    I had a 1979 Audi 5000 with the five cylinder and it confuses people if they don't know anything about engines when you tell them you got a 5 cylinder LOL

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Bayles says:

    Another epic fail, you mention, but never did look at or verify fuel trims, did not verify crankcase ventilation vacuum, did not smoke test intake system. Your test of holding the throttle at 2k rpm is nonsensical, not in any service literature, and invalid. This diagnosis was completely about fuel trims and load ranges. You did not drive cycle long enough for the system to perform self test, and you failed to verify the repair.

    Ray this is a Mexican/American vw not a German vw or it would have been a 9 month project

    Poor bug needed a new snorkel

    Sometimes you have to be smarter than the hose. And you were.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Leach says:

    Where is your lithium spray to make the hose slide right on

    You should come to Oregon, I bought my 1.9 TDi in Florida as it was an absolute rarity, came here to see them on every single street.
    Most of the interior failures don't happen on lower temperature, all of the headliner damage and stuff that my car (even wiring damage) is nowhere to be found on cars born over here.

    Box surgery. Or as I like to call it, date night.

    Typical cheap Volkswagen brittle plastics.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Williams says:

    My 23 yr old just bought a 13 jetta with 48k We shall see how it fares after a few months and knowing how she drove the Yaris. 😀

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Hanichak says:

    We even another video system on top of the video system LOL great ending thank you Ray for your wonderful entertainment

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lon Hoschar says:

    I agree with Spenny62. It's not what you DID as much as KNOWING WHAT to do!! Good job Ray!!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Colton Sills says:

    'In the future event where service is needed, which being a Volkswagen that could be any second now'

    Spot on, Spot on.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Just Me MrB says:

    Cup of Ray today.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hooptie Rescue says:

    I always just keep some rubber cement around to temporary glue things together in such a way that they won't wiggle loose but can be easily pulled apart by the next tech then offer that as an option to the owner rather than having to shell out (and/or potentially wait quite a while) for a replacement part.

    V trouble u

    Typical vag junk poor quality

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Mitchell says:

    only thing these videos need are more commercials

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick H says:

    Didn’t think that was a rule on not moving the seat , I always have the seat all the way back with a slight tilt but I’m around 7ft tall , I get a laugh when I see normal size people getting ready to sit or “ fall “ into the seat lol

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fishdr2 says:

    You should of doused it with some brake clean first

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hamster Page says:

    Commercial right in middle of video. Guess the price to pay when u get famous. Love your videos but I can’t handle too many commercials.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gsettlemyre says:

    As you mentioned having a little luck and skill, you gave me both just this week with my son’s car, 2013 Malibu, it started running rough while he was passing a vehicle, check engine can on, traction control lite up and it idled rough. Had to have an oil change done anyway, took it to the dealer for that and they always plug in the OBD ll vin reader to get accurate mileage and it showed code P0300 and P0303 general misfire and misfire on bank 3. Took it home, and replaced all 4 of them on his 2.0 turbo 4 cylinder and both lights went away and it runs like a dream once again..
    So my long story short is with your knowledge and my skill I was able to save some cash and do the swaps myself, for that I thank you for sharing this valuable information the way you do!
    Thank you!!😎👍

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pcspecialistpdx says:

    Must be a common failure if they keep them in supply.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars blocki says:

    G stands for "Geber" (german for sensor) for basically all VAG cars.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars meme lean says:

    ive had a 2.5 5 cylinder for about 2 years, absolutely zero engine issues. glad this car was finally shown on this channel!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G. Reaper says:

    Open box surgery…. LOL

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Layton says:

    I wonder if the small broken off detents were sucked into the engine.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jon Dunbar says:

    Really liking the classic FOB in the background Ray

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GreyDog EdmDriver says:

    What a stupid redundant hose connection. Both ends of the hose plug into the same intake. Makes as much sense as having a screen door on a submarine. Or fire proof matches.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ethan says:

    I have a question @rainman rays repairs do the scan tool get updates

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Knight says:

    For the tight fits, buy yourself a bottle of, ahem, personal lube, silicone kind. Radiator hoses, intake hoses, even tires go on so much easier. I've used the old Ivory soap and glycerin over the years but this stuff is much better. My master tech buddy revealed this to us. No end of jokes for a couple weeks at least but now we all have a bottle handy. We just peel off the label for obvious reasons😀

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fred Walker says:

    Good eye Ray. The biggest “problem “ here is the customer “not telling” the service writer, I had this expensive issue not long ago, & was not fixed . Almost like this was a test of honesty ! LOL

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Freemesser says:

    MSRP for that intake hose is $128, lowest dealer price I saw was $88. Can't decide if $88 is unreasonable or not…

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Grunewald says:

    My experience with water cooled VW was that it was a POS. Alternator brushes gone. Broken fuel injector wire. Fuel pump stopped due to known defect in fuse box. Misfire due to crappy ignition system fouling plugs. Entire exhaust system rotted out. All this in the first 20k miles. Bye bye no more VWs for me. After watching your videos I wouldn't touch any German car. Over engineered is an understatement.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Noyes says:

    it might just be the video, but that looks like it is made out of the cheapest plastic on the planet, like dollar store bendy straw cheap

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Newton says:

    The state of the interior people do not look after there cars . That door trim you get used door card and replace they are not expensive people have zero pride

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Newton says:

    We never got this engine in europe

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Evan Kibbe says:

    Always nice when it is not really difficult 😊😊😊👍🌎🌞

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Stephens says:

    There was skill involved, if you didn't know what you were looking for it could have gone undetected, great Job.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars old biker says:

    5 cylinder that's new to me ,didn't know that , its turbo time lol

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ray storey says:

    I had the same thing happen, A self tapping screw was all it cost for the fix over two years ago ! (we have lots of beetels in the uk)
