    Thread: something missing 1.6l td

    1. 04-25-2012 07:49 PM #1
      Hi, I just picked up this 1.6l td '94 golf. It seems to run fine (drove it 85km home) aside from what sounds to be a rattle in the flex pipe; but anyway, I just noticed this:



      in yellow - obviously missing, pardon my ignorance as to what it is

      in blue - two small wires in housing are snipped off, related problem?

      Thanks for your help, I am sure you all easily know these answers, please post

      It looks to be the positive crankcase ventilation(PCV) heater. I am not 100% on this but, if it is, some NA cars came with a dummy heater in place of an actual heater: so you may be just fine without it. Hopefully someone who is more familiar with your motor can chime in.

      The interior has the cruise feature, but when I push it I get an electronic clicking sound but no response while driving at all.
