    I been bad to my passat the only thing i did in the past 4-5 months are a set of spark plugs because apparently 10k miles on copper plugs with an APR chip and radically advanced timing caused them to miss fire so bad i couldn't go past 10 PSI without shooting flames :icon_eek:, add to that the...

    I had gotten stuck in the snow yesterday and noticed that the only time my ASR kicked in was when my passenger wheel spun. Is there a way to tell if a sensor has gone bad?

    Little story from today: So, we got about 11" of snow overnight. Not a big deal, i love driving in the snow and plowing while I'm at it :P. I'm taking my mom home from work, and i am turning from a street that is plowed to one that is not. normally this isnt a huge deal (snow tires) but what got...

    How do you know if your MAF is going bad? How do you know if your diverter valve is going bad? I've changed just about everything else but I am still having the same symptoms. The car seems to bog down a little after every shift (when is drops RPM). There is not a good power curve through the...

Pulled over to the side of the road, popped the trunk and right away I could see what had happened. It appears that...

    Hi guys. My car in big trouble and I'm lost for words right now. My wife and I went to auto show in Boston this past Saturday, there were no parking spaces left and I had to do a Valet parking. Well when they brought my car back, it was making noises, I saw smoke coming out under my hood and it...

    My tires always seem to wear really bad in the inner front tires. I'm currently running on 18" rims with 225/40/R18 tires and have always gotten an alignment done when getting new tires. However, despite the alignment and balance, the fronts always seem to wear a lot faster on the inside. I...

    I have an '01 1.8t and my mechanic recently told me he thought it needed a new oil cooler. He showed me that the coolant was cloudy instead of bright pink and said he thought the cloudiness was an early sign of the oil cooler going bad. He went on to say this was a common problem with Passats...

    First things first, 1998 AHA 30v V6 Passat. Ok so after smelling the awful smell for way too long, I decided to change the CCT seal/gasket and the valve cover gaskets on my wife's Passat. Got it done and cleaned up, put everything back together, reconnected the battery, and . . . . . . rattle...
