I had a coolant leak recently, I discovered that it was the "O" ring on the resevoir cap, cheap and easy to replace.

HUGE HAIL
Storm Damages Up to 30,000 New Volkswagens

A storm last Sunday with hail the size of pingpong balls left close to 30,000 brand-new cars damaged. The dents and dings might cost hundreds of millions of euros, but Volkswagen is thankfully insured.


Hail damage might cost Volkswagen's insurers hundreds of millions of euros.
While millions in northern Germany watched Spain defeat Italy Sunday in the Euro 2008 quarterfinals, a brief but violent storm outside was pelting 30,000 Volkswagen automobiles with hail the size of pingpong balls.


The vehicles were parked in the open in the northwestern German town of Emden, one of Europe's three main vehicle-transportation ports. Each year about 1 million vehicles either enter or leave the city's port, according to the Volkswagen Web site. The company employs around 7,900 people there at a plant producing the company's Passat models.

Company spokesman Christoph Adomat told the Süddeutsche Zeitung that a significant proportion of the 30,000 vehicles parked outside had suffered chipped paint or dings, although no windshields were broken. A VW spokesman told the Dow Jones Newswires that around 100 extra workers were being sent to Emden for a quality check on all the vehicles.

"We need to make certain that all customers receive a car that is absolutely in good working order," Adomat told the Associated Press, adding that the company was insured against hail damage.

Although the company has not released an estimate of the damages incurred, according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung it could reach the hundreds of millions of euros.

I posted this in April, it might sort you out....

Hi Guys,

Just had the ECU checked in the UK, turns out that there is nothing wrong with it. He charged me GBP£ 30 plus £8 for postage, I will repeat that "Thirty Pounds". Standard Charge is £90.00 with no charge if unable to repair.

Compare that with an estimate from a prominent car electric company on the North Strand, Dublin 3.... "Between Four and Six hundred Euro, and we will have to send it away, but that includes postage....."

€ 400 - € 600 !

The mind boggles !

Well Recommended, friendly and efficient.

Where is the Crankshaft Sensor ?

I've a 1996 (1995) VW Corrado 2Ltr 8 Valve ADY Engine Code with an occasional intermittant ignition problem, at this stage I've had the ECU bench tested, Replaced the Distributor and coil, changed the relays, reseated all the engine sensors, and checked the earth's and of course the ignition leads and plugs.

The last item I can think of is the crankshaft rotation sensor, but I can't find it. And before someone tells me its not fitted with one, it is, because when you disconnect the hall sender the engine still runs.

According to Annesley motors the engine is fitted to the MK3 Golf GTI, Cabriolet to 98 and the Sharan.

Any expertiese out there ?

Thanks,

Brendan

Hi Ger,

I will try that. ECU is on its way back from the UK, having been checked for faults, its not the problem, there is nothing wrong with it. I changed the Ignition switch. Frustration.......!

Keep it Standard...........VW pay their world class engineers and designers maybe 100k p/a to design the cars to look good. To my knowledge the G60 Steelies were originally "Winter Wheels" to save the alloys. They are cheap, so not much to loose to try them.

Hi Guys,

Need Help,

Corrado 2L 8V (ADY Engine Code) (DIGIFANT/SIMOS) 1995 model with Siemens ECU VW Part Number 097 906 025 D Siemens P/N 5WP4 163 and what looks like a VAG-CAM socket on the panel above the shelf and under the glove box on the passenger side.

I have an intermittant ignition problem and have substituted Relays, the coil, checked and reseated all the engine sensors, plugs, checked the hall sender, which when disconnected the engine still runs, distributor, and all the usual suspects.

Symptoms;

Engine starts as normal, runs for and drives as normal and then just dies, no splutters just a cut in the ignition, it may or may not restart immediately when I turn the key, if it restarts it cuts out 2 or 3 times and then runs as normal. I'm afraid to drive it more than a few miles from the house at a time for obvious reasons.

I'm in Artane, Dublin 5.

Anyone got any ideas or VAG-COM locally ?

Thanks,

Brendan

Just renewed my insurance on the Corrado G60, fully comprehensive € 390, I couldn't believe it. I phoned and verified that they were not insuring me on a Cordoba rather than a Corrado, and I verified that it was a G60......life is good. The 2Ltr 8V was over €520 last year.Those prices are I fully comp and include all the extras, bonus protection, handling fee etc.....Talk to the AA guys

Sends Shivers down my spine, must have been a horrible feeling pulling out the interior....just brought in my 3rd Corrado (10 year love affair !) but the first one I did a HPI check on.



About 10 years back, a friend and I had a pair of 1981 MK1 Red Golf's, nothing so exotic as a 16v or even a GTI, a pair of 1.1 petrol with Single carb! Remember this was pre Celtic Tiger....



We used to wonder why his had a sunroof and mine hadn't, so one day he decided to investigate to find that the A pillar and the roof to the leading edge of the sunroof was yellow while the rest of the car was red...Cars cost 500 quid at the time, so he kept driving it for another few months the city before scrapping it. The sunroof was there for years, who knows who did it....



A lesson to us all, thanks for sharing.
