If your battery has the ability to add water to it. Do it only after the battery has been charged overnight. Never add water to a dead battery prior to charging. When a battery charges the plates thicken and as a result the water level rises in the cell. Filling a dead battery results in leaking electrolyte (water and acid mixture) which would have to ...

I have a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire that HAD a similar issue. After having been looked at by far too many people, one mechanic figured out how to recreate the issue by pouring water on a certain part of the engine while running (sorry I'm not sure where exactly), but even that didn't shed much light on the issue since it was supposed to be acceptable to do that. ...

The engine will be fine - cars are designed to work in all conditions anywhere in the world. VW has a testing center that can theoretically test their cars and engines to work from -40 to 150C (saves on flying development cars to Finland and the Sahara) There will be some differences in the car trim levels; for example, cars in hot countries probably ...

I'd imagine that just swapping the coolant and potentially installing a block heater would be good enough, even if there were differences. Like purchasing any other vehicle, though, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have it inspected, and make sure that it runs without issue prior to purchasing it.

The values seem awfully high on the low side. The high side is the output of the compressor to the condenser coil where the refrigerant is in liquid form. The low side pressures should be about a third of the high value. The low side is the line to the evaporator coil (inside the vehicle) which is vapor form. When the system is being charged it is from the ...

3 ways: Drive the vehicle and do both light braking from 25mph then hard braking from 55mph, if the brake pedal pulses up and down or the steering wheel shakes or vibrates, then you have at least one warped rotor. If stops are smooth and relatively noise free then go to #2 below. Pull the rotors and do a visual inspection, look for cracks (even small ones) ...

I eventually bought the car. After a bit of searching it turned out the issue was caused by wrong choke plate setting - the bimetallic spring tension was to low and sometimes the choke was kept open too much when cold and sometimes it didn't fully open after warming up. Simply turning the autochoke mechanism by a couple of degrees solved the problem.

Will installing a pneumatic suspension damage my vehicle? Not necessary depending on the kit. Per your vehicle a company called Air Lift does make an air ride lowering kit for your vehicle that has air bags for the rear that would simply replace the spring: and air struts for the front that will replace the coilovers: The issue you would face is ...

Get a bunch of carburetor cleaner and some oil picks Really, it's not a big job but it's a little nasty. Having some metal mixing bowls to put the EGR into when you spray it down will help to contain the mess into a nice consolidated little package. Using some glovers as well is not a bad idea. How I've done it and I've only done one. Remove it ...

These could be seperate issues all together perhaps, the clutch does sound interesting, you might have missed something in the process of changing you're clutch? Also don't forget (I think) about the clutch slave (Not sure if VW beetles have one.. but I'd assume most if not all manual cars do).. Just check it over, making sure that everything is in its ...

You change the whole wiper Nobody makes just the rubber and sells it. They fit it to various wiper frame components that fit different models and sell the to the owners of the vehicle the wiper frame was designed to fit. If the package states it's for a particular vehicle, it's for that vehicle. I haven't known Bosche to sell a wiper for a VW Rabbit when ...

Vent Doors in your HVAC system are not working properly You have various doors in your system to direct air to appropriate places as you change the settings on your dash. When you want air to come out at the floor and you change the setting, a door closes off or opens up appropriately in your system to direct the air to the correct location. The internal ...

The sumps on most if not all Volkswagen watercooled engines can be changed with the engine still in the car including the Bora V6.
