the drain plug in in the bottom flat of the pan. it is also the fill port. you pump it in til it begins to drain, insert plug. connect VCDS and find the MVB for transmission fluid temperature. start the car and run it through the gears. with engine running, remove drain plug and let the fluid temp come up. correct fluid level will begin to drain at approx 40* fluid temp.

sounds like a pain in the butt. guess ill see what happens. going from the front of the car to the back. so control arms and brakes are first.
i got the front end taken off tonight. one of the hex bolts for lower timing cover was too far away for my hex sockets. i got those, and the 12 point/triple square for my birthday a few days early from my parents today.

To be clear, the smell was present before I had the heat on, but turning the heat on brings the smell into the cabin. I ran it about 70 miles last night and there was no smell, then I went to the bank this morning and noticed the smell in the parking lot...hoped it was someone else, but nope.

I'm not seeing anything I'd consider unusual, certainly no leaks.

Should the upper radiator hose be soft/flaccid when hot? I drove it about an hour, then left it running and poked around. The hose is soft, and the radiator cap threads are crusty - low pressure?

This is probably unrelated, I can also see a line in the reservoir where the coolant was originally green. About 6 months ago the dealership topped it with red and it's sitting on top (oil/vinegar type idea).

if you're smelling it, it's leaking somewhere.

no. it's not holding pressure because it's got a leak somewhere, or it's been venting pressure because the system is getting plugged up.

if the coolant is mixed you need to have it chemically flushed, very thoroughly, (think 2-3 times) before that **** turns into elmers glue somewhere. the pink stuff is far better in every aspect.

why in the blue hell did you take the whole radiator support off and not just service position?

Dude. ive never done this or anything like it before. i really couldnt see how to get it into service position. taking the support off really isnt that bad, and its making the job very easy.

found a cracked vc gasket,
and for anyone wondering about 1 piece head light swaps. plugs 100% arent the same, and the fender needs to be cut.there was talk of this earlier in thread

annnddd. i got a question... why does everyone say that the water pump is turned by timing belt?

service position is is when you pull the 7 or 8 T45's and couple T30's that hold the core support on. then it hangs off the bumper arms, radiator hoses, snub mount, and harness. it gives you approx 8 extra inches at the top to work.

it is on 1 piece headlight cars.

n00b question. snub mount. is that the rubber bushing thing on the bottom of the radiator support that goes into the, front of the car?

Okay boys..... My VR6 was running really strong. Started leaking oil but I gradually put more in it. I coudn't find the leak. Recently it leaked all of the oil overnight. I put more oil in it but it wont start, it's making a really nasty sound when it trys to run. Check engine light is NOT on though. What do?

timing belt, water pump, tstat, coolant flush and 1 piece headlights / hid's done. took longer then expected lol

hid/1 piece swap went very smooth. crazy how bright hid and projector is. i didnt have to cut or splice any wires either

how long should i expect to take to do control arms, and front brakes? or the rear axle seals/drain and fill?

atleast an hour each per control arm, 1.5 or 2 for the brakes, 3 each for the rear axle seals and atleast 2 for the drain and fill

I really don't know if your serious or not.seems like such a long time. Well..guess not enough time today.

Also mildly contemplating skipping ctrl arms until spring and do coils at same time,but i've got a front passenger clunk .for most part only happens going forward with brakes applied at low speed...

i gave you book time on the arms and slightly adjusted book time on everything else since you're working on the ground.

working on a lift with my tools i can knock out a set of control arms in like 30 minutes.it's only 4 bolts to get the strut out and then a bolt a piece for the arms.

alright cool. and yeah, ive got an air hammer, and an impact. but i have a crappy craftsman impact. my buddy let me borrow his snap on impact guns. so hopefully that will make control arms easier. gonna do them on tuesday.

oh.. and through whole timing belt ordeal... everything worked great. except i lost a clip that holds the radiator hose to radiator on the top. and i lost the 2 brackets that hold the condenser to the radiator. i fabricated some condenser mount, but im having a ***** of a time with the hose clip. looks like car quest will have one monday. under a vw part number.

as long as you didn't lose it behind the timing cover.
