    Take a look: What is this and where does it go? -red arrow- <- :P Click to enlarge: It seems to just be dangling. Is it supposed to be attached to something? Seems silly to just have something dangling there. Also I've been looking for a good DIY on lock cable/latch replacement. Having...

    Why is my 8 month old Frankenturbo leaking coolant from the plug at the bottom of the turbo? I have never touched this plug and it's 100% as tight as it can be, yet it leaks a modest amount of coolant. It kind of looks like the transmission fill plug on my automatic... with a small metric size...

    I accidentally drop a thin wire about 7cm long and 2/3 the size of the BBQ pan wire. I dropped it to the left part of the engine bay where there is some space between the engine and the right front fender. I am pretty sure it went straight down to the plastic engine splash guard and I tried to...

    My 2003 B5 1.8 turbo is coding P0117 coolant sensor circuit low input. It is low on bottom end power. Temp guage is working fine. Mechanic says computer is dumping too much fuel to engine to compensate. Does this sound right?:confused:

    Before I redo all my gaskets and such - I noticed that the smoking is coming from BELOW the VCGs, can you guys just run by a quick list of what could it be? Also, if one of my cylinders was ****ed, where would the smoke be coming from. I am reluctant to take the pistons out, since it's a huge...

    Well, since last fall, I have been trying to solve an oil leak in my 2000 V6. The only sign of a leak, besides the moderate pace of oil consumption, is an ever-present drop of engine oil at the bottom of the bell housing where the trans/engine meet. I have degreased the engine a few times and...

    HI All. I'm new to the site (as a member) although I have learned a lot in the past from you all when searching for help. My latest problem is crazy! I replaced the timing belt back in December and the car was running great. The valve cover gaskets were leaking oil into the spark plug wells...

    i recently took the passat in for the steering column recall. since i haven't been driving the car much lately, i did not notice the problem until now. what's happening is that the bottom of the steering wheel rubs with the plastic steering column cover that it mounts to. so whenever the...

    I have removed the clips from the hoses but cannot seem to get them to budge. Normally I would go after a hose aggressively with a radiator hook but these plastic connectors baffle me. Any hints on getting the hoses off the radiator?

    I have a 2000 Passat 1.8 turbo. Did anyone remove the Engine & Transmission from the bottom? Would it be easier? I have access to a lift and it seems like a lot to disconnect from the top.

    Hey guys, it's been a long time since I've posted - real long time so just wanted to say hello again! I just got a parking spot in my building and the transition from the driveway to the garage has a nice hump. Front wheels clear and I thin the belly pan clears but it still scrapes - I've...
