    Who knows anything about what struts to buy? I'm hearing great things about PartsGeek and their prices for the strut are better than what I can get for just the shock at most of the parts stores around here.
  5. 1996 Passat Vr6 only starts on second try

    Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Strange issue. If my car sits long enough and I try to start it, it will fail. If I try to start it, shut it off then try again, it will start normally on the second try. Is this a fuel pump issue? Car runs perfectly afterwards. Have been to busy to hook it up to my VAGCOM to check it out.
