The dealer says it is also recommended to change the water pump while they are at it. But the price quoted is more than $300 over the max price estimated for the timing belt alone and they want to charge me another $269 for the water pump, then the thermostat is another $161. I'm getting ripped off if i schedule this I can see that...besides negotiating with them, what are my choices?
My engine light is on and the code P2112: Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Closed, is appearing on the code reader. My car will not start. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I just had mine fail. now I am looking at finding a good mechanic or helping my brother who is the one who is mechanically inclined in the family do it. I have none of the specialty tools yet but I could acquire them. How much time/money would I save by doing this myself or having a shop do it.
Also, it's already halfway pulled apart and I am looking at the outside of the crankshaft. And my brother has done nothing on German cars before but he is up for the task. Thanks in advance.
Hello im Andrew Davie. I have a 2006 vw jetta tdi 1.9L I would like to take all the exhaust filtering system out and just have a old school exhaust system. Is this possilbe while keeping the car running. See I have a leake somewhere in that filtering system and its causing my mpg to drop so I figure if I take all that out and make it go into a nice exhaust system like banks or magnaflow system that It would run just fine. What do you thank. Help me get a delete kit...
How essential is the glow plug harness for vw to run properly?
While driving condensation slowly starts to appear, temp is on warm fan is on 2 and the control def/floor heat. We turn the fan to 3 or 4 in order to remove condensation. Instead windows complete get fog out and then it tries to clear itself, however they never clear properly, or completely. Dealer states nothing wrong with car
its shifting into high and then low on its own. Needs to be rebuilt. Has 92,000 miles
car will not let me put in the key to start car
When you drive the car for the first time of the day, it doesn't want to shift out of 2nd gear (rpms just rev up) and doesn't go any where, then it shifts (eventually). Its and automatic transmission. But after it happens it seems to be fine. Someone told me it was that I needed to replace the hose running to the turbo. Is that true?
When i start the car in morning it takes a little while to get cold i replace the cabin filter and it help for about a week caltrex@yahoo.com
A/C unit is charged. Mechanic says there is an obstruction in the expansion valve and needs to be replaced
How to replace the expansion valve on ac system
is it necessary to replace the expansion valve when replacing the ac compressor. Should you flush it with the old drier the install the new one. The expansion valve is behind the motor, how do you get to it if it must be replaced?
Problem occurs at every startup. The dealer wanted to recharge the AC, but that is a joke, as the AC is plenty cold once the compressor kicks in. 5 to 7 minutes is an unacceptable delay, as we are hot and sweaty by the time we get cool air from the AC. Thanks!
I've had the car for 5 1/2 months and driven 10,000 miles, when the clutch went out and the spider gear exploded from the transmission. I was coming up to a stop sign and depressed the clutch, heard a pop and the clutch would not come back up. When taken to dealer, they will not cover under my bumper to bumper warranty.
