    Snapped two bolts on my valve cover because they didn't want to torque down. I had an inch pound torque wrench. Tried drilling one of them out, but the drill went in at an angle and messed up a side of the threads. Also, when I was attempting to punch the hole, the punch slid onto the girdle...

    How can I use VCDS to check measuring blocks to determine if the O2 sensor is bad? I found this thread VWVortex.com - VAG-COM procedures for testing the MAF, O2 sensors and catalytic converter but it is not specific to ATQ engines. I have a 2002 V6 ATQ. Can I use the info in the link to check...

    I spent a large part of my day cleaning the engine bay and back of the cylinder head to determine where in the world my oil leak is coming from. I just replaced the cam chain seals and the valve cover gaskets. Those are now leak free, but I still have one more leak that I can't solve. I've...

    Possible leaking water pump??? So my girl has decided that she wants to mark her territory every time she is parked (and while driving I assume now) with a nice coolant puddle (not AC condensation). It started off as just a little bit and now it is like a leaking faucet. I tried to crawl under...

    2010 Passat 2.0T with 73K Miles So, I got on to the road, and accelerated a little strong but nothing too hard, to get up to speed in traffic. Immediately the check engine light started blinking so I let go of the gas and noticed the car sputtering at slower speeds and especially when stopped...

    GLX 2.8 V6. 150k. I've been using a bluetooth scanner. When I bought this car it had no CEL. Couple hundred miles later was getting misfire codes. Changed the coil pack, spark plugs and wires. Somewhere along the lines broke a vacuum line (recent post). Replaced that. Now I am getting...

    How can you tell if you've got a bad ECU? What are the Pros/Cons of getting a used ECU from a salvage yard?

    Hi folks, Replaced my coolant tank and motor mounts this weekend on my '02 B5 V6 GLX. Accidentally un-clipped the little power wire to the starter and had to reconnect a couple times to get started but it runs fine now. However: Started the engine, no ac/heat coming out of vents. Coolant level...

    So I recently invested about $1500 into my '07 Passat 2.0T w/ about 125k miles on it. I had the complete continental timing belt kit done. Had a new HPFP installed as well as a new cam follower. I drive it home and everything seems fine. The only thing that I didn't assume was routine...

    Today I replaced the PCV Valve on my 2002 1.8t due to jerking(misfires actually) when coming to a stop. I had the problem for about 3 years(~20,000 miles), but it was very subtle and I did not know the cause. I actually thought the jerking was a transmission issue. Recently the jerking increased...

I did a little research on its MPG it's alot more than what the dash says and from my number...

    Hey everyone, i was wondering how i would know if my PCV system is bad? I used the wonderful google and found "symtoms" of a bad PCV and suffering none, but my valve cover seems to have sprung a leak. Idk if its because of the oil cooler failure some coolant got into the oil and the engine is...

    A/C not "that" cold anymore. Bad expansion valve? Pressure readings/diagnose issues! Guys, The weather down here in a JOKE, it's something like 40ºC by midday (105 ºF). Only now I'm realizing how weak my A/C system performs, I can't get that nice iceberg breeze from the vents as before, only a...

    I noticed my MPG drops quite a bit when my climatronic unit is turned on regardless of if it is heat or air conditioning. Is there a part that may be malfunctioning that is causing this, or is it just how it is supposed to be? Other than the occasional P0421 that comes and then goes for a while...

    Engine: 1.8T Backstory: had to replace the heatercore a few months back which, of course, required emptying the A/C system. Reassembled system when finished, but did not recharge system. Finally got around to trying to recharge system today. I replaced the receiver/dryer, added the amount of...
