I just received my Think Auto ( www.thinkauto.com <http://www.thinkauto.com/> ) oil cooler lines from BAT ( http://www.batinc.net/main.htm). Nice stainless braided hoses, bizarre looking fittings, 2 of them are 180 degrees elbows. Part number BR1, 60.00 $US plus 10 bucks for UPS. Ill let you know how it fits on a WX stock engine.
In the meantime, I changed the Mobil 1 20W50 synthetic summer oil to Castrol 10W30 mineral oil; guess what? No more rear main bearing seal vacuum noises! Maybe unrelated, but worth a try for those with a noisy engine.
Question : NAC but VAG content; is there an easy way for Trouble Code Retrieval on 1998 VW Cabrio? I have the Bentley for this car too, but I must use the infamous VAG 1331 tool; is there another tool or cheap trick to prevent stopping by a shop with the VAG tool?
NAC or very little AC
Interesting fact for early urQ owners;
I have a Suzuki Aerio AWD (a press fleet car) and NO, I DONT want to talk of the merits (or lack of) of viscous coupling AWD :-)) but there is a very little feature amusing to my eye;
The car has a blue cold engine idiot light! And I thought the urQ was the only car with such a feature!
83 urQ with too many new parts in a single month, you wont believe it.
