Re: Overheating but temp normal. Help!

Have you heard of any restrictions that happen? Like thermostat not fully opening, you get my point. Cylinder head overheating, but really hot water not getting to the radiator. I will replace all sensors, hope it clears the issue, but since the light comes on when idling, so low circulation of cool...

Overheating but temp normal. Help!

So I have a DKZ engine, It is running fine, no misfire, opening thermostat, engine temp 80-82 degrees, fan kicks on at 89-91 degrees. Coolant not missing. When driving nothing happens out of the ordinary, but if I stand still with the engine running for more than a minute or two, the high temperatur...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

Its been a looooong while since I last wrote. So to conclude the previous problem. I broke the small planetary gears in the differential. Going to my parts bin there was a gearbox from a 1.3 Simca. It was a BE1/5. I took the Differential out and didn't replace the whole crown but only managed to fit...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

Guys we have a BIG problem! I've been really busy at work and been traveling a lot for work in the GTI. It's now done 30kkm since december and yesterday gave out. It started as stuttering, as it were a ignition problem, but on further inspection it was mechanical. Loud banging noise from the drive t...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

Still thinking about removing the liners. But the problem was in the head bolts came loose. Out of the blue the bolts corroded, they got all full of holes. As it seems I should have replaced the bolts, but they didn't look nearly as bad as they do now. I drove 3K km after head gasket was changed. An...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

It was every light on the car. Voltage regulator had a fault. But there is a more pressing issue.
The head gasket has gone once more. It seams the liners had moved as i put on the head. So here we go again.

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

122hp,88kw originally, but the cat is removed. So yes DKZ engine, Motronic 1.3. Now there is a new thing happening, all the lights are flickering with the engine running. Like a missfire, but there is no missfire as the engine runs perfectly still and the rpm is constant. Could it be the ignition co...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

Guys, we had a little incident with the GTI. I've done with it about 5-6K km and after a longer FAST ride in the morning it was very hard to crank. Started after quite some trouble and could not idle at all. Then after 10min the white smoke came from the tail pipe and then water started cumming from...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

Thats what I thought. Here and there you can find a 5-door Mk 1 GTi for sale ( if youre very lucky ) but I have never seen a Mk 2 for to buy here in germany. Same all countrys around. Only two ( over ten years ) in swiss. Hope the condition of your red one allows you to keep it alive. Where are you...

Re: Finally I found a GTI!

The steering rack bushing is made out of metal, mainly steel but bronze on the working part. You can use a full bronze bushing. You must heat a little the steering box when fitting the new bushing, without this it can crack. SRDTURBO, could you please take me step by step through the process of rec...
