2010 Jetta S, 2.5 My 2010 Jetta's blower motor often doesn't blow at full speed on level 4. Looking at some of the posts here related to blower motors, one of the posts indicated the resistance values for the resistor is posted somewhere on this forum. I have been unable to find it on this forum, on Ross-Tech, or even a general Google search. If anyone knows what the values should be, please post them here. I don't want to just blindly throw parts at the problem. THANK YOU ..read more

ALH flywheel TDC mark ?

This is an '03 ALH with manual (02J). Water pump leaks so I'm trying to do the TB job for my first time. P.O. Said he had the head replaced by a reputable shop due to cam wearing out. I've had the car for a few years, but haven't put a lot of miles on it. It ran fine (I guess) before the water pump blew it's seal (right after fixing the a/c) Besides some small bolt strippage the disassembly was normal until I'm looking to set the engine to TDC. Cam lobes pointing up, put the lock plate... ALH flywheel TDC mark ..read more

Taking a chance on an Amazon Clutch kit

So I have a Jetta GLX and I'm rebuilding the engine very soon and the goal is to basically max out the flow of stock intake (2.9 clone), ported exhaust manifolds and a REALLY good headworking by a personal friend of mine that has a few Top Fuel Bike Championships under his belt. Regularly builds 50k NA Race Engines and understands Airflow very, very well. ANYWAY. After all that and some cams (what do you think, 268 or 276? I'm leaning 268) I would really love to have a lightweight flywheel... Taking a chance on an Amazon Clutch kit ..read more

Compressor Control Valve savings

Went to a local Euro car mechanic to get my AC looked at. Complaining of intermittent hot air and ac not cooling until car reached temperature. Was quoted 1,700 to replace the compressor! To fix the issue. Freakin insane! After researching on this forum and others I replaced the Compressor Control valve. Problem solved! Total price to get ac back. Less than a 100 bucks. Mechanic prices are insane. 2013 Passat SEL TDI 97,xxx miles ..read more

2024 GTI Power Folding Mirror P/N?

This is a mod that I'm interested in doing. I've watched Charles' (Humble Mechanic) YT video a few.times to see how difficult this would be. Doesn't appear to be too difficult. However, I didn't think about the puddle lights having to be swapped out. I know someone on the forum posted a DIY thread on swapping out the puddle light but I was thinking that since the '24 models now have folding mirrors, wouldn't this be an easier mod assuming that the '24 GTI power folding mirrors already have... 2024 GTI Power Folding Mirror P/N ..read more

Not to be too political, but our choices are not the best this round. I'm thinking if BB would run as a write in, would you vote for him. Maybe LB will be the running mate. ToddA1 could be the campaign manager [if BB could even be managed ..read more

Puzzled by misfires and P030x codes

Hi folks! I'll use this thread to let off some steam and ask for some advice. I have a 2012 VW Eos, 71K Miles (114,000 km), owned the car since 2018. TSI 2.0 It all started around last September, when all of a sudden I had an EPC light come in, as well as a flashing CEL. Had to tow the car to my mechanic, since it wouldn't even start and a foul gasoline smell came from the engine. From that incident, all 4 fuel injectors ended up being replaced. A couple days after I got my car... Puzzled by misfires and P030x codes ..read more
