  1. 2004 GTI VR6 MK4 P2177 System too lean off idle bank 1

    Hi, I have a 2004 GTI VR6 and I haven't driven the car for about a year now.

  13. Repairing a coolant fitting to avoid buying a 150.00 dollar hose!!!

    After a couple years VW quit making the cooling system on an mk3 with T fittings and went to large expensive integrated radiator hoses. This is great if your car came with them already, but for those of us with the old style it can be really expensive to replace a broken fitting or worn hose...
