  1. 1.8T Engine Forum
    I recently had my car serviced and the turbo seems to be having some issues now. It's not spooling up at all and makes a really weird, almost belt or vibration like noise when you let off the gas around 3000rpm. Anyone know what that's about? It feels like I'm not getting the same acceleration...

  3. Golf II & Jetta II
    Whats up yall. I've been thinking about engine swapping my 1986 Mk2 diesel (1.6NA) golf with something fun to make it a bit of a racecar. I've heard about the VR6 and 1.8t swaps but I really don't know what's best. I've also seen people making really good power out of the 1.6T and 1.9T AAZ...
  4. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    EDIT: Part identified as Camshaft plug or end cap. Thanks everyone for the help! Hopefully this keeps oil inside the engine instead of all over the engine bay. Noticed I'm leaking a LOT more oil than I should be (I know I shouldn't be leaking any, but I digress...) Looked for leaks and found...
  5. Golf/GTI VI
    Hey all, I'm looking for any advice. I recently bought an '11 GTI with the autobahn package - I've had it less than 2000 miles and I brought it in to a local VW mechanic (specialist, not a dealer) for a loud ticking noise plus a coolant leak that has developed. I talked to him a couple days...
  6. 1.8T Engine Forum
    Hello all, I have a 2002 Jetta 1.8t. Since purchasing it, I've been hearing a knocking/ticking sound that seems to be coming from the top end of the engine. I recently dropped the oil pan to take a look at the oil pickup. Sure enough, the pickup was clogged with some sort of plastic debris...
  7. Golf III & Jetta III
    I was driving in a city with no drains and floods a lot. I went through a puddle or what I thought was a puddle... and could not stop in time so the mk3 died. Waited 20 min to let the vapors release and nothing. Waited another 10 min and I made the mistake of pumping my gas pedal because I was...

  9. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Looking for gurus with first hand experience on this one. I have a 2006 TDI DSG and need the full engine harness that is no longer available, 03G-972-619-KN. The manual trans 03G-972-619-KM is available. After searching the forum history, I found a reference that says the MT harness has an...
  10. TDI and Diesel Forum
    Hi, My problem is regarding the engine start when it is cold outside. The behavior is like giving the key, the electromotive is spinning, but the engine does not start. One important thing is the fact that in the summer, the start of the engine is doing fine, no problem, and the engine is...

  15. Golf VIII R
    Hi, team, I just wanted to present my findings as best as possible regarding the possible epidemic of failing engines in Mk8 Golf R's and also Arteons which share the same engine. My particular issue started as a high RPM misfire as soon as I went WOT for the first time at 1,000 miles after...

    Hello everyone, I have a 2018 tiguan and the check engine light recently came on. My code reader is reading a 006936 code and I cannot seem to find that code anywhere. When i initially checked and cleared codes, there was a code about a fuel control valve stuck open. I cleared it and now what...
  18. Golf/GTI VI
    I just bought a 2012 gti, engine code CBFA, with a seized engine. And I found an engine at a junkyard with 75,000 miles, also same engine code, but it’s a 2014. Would the 2014 fit perfectly without any issues in my 2012 gti?
  19. 2.0 TSI & TFSI (EA888 Gen 1 & Gen 2) Engine Forum
    New to the forums, so pardon any etiquette gaffes. I have a horror story about a beautiful 2010 GTI with 87k miles I got back in February in great condition. It began when I started getting misfires right around 90k miles. Figured it was either carbon deposits, spark plugs, coils, or a...
  20. Golf/GTI VII
    Hey guys, I’ve got a 2015 Gti pp, about a week ago I installed and tuned (through a local tuner) for an HPA IS38+ turbo. I also installed a hpfp at this time to assist with fueling. The other day I put about a gallon of e85 in the tank followed by 10 gallons of 92. The car drove fine and had no...
