How do you change starter on VW bus?

First, unhook the battery. Changing a starter on a Bus is much more difficult than it is on any other aircooled VW. It shouldn't be because it's a lot easier to get to the starter, but it is because the 17mm nut that holds the top bolt in, is all the way at the front of the engine compartment. (Back is where the door is.) If your Bus is 1972 or newer you don't have to work around the fan shroud...

Asked in Volkswagen, Turbo and Superchargers, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Nissan 300ZX

What does a turbo intercooler do?

An intercooler is placed in the airflow path between the turbocharger and the engine intake in order to cool the air after it has been compressed by the turbo. Compressing air heats it up. By cooling it back down, the air becomes denser. This means more air molecules go into the cylinder. This (when mixed with the proper amount of fuel) increases engine power compared to a non-intercooled engine. ...

Why might a 1974 VW Beetle be consuming too much fuel?

A little more information about the layout of the engine would be nice. Beetles that have been modified have all kinds of issues.
