    I went to start it the other day, it cranked a couple time & I thought it started, but was quiet when I let off the key. Cranked again & it sounded like no compression & starter running fast or starter not engaging.(it was engaging) Checked timing belt, it is on and cams are in time. The odd...

    I've been lurking on the site for a while and want to thank everyone for helping even though they didn't know it. I finally ran into a problem where I need some advice. I screwed up, got that part covered. I worked on the car, in the cold (about 20F), with the flu. But the work needed to be...

    I started a thread about my misadventures with a broken cam chain tensioner on the passenger side. The result of the replacement of the CCT was that the car is misfiring on all passenger bank cylinders only. Drivers side is fine even though I changed the pads on that side (meaning I took the...

    Does anyone know what the two bent/squished pipes under the car do? Long story short. Guy in front abruptly changed lanes. There was a tire on the highway. There was a semi on my left and a car on my rear right. Slammed on the brakes, but went over it. Bumper grills fell out. Overall not bad...

    Hello All, I can't seem to make it past the three month mark (:banghead:) without posting some sort of car problem so here it is. I had a engine swap about 5,000 miles ago due to what I believe was a botched timing belt job, leading to timing belt failure and subsequent engine swap. This is an...

    How bad is this? Hit a pothole yesterday. The edge of the wheel lip is bent. Tire is OK, seems to be holding air, and car does not handle any differently. How concerned should I be?

    Just learned that my 2009 Passat 2.0T skipped time due to a tensioner failure. So far, scope shows all valves are bent. Mech says that worst case looks like replacing all valves, machining head, replacing all regularly serviceable timing components. $3,700 on the high end. I've done as much...

    I'm new to these forums and just bought a 2002 V6 for a couple hundred bucks with a broken timing belt. The car is in nice enough shape that I thought I'd give it a go and see if I could fix it myself. I read on these forums that the engine is an interference engine and may have bent valves as...

    Folks, I am a rookie but I am quickly learning that this portal is a awesome resource. I performed a query for 'bent rear axle' and did not find an answer that pertained to my situation so I a throwing myself at the proverbial mercy of the threads. I own a 2000 VW Passat GLS 1.8 Ltr L4 Gas...

    So my wife noticed that my rear tires were wearing a lot on the inside and decided to take it to get new tires and an alignment while i was away. She told me that the guy at the service counter told her that they couldn't get the rear camber to correct because it had a bent axle and it needed to...

    Ok, I hit a deer in milwaukee (just my luck, only guy to hit a deer in this city) and took out the front end (radiator support, condenser, my headlights, and the front clip) she wouldnt start after the accident so i tore the whole front end off to find a hole in the passenger side timing belt...

    I have a question about doing a cylinder leak down test on a cold engine. I heard its supposed to be done on a warm engine, but in my case, not possible since the engine is not in a car. What kind of readings should I be getting, cold? Warm, I heard up to 30% is considered OK. I figure a little...

    Awhile ago my passat had a slight front end collision which caused the power steering cooling tube to bent, I bent it back :wrench: . What I later learned is that the smaller orifice will put the pump under greater stress!!! The pump will at first make some noise, not alot, just enough to let...

    I don't know when this happened. I'm guessing last night. I didn't drive the car all weekend. I walked past it Sunday and didn't notice anything. I street park on a residential street. This morning (Monday) when I left for work, I noticed my hood was bent from someone backing into my car. The...

    Is it possible to straighten them out by tree shade mechanic?

    So I had a main bearing cap bolt break and damage the trigger wheel. I pulled the pan and lightly hammered the wheel back into shape and made sure it was clearing the crank sensor. I can start it, albeit roughly, and it runs for the most part. The EPC light keeps coming on along with the...
