  3. Hello, I have just purchased my first VR6 which I’m very excited about. The car doesn’t have loads of history it’s been sat for 6 years and needs the usual welding jobs done. Engine now starts and runs only issue I found is it idles high at around 1000-1100 RPM. Also I having started it and leaving to run there are a few funny noises which I will try and get a video to show that If anyone can help with be much appreciated. There’s is a few other little issues that shouldn’t be hard to get sorted. Look forward to what will most probably an expensive journey [emoji23] but I can’t wish for it! T

  4. Well, after such a long break from owning a VR6 (L942EPL - still out there somewhere!), and a succession of Mk2's, 3's and 4's I'm back with one! An early 3 door 1994 car that I'd known about for a while, I'm just going through recommissioning it and detailing it too, it's now road legal for the first time in just over 5 years. Still plenty to do, although this one hasn't got any trace of rot at all, and only 62k from new!

    Picked up a bit of a shed not so long ago which I plan on restoring, its a 3 door mystic blue vr6 with about 109k on the clock. Needs a fair bit of work. both sills need repairing (rust/corrosion) jacking points (rust/corrosion) Hole in the floor, done by previous owner but a poor job as you can see so will be doing this again Possibly a full respray as its had a poor paint job Few bits under the bonnet need attention Heater control only works on 3/4 (ANY TIPS WELCOME) Driver side electric window doesn't work (ANY TIPS WELCOME) Central locking system doesn't work (ANY TIPS WEL

  7. Been finding some Puddles on the front passenger and driver side. I Know the seals On the doors are shot including windows, which will be replaced soon but water was entering from behind the fuse box and also On the passenger side where the rubber bung is behind the heater blower. After investigating further i found that the live (red) wire for the amp was fed through this rubber bung at the top therefore water was pouring in. I removed the wire and pushed it through the bung which then sealed properly. I applied some silicone around it to make sure. Hopefully this is now resolved. As for the

    So corrado vr6 was turning over but wouldn't start so I changed the fuel filter and then changed the crack shaft sensor still wouldn't start I was also having problems with the abs light staying on and brakes not pumping correctly So after more online searching I heard mention of the ignition switch and as it happens I had bought one ages before so decided to fit. It took me a good 2 hours as for most part I didn't realise you can actually see the screw holding switch in place if you look down the LHS of steering column when covers are removed, so fitted new switch and the dash lit up like a C

  13. I've been a lurker for years and have sifted through some excellent material on a variety of subjects. They say the ol' 80/20 rule applies to a lot of things in nature, in this case, online forums. 20% of the people post content and 80% are scooping it up. Much of the content here in this forum is GOLDEN and it spans for many crucial years (applicable to many of our cars that are still proving themselves on the road). It is a learning curve with every forum to effectively navigate (but if there is good, applicable content, they will come). The strength of VR6OC.

    It cost me just shy of £1000, i had the inner and outer sills done, jacking points (reinforced) all the arches where ever there was rust, floor panel as it was patched up previously by a cartoon character lol.. also the drain holes i got rid of. Still a long list of things to do before i send it for a full paint job. The Weather and "covid" doesn't help. Hopefully will start making time during the day to do the odd few jobs. If it was sat on my drive i would most likely crack on but now that the welding has been done i have dried stored it.

  16. Never had that before but it’s not beyond the realms of possibility but I didn’t expect it to protrude into the coolant system ?

  17. Hey mate. logic thing is that it’s crack pipe. Or the hoses are not fully tightened up. Check thermostat housing as they generally warp and never seal back properly. If you put some coolant in it should dry pink and may help you identify where it’s coming from easier ?

    Oil cooler hoses

    No worries, the part numbers are TB0580 and TB0581 if you ever changed your mind and only came to around £24 when I got them back then. Just get some rolled / rounded edge jubilee clips unless you have a brand new spring clips as they never go back on properly and more than likely will leak. If you've had crack pipe off etc… then first fill your engine with just water and check for leaks before putting coolant in - all too often you see leaks where the block has not been cleaned up properly Cheers.

