Hi I got a passat -99 1.8 (thats pretty slow ).. I have noticed that the breaks is not what they should be... its not hard to push down the pedal but it travels a bit towards the floor and it doesnt seem to give any direct response in deceleration... However if I press and hold the break pedal and then after a short while quickly releases the foot and tries to break again there is no resistance what-so-ever..
well I wouldnt call it pump them up but thats what I do... so now when I think about it maybe I should make another bleeding of the system... When I bleed the system I do it in correct order (RRRL FRFL).. I do not use the traditional pumping-method but instead I apply pressure to the break cylinder via a hose from the spare tire... that should work just as well.. or One problem that I had the last
Sure this can help you guys too. I made this on vwvortex.com Quick and to the point the reason to change your brake fluid is to save your ass Brake fluid is a hydroscopic which means it attracts water big deal right Wrong through the brake lines and through your resevoir brake fluid attracts water water has a really low boiling point the more water in your lines the lower your boiling point. So you
What are folks using for brake fluid - DOT4 or something special like a synthetic On our B5 I looked at the brake fluid and it is green. Its clean so I do not think it is green from being dirty. I have not seen green fluid before. All input welcome
is marketing bull pure and simple. That said Valvoline and Castrol LMA are quality DoT-4 compliant fluids. Ive used both with good results. 2. DoT-5 is a silicone based fluid that is NOT COMPATABLE with glycol based fluids. YOU CANNOT MIX THEM. DoT-5 is inappropriate to use in any application unless a. You have completely flushed out all the brake fluid from the vehicle b. The ABS system supports
So it has been way too long since Ive had the brakes bled on my car. WAY TOO LONG Anyhow this time I want to do it myself. What is the general concensous about which brake fluid to use Remembering that this is a 5 spd AEB so the clutch is also involved in the common fluid resavoir. Any funky tricks anyone knows The Best fluid to use (high end stuff) Anything else Thanks guys and gals
Get some Valvoline Synpower fluid some Speedbleeders and optionally a vacuum and use this DIY procedure. I ended up doing the clutch manually since I couldnt find the electric pump he used and the larger container I modified my manual vacuum pump with would start collapsing before enough vacuum built up to suck the fluid out of the slave cylinder.
driving along clutch and pedal started to sink to the point i could not put it in gear. need some help to diagnose and repair
Simply topping off the reservoir isnt going to get the clutch pedal to pump back up. If a master or slave cylinder failed youll need to replace the bad part. If the fluid level was low and you sucked some air into the hydraulic system or if you replace parts of the system itll need to be bled. Tips for bleeding clutch fluid
I had been suggested in my road-racing thread that I should be using dot4 brake fluid in my car if I plan to road race or auto x. Im assuming these cars came stock w dot3 or dot2 but am hoping its forwards compatible w dot4 Is there a preferred style of dot4 for these cars or will any of the high end manufacturers work

Alright Ive been itching since I got my little under powered 2.5L and swapping in something more like me. Im thinking a 4 cylinder
diesel. I know the cummins 4bt is a pretty common swap in but theres still too many gray areas. First I was reading a lift is needed to clear the oil pan and a body lift is needed to clear the hood. Second is all of the drive train lenghts and what I would really need to
turbo spool up is awesome and I have not even done any power mods to it. I can wait to blow some black smoke in it. I have a feeling this Jeep has the potential to be faster than my Jeep with the 350. The Cummins swap was for sure ALOT more expensive. Its not easy to find a decent 4bt for less tha 2k unless you have connections and....I would stay away from he Izuzu and definitly dont touch a volkswagen

My friends at Baer brakes got into the business by making a bracket to install C-4 calipers on Camaros. They ended up actually reducing the piston area and had a smaller pad. I normally use a 1.125 master on cars. Because the C-4 calipers are so small I have to downsize even with a Hydroboost to 1 on Baer braked Camaros. I have rebuilt the C-4 masters and they for the price are cheap almost volkswagen
