    Hey, guys! I drove my new (to me) 03 Passat V6 (manual transmission) to the gas station the other day. I went inside for a coke and when I came out it wouldn't start. And it hasn't started since (got it towed home). I've done a little reading on potential causes, but thought I'd throw it out...

    Hello, I'm back after replacing both downstream oxygen sensors. I used the universal OEM BOSCH. I followed the instructions and I'm sure I did not miss anything. Before I go back and double check, I wanted to post the codes in case there is something else. Car runs great, very smooth, I'm not...

    I've recently been getting a recurring CEL for coil #4 which isn't moving with the coil (swapped coil with cylinder 3) but the CEL is always for cylinder 4. I pulled the rubber boot back and didn't see anything that jumped out so was thinking of just replacing the entire harness for that...

    Hello everyone. Been visiting this forum off and on for the last year since I bought my 2004 GLX 4motion (2.8 V6 30v) and have found it a wealth of wisdom and information. Two days ago I started my car and the CEL started flashing. Idle was a rough so being home i immediately shut it down. I...
