Hdi90 Valeo clutch kit

After the 'Gate post' incident the old girl has been moved on and will shortly be off to a new life in the former Soviet Union. The new owner didn't want the clutch kit I bought last year. Everything is cheaper over there apparently. So, I have a Valeo 826033 3 piece kit surplus to requirement, I'll...

Re: 2 different cars, 2 oil changes, both came up short

Just looked up the 3.0tdi, 8.2l,,, better start saving.
I'm guessing that's just so Audi can achieve 2yr/20K service interval, at the expense of engine life of course.

I don't fill the TUD5 more than 1/2 on the stick.

Re: Glow plug anti-seize?

That looks just the job, too late though I'll have to make do with my not very Nickely Nickel paste.

I don't disagree but, Bear in mind that Diesel fuel has a higher energy density per volume than petrol. 11% according to Wikipedia. So when comparing Mpg figures knock 11% off the Diese...

Re: Sump 'crush' washers - a lesson learned

I have a stock of copper ones in both sizes, bought them from ebay for not much money some years ago but have used very few, if you tighten them sensibly you can use them several times. Don't know about torque, I just tighten them until they feel about right. Peter Mee too I changed a leaking coppe...

Re: Glow plug anti-seize?

500g tin of nickel paste arrived today.
9 quid off Ebay cheap enough for a lifetime supply.
Cheaper than a snapped glow plug that's for sure.

Re: Glow plug anti-seize?

Perhaps it's just V6 snobbery.

Recommended glow plug anti-seize Beru GKF01 (recommended by Beru that is)
Obviously made from the rarest alloy of unobtanium:
