  4. 1.6na diesel not starting once slightly cooled

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    basically what the title says... I let it sit for an hour after warm and it just turns over and smokes until it kind of chugs itself along.

  5. The kick

    Hi, Down to the problem. At 2500 rpm the car sudden kicks and the kick is becoming more and more obvious with time. It was a problem that was fixed after they replaced the data pass control 400EUROS, but it seems it is coming back again. Any ideas or anybody facing the same issue? Thanks.

    Hello, This is my first post. I recently bought a 78 Diesel Rabbit. When I bought it, I was told that the radiator fan needs to be replaced, but when I hotwire it directly to the battery, it works just fine. I flushed the radiator, replaced the thermostat and the thermo switch, but it still...
  10. 2012 Jetta 2.5 heavy kick to downshift!

    Jetta Owners Club
    I just bought a new 2.5 Jetta and feels like it needs a heavy kick to downshift. It tries to keep the rev as low as possible and changes the gears quickly to get to 6th gear when you driving slow. As a result I found that I were either groaning along in sixth or screaming in third. Have anyone...
