    Before I had my rotation done, at 55-65 mph it would shake a lot and vibrate, I had the tires rotated and now the vibration is kinda gone-ish, but now it's more towards the rear rather the front. I need the two new tires, get all four tires balanced/re-balanced, and the alignment in my car is...

    Hello all, Yesterday my car randomly died. I'd start it, but I'd have to pump the crap out of the gas to keep it running. Then after that it wouldn't start at all. It would start right up once you would jump it, but after you take the jumper cables off, as soon as you touch the gas, the car...

    I've noticed a lot of oil build-up across the differential on the passenger's side of the car. When looking behind the engine block on the passenger's side, there is no evidence of an oil leak other than lot of oil sludge buildup on the PCV tubing/CC Vent valve that runs to the turbocharger...

    I've been reading threads about control arms for days but I'm still not sure where my problem is. My biggest suspicion comes from a clunk I hear and feel from the passenger front. I only get the clunk when starting to roll away from a start and not gentle with the throttle. Normal to medium hard...

    I talked to one shop and they said I don't need a double din dash kit, that it should be a one-to-one fit from the stock Monsoon radio to the Nav. I've seen images of double din units in similar model cars, I just want to know if it required any other labor other than simply popping out the...

    I've read plenty of threads on VCG problems and I suspect this is whats going on, I'd like to confirm it with people who have actually experienced this problem though. It's a 99 B5 V6 73k and it's smoking. Not enough to really concern me, but enough to annoy me. It's visible at idling and if I...
