Conversation Between Mike F and Armand

  1. Hi Mike,

    I have a VW Chico 1.3 (Carb engine) which have been fixed by some "pirate" mechanics, It is overheating, I have changed the ratiator and fan switch, the temp sensor and water pump, it seems to have solved the overheating. The "pirates" also broke the oil pickup, I changed the pickup and also changed the oil but after a few test runs found that the oil doesn't change color it remains clear. I checked the oil under the oil cap and it is very dry, I also got a oil light warning on the last test run. I am thinking of changing the oil pump next, is this the right way to go.
