      New Bosch maf. The aftermarket ones do not work on vws. That's experience. Also, don't get the remanufactured ones, they don't last very long. Look on rockauto, they often have the Bosch for a better...

      I had almost the exact problem with my Ford ranger after I redid the valves, and with it it was because the hydraulic lifters were pushing the valves open. I mechanically adjusted them (ground the...

      What is meant by a blown cylinder? For $75 you can't go wrong for sure! I'm one of the guys who will try to fix it instead of slapping a used engine in. Those aren't very hard to work on...

    10. FS: OEM MKV alternator clutch pulley and removal tool

      I got an alternator clutch pulley for my car, and it was cheaper for me to buy more than one from my supplier, so I have one extra. It's a new OEM pulley, not an el cheapo knockoff. Genuine Bosch/VW...

      I have a 1.6 liter with 12mm head bolts, mechanical lifters. It's from a 1982 Jetta. It supposedly ran before I got it. I got it with a transmission, but didn't need the engine. So, either I'll sell...
