Integrated pad life and ABS sensor? Talk about a bad idea. I guess this is why nobody uses them any more.

Bad fuel, clogged filter, plugged cat, and bad ECU are the fake news of the auto world internet. It seems like these diagnoses get thrown out on every problem.

I predicted this about 5 years ago. This thread is why VW will not import a T6.1 to the US. The people are still dreaming of a full Westy for $30K and that's not going to happen. The T3 wasn't a sales ...

Typically on fuel change conversions, people do it but do not do the proper paperwork. Thus it will not be "diesel exempt". You can get away with it in non emissions counties in the US but w ...

Assuming that Eurovans are treated and kept like they are a prized possession is incorrect. VW sold them to regular people who treat them no different than any other car. What you need to find is some ...

You have an internal issue. At this point, it would be spitballing as to why.

As suggested, the Valvoline will work fine. If you have a rebuilt trans, then the clutches will be Exedy and the pistons will be whoever makes them here in the US. With that, you don't have to use the ...

Also, one of the relays right by the climate controls is the Park and neutral relay. So if it's bad, it'll never crank over. It should have 175 on it.
