    Currently I own a 2015 manual vw gti, I’ve got plenty of after markets parts and just the last weekend I installed a stage 3 clutch. I put the car back together correct. Also had a local mechanic take a look to verify that. Although when I put it back together right away since the first start up...

    Hi everyone! I just bought this 1981 VW Rabbit Convertible 1.7L and there are a couple of things I'm wondering. The A/C is locked up and the belt around it has been removed. This is fine because I'm not concerned with A/C at the moment. I do have a couple of dangling parts, however, that I can't...

    Hi, I have a mk4 1.6l golf, when i accelerate quickly from idle i hear a whooshing sort of sound, its just a short sound and was wondering whether it has something to do with a vacuum leak or whether its an anti throttle kickback system or something, thanks in advance for any contribution...

    When the outside temp is cold like single digits my power brakes go away after a few seconds after brakes are applied. If I drive it for a few miles like 15 then brakes behave normally. I have installed the newer style vacuum pump can't say if I had the same problem with the old style diaphragm...

    Hello to everyone. I recently purchased a 1983 Rabbit 1.7L FI as a restoration project. I was only going to do a little bit to it but I've fallen in love with the way it drives and looks. Here's my problem: The engine starts up and runs fine for a while then the idle becomes rough. When the idle...

    I thought I had a smallish vacuum leak. I have been hunting down for the past 2 weeks. changing hoses checking here and there. Today I found one where I have never had a problem before. The Vacuum advance valve wont hold vacuum and is just leaking through. but the car runs like a raped ape. So...

    I've been replacing vacuum hose even if it looks a little cracked or frayed and testing the car for the last couple of weeks and I've still come up dry. The car hesitates constantly like it's about to die and shakes. Tonight I was putting some parts back in the car in the dark and then started...
