Re: 2.5T AWD - got a bearing sound/ whining noise underneath

Hey guys, look at the pics in this thread. I put in a new collar, said a prayer and have yet to hear back from it. I did not think it would last and figured on doing the weld fix. My wife has put a lot of miles on it since and reports no issues. Apparently there was enough left of the splines on the...

Re: Engine Fitment Question

Zap it apart with my impact and haul the pieces home. I need the trans, flywheel and subframe. Everything else is just in my way. If I were you I would try to just use the head. These lower ends usually hold up.

Re: Engine Fitment Question

I recently parted a 96 N/A wagon for the 5 speed. You're welcome to the head or the whole motor if you want it. Easy get, the body is gone and it's sitting on the subframe outside my shop door where the air line will reach. I drove it here, but it didn't run all that well. Condition-wise it's a rebu...

I have a 5spd 95 GLT wagon I'm using for a donor car for a manual swap. Motor needs rebuilt but is all there.

Re: Detroit Axle rebuilt steering racks

I just got lower control arms and inner and outer tie rods from them for a 2000 Jetta. Quality seems good.

Re: 2004 XC70 occasional shudder under part throttle

My wife said it is "doing it again", so I pulled the angle gear unit yesterday thinking the splines were not good enough to last with the new collar. I was pleasantly surprised to find no metal and splines still intact so I put it back together. Guess I should have driven it myself first. I'll have ...

Re: Herman and Operation 30MPG

Well. Herman blew his power steering rack on Sunday. It was a weird sensation. I've had power steering go out, but that's a slow gradual type of thing. This was a sudden loss of power steering. Funny thing is that I was mid turn when it went. Hahaha :lol: I felt really bad as I was delivering some ...

Re: General Tips for DIY Head Gasket Replacement - 99 s70 na Topic is solved

Those compression readings sure do look like a head gasket failure. It’s a big labor job, but it’s stupid labor Document everything with Picture Notepad Plastic bags labeled with sharpie referenced to notes If you measure and note each fastener with size and length, you can ID any leftover parts.
