  2. Golf I & Jetta I
    Hi everyone, I'm totally new here, but not new to Volkswagens. I did considerable work to my father's 1965 Beetle years ago and I currently drive a 2016 Golf Sportwagen. Long story short, I'm looking to get rid of the car payment and scoop up a MK1 Rabbit to daily (hatches and pickups are both...
  3. TDI and Diesel Forum
    What’s up fellas, I’m new to the forum. Couldn’t really find what I was looking for (maybe I’m bad at searching). Anyways, how feasible (realistic) is it to push a turbo block 1.6 IDI to about 170 hp at the crank? I was thinking with a Giles built pump, head studs and a compound turbo and...

    I have an ‘81 rabbit diesel, and I’m trying to figure out the most reliable way to repair the fuel system. It has bad seals, and currently needs to be bled nearly every time it runs. I am wondering if I should get the pump rebuilt, or try to find a replacement. Which places would rebuild it on...

    I have installed a new compressor, condenser, evaporator, expansion valve, added r134 fittings and recharged the system. The AC is putting out good cool air, but the compressor never stops running while the Ac is turned on. Shouldn't the compressor cycle on and off? I see the high pressure...

    1986 NA 1.6d Glow PLug light will flash while driving OR it'll come in slowly, flicker, and go away. sometimes it's not present. I unscrewed the water trap and heard fluid but literally nothing came out. The car drives fine doesn't make weird noises. The PO did have a box with new plugs in the...

    I am in increasingly desperate need of a set of new or reman injectors for a turbo IDI, but cant seem to find them anywhere in the states. I need 6, but I figured I'd ask here, as this forum is way more active than any volvo/d24t page. Any advice or leads is appreciated!
  11. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Hello all, I'm cross posting this in the diesel forum since I've gotten some helpful answers here before. I have a question that's probably stupid but I'm very inexperienced with any sort of automotive wiring. A while ago my glow plug light went out on my MK2 (1989 Jetta 1.6d). At first I...
  12. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hello all, I have a question that's probably stupid but I'm very inexperienced with any sort of automotive wiring. A while ago my glow plug light went out on my MK2 (1989 Jetta 1.6d). At first I assumed it was simply a dash light bulb that went out but the car had trouble starting during cold...

    I recently picked up a 1984 1.6 Diesel Rabbit. It will start (with a lot of throttle pumping), but will only idle for a few minutes on its own before gradually stalling out. I can drive it, and as long as I keep giving it fuel, it will keep running. But if I come to a stop sign, I have to...

    Hey guys, not sure if anyone has ever attempted this or not, I recently bought a MK2 1.6TD parts/donor car to put some parts onto my MK2 1.6D N/A and it came with what looks like a set of factory VW stamped roof bars. The bars themselves were rusted beyond repair, but the bases are solid and...

  18. Golf III & Jetta III
    I imported a 1y diesel 1995 golf from England to US back in 2020. I've put about 10k miles on it so far and just recently starting having this long crank issue. (It's not really a cold start issue because it will do it when the engine is warm/hot as well) when trying to start it will sometimes...
