My '82 diesel Rabbit pickup is leaking fuel near the cold start advance lever arm on the fuel pump. This vehicle is a stick shift, non turbo, and no air type. Question: Can the pump be repaired or will is new unit required?

Thanks in advance, John

Had a catastrophic service error made on our VW 2000 Jetta Disel TDI. Owner of the shop will not accept responsibility for the 3000+ dollars in repair. Would really appreciate a detailed task analysis of how a disel timing belt should be changed. I have to go to small claims court to get fair treatment. I have gone the Better Business Bureau and the Automotive complaint board. California apparently has no or few disels and this man didn't know what he was doing. 20 teeth were skipped and the damage was unreal. Thanks for the help. I am new here a CT transplant.

I just got an 86 jetta turbo deisel and love it, was told the transaxle oil was checked at last oil change, aparantly wasn't, went dry, siezed, i removed it and replaced the needle bearing, good for another 600,000 km. They obviously built them to last but will check my levels myself...

Rattles, noisey interior in your VW Rabbit/Caddy? I found that after chasing many rattles in the cab of my caddy that the easiest solution was to cut up a camping foam pad and pack this is every nook and cranny under the dash. The difference in the interior noise was amazing. It really quieted down the ride and engine noise AND rattles!

I have a 96 jetta diesel running poorly. It's hard starting and smokes badly and never levels out. Have repaced injectors and timing belt. Have been told to change injection pump but am not convinced this is the problem as I can see the odd bubble of air in the line when you take it from higher rpm to low idle. cannot find any leak in fuel lines,filter connections,or leaks at pump.any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello , great site..I am interested in buying (or assembling) a diesel vanagon and wanting to convert it to Bio-diesel...Have talked to one friend that converted a big ram truck and a mechanic that works on VW's and both said that the old diesels are realy weak ("dogs" ) and the new ones (say for dropping into a Vanagon) are too computer oriented , complicated to put into another vehicle.....Does anyone out there have any opinions about this.?... if you have a diesel vanagon should you just be prepaired to go up hills realy slow ? Has anyone ever heard of putting in say a Mercedies engine into a Vanagon?

Realy pleased to find this site and I will be browsing archive I'm sure..........cheers.

I just purchased a 1979 1.5l diesel Rabbit which had a blown head gasket. I installed a complete rebuilt head and was under the impression that this was a non-interference motor so, I was careless with the timing belt alignment. Subsequent valve/piston damage (minor) occoured. I replaced the connecting rod berrings to be safe. Now there is a knock that is audible only after the enging has been under load for ~3-4 minutes at moderate RMP's. At idle the knock fades away in ~2 minutes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

i have recently fitted a new engine in my VW Transporter 02 model, but i'm having great difficulty starting it the problem appears to be air, but im not a mecanic so im unsure whether that actually is the problem. I'm not getting diesel to the injectors although it is at the pump,
How long can it take to flush the air thru and is there any quick method of flushing the air thru?
The engine is a 1.9turbo diesel and the pump is the standard Bosch pump.
Any info would be a help, thanks.

I have an 85 1.8L gas Cabriolet with a with a busted rod, that I want to convert it to a diesel. I've been looking at wrecked 85 rabbit with what I believe to be a 1.6 diesel. It looks like if got the whole car so I could use all of the brackets, fuel system, transaxel,and wiring, would be the best way perform this extensive transplant. The rabbit is in the junkyard so I don't have the luxury of comparing the cars with a calipers, and ruler. Are 5speed diesel transaxels the same as Gas ones or are they geared different because of slower rpms. All the engine mount points look similar to me, and I don't mind doing a little cuting and welding, but I don't want to deal with major frame or firewall differences,I would like to make sure before I drag an other junker home. What other VW's diesels will work? perhaps a turbo jetta? Any creative and/or constructive inputs would be greatly appreciated.

Great Website, Keep up the good work.
I recently had a fuel delivery problem with my 81 Pickup Diesel, the screen inside the fuel tank was plugged, caused lack of fuel and air into the system, it might be overlooked but can cause expensive damage.
The tank will need to be removed for this repair, if your injection pump failed recently, change the filter in the tank in addition to the filter in the engine compartment.

HI there. I have a 1981 VW Jetta Diesel. It is having some cooling problems. It hasn't overheated yet, but it heats up fast and there is a small leak in the area of the water pump and/or thermostat area. What is the best way to diagnose this problem and how do you tell if the water pump is going out.(The belts are very noisy until 3rd gear)

Sorry for the gap, the guestbook was broken for about 5 months...
