    Hey, all! New guy here. I have a 2014 1.8t SE, A/T. I've had it for about 3 years now, and I'm about to hit the 130k mark.

    Hi guys, I hope this is the right place to post this question. Today I finally decided to start the big job on my 2003 B5.5 1.8T, and the main part of it would be the timing belt. So, as this is the first time I'm doing it, I decided to take the long route and remove the radiator support panel...

    I have a 2004 Passat with the 1.8T engine, I was driving around town then heard a loud pop under the hood it sounded like a backfire. Now when ever I'm on the gas at WOT it would buck, sputter, and misfire. If I ease into the throttle I can still feel boost in 1st..2nd..3rd gear but bucks and...
