Question Asked: 

I have 2 Dodge 2500 Diesel trucks (1998 and 1999) with the same issues. The speedo is intermittently working as well as failure of the fuel gauge. Is this common? Is it the wiring on the back of the cluster? Thanks!

Question Asked: 

I just picked up a 2000 Volvo S70 AWD 2.4L. It has 3 transmission P codes. P0756 Shift Solenoid (B) Performance or Stuck off; P01618 Fault in lead between AW 50-52 and Motronic 4.3; and P0740 Torque converter clutch solenoid circuit. Does anyone know if we can just swap solenoids like in a VW or does the entire transmission need to be rebuilt or replaced. Thanks in advance.

Question Asked: 

We have a 2005 Jeep Liberty 2.8L diesel. We have cleaned the intake and egr as well as done a timing belt service. We have also swapped the map sensor and fuel filter. We are getting a P0069 MAP sensor and BAR sensor correlation and the pedal position sensor light is flashing. Any ideas where to go next????

Question Answered: 

These should be replaced in your 60K service. Approx 4.5 hours of labor + cost of parts. You may be charged a bit more if they are going to use the diagnostic software. I just gave you hours for replacement of the parts below. Hope this helps! Air Filter Element Cabin Air Filter Drive Belt Replace Poyrib belt. Engine Oil Fuel Filter Oil Filter, Engine Spark Plug

You can try asking a certified welder to weld the oil pan but that would be a big liability in my opinion. If the weld doesn't hold then they would be liable for the damage to your engine if it occurred. It is also going to depend on where the whole is and the size. Good luck!

Question Answered: 

What color is the fluid? It could be transmission fluid. I would put the car up on a jack or take it to a mechanic to see if they can find where the leak is coming from. That will help narrow done what type of fluid it is and why its leaking.

Your car is going into limp mode? Do you have a CEL? It could be a number of things causing this...Clogged fuel filter, clogged intake manifold, vacuum leak, turbo, etc. I would have your car hooked up to VAGCOM and check for fault codes.

Get an ECU tune done...There are many different companies that can tune your car. I would recommend going on TDIclub.com and you will be able to find a company that best suits your needs. GOOD LUCK!

80K miles...Make sure you get the tensioner, idler pulleys, water pump and bolts changed at the same time. Also make sure you go to a place that has the proper lock out tools and VAGCOM to check timing after the service is complete.

Question Answered: 

If they do not replace all of the components then do not go to that shop. When doing a timing belt service on a TDI you must change the timing belt, tensioner, idler pulleys, bolts, camshaft seal, vacuum pump seal, accessory belt, and water pump. You also need special lock out tools when doing a timing belt service and VAGCOM to check timing after the service is complete. If you do not change all of these and use the proper tools you risk cylinder head damage. Always make sure that the shop is using good quality parts. We use German parts and VW G12 coolant. Also $1000 for all the parts listed plus labor is a good price. Our price is just shy of this.

Question Answered: 

It is either related to the sunroof drainage system or there is a build up of leaves in area between the engine bay and the body of the car. You can remove the plastic area at the bottom of the windshield and blow out any debris in there. Or the sunroof drains which you have to pull off some of the moulding on the bottom inside of the door by the floor board.
