The PVC system recycles the vapors in the engine ,by a vacum pulse created by the PCV valve. This also picks up some oil vapors and is normal to have oil residue on the related parts. Let me know if that helps

Why does my 2004 Lincoln ls v6 sputter at 50 to 60 mph


Hi,I have a 2004 as we'll,bought it used about 6 months ago,he said he had new valve cover gaskets replaced,our vehicles are know to have leaky gaskets,the mechanic that did the job,didn't put one of the hoses back on right,it put in it in a bind,and cause it to crack and leak,I found one on ebay for about 50 bucks,if you open your hood,to the left are 2 hoses,right at the end is where it cracked and started sucking air,the other end goes around the engine and connects to the pvc valve on the back side,I also replaced the pvc,but the old one was still good,with the leak,it cause the engine to not have any power,also if you look on both sides down on engine,is it leaking oil,if so then the valve cover gaskets are leaking,their's a good you tube video showing you how to do it,plus changing the plugs you have to remove the intake to get to them,whoever came up with this design needs a spanking,lol,let me know if your hose is bad,I will show you where to get a new one,your check engine light may come on,mine did.

VW CABRIO CAR GOES THRU AND SHIFTS FINE WHEN YOU FIRST START OUT AFTER ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES GOING DOWN THE ROAD IT WILL COME OUT OF GEAR IN LIKE A NEAUTRAL POSTION I PUT SHIFTER IN NEAUTRAL AND THEN BACK IN...


Is it a full auto box or auto with manual selection. Full auto has only 1,2,D,R. If its full auto take it to a regular tyre/exhaust place and ask them to help.
The vw and audi auto gearboxes that also have selectable manual gears are only reliable when they have the correct clean oil in them.
The oil is special and expensive, and you must only use the oil from VW. If you havent changed the gearbox oil, get it done. Its much cheaper as a first step, compared to taking the gearbox apart to check for wear or damage.

How to check pcv for vaccum leaks


The lines going to the PVC are what you would have to remove and check with a Vacuum pump or Vacuum source. Close off one end with your finger and apply Vacuum to the remaining end.
The engine and its cavities produce a Vacuum pressure when the engine is running to draw in vapors from the oil system. Therefore any hose connected directly to the PVC valve will vent through that system so you will need to test the parts off of the engine.
The PVC valve is a cheap part and usually does not break between replacement intervals. Because of the spring valve inside this part, it is to be replaced at intervals just like an air filter.

Vw cabrilet cuts out when driving


Hi if your car runs fine from cold and starts fine when cold, but then if it starts playing up when it gets to near running normal temp then this is a good indication that the oxygen sensor is up the shoot and will need replacing.
the reason it points towards this being the fault is that the oxygen sensor only starts to work when it reaches a certain temp so if your car runs fine when cold but plays up when hot or warm then the chances are getting the oxygen sensor (or lambda sensor for its proper name) changed should then solve your problem.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

How to change a burned head light on a 2000 vw cabrio?


Changing headlights on VW Cabrio I just changed the headlights on my roommate's 2002 Cabrio, but I followed the instructions given for a 2001. What you have to do is: 1. Move the metal wire holding the black cover to the side and remove the black cover. 2. Remove the power cord from the bulb itself and push to the side. 3. You will see a pin holding the headlight in. Squeeze the pin (you want to squeeze closer to the top of the pin, which is the closed end; don't squeeze the open ends because all you will do is get irritated and hurt your fingers), then push it back and down. What this will do is move the pin away and then out from those little metal tabs that its going through. One side will pop out, then the other. When you get it out, the pin should be standing up, with the closed end pointing up. You can then remove the bulb and replace. Popping the pin back in is a heck of a lot easier than getting it out! I was able to remove the cover, but I got totally stumped on the pin. I hope this helps you out, it may be a little confusing but its kind of difficult to describe. Maybe this will at least point you in the right direction!
