      Up for sale in CT 06488. Love this car but have too many cars and one has to go. As you can see by the spare parts included, I had plans to do a veggie conversion and power mods but life got in the way. Any questions, just ask.

      Photos at www.photobucket.com/user/yankeejim/library/Jetta

      Car is dirty in photos (sorry, those are muddy cat paw prints on hood/trunk), ask me for any additional photos you want to see. To discuss, call or text Jim at (two oh three) 843-sixtyfive twentyseven

      1992 Jetta ECOdiesel (1 of 47, last mechanically-controlled IDI model in US)
      1.6l turbodiesel
      173k miles
      5-speed
      Runs and drives great
      Car has only been run on diesel
      Consistent 40mpg in mixed driving (has stock AVX transmission which is geared quite low, makes car more fun to drive but will probably not get you 50mpg hwy)

      Has:
      Sunroof
      Recaro seats
      Power steering removed
      Manual windows, locks, sunroof
      GLI steering wheel
      GLI grille (PO did this, not me)
      Rear spoiler
      Sunroof bubble
      Chinese door handles
      All-red taillights
      Bra
      Straight pipe instead of rear muffler (not loud due to turbo and catalytic converter)

      Comes with many extras:
      Bentley manual
      Head bolt sockets
      Timing tools (dial gauge, probe, cam lock, pump lock)
      Injection pump gear removal tool
      Exhaust clamp tool
      Shifter bushing rebuild kit (not installed)
      Shifter alignment tool
      4 extra MANN oil filters/ gallon of Rotella T synthetic oil / couple bottles of Diesel Treat
      Extra set of bumpers (lower half color matched to body, ok condition)
      Extra set of good big bumper trim
      Extra heater blower motor (current one is noisy sometimes)
      Some extra coolant hoses and engine seals
      Saab intercooler (not installed, would need custom fab)
      Newer JVC stereo with ipod/mp3 input, speakers, amp, 10” free-air subwoofer in rear deck
      Veggie conversion parts and plans (not installed) – Dana Linscott plans, parts, tank switch, 12 gal marine fuel tank with fuel gauge and heated fuel pickup, electric heated filter, vacuum gauge, fittings...
      Duostyling voltage gauge (not installed)
      more

      Brief history of major service, newest to oldest:
      172k - Oil change with Mobil 1 turbodiesel oil, Mann oil filter, air filter, Bosch fuel filter, alternator belt, A/C belt
      167k - New tires and wheels, axles, lower ball joints, sway bar end links, alignment
      161k - clutch cable
      152k (Aug 2010) - rear drums turned (were out of round from factory), rear brake pads, heavy duty rear suspension springs, Bilstein touring rear shocks
      151k - rebuilt injectors, Viton return lines, new head gasket, lower radiator hoses, new glow plugs with manual switching and individual wiring
      130k - transmission fluid change with Redline MTL
      121k - Radiator, thermostat, rad fan thermoswitch, timing belt, tensioner, water pump
      119k - Heater core, front brake rotors and pads, rear brake drums/shoes/wheel cylinders/hardware, new 22mm master cylinder
      118k (2004) - Front struts and bearing plates

      Considerations:
      Car has rebuilt title (I have no history on the accident but my guess is that it was a front-end accident where car hit low fixed object and needed new grille, radiator support/radiator, bumper. Oil pan is pretty dinged up but does not leak)
      AC does not work, all parts are present but there is a hole somewhere in system.
      Some rust on rocker panel where previous owner used screws to attach trim
      Bra hides some damage to leading edge of hood and driver’s fender
      Uses quart of oil in about 1.5k miles. Compression seems excellent (starts great in winter) so turbo is probably using some oil.
      Uses small amount of coolant (maybe 8oz top-off when changing oil). No visible leaks, and no oil in coolant or coolant in oil.
      Injection pump could use a reseal at some point – recommend Viton seals on this anyway if going to run veggie/biodiesel. Again, comes with injection pump gear removal tool, so owner can r/r pump for service.
      Will be due for timing belt at 181k, but again comes with all timing tools so owner can r/r timing belt.
      Needs new headliner
      Shifter is a little sloppy (but comes with bushing rebuild kit)
      Left rear door sticks (probably needs new striker post)
      Clutch vibrates when cold (could probably use a new clutch, but current clutch does not slip)

      Still for sale as of the moment, all pm's replied to.

      Also need to mention that the horn and the license plates lights do not work.
