Hey guys i need a little technical advice. (idk if this should be in the tech. forum but oh well)
My jetta is getting disgusting gas mileage, im talking about 13 mpg. It has a skip, I think it is electrical, distributer? It makes this tick tick tick noise, that sounds like electrical impulses. So far I have checked compression, all is well, had the injectors rebuilt, new plugs and wires, what would be the next step? should i replace the distributer?
btw its a 95 (obd1) 12v vr6.
