix it because it's a Corrado and the ABS doesn't work on any of them. Lately the ABS has been giving feedback to the brake pedal at very low pressure braking and only intermittently. This started around the same time I started to hear the unmistakable sound of a shot wheel bearing. Could they be related? How common is weird ABS resistance? I've never owned a car with ABS, so I honestly don't even know what's normal. And I disconnected the ABS light, so I have no idea if it's still on or not. I'd have to find it to test I suppose...

      EDIT: 94 VR6

      Do you need me to fly over there and hand out beatdowns?

      On a serious note, like I said before, how do you gauge pedal throw on a broad scale? Are the brake pads too low? That would cause them to go down further.

      I don't think that's an option (unless he knows some people from the TUV )...

      Atleast around here, TUV (mot) inspections are very strict (I'm guessing the same applies to most countries in Europe) - if you car came equipped with ABS originally you can not delete it.

      For example, my Corrado came without catalytic (yes, we did get those here ) and they can't force me to put one no matter how much I polute the enviroment If it came with one originally then I wouldn't be allowed to delete it...

      Time to register in the US, not Cali

      Was reading thru a Dupont Registry earlier today and there was a lawyer advertising registering cars in Montana to save sales tax and BS inspections.

      brake pads are new..
      its normal and also the mechanic says its all good..
      was there today that super inspector was certainly not there, the other one said i have to show it again in a few days, but first i need from vw the proof that all is ok and then it should be ok..

      and i can change the mot station only before i go to the mot, now i have starte here and have to finish at the same place..

      Hello I have a 1990 g60. I have this knocking sound which I could feel on the serpentine belt tensioner(which I'm guessing is that small shock). Not sure if it is that but that seems like the problem. Does anyone know where I could buy a new one or is there a fix to this.

      Thanks for the help

      You can buy the oem tensioner from the dealership (that's where I bought mine 2 years ago - expensive )

      Either that or you can buy aftermarket solid adj. tensioners. For example: http://www.bar-tek-tuning.com/cgi-bi...che--tensioner

      Haven't tried any of those personally

      Keep in mind that its mostly the bushings that go bad on the tensioners. They sell solid replacement bushings ( http://epmtuned.com/id274.html ) since I don't think you can buy oem ones individually from the dealership (but I could be wrong)

      1st wrong section
      2nd what solenoid????
      3rd contact your dealer for fluid specifications but my guess would be 90w gear oil if it's a 5spd

      I need help isolating a noise.. 90 G60, what I thought was a bad wheel bearing...replaced bearing, right side...noise is still there...but seems to be more middle/ left on the transmission side...axles are in good shape as well as ball joints and surrounding items. the noise happens all the time except when not in load, cornering right... not too farmiliar with tranny work so I was wondering what else I can check...could it be an input bearing if it makes the noise while coasting? I hope its just my other wheel bearing and the noise is traveling..I plan on doing my other wheel bearing for good measure tomm and was looking to see what else I could look for... thanks guys/gals have a good Holiday!

      Bro it's the axles. They may look good but it's definitely the axles if it's happening under load only.

      Have a great weekend everyone!

      thanks mike...theyre both less than a year old.... thats why I was leaning more towards the other wheel bearing... would it have anything to do with the tranny if it still makes the noise while coasting?
