Thinking about doing a DIY, any advice?

Jan 27, 2017 - 1:04 AM - by JerryLtowIt
JerryLtowIt's Avatar The coolant temp sensor housing on my Mkv Gli has a hairline crack in it. Anything I should be prepared for? I've seen a few threads on and about the sensor itself, but not the housing. It looks pretty straight forward, though the location is not my favorite. 😬

You can barley see fluid seeping. I can't think of how that could've happened.

A noob here...

Dec 05, 2016 - 10:46 PM - by JerryLtowIt
JerryLtowIt's Avatar Just wanted to check in and say hello! I purchased my 07 Gli about four months ago from a tow yard I worked at. Someone's bad luck turned out in my favor. I practically stole it for the $1500 I paid. Very clean, inside and out, and I'm finding out the previous owner must've been a Jetta Junkie as well. There are lots of mods this guy did, and probably one of the reasons it was impounded. I'll be posting here and there, anxious to get to know this wonderful car! It's pretty fast.

1.8t not running with full power..

May 24, 2017 - 3:18 PM - by Bren
Bren's Avatar I recently got a stage II tune with multi setting done to my mk4 03 1.8t, and when I put the car into 93 octane mode the car will sputter and then backfire with flames when I go any higher than about half throttle. When the car is in stock mode I am only getting about 50% power without any sputtering. When I have my car in stock mode and run it for about 4 hours I can usually get full power. Not too sure why this is happening, I'm not getting any check engine light or anything. I recently... [Read More]

Another Engine Noise Thread

May 24, 2017 - 8:00 AM - by BombasticGinger
Heya everyone, I've got a ticking/rattle that was not originally there when I bought the car.

I realize engine noise is incredibly hard to diagnose over the internet... but I figure someone might have a good ear, and be able to lend me a hand.

I've heard a handful of things can "go" (pulleys, tensioners, etc.) on 1.8T's and cause a handful of different rattles and what not. If anyone has any ideas and can point me in the

Drove car, shut off engine then restarted. Now it wants to idle at 3-4,000rpm!

May 23, 2017 - 8:42 PM - by Gas_wag
Edit: Oops, it's a 2004 2.0 manual Golf.

I just replaced my control arm bushings and ball joints today then took the car out for a test drive. While I was out I could hear a little metallic clunk if I got on the gas so after I pulled into my driveway I decided to start it back up and see if I could reproduce the sound by loading the clutch with the brake on in 1st and reverse. Well, I started the engine and had some sort of low voltage episode (back to this in a sec) but it started... [Read More]

Replaced Injectors now the idle.

May 23, 2017 - 12:21 PM - by Swerve
Swerve's Avatar I have replaced my stock injectors for 440cc injectors. Now my cars idle pulses. It goes from about 600RPM to 1100RPM. Over and over again. I replaced them because I put a tune on my car. Is my timing off because of the new injectors or could it be something else. Thank you

Swerve's Avatar I am wanting to know about the Vagcom or VCDS. I have a dongle that I can connect to my car (USB) and to my computer. I have looked through this forum and couldn't find anything related. My dongle is from my tune (Motoza Performance) and I was wondering what I needed to do to get it to read on my car. I have both VCDS and vagcom installed on my windows computer.
