  7. Awesome Cleaner

    Wax On, Wax Off
    I just wanted to share a little bit of information that I found useful on here. I am not sure who mentioned it, but they mentioned that using "Awesome Cleaner" from the Dollar Tree store and a scrub brush gets tires back to black. I was a bit skeptical but decided to try it today, and I went...

  14. something sounds like a vaccum cleaner on start up?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings all. I recently purchased a 2000 Passat 1.8T wagon. Having never owned one of these cars before, I'm not sure if the sound I am hearing on start up is normal or not. This only happens on cold start up. So when it starts, there is an electric motor that sounds a lot like a vaccum...
  15. Turbo Cleaning- Easy Off Oven Cleaner??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The TDI guys have started cleaning their turbos by removing the exhaust pipe and spraying oven cleaner inside on the vanes to remove carbon buildup. Spray generously, let sit 15 minutes, gently rinse with water, repeat a couple of times. Any reason not to do this on a 1.8T? It saves removal of...
  16. MAF cleaner

    Anything Auto
    Bought some CRC MAF cleaner for my VR6 and it really cleaned the "gunk" off of the sensor plate. MAF sensor still doesn't work, but man is it ever clean!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, I just wanted to post an experience I've had over the past 9 months or so. I first came onto this board 9-10 months ago with CEL P0421 - Catalyst Warmup Efficiency below threshold. Volkswagen recommended I put in a new Cat but my mileage is good and I don't get any strange noises or...
  20. Question about Chevron Techron cleaner?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have the 4motion passat 2004. And I belive I have a 16GaL tank so is it better to get the 16OZ of Techron or the 20 OZ for the 20 GaL tank. I have heard people to tell me to put the 20 OZ but i am afraid i will hurt something since its for 20 GaL and i only have a 16 GaL tank.
