I need to know how to take off the timing cover if i need to remove the motor mount. like where do i start?
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

you will need an engine brace to hold the motor suspended when you remove the mount and the mount bracket

Which bolts do I have to remove to get the timing cover off?

I can't get the center crank bolt off any tips?
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

timing belt still on and use 1/2 " impact gun . must be a good gun like ingersoll rand gun and at least 130 to 140 psi pressure!!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay I got it off. So can I get away with not replacing the crank gear? The teeth don't look warn and I don't want to go through the pain of putting a new one on if I don't have to. Are they the same gear?
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

You mean the chain sprocket?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah that goes over the crankshaft
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

yes leave the sprocket alone !!!

I installed the pump and the car runs great now no more noise but the oil pressure light keeps coming on. I don't understand?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
im reading something about a housing
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
oil filter housing
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

possibility there is a series of check valves in the oil filter housing with the lack of oil pressure may have damaged the valves. you may have to replace the assy and i would also replace the pressure switch!!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The oil pressure switch is the green swtich
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Right? Also should I replace it with the 1.8t assembly? I read that it was nessicary

will thickening the oil up help this issue temporarly?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
like i said ive driven the car with for 50 miles and the engine is fine and runs fine just the light comes on
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

the only way to make sure is to have a manual gauge to check the pressure . most likely the light comes on at idle . with the conversion the 1.8t pump does not have the check valves like the 2.0t pump.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The light only comes on when the car is going over 25 mph the goes away at idle
Expert:  Wolfgang replied 1 year ago.

so the opposite . need to see with a gauge what is the pressure is over 25 mph
