Cooling system: vertical pipe in expansion case

Good afternoon! I recently had to refill my cooling system twice without any sign of spillage. Also the exhaust gases don't have a white color. When I had to refill for the second time I had a look at the expansion case just to realize that it is full, quite above max. After checking the part catalo...

Re: Consult OBD for '99 GRX 4500I

Hi Nopressure, as I don't have the diesel, I didn't really see the need for a Madman. The 3.0 TDI would have been equipped with a Madman the second I got one. But the 4.5 petrol is much simpler technology and the bad issues with the older 3.0 diesel (high temp due to wrong MAF-values, turbo overpowe...

Re: Consult OBD for '99 GRX 4500I

The shipment was organized by the supplier. The item is not in reach right now, so I can‘t have a look. But maybe just to be sure take a picture of your obd-port which is more or less under your steering column to the right and check with the examples on the website or even send it to the supplier t...

Re: Consult OBD for '99 GRX 4500I

Hi Nopressure, I am not only using the OBD cable but also the permanently installed ECUtalk box. To me it delivers more than enough data. Especially the coolant temperature, MAF und consumption are interesting. I still didn't have any errors to cancel, so I can not complain or report about that. In ...

Re: Play in transfer case lever with bad rattling

Thanks for the good information! In my special case there is a different outcoming: with very high probability the brakes are the culprits. When applying the brakes the rattling does stop - as I only brake rarely on the dust roads I am usually driving on, I didn‘t realize that before. I am missing t...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

Ok, finally problem solved: it was air in the system.
During the service they couldn't find anything strange at the discs or pads and after bleeding the system today the brake works much earlier with a strong pedal feel.

Thanks for all your hints!
