    AutoZone sells two versions for the B5 Passat: Duralast ES4008, about $30 Valuecraft VES4008, about $16 I bought the "better" (more expensive) ones, only to discover that they use only a pinch bolt. Where the top bolt is on my stock units and on the Valuecrafts, the Duralasts have a 7 or 8mm...

    So my oil cooler is allowing oil into my coolant. At least that's my explanation for oil in my coolant during a water pump replacement last weekend. I don't know how much these are from the dealer. AutoZone seems to be about $95. Has anyone experienced any reliability issues with the...

    For those of us that like to use Techron for occassional preventative maintenance on the fuel system, my local AutoZone is running a buy one, get one free offer on the large bottles (treats up to 20 gallons). Might be a good time to check out your local store and stock up on a few bottles.

    5 qts of Castrol Syntec/Edge and a Bosch filter for $29.99, and you get a $7 mail in rebate on the oil and a $2 mail rebate on the filter. They even had the real, Made in Germany, European Formula 0W-30 in stock. YMMV, of course.

    In my quest to be a cheap bastard and still find a suitable replacement for the crap aftermarket axles after only 2 months of use, I decided to give the Duralast Reman CV Axles from Autozone a shot. I was getting horrible vibrations during acceleration, and after doing the motor mounts and...

    I was changing the oil and moved a hose when the T fitting under the intake manifold on an AWM broke. It took two stores to find the right size but the guy said they were for windshield washer hoses. Will it work as a temporary fix or will it be permanent? Where exactly do those hoses hoses...

    Well, my MIL came on again today. My room mate isn't home with his scanner, so I can only assume, again, that it's an O2 sensor problem again. I have a small drive tonight and wanted to get the best mileage possible, so I went to AutoZone to get the code scanned/cleared. Much to my surprise and...

    Some of you might remember my post several months back regarding O2 sensors, etc. A week after purchasing my 02 Passat V6 the check engine light came on. Autozone told me to replace the spark plugs and not worry about it. Four months later the car died. No oil in the engine (THE LIGHT NEVER...
