’06 Gti unscheduled maintenance.

177K miles, poor fuel economy, and rattling at start-up from the top of the engine. To get this engine back in shape it was time to tear in to the intake valves and camshaft chain tensioner to replenish some power, mileage, and piece of mind. While everything was apart, we also changed the spark plugs, and the auxiliary cooling  fan due to easier access.
