  1. MK3
    So I recently bought a 1994 MK3 jetta in July. Had a slight problem with overheating, but that was a simple Tstat fix. No problem. Shortly after the front bracket broke. Fixed it (car still not overheating). A day after I fixed the bracket, she started to overheat. Not sure why. This was maybe...

EuroKreations just went out of business so I really don’t know how a nice delete is done. Any advice or pics to help me out? Especially with the dip where the rear bottoms sat into, so...

    Well I just happened to find this German turbocharger laying around my house, and was wondering if it would fit on a 1997 Jetta GLS 2.0L 8v engine? Just curious! I believe it's used on 1.8T, but I'm not too sure. It says it's a K03 from the model number on it. What do you guys think about...

    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...

    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 my MK3 for nine years with really no major issues. I ruined my own engine but loved the car so much I got a rebuilt and warrantied engine with less miles in 2012. I've since brought the car out of state to NC where the weather has created a whirlwind of problems. I've had three tows...

    On Saturday my radiator hose ripped which cause my 95 gl jetta to over heat , so i bought a new one and after installing it my car still overheated due to cheap clamps that came with the hose. i towed it back to my home in fear of causing more damage if I'd attempt to drive back. Now my oil...

    Went to the store, on the way home heard a little pop. When got home saw a puddle of transmission fluid under the car which kept leaking pretty bad while the car ran. Got under the car and found the origin of the leak and took some pics. Looks like the seal came out or something like that. My...

    Sometimes when I would start my mk3 jetta the brake light would be half illuminated. The lights, wipers, and blower won't work. I would shut it off and turn it back on and the issue goes away. Lately, it started randomly doing it while driving. Everything but the engine stops working. I pull...

    Hello all, I've got quite the story on my 1995 Mk3 Golf. So when I bought the car in August of 2012 I was 16, knew nothing about cars, and had two friends who also knew nothing about cars that offered to work on some project car with me. Luckily for me my mom and a few other family friends...
