    That’s where the PCV nipple is, so, yeah, oil vapor on that side of the manifold is normal. No worries. That’s not so gummed up as to affect flow, though, personally, I always clean that sort of...

    I’ll answer the question first - if the angle gear is dry, then, no it’s not urgent. Mine was always “damp”. So, I rebuilt it with new seals, chamfered the edge, etc. But I’m glad I did it and added...

    I can’t tell, from those part numbers, what you’re doing.

    If you’re just doing the angle gear, cool, but you still need to get the anaerobic sealant. You should do the collar sleeve at the same...

    At that mileage, you might consider replacing the collar sleeve. Angle gear has to come out, so you might as well do the seals on it.

    You can get a kit. FCP Euro, or IPD, I can’t remember which,...

    The rough idle and low boost suggest an air leak between the turbo and throttle body. Cracked boost pipe, loose hose clamp, intercooler leak, something in that path.

    I think a 245 section width will rub and hit suspension components. It’s only going to fit if the offset is perfect. A 235 width barely fits and will rub if the control arms are not equipped with the...

    Are the deposits from high SAPS? Or the increased calcium? I think I would have to do a very detailed brand/additive comparison before condemning an A3/B4 oil on the basis of SAPS.

    A new Bosch MAF will work and costs about $100. Other brands are a waste of money. Seriously. A big waste.

    MAF cleaning rarely works. You can try it, but don’t expect much.

    Outer CV joint, if it’s just when the when the wheel is turned.

    If the noise happens in a corner (load on the opposite side) then it’s your right wheel hub, the bearing is going bad.

    If your intent is to out the 850 engine in the XC, I wouldn’t. Too many differences, even though the blocks are similar.

    Coils and plugs replaced - what brand? Misfire is nearly always the coil. Injectors fail, but coils are more common.

    Start by swapping the coil and plug from cylinder 3 to cylinder 2. If the...

    Always, always, check fluid level first when a transmission is acting up. It can be checked cold (idling, dead level ground) by using the "Cold" marks on the dipstick.

    Used is a horrible idea. You would be buying equally worn-out components and installing them for a high price. Absolutely not worth it.

    4C strut/shock cost is the big driver. I can't think of a...
