Re: High mileage parts failures: What should I look out for?

I have a MAF from my old '98 T5, with very few miles on it. Bosh, I believe. You can but that in your stash, doesn't take up much room. If you are in the Salisbury area, stop by, or I can send it to you.

Good start and low miles. Fix the little things now and save for the bigger ones. The TB is a big and important one now, for age not miles, if it hasn't been done.

If you have a smooth concrete garage floor, large, less-greasy pieces of cardboard also serve nicely as a low-profile, low-cost creeper.

My '99 with only 173,000 miles on it quit working the way yours sounds like. Took the one from my '98 with 331,000 miles on it and it works great. Go figure.
I will tear the other one down some day and see if I can figure the problem. Until then, I have a good fan running.

Thanks for trying. The bottom pin has a plastic part sticking out at 90 degrees and that keeps it from coming out clean. My floor mat covers the foot rest, so until I order something, it will remain as is.
