  1. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I recently did an full engine change on my gti, duering which I swapped my old tranny over to my new motor. When I turned on the car the clutch felt really light and in neutral the wheels spin as well as a grinding noise coming from the tranny unless I hold down the clutch. I'm going to bleed...

    Hello, I am currently doing an engine swap on my Mk 4 GTI. Putting a "newer" 1.8t AWP into it so it is a 1 for 1 swap nothing different. While I was taking it apart it became clear it's going to be a total bastard to put back together between a million hoses and electrical connectors. So I was...

    Hoping theres some MK4 VW veterans that can help me out.. Specs: MK4 GTI 5-speed A/T engine 1.8t AWP Heres the gist: Car won't turn over on its own, but can be manually started with a 12v jump to the starter, so I was thinking maybe a bad ignition switch? However, the car also doesn't want to...

    Alright everyone; it’s been a while… My 02j 05 1.8t gti is making this weird tick noise(it’s inconsistent but does only do it when warm). My initial thought was lifter tick but it is way to loud to be that and I know it’s not rod knock due to it not happening constantly. It does go with my...

    I have a 2003 vw gti 1.8t. My windshield wipers, blinkers and air stoped working. I was told it could be my ignition switch so I changed that. I noticed some bad wires on the connecter and I replaced that. I am so lost of what it could be. I also noticed that my fuse relay 75x I believe it is...

    I just recently purchased an 04 gti 1.8t. Today as I was trying to find the exhaust leak I saw oil drop come from the intercooler where charge pipe connects. I am concerned that the turbo seal is bad as the car has 228k miles on it. I have some mechanical education/experience but definitely not...

    So I got my first vw, a MK4 gti 1.8t, and put an intake and exhaust on it along with a coil pack upgrade. After getting a stage 1 tune I’m pretty sure I blew my charge pipe. Car sounds like it’s got a cam now struggles to stay running and the brakes are hard as a rock. Does this sound like it...

    Hello everyone. I have a 2002 mk4 Jetta 1.8t. I was swapping my ecu with my buddy and they both have emmo deletes but I didn’t disconnect the battery when doing it and now the car will crank but not start.
