    HELP!- MK5 VW GTI no start after HPFP and Intake cam replaced

    I could be wrong, because I can not find it now, however I thought being one tooth off would not cause an impact, but would cause a non-compression issue? Either way check the timing of the chain.

    Misfire on mk5 fsi

    Make sure to check all your vacuum lines, a vacuum leak will cause all kinds of misfire conditions. The age of these cars are making the vacuum lines fragile, I had the brake booster vacuum line fall apart when I touched it last week.

    Need help solving clunk noise!

    Check your sway bar end links, if the joints are not moving smoothly they will also make a clunking noise. When this noise occurs it will sound like it coming from the subframe and also from the front strut tower.

    Changing out FSI timing chain.....loaner tools

    I believe it maybe a good idea to change out the timing chain and tensioner. Does anyone here have the proper tools, willing to loan out or rent. I hate to buy a one time use tool and the cheap ones seem dicey at best.

    MK5 GTI on the Cheap

    Only one way to really install this mount. I won't pretend to know how all the forces react with this mount, but the aluminum member has come loose from the bushing and is in contact with the transmission. ( Yes, a lot a clunking sounds ) When I first saw this I thought the bolt was loose, but...

    Yes, you are correct, this part was a cheap part, that came with a engine mount kit, which I need to enter an entry about. The part is Chinese made and I just received a Czechoslovakian part to replace it.

    MK5 GTI on the Cheap

    This past year I took the opportunity to join the grounds crew at the local minor league baseball team. It was a chance to be able to get a better insight to the game I have loved over the years. So this vastly ate into my free time and I neglected this post. Obviously the GTI was mostly used as...
