    I recieved a 2002 Passat Four Motion GLS, Wagon, with the 6 cyl, 2.8L motor, a couple years back. The car itself looks as though it's in really nice shape. Although looks can be decieving. Within a month of getting it, the Fuel Pump dropped out. Second issue was a new starter and not much fun...

    My recently-acquired (last Feb.) '05 4Motion Wagon with AWM engine and Tiptronic (B5 #5 for me) recently began suffering from symptoms I've seen described here quite a few times: the starter would intermittently fail to energize. The solenoid would click, but it would not move far enough to...

    So I'm new to this forum, I was gonna post about my car and what I have done to it so far, future plans, and end with a question as that would seem to be the best use of one of my two required post in this forum before my tangible presence is proven and I am then allowed to frolic in the other...

    We've been having issues with our battery in our 2001 V6 Passat wagon draining overnight. At first I thought it was human error (leaving lights on or such), but now I'm thinking it's something else. We have a sunroof. And now whenever the battery is dead, it's on a morning after it rained the...

    Hi folks, Seemingly this is a simple operation, and I've read posts and followed the advice. But here is the situation. I'm trying to replace a coil and plug on a misfiring cylinder, and have approached removing the connector by both pushing down on the tab and also prying the flap from the...

    Apparently VW has opposed regulation requiring stricter emissions, so they are now starting a smear campaign against VW. Greepeace ad^ Original Ad (Which I'm sure everyone and their grandmother has already seen) ______________ Ironic that GP decided to rail against one of the greenest...

    I have an on going P1423 - Secondary Air Injection System, Low Flow Bank 1. The SAIP pump is running and only one bank is affected so I assumed the combi was plugged. I took it off and didn't find a lot of blockage as I could blow air through the valve with my lungs fairly easily. I went...

    So a couple of weeks ago my boyfriend decided he wanted to learn how to drive a stick shift. No biggie I have an '86 GTI on his last leg and since it was what I learned to drive on, I figured it was the perfect for the challenge. Anyways, the poor boy is having the hardest time getting a feel...

    anyone have any idea what this is talking about? if it's talking about the % that the tint is? i have drivers side rear window where the tint is bubbling and don't know if this means i'm going to have to get VW to retint, or if indy shop can match it up.

    A few weeks ago, I ran over a sunken manhole cover (one might choose to call it a very shallow pothole) while going through a left turn, and the car shook like it got hit by a damn torpedo or something. Ever since, there's been an audible and tangible click in the suspension which manifests...

    i just tried getting my wife some new floor mats for her 02 wagon, which has a grey interior but no floor mats. imagine my surprise when i am told by the vw dealer that the color grey is now listed as "obsolete." i dunno if they finally realized that an all grey interior is so ugly they cannot...

    I just installed my turbo timer on my 1999 AEB. It works fine. I even set up the alarm bypass so it could lock while the engine is running. However, the bypass doesn't work. I cut the lead from Fuse #6 and connected that lead to the Accessory power cable at the ignition switch, capping off the...
