    Hello All, I'm looking for an automatic trans from a mk1 or 2. I would prefer a diesel but they are much harder to find. Not sure if the converter is different. I also have a 5 speed if someone wants to do a conversion. I could also use information if you have some to share. Thx everyone.

    Hey everyone, so I have a 81 rabbit pickup with the 1.6D ever since I bought the truck I've had trouble with air in the fuel lines, it's only when the truck isn't running the fuel rushes back to the tank, when it's running it's fine, I have pressure tested the system and I found no fuel leaking...

  6. Passat B5 Forums
    I have a 2002 Passat GLX wagon. Has the V6 automatic. The flex pipes were rotted out, so I bought new parts. My son got the passenger side out, and replaced, but we can't get the drivers side out because there is just no room. It looks like the subframe has to be lowered to get clearance. Has...

  9. MKV How-to's and DIY's
    So I have a new CV Shaft -- current inner boot is torn and causing some rather discomforting wobble/shimmying under acceleration.

    I am thinking of changing the exhaust manifold from gas to diesel on my '81 pickup. I got a used engine from an '82 rabbit (gas) and think the exhaust manifold from an '81 diesel would be simpler and more economical. The diesel exhaust downpipe is simple and inexpensive compared to the gas...

    This is the issue that I was fighting a week ago. Here is the Skinny, 93's came with a spoked flexplate (flywheel, drive plate). In 1990.5 VW changed from a solid flex plate to a spoked one.
