  1. 1997 Jetta Exhaust dumps/straight pipe?

    MK3
    Well my car is fun to drive (even though it's not fast), but I wanna give it some sound! Since it's a 1997 I still have to get emissions tests on it so I'm pretty limited here. I was thinking of running a straight pipe (bypassing the catalytic converter and keep the muffler), but it goes to the...
  2. 1997 Jetta rattle under the car

    MK3
    Well my Jetta has always made a weird noise under the car. I'm pretty positive it is the heat shield that is doing that. Every time I hit 3,000 RPM it makes that noise, so it's harmonic for sure. Today another noise showed up under the car, this time it makes the noise when I'm in 1st gear and...

I've had a tune-up done and I've had the terminals on the computer cleaned and after that it worked for about a week. It rained again last night and...

    MK3
    sup everyone! I have a little issue. I've got a 1997 Golf that I bought about a year ago. It was running ok but the people that had it before me didn't take care of it properly.

  7. Should I have an Alarm Remote?

    MK3
    Hello, How do I know if my car originally came with an alarm remote (for activating/deactivating the alarm)? It is a 1997 VW Golf Jazz edition. It has a little red blinky light next to the lock on the drivers side and chirps when I lock the car with the key. Should I have a remote? If so...

  12. Engine died while driving: 1997 VW Golf 2.0 (Gas)

    MK3
    Hello, I'm hoping for suggestions on what could be wrong with my 1997 VW Golf. It has the 2.0 gasoline 4 cylinder engine. The car stalled out while I was exiting off the freeway at about 40mph and will not restart, even weeks after. The car turns over fine just like it always has and it has...
