Just bought a 99 1.8t in excellent shape, 64,000m, and decided to slowly perform maintence. I decided to get Auto RX which I will start when I receive. Today, I bought a K&N filter and put it in. Oh My god!! I pulled out the original filter, it had "98" stamped on it and about 1 ton of dirt. :crazy:
I paln on doing the following:

1. Replace fuel filter.
2. Auto RX
3. Cabin Filter
4. New Plugs
5. TT DV 710 valve
6. Transmission oil change- although not sure
7. AND of course the timimg belt

Any other suggestions?

I'd swap the braided vacuum hoses for silicone ones. The braided ones tend to get brittle over time and can fail. I'd also check the L shaped hose by the coolant tank.

seafoam chip

I did put some seafoam in the gas and engine oil. I was thinking Neuspeed 1.0 bar chip. How is SpeedTuningUSA chip from Oliver? Thanks for the responses.
