    Hello I'm new here.... I'm trying to fix a my front wipers which stopped working. I took to a garage and they said it was the motor and said they could order and replace.

    Hey guys So a couple of days ago my car went into limp mode after driving around. The gears on the dashboard started flashing and it was stuck in 3rd gear. I wasn't even able to reverse the car. Eventually it shuts off and the only way for it to start again is to let it cool down. I can drive...

  7. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hi all, I have been running Castrol 20w50 since we bought the car in 2016 and I am thinking of switching to Shell Rotella T4 15w40. I notice on cold starts the car runs a little rough and we seem to get smoke out of the tailpipe that we didn't have for the first few years. After it warms up for...
  8. Golf MK2 / 1983-1992
    I am the original owner of a 1986 Golf Diesel and it is my daily driver. The key to my ignition became difficult to start the engine. I had to bear down hard on the key to start the starter. Battery went dead so I replaced it and jumped the starter wires and the starter turned freely. Small...

    I have a 1981 VW Caddy with 1.6l diesel (bad engine-no compression). Thinking about putting another diesel in it. My question--what sizes can I put in it and out of what cars will fit?? I am not interested in getting into changing wires and going computer.

    a few years back I replaced my struts and mounts, and I made the terrible mistake of replacing my springs, thinking that the 30 year old ones would be getting soft enough by now to be worth replacing. now I have a broken driver side spring, and Im considering replacing it with my old spring, as...
  12. GTI MK1 / 1983-1984
    So I just bought an 83 GTI Rabbit. I am wanting to fix it up to make it my daily driver. It is in really good condition and a lot has been done to it. New fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel lines, intake, all filters, spark plugs, timing belt, and had the CIS retimed. It only has 88,000 miles on it...

    When my 1981 truck gets to temp, the fuel pump has been quitting on me. I've tried different fuel pump relays--no change. When I jumper the relay socket, the pump runs and I can move on down the road. Before the engine reaches temp, and after it cools down, the engine runs normally. I'm thinking...
  14. General Volkswagen Discussion
    My 1981 truck has been stalling when the engine reaches temp recently. When I try to start it again, the fuel pump doesn't kick in. If I wait 15 or 20 minutes, it will usually start again, but only until the engine reaches temp again. I'm thinking the coil, the warm pressure regulator, or? I...
