    I made a mess when I tried to replace the electric auxiliary cooling fan behind the radiator on the passenger side. I loosened the bolt which holds the upper the transmission metal hose into the radiator in order to remove the fan. I plugged the hose back in but did not screw back in the bolt...

    I am new here. I am a seasoned DIYer and I am fairly skilled in fixing my cars. This does not mean I make no mistakes though. My V6 30V passat has reached 170k miles so I did the timing belt job the 2nd time to it. I did the first at 100k miles and all was OK. The engine started and idled...

    My 01 passat 1.8t has been throwing the p0171 system too lean bank 1 code for some time and while it hasnt affected drivability at all, I would sleep better at night if I had an idea of what would be causing this. Mostly the cel lights up after a longer drive when I come to an idle at a sign or...

    Hello, Over the past week, I have had this new issue with my 01 Passat 1.8t AUG. When I go to start it after it has been sitting, let's say, over night or for more than 5-6 hours, it cranks, and at likes it has started, but then dies. On the second attempt, it always starts right up. I have...

    Looks as though our Passat is headed to the wrecking yard. Before she goes though, I would like to take the stock sound system out of it and install it in my VW Eurovan. Is this something that can be done, by someone who knows little about sound systems (me!), without too much trouble or money?
