comment What causes brakes to pulsate right after rotor and pad replacement?
"It's not your new brakes" - good point. It likely is the new brakes but completeness does require us to consider the possibility that something coincidentally came up.

"they're on the opposite (bottom) ends of the pistons" - this is my favorite part of this answer. :-)

comment How can I remove the rearview mirror button off my windshield that I just put on upside down?
This sort of answer seems common to all adhesive removal (except for the razor part). Do we need an adhesive tag (or something like it)?

Spelling correction and more concise title; more applicable tags; punctuation.

This answer would be much more useful to the next person with the exact same question if you capture the flow of comments above as a series of steps in the answer itself. Currently, when I open the answer, I only see the very first comment.

revised Is it possible to paint my Mk1 Golf Engine in either Matte Black or Grey? If so, how?
It sounded like the engine paint was going to suddenly do burnouts and scream down the road.

comment What is the small plastic dimple found on some front doors?
Exactly. It is also the thing that gets pried out of position when a bad person wants to steal things from your car. I was never able to get ours precisely back in shape on our old Honda.

See Zaid's answer here (and cited above): he suggests MAF, fuel pump / filter and O2 sensors as possible culprits.

comment diesel pressure issue Fiat Punto 1.3 JTD
This sounds like the car is going into a "limp home" mode. Could you post the exact error messages that you are getting? I assume those are coming from some sort of OBD-II scanner or equivalent. FYI: my car can go into a limp home mode if the fuel filler cap isn't on tightly enough - that might be an easy thing to check.
