    Hi I topped up my oil the other day, as it was on the bottom marker. Just enough to get it about 1/2 way. I checked the level the next day and it was WAY over - like 5 times over the Max marker. So I let some oil out of the sump. No matter how much I was letting out, the level remained very...

    Just got my 1974 beetle 1600cc running and took it for a 10/15 minute drive, the generator light came on for 30 seconds at a junction and when pulling away went out. As well as this about 10 minutes into the journey the oil light came on for roughly the same time and went out again. Could this...

    Might be a stupid question, but does it matter if I get a two wire or single wire oil temp sender?

    I've just drained the oil on a 1600 aircooled engine, removed the sump plate to change the filter and there were (what look like) a number of fragments from small broken discs. I can only describe them as looking like crushed black polo mints, but maybe a bit smaller. Any ideas what these could...

    fired up my van today for the first time in few years and it reminded me of a problem that it has that has confused me. the engine is a 1600 single port, and it leaks oil quite a bit, i'm 99% certain it's the rear crank seal as i rushed refitting the engine a while ago and i think i damaged it...

    I am running a type 3 engine with the different dipstick tube and shorter dipstick so my dipstick vs the VDO dipstick looked like this... ...quite a big difference as you can see. Even the stock type 1 dipsticks are a substantial amount shorter than the VDO sender. It was originally...
