RE: [T3] backfire


Valve springs can be changed with the engine in the car.  Just not as easy
if
the engine was out.

If the mechanic isn't a long haul away, and you've been driving four days
already, I don't think a one-way trip to the mechanic will be any more
detrimental.  But I give VWs a lot of credit for being ?asts (my baby
has
proven herself many a time) so if you think yours should be towed (and you
can
do it for free with AAA or other auto club) then tow it.
