  1. Amazing fix! Good job. Can't help wonder if it was not necessary to replace the VP44 and rebuild the ect. Years ago I bought my 99 beetle tdi with 100k miles on it dirt cheap because the previous owner couldn't figure out why it wouldn't run (started then died right away). He took it to a dealer who charged him $3500 for a new turbo and injection pump which did not solve the problem. I didn't know what I was getting into when I bought it but I took a chance. After a couple of days me and a friend figured out issue was due to a faulty N75 valve. It's a $35 part which controls the turbo boost valve. I drove that car for 10 years and put 235k miles on it until I blew the head gasket. Now she sits on the side of my house waiting for me to find time to fix it!
  2. @Mopar1973Man , are you over-filling the NV4600? Do you recommend over-filling the NV5600? I'm over filling my NV5600 until it drips out of the top PTO cover bolt.
  3. Great info. Thanks @Mopar1973Man ! I'll give the Mobile 50/delvac1 a try. I found it at summit racing for 39.99 / gal. Since it's gl-4 specific I could try it in my 99 Nissan Maxima 5speed trans too. I had difficulty finding a gl-4 specific trans lube locally for that car - ended up going with a lube I found at NAPA, Sta-lube (crc) 85-90 but it's too thick for the nissan, on cold mornings the car will roll forwards when in neutral. I don't trust lubes that say they are "compatible with gl-5 and gl-4". I've heard that it's really just gl-5. Wow, were you towing or running it hard when that happened? I hope I never have a fail like this. I would be S.O.O.L. without my truck. But just in case I'm thinking I'm gonna try to find a decent used NV5600 to keep on the shelf. @Mopar1973Man Forgot to ask, are you over-filling the NV4600? I'm over filling my NV5600 until it drips out of the top PTO cover bolt. Agree, I have my temp probe in the same place.
  4. Is the Mobile 50 SAE GL-4 also known as "Delvac 1"? And just to confirm, you are recommending this for the NV5600 as well as the NV4600? I've been running the Penz Syncrhomesh for years in my NV5600 but I'm ready to try something different. I feel my trans temps seem to run high (200f average in 5th gear on long distance highway towing 20ft enclosed car trailer, approx 18,000 lbs total weight truck and trailer combined. If I run 6th gear while towing the trans temps immediately rise, went as high as 250f one day before I dropped it back down to 5th). Doesn't matter if trailer is empty or not. Trans temps rise regardless when I tow in 6th. Willing to try the Mobile 50 to see if that helps keep my trans temps down. Taking a highway trip to Florida with that same trailer in a couple weeks. 2k miles round trip from New Jersey. Maybe great chance to test the Mobile 50.
