    The Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread

    So, just wondering, do you guys have a set amount of mileage for doing a carbon cleaning or do you just wait until you get symptoms and then do it? I’ve got 101000 miles and have not done one. My engine seems to be running better than it was at 40,000 miles.

    What did you do to your MK6 today?

    I replaced it because of an oil leak. The diaphragm was fine with no squealing. But now I think the oil leak might be coming from my camshaft position sensor. I’m not getting any codes just a slow weeping oil leak. Maybe I should just look for a new gasket/o-ring. it's looking kind of like...

    2.0 tsi

    The 2.0 TSI engine is used in many Audi and Volkswagen platforms. Would a short block 2.0 tsi from any platform work in my 2.0 TSI golf mk6? My engine is working fine but I think I might get a back up short block to replace the inevitable end of my engine

    I didn't know about the dipstick test. I pulled mine and it started to run ruff. Put it back and everything smoothed out again. This is the one I got https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/audi-vw-breather-system-kit-genuine-vw-audi-522190

    What did you do to your MK6 today?

    I used VCDS cable to check timing chain stretch in celebration of 100,000 mi. The stretch is (-1.84 deg.) so I think I'm safe for another 20,000 mi. On 8/10/2020 (80,000 mi.) it was -1.4 deg. So ya I feel good.

    I put in these plugs today. Torqued to 22ft. lb. and gaped to 0.032". I did use a smear of that copper paste. The tips of my old plugs where dry and had like gray fuzz on them. I noticed that plugs #2 & #3 had oil above the thread line. Not on the threads themselves. Hopefully not an...

    EPC light and check engine light came on and car starts shaking, thoughts on what it could be?
