    I'm buying an '05 with 215,000 miles. It starts fine but turbo is fried. 2 previous owners, car looks good for mileage and age. I'm paying $500 for it. Any advice would be appreciated .

    I just had another engine put into my Passat (1.8t AWM). I pulled out from the store today and shifted from 1st to 2nd and heard an unfamiliar noise and noticed I was not accelerating any more. When I hit the gas, I had 1-2psi of boost (it was hitting 10-12 earlier). Get home and disconnected...

    I replaced the rear wheel bearings in my 00 B5 about 1 year ago on one side and 6 mos ago on the other. The 1 year side is doing fine, but the side that got done 5-6mos ago is in bad shape. That bearing is fairly stiff and making awful grinding noises when rotated. I pulled the carrier on that...

    I currently have gauges (oil pressure, oil temperature and Volt meter) in the DIN underneath the radio. I was thinking of putting them in a more easily-visible place on top of the dash in this: 52mm Universal Triple Dash w Dome Lip Gauge Pod GS UD3 Lip | eBay Just wanted to get some...

    About 6 months ago my Dash started going crazy Speedomeoter stopped working or would jump around and the abs light would flash and beep. A friend said unconnet the abs control to see if it went away. It did but of course the brake light and abs flash. I came across a used one at a junk yard...

    I have bought a 2003 Passat 1.8 turbo at a car sale. Very nice looking car. Black with tan interior. 112K miles. Brand new tires.The Passat was sitting there with a dead battery and absolutely no history. When the bidding was over, i was the person with his hand in the air. Bought it for $375...

    Exactly how it sound but one problem no other coil is sparking in the coils place but that coil doesn't spark either. So if I keep that coil in that spot I only have one bad coil but if I switch it I have two. How do I fix the wiring or even know what's wrong with it

    This is some damage my 2001 b5 passat incurred... due to an idiotic owner. It's a fuel line, it got crimped underneath the front left footwell. I can't quite tell if it's the feed, return, or a vent, and was so tired tired I left it at "it's not leaking." Either way, I will be looking at my...

    I looked through many forums but couldn't find my specific problem. I never got too good MPG since shortly after I purchased the car (99 Passat 1.8T AEB), however after just changing the oil, valve cover gasket, spark plugs, control arms and springs, the MPG is still just as bad / worse. What...

    Total Noob here making my 6th post... At the moment I have a 99 GLX in my garage that I bought for <$600 delivered. It runs great, but had a collision (left rear) that got the title for the car branded as 'Parts Only', so it can not be rebuilt. It was really an impulse buy; a low bid in an...

    New-to-me car, but recently did the overheating thing....and was difficult to diagnose. Lots of great posts here on diagnosing, but I'll just add that you can easily check the impeller for looseness by accessing it through the drain plug near the thermostat. Just insert a thin hex key, or...

    Background: Car given to us after water made it's way inside the driver cabin and CCM was under 2 inches of water. All dry, new CCM installed and programmed. Rear hatch (wagon) motor wouldn't work. Also, if we didn't drive it for 2-3 days, the battery would be dead. We got tired of using...

    2002 V6 4mo 145K The other day i started the car up and the starter was a bit squeaky but turned over, first time i noticed this. About 5 starts later, it just made one kinda loud click sound. Not repeated clicking as if a low battery but only one click, and nothing. Tried rocking the car in...

My 99 still runs good, i bought this car 5 months ago already with this noise, and now i want to fix it. Notes: The video...

    Sorry for the long post, but details needed for diagnosis. So after paying VW to replace my leaking rear main seal 2 weeks ago, my 2008 Wagon 2.0 TSI 6spd manual with 180k miles developed a horrid shuttering vibration. To my dismay, this is not a constant problem and thus harder to diagnose...

    I am back after many years chasing down a problem with my ABS that started this year. I say something about that this may be a possible warranty issue. Has anyone had this repaired under warranty in Canada?

    2003 1.8 AWM. 134,279 miles. Persistent oil leaks. One of the more annoying ones is from around the flange of the oil return line, turbo end. Joy. Replaced gasket. Tightened bolts. Check it on the regular. Others... Well, my first one was easy - the dipstick tube was busted. Replaced. No...

    So I noticed a small jolt when I am in gear and stopped at a light. My mechanic has diagnosed it as the top most visible mount on my 06. Since I am changing it out, I can't be sure if the other mounts are bad or if they are hydraulic. Quick search on the forums state that hydraulic mounts leak...
