    Hey, to start with I have a used stock MKV Gti '08 for around 5.5 years now. Months ago I changed both headlight bulbs- the D2S HID's. Instead of taking the bumper off, I just decided to reach in from the engine bay and replace it with the help of a mirror, flashlight, and two other pairs of...
  2. MKIV GTI
    I own a mk4 gti 1.8t. I literally just had it fully tuned like 2 months ago. Since then I have had an o2 sensor go out(not what I'm concerned about) but I was wondering if that would some how make my cylinders misfire since it has to do with my fuel. I was just driving Into town for work and got...

    Hey guys I'm new here and need some input before I replace everything, I can start my car just fine but when I do the clutch will stay on the floor I can pull it back out by hand but it doesn't get any pressure back even when I try pumping it.

I don't even know where to start to look for the leak because this is my first car. Can you...
