Have you fixed your starting problem yet?

It has been below zero here too had to leave the charger on for an hour before it would crank over. My battery is probably 2 years old. I would check the main ground and recheck your connections. You can bring your battery to the place you got it to have them do a load test on it.

Are your jumper cables heavy duty? Is it below zero where you are? Did you try to bump up the rpms on the other car while starting?  If the starter is new, the key is engaging the solinoid, all wires and connections are good from the battery, and battery terminals are clean and tight I would say battery. If you are careful and know what you are doing you could try jumping hot at the starter that would eliminate the possibility of a bad wire or connection.

The maf would have nothing to do with that. When you jump start it try to connect the ground jumper somewhere on the engine.

I would try to jump start it with some good cables. I have had a few new batteries with bad cells. The voltage can be okay and not have the amperage to crank the engine. Also check your ground wires. If your battery is new it should be warrantied.

Did you have to replace the tensioner and the belt?
I replaced the belt.

You need to remove the bell housing and torque converter to get to the lower chain and guides. There is no point in doing half the job. You would be using more time and effort to do half the job half as well. Some people pull the front end off and drop the trans. I believe pulling the engine is easier and gives you the opportunity to resolve other engine issues you may have. It is not easy by any means but considering the price of a chain job in a vw shop it is not a bad investment of time if you like turning wrenches.

This is exactly what I have.  30-60 seconds and it's over.  Do we think that this will cause problems in general driving too not just when cold?  Also, I had a bunch of oil in my intake a while back.  Are these related?  If the combi is bad will I definitely have a code? ]

I am amazed it does not have a pending code with the way it misfires. Do you get any fuel smell at the exhaust? I would put the fuel pressure gauge on it and let it set overnight to see if there is a leakdown problem. Also double check the vac line to the fuel regulator. The misfire could be the residual fuel in the cylinder burning off. Short term fuel trim numbers won't be much help until the o2 sensors heat up and start to cycle. That could be why there is no pending code because the problem goes away before it goes in to closed loop. If that is the situation I would guess you long fuel trim will be okay.

Nothing will clean up old rims better than clr (calcium  lime rust remover), a tooth brush, and a scotch brite pad.
Buffers and compounds have come a long way since the 1980's. I recently retired my old body grinder style buffer with the lambswool and terrycloth bonnets. The high speed electric orbital with foam pads are amazing. I have burned a few paintjobs with my old buffer, it can take years to master a buffer with the lambs wool pad running  full speed on freshly painted steel. The new electric orbital are soo forgiving and simple to use. The best analogy I can give is a comparison with gas welding and a mig.  And the newer compounds have improved equally. With newer compounds you can go from 1000grit wet sand to a high polish in a single step with out using multiple compounds, glazing, and swirl remover. The velcro pads make changes quick and easy and the varible speed make it perfect for buffing, polishing, and waxing.

If the handle sticks in when it freezes remove the handle and load the pivot and spring with white lithium  grease. Also trim back the gasket around the spring a bit.

Interior! / Door lock actuator
« on: October 02, 2017, 06:47:43 PM »
The slider door lock actuator is powered through the three pin contact on the leading edge of the door. These contacts can corrode  internally and prevent the slider door lock actuator from working. You can check continuity from the connector to the pins. If the two screws are removed the contact assembly can be taken off and opened to clean the contact points.
If an actuator fails when a door is locked all the doors will cycle and unlock. The door with the bad actuator motor will lock all the door properly, but you will not hear the motor. The motor windings  can be tested for continuity, with this motor the problem was obvious and I simply cleaned and lubricated  the armature.

You can just adhere it with some weather strip and body molding  adhesive.

[/quoteThanks ! I will look for some at the autoparts store today, good thing those little blue grommets i bought were cheap !
This is what I used, 3m emblem and trim adhesive, it was about $6.00. Just adhere the chrome to the rubber then stick the rubber with three spots around  where the posts  were.
