interesting weekend with the Jetta

By IceMan22885

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

The rear breaks on my Jetta needed to be changed so I went shopping around and picked up some Wagner pads and some house brand rotors from Car Quest. It took some work but I got it done. The problem is that when I took my wheels off. I realized that there was a problem with my car. The wheels have an unusual wear pattern on the inner tread. I just had my car checked this morning and found out that my rear axle is bent. $400-500 in spacers could fix the problem, but I'm going to try a different route suggested by the mechanic. So I will call a shop tomorrow about bringing my Jetta in to be put on the frame rack to correct the bend in the rear axle. That should save me around $250-350 and should correct the problem. Well wish me luck. Never had to deal with this before.

after 3 hours of trying to start my frozen beast we managed to push it onto a car dolly. we towed it home and tried to start it the next day but were unsuccessful. minnesota can be so fridgid. never the less we towed it into the warm garage and tried jumping it again and got it to start. this marks the first day my grand prix has ran in id say at least 3 months if not more. our project is to get it back on the road again. i will be documenting the car's progress and what exactly i have done to it. its just a simple 3.1L V6 but i still have some plans for it.
