Is that before or after we make sure he's not resistant to fire?

your tdi wasn't a 1997 with what appear to be the original spark plugs in it!

fwiw....it runs pretty good now...but it ran pretty good before....well....until it didn't. Wondering if with new plugs and wires I MIGHT get my mileage up past 28???????

edit: It took Wayne an hour to get the old part out....still at his rates it was a HE!! of a lot cheaper than a new head or even head removal for repair.....

That's how your engine lets you know when it's time to change the plugs.

What, did they skip that in your auto 101 class?

I'd have the blinker fluid checked too.

That it wasn't. (D = diesel, spark plugs need not apply :cool: )

Think the service manual calls for replacement of the muffler bearings at the same time so if it comes up, it's legit.

It probably has a bad Knuter Valve too. They usually go out about the same time as the spark plugs.
Muffler bearings are next.

I've been called worse. Bringer of Darkness, The Oncoming Storm, Destroyer of Worlds.... witch is mild. Such is life among those with a narrow view of the cosmos. You will never know the trouble I saved you from in the alternate time line where you did not have to turn back.

Worse than a little car repair, on that you can rely.
