I have this problem and that sounds like a cheap solution. I like cheap.
Anybody suggest a high temperature epoxy before I go and break my car?

So I actually found the J&B stuff mentioned in the article.
I spent about an hour digging my way down to the coil pack. They must have been talking about a different car, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to move that thing without removing either the air filter container or the battery, but I finally got it out.
There was indeed a crack near cylinder 6 which is where the computer kept telling me the misfiring was.
So now I'm all happy, this will fix my problem for $4.00.
I jsut have to wait for the epoxy to set and voila, new car.

You're using JB Weld for that? I've always thought of of that for metal repair.

Yea, it's for metal repair, but I'm not exactly trying to hold the part together either.
I'm sure VW would not approve, but I'm sure they'd want to sell me another $400 broken part too.
If you search the google, lots of people have done this fix and it has worked well. The purpose here is to seal the inside of the coil pack from the outside and from water getting in, and most importantly, to act as an insulator so the coil won't short on the case or the engine.
And it's rated to 600 degrees, so I'm going to go with the fact that everybody said it worked well.
I'll let you know how it goes.

..still waiting for epoxy to harden.
I'd really like to put it in the car today and drive it tomorrow, except that it's going to be 20 out tonight, so it will never harden up, so I have to leave it inside and run out tomorrow morning and put it in before the big present-openeing fiasco.
Silly me, I wsn't thinking about that: the gti is "the big car" and is the only one with enough room inside to carry all the crap we're inevitably going to have to take home, home.

So I put the coil pack in this morning and it runs fine, so at least I didn't make anythnig worse.
Tomorrow it's going to rain, so I can see right away if I actually fixed anything.

Oh yeah, and happy christmas.

Subject: 56v Chevy Townsman

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hey y'all, long time no post…I have to re-register every time I visit!


More to the point, I have come into posession of a '56 Chevy Townsman, the four door station wagon, 2 door version called Nomad.  The engine has been rebuilt, as well as the tranny, although it hasn't a new starter; and the body is in fair condition...

 IF I want to sell it as is,  what should I ask?

I think you should ask what you should ask? They probably don't list that. I expect there are classic car websites that offer this information, or ragnar might have an idea.

I love my gti. $4.00 and a trip to home depot saved me $500 in new parts, and now the car runs good as new.
It used to hesitate even in the dry, but now it runs pefectly smooth, even in the rain.
very very happy.

hey, maybe somebody here would know this.
I got kate a heated seat kit for the end of year thing, and I thought it would be a real paid to get the heating element under the seat cover.
That was easy, turned out getting the console apart so I can get at the cigarette lighter to wire it is what's impossible.
I'm not expecting anybody to know how to get a 2003 civic console apart, but any idea where you could point me to?
I spent an entire day looking on the web, there's zillions of examples, all for the wrong car, there's one for the right car with no pictures (though he refers to them) but his explanation didn't work.
Any ideas?
Alternativly, I can wire it to the fusebox, which I can get at, except it doesn't use normal car fuses (that I've ever seen) the ones in this car are about 1/3 the size of every other car fuse I've ever seen.
I can't see shoving a wire in there with the fuse, it's just too small.
