If it's a 2WD it's really better to drop the oil pan entirely. Then you can reach in behind the timing cover and push out. You can also put the pan on after the timing cover and have a nice clean...

It's on the inside of the housing, on the same fluid passage the oil filter threads onto.

I just put mine on dry. There's an o-ring in there too, make sure you replace it at the same time.

I always just ran a pair of sony speakers and a basic head unit that someone had thrown in the trash. IMO with a tiny little cab two speakers is really all you need. Don't get me wrong, I have a lot...

I started out with a cheap HF tap and die set several years ago. I still have it but now I also have a box full of taps/dies and their associated drill bits. Almost all of them are either M6x1,...

That's a really good point, Bama. The antenna usually has it's own ground, and the plugs are pretty much universal. It'd be easy enough to reach around under there and see if it cuts out if you...

I wouldn't be surprised if it's an issue with the ground. I had a similar problem with mine and was able to fix it by just grounding it directly to the frame of the dash instead of running it back...

I'd start by just trying to repair the threads with a tap, fingers crossed they're not too far gone. Once you get the camshaft bearing caps off an M8x1.25 bottoming tap is what you need. If that...

My bad, I had meant to say the oil pan but forgot a word. I know some newer VW/Audi engines have plastic oil pans and it's a common mod to swap it out for an aftermarket steel one.

Weirdly enough...

Definitely a wise investment. Is the pan one of those plastic ones by chance? I know they sell metal aftermarket ones for VW products. I haven't worked on one new enough to have one though.

I guess by that logic I have a hybrid chainsaw since it burns gas and oil.

Advance also sells Purolator filters which are an excellent choice. I've always used NAPA filters. Since we have 3 cars...
