QUICK LINKS - MK's Off-Road, TSB's, Parts Books and much more
Here are some links to show the STOCK or LIFTED MK’s off-road, on back roads and in the sand. They are not meant to have a WOW factor, just trying to show some of the capabilities with stock or lifted MK’s. As we get more vids and pics I’ll copy them to this thread. Comments and suggestions can be posted in the primary thread, a new thread or pm’d to me if you like. If I missed some, let me know!

CLUTCH JOB - Gas Engine


CVT fluid service

Crankshaft Position Sensor

Standard torque specs for tune up:
Top engine cover - just pull hard, it's only 4 rubber grommets holding it on to the fittings on the top.
I've done the torque specs on the drain plug (some where), it's 30 ft/lbs.
Spark Plugs are 13 ft/lbs +/- 2.
Coil mounting bolt is 79.5 in/lbs (notice that is INCH/lbs not FOOT/lbs!)
Very easy to do! Remove the engine cover; remove the coil mounting screw; remove the coil; remove the spark plug.
They do say to disconnect the battery like they do on all electrical stuff. This may help reset the computer which is a good thing.

It appears that unless you have the FD II Off-Road Package in 2009 that the Trailer Tow Package is not available. For the FWD and FD I you’ll need to do these things yourself.
