    Good evening! I have a 1980 Volkswagon Rabbit (Diesel). ISSUE: Battery dies within a day or two after a full charge. BACKGROUND: For a few weeks now, I noticed the battery light come on but illuminate like a dancing strobe light. Seemed to be intermittent when it came on. Sometimes it'd be...

    Anyone ever do the headliner in a 2007? I have a hand me down with just 30,000 miles on it but it sat outside in VA heat and most of the fabric is pretty sagging. It looks like a nasty bit of work as a DIY and it also looks like $$$$ to have it done professionally. Any thoughts? Thanks

    Need suggestions on extent of engine overhaul required for major over heat. She was smoking. The belt broke on my 79 beetle and I didn't know. Less then 10K on engine. Can I get away with new pistons, cylinders and head with valves. And an oil change of course! I am towing her home...

    This is more of an informative post than anything else, since a recent episode got me thinking. If you get one of these where the engine was done VERY RECENTLY (ie miles)...don't go nuts on the throttle right away. Observe... The 81 4-door mentioned in my sig (1.6D NA) has yet to see the...
