    I'll preface this by saying I know I need to replace my pcv system. But a $54 kit plus a $10 vented oil cap is far more reachable for me right now than a $120-$140 pcv kit and the vcg kit. I'll take the risk of having to do it again. With that said, I'm about to order my parts, but I...

    I've read all I could find, but am still unclear on: 1) Does sealant really have to be used on the half moon or the CCT gasket, and if so, exactly where ? I'd rather not use sealant unless its really needed, because its going be be very difficult to maneuver the gasket into that tight...

    Here is the DIY on PCV system fixing on ATW 1.8T, 2000:wrench:. I took some pictures while I was fixing my car for PCV clogged and leaky pipe and other leakings (half moon at the back of the engine, CCT gasket, front cam o-ring gasket and valve cover. If your engine oil is reducing look for...

    Hi All I have a problem with my half moon gaskets leaking. Apparently VW have a 'special tool' that can fix this problem easily without taking the cams/timing belt/the world off. I dug up some old threads regarding this problem and someone else has used this 'special tool'. When I went to...
