      My understanding is that everything is suspect for leaking. That would be the heater core too.

      New parts are always assumed to be good parts. The biggest fear from mechanics. That is why I've always believed in diagnosis. If the diagnosis is sound, follow it. I went through 4 brand new AMG...

      Thousands.

      Rarely does anyone rebuild an engine because it costs too much. Rebuilding would be boring the cylinders, new pistons, possibly machining the crank, new bearings, complete valve grind...

      I do not know the answer to your question but most fuel filters are now located in the fuel tank. Most are lifetime and no longer are part of the maintenance schedule. Some are now part of the fuel...

      I'm in the middle of an 8V with the EA888 pistons. I'm using the EA113 Golf R rods. Block is bored and the aux shaft is machined. It's a slow build and do not have any real time line.

      If I recall,...

      The hydraulic lifters will bleed down and take awhile to fill up again. It will sound bad but if the engine was fine before it sat, it's probably fine now.

      Start it up, warm up the engine at...

      It's brakes. You must stop. You could kill someone if you have no clue what you are doing. Do yourself and everyone else a favor. Install the proper parts. If you can't afford it, save up till you...

      Valve lapping compound, allen sockets [6mm], hammer to force the socket into the bolt, pick to clean the socket, air nozzle to clean the socket, and I would not use any type of solvent to break them...

      That means you may never get above 30mph. That certainly would take more time to get to 300k

      What makes you think it's running lean?

      Try disconnecting the O2 sensor. If it shorts out, it will cause the engine to run rich and bog out.

      Usually O2 sensors seem to short out during their...

      I've never understood why people buy cheap. The Chinese love it. They'll sell you a six pack of the cheap junk.

      Buy OEM or better. Perform services on time, too early is a waste you your money....

      I think it's foolish to spend money on services too soon. That includes oil services. It's like changing tires when they are half worn out.

      That said, it's the other items that break the bank and...

      It's understandable because my BS meter is always in the red zone.

      As you figured out, there is no warm up regulator on an 88 Scirocco 16V.

      The fuel system is CIS-e and they all ran fairly well when they left the factory. I certainly would not touch that...

      I would replace the pads and rotors. It's highly likely the calipers may be sticking too. Once you get that done, maybe think about moving to a place that does not trash your car so much.

      That's...

      The stock engine had low compression. You could install a high compression engine. Try a 90-93 Cabriolet engine, but there are others too.

      An ABA engine is another option but there are a few more...

      It's machinist blue in a spray can. I would not doubt if it's just cheap blue spray paint in a fancy expensive can but it works for me.

      Machinist blue. It shows a contrast when you are machining. The pictures were during the modifications. All of it was removed before final assembly.

      Not certain why you are trying to find an answer to the problem when the mechanic is suppose to be the one to tell you that. You may be bringing your car to the wrong person.
