  1. Fuel starvation. I should have mentioned it was on 1/4 tank. Let it sit for an hour and it fired right up. Thanks, ninjas.
  2. After it died, coolant immediately started overflowing out of the reservoir. Is there a link on "how to" remove said box without unnecessary removal of other objects? Is there a link with a "how to" remove this the easy way? Is it a major ordeal if this is the case? Also, upon dying, water rapidly filled the chargecooler reservoir and overflowed. You might be on to something.
  3. 1994 S4. Coolant light was on. I had it backed up on ramps as I was troubleshooting a water leak. I ended up replacing the hose from the top of the chargecooler to the bottom of the chargecooler water reservoir which was clearly leaking. I filled the reservoir (still on the ramps) and started the engine. As it sucked the water, I kept filling the reservoir. For about 4 seconds, it idled rough and died. Will not start. Fuses good, starter turns over, temps were good (I drove it every day this week with no problems other than that coolant light). Inertia switch is in. Even with full reservoirs (main and chargecooler), the coolant light stayed on until it died. Temperatures were cool as I had only backed it out of the garage and onto ramps. Freescan isn't giving me any codes, but the engine isn't running. Any ideas?
  4. That how-to worked flawlessly. Excellent idea with the paper clips, Justin. I only suffered one cut knuckle on this one. Fortunately, it was only the driver side (U.S. model) that was having motor problems. That passenger side will be a proper bollocking when the time comes.
  5. Thanks, ninjas. Ordered it from Rodney Dickman. Trevor, my daily driver is a 99 Jetta TDI with 260K on it.
  6. Where did you get this kit, and what is it called? Better yet, a link? Mine started failing 3 days ago.
  7. My mirror had been vibrating for a few months, then it started shaking. After a 3 minute review, I found the problem. When I loosened the small Allen under the collar, I was able to wiggle the mirror off of the mount with very little effort. Where do I get this part and what is it called? http://i21.photobuck...Borzoi2/058.jpg
  8. After further review, the slave is leaking. Simple fix, I suppose.
  9. Thanks, ninjas. Just air in the line. I could not find a leak anywhere. This is the first time I've flushed that fluid and I've owned the vessel for 2 years. It has the braided hose. Works like new again.
  10. Thanks, Andy. I should also note that the clutch doesn't fully release, even when the pedal is to the floor. The car doesn't roll on a small incline when in gear and clutch pedal all the way down (engine not running). It does roll in neutral, though.
  11. Like the title says. I have checked the clutch master cylinder and it's about 4cm from the top. Car drives fine once I get going. It was fine on the way to work today, but when I went to lunch I had very hard time getting it into gear at the traffic light. That's when the clutch pedal started hesitating about halfway up before springing back to my foot. Could it be the slave? If so, where is it? I'm at work and can't be crawling under the car at the moment.
  12. So I'm OK? As soon I even slightly pressed the throttle (car not moving) the needle would come up.
  13. Changed the oil yesterday. Went for a short spin. Got caught in a construction zone for 30 minutes. 75 degrees outside. The water temp was reading 90. When I was stopped and idling, the oil pressure was dropping almost to the redzone, but immediately came back up to normal (centre of guage) when I started moving, even at slow speeds. Normal?
