    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 all, looking for any advice on my issues here. I've got an 81 diesel caddy. Currently overheating and I'm not sure where to look next.

    I feel like this is going to be an obvious answer and I'm going to feel dumb for asking but my 81 rabbit pickup 1.6 coolant system has random spontaneous problems, so starting with the reservoir I can't tighten the cap on all the way otherwise it builds up steam in the coolant system and...

    I am asking for any of your experiences of similar issues and fixes please. The story so far, my 2006 2.0 tdi Passat had a full clutch kit including flywheel slave and fluid change, all was fine until she became redundant for a few weeks and when used again the clutch pedal became very stiff...

    Hi all, I just removed the head from my 1979 Rabbit 1.5D which blew the head gasket. To my surprise I discovered that several of the coolant passages were blocked by the head gasket. These are passages that exist on the head and block, and you can see piles of sediment where coolant was unable...
