  2. 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

    Newbie here

    Alright all. Hopefully this group can provide much needed help during my soon venture. Story is as followed. Been an Audi nut for a few gens don't hate. Mainly the old scene from 80 sedan, Quattro 90 Sedan Quattro, URS4 avant, S2 coupe RS2 and currently S4 B5 Avant. Love the inline 5 and V6 tt. But now with 3 kids and one moaning missus due to how cramp riding in an avant has become time to part ways and join the MPV crew. Where this all ties up is I found a Sharan VR6, suddenly the pending doom of joining those whom has their fun and end up in boring cars, I can move the squad p

  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

    Starting issue

    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

    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.

  15. Just been looking through the parts diagrams for a New Year's keeping busy task lol, there's the usual radiator 3 pin temp switch that is usually the hoses side of the rad just below the top hose, there's another oddity - looks like a fan series resistor is fitted for the various fan speeds like a heater fan resistor - so I guess if that goes faulty then the fan would only work in max mode (like the upper temp 105 deg switch being tripped). Items are 6: Fan Switch 1H0 959 481B for the 3 pin, there's a 2 pin listed as well 06A 919 501 A. The series resistor 2 is 7M0959506A and is only used on S

  17. After having my grey VR apart to do the crack pipe after changing the oil cooler that was putting oil into the coolant, I ended up changing all the housings onto the head because I was just chasing new leaks - in the end the thermostat elbow, sensor housing and crack pipe elbow and all o-ring seals - there were fine little cracks that were allowing coolant to get past the head o-ring 2 - and also the new crack pipe top o-ring into 19 had a little cut in it when donkey here assembled it all up. Those plastics warp and are generally not so good if original. The head o-ring 2 in the pic will run

  18. 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 ?

  19. 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.

    Oil cooler hoses

    Thanks. I have replaced most of the hoses with silicone but couldn't find these so already ordered some new std. hoses. Did you secure them with spring clips or jubilee type clips?

    If you can, replace them with silicon hoses. I got mine from merlin motorsport (samco ones)

  25. 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

I have read somewhere there are some parts that need to be replaced for this to be done. Can anyone shine some light on this? Many many thanks. Saludos, Korsou

    Hello from Australia

    Hi there, I had a Corrado VR6 many years ago back in the Isle of Man.. Pic below. I've been living in Australia for 7 years now and Corrados are as rare as hens teeth here. I'd give my right arm to get hold of one! Any other Aussies on here? Cheers Simon

  34. So at my second attempt at buying a Corrado VR6, the first being when I was living in Florida 15 years ago. The I saw this one on Fleabay, phoned the owner and had a good chat with him about the car and today went up to see it and go for a test drive. No pics yet but those taken from the add. The interior is good - it even has the original tape deck! Externally the metalwork is in good condition for a 26 year old car with no rust. The bumpers are showing their age though, and will need some TLC down the line. There are 5 Porsche D90 wheels with tyres that have only done 400 miles. Mecha

    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,

    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.
