    So I was looking to get Weather Tech floor liners for the front only - $110.00. Granted it's Texas and usually don't have more than rain to worry about. I volunteer for Meals On Wheels deliveries - my own dedicated route on Tuesdays and sometimes fill in for others. Mud is more my concern than...

    So I got a coolant leak that is almost certainly coming from the water pump (or O-ring). So essentially, I am preparing to do a TB job without actually replacing the TB since I did that about 50K miles ago (Aug 2012). Since I'm not replacing the TB, it follows that I won't have the specialty...

    Anyone know of a good alternative to Dum-dum (trade name) to seal inner door panels? I bought the 3M product (3M strip caulk - pn#08578 60ft / 1ft strips) for a repair I did this summer. It does a great job but it's pretty nasty to work with in warm weather. Also wonder how messy it would be...

    But of course, another PCV system question. 2000 1.8T ATW with almost 250k miles. I'm getting oil leaks from all over the place around the valve cover gasket. It looks like the 3-way breather connector has a nice hole in it and the PCV is probably clogged up. I already have a new PCV valve...

    Just wanted to relay a finding of mine. When I got the exhaust done on my car, one of the techs accidentally kinked the N75 to wastegate line. What I found was that the turbo spooled way faster (obviously) and as the line pressurized some air would find it's way to the wastegate and it would...