  21. Agree with Pete there absolutely, and there's lots of variables. Yep, in answer to your original question, are the fans running after every run: NO. But, if I've been stuck in slow traffic, the ambient temp is greater than 25deg C or it's been driven like a VR should, YES, so as Pete says - it's dependant on lots of factors. These cars are old now, and to get one of mine right (with only 62k and dealer history) it took: crack pipe, thermostat housing, thermostat, radiator upper hose, main radiator, both temp switches on the thermostat housing, radiator fan switch - all to original

  27. Sills ordered just waiting on delivery. In the mean time i investigated why the driver window was not functioning. Turns out the glass was not even fitted to anything and the window motor wire was full Of water. Gave it a clean and fitted the glass in. Seemed to be working fine hopefully thats one thing out the way. I also removed most of the rubber/foam that was soaked. Lots of loose uncovered wiring was found under the glove box so will get on to this next. Passenger side door was filled with water i noticed there was a lot of gunk and glass blocking the drainage holes which resulted in the

    Vw corrado vr6 Yr 1995 has suddenly got a starting problem so I've had to turn the key 8-10 times and the starter is turning over fine but won't start then boom she fires up and drives fine. Maybe a fuel issue but the pump must be working if car keeps going after start up, Any thoughts??

    £13.13 for a new fuel filter and boom the vr6 is back to life and engine is running Tip-top, teasing the 25+ year old nuts that hold the filter housing in place was tight but I soaked well before attempting. Fuel filter on a vw corrado vr6 is underneath car at rear of drivers side and easy to access on basic car jacks, though I also put an axle stand in under car [emoji106]

    There's a lot less interaction on the forums nowadays, not just this one - is everyone just facetubin' it nowadays or does that mean the mods have covered all technical Q's now? Just wondering what's changed in recent years?

  38. It’s a shame people don’t use the forums as much as they used to. This was a great centre of knowledge for the VR6. I think people still check back every now and then but don’t post as much. I’ve Met some great fellow VR6 enthusiasts on here. Some great rolling road meetings at stealth have been organised on here is the past also. I can’t stand tapatalk, just doesn’t seem to work and is horrible to use, that with the fact people don’t use websites to chat anymore it’s all app based may not be helping.

    VW's new 496bhp 3.0-litre VR6 engine

    My 2p; "Chinese tax bracket" - hope so, means the money persons are involved in additional units so more likely to get the go ahead. Personally hope that the boffins in white coats have Motorsport DNA in them and are sticking to the "lighter weight and power for a transverse engine bay" philosophy of the original VR6, plus modern cars are quite powerful so more cylinders and detuned would give the 5 pot F**d RS club (sorry for swearing ) a better run for the money (plus win over the journo's like the original with the throaty gruffness!). It doesn't matter if it has 5,

    doesnt your engine getting more powerful and free-er at high mileage means that its near wearing out? Dont know why you say you wouldnt be insterested in schrick as the easiest most cost effective way to get a power increase with NA is schrick VGI, schrick 268 cams and remap, filter and exhaust etc compliment this but those 3 are where your easy increases are. BMC CDA is the daddy of CAIs and they pop up all the time on ebay, i got mine for 50 quid I have read that SS manifold is only really for sound on NA as they only come into benefit with a supercharger, however true that may be.

    Cheers mate. It's not bad for someone who welds and wires up food preperation machinery for a living :-) This and my previous pipe were the only times he's ever welded exhausts. He should do that for a living instead! LOL, yours will be fine, although if you're using MIG, you'll never get the welds as tight as that, but do you know what seperates a good weld from a bad weld? An angle grinder ;-) Yeah the red block is an SX fuel regulator. The wire and sensor on it are for my in dash fuel pressure display.

    Smoke on the over-run.

    Highly unlikely thats its due to overfuelling on the overun - if so this wouldnt be the only time you would be getting visible burning oil - you would see it on all idle/off throttle conditions - ie the same fuelling situtation.... Defo either a crankcase breather problem or valve stem oil seals - vacuum is pulling the oil through. Pete.
