    Car has been acting funny the past couple weeks with a rough idle and intermittent stalling here and there. I don't have my buddy who was a VW mechanic nearby anymore so these issues have become too much for me. Without a vag-com and mechanic-knowledge, I feel this car is too much to handle...

    Had to spend some maintenance money on my 2002 Passat, new timing belt, and I think it was new cam adjuster (guessing here). If anybody needs a good mechanic in Orange County, Ca, find AutoUnion Tuning in Huntington Beach. These guys are ex-Audi mechanics and offer great service at great...

    I'm just a bit past 140K now. For all you super milers out there, besides scheduled maintenance, what are some things that I should be worried about wearing out and causing problems at this mileage? And are there any good ways to monitor your suggested problem/item/part? Thanks, DaOne

    Good day, mates! I am new to the forum, arriving to seek help with the dreaded check engine light on my 2001 Passat GLS wagon. AUG 1.8T, 5 speed. Looks like the problem is multifaceted...it needs an Ox sensor, a water temp sensor, and a SAIC solenoid to pass the emissions inspection. I will...

    Hi, I have a 2001 B5.5 wagon with the 1.8t engine. I'm currently at about 140k miles. Normally, when I have had a car that gets to that age/mileage, I start looking to replace it. However... I haven't liked a car as much as like this one! So, in lieu of purchasing another car, I'm...

Around lunch time...
