    2004 V6 4motion Hi folks, My story begins about 12~13 months ago. I'll state the facts, and you can tell me if these issues are from a possibility of one source, or if I may likely have multiple problems. 13 months ago the car would sometimes need more than one turn of the key to crank, until...

    2000 Passat, 1.8t motor. I've posted 2 pics, one as a more general location, then the close up of of the mount in question. I'm presuming this bracket on the black pipe is bent, by evidence of flaked off black paint and twisted condition. Should this black bracket be attached to the the open...

    Hey everyone, I'm new around here and new to the VW game. Not new to turning wrenches on cars, but I can already tell this one will try my patience quite a bit. Anyways, I picked up a broken 2004 passat 1.8t fwd from a friend of mine. I've tinkered around with it and I'm pretty sure that the...

    I have a 2001.5 GLX FWD Ok so here's the story. I've been pumping money into my V6 for the last 2 years, and surprise surprise it's down again. I love this engine when it works but it's a bit like a ticking time bomb I feel and I'm pretty sure the heads are done (CCT failed on me bent some...

    I've searched and am pretty confident I found my answer.... but the fix looked extensive, so I wanted to confirm my symptoms prior to the DIY. My driver's side front door does not indicate when it has been opened. I can unlock with the remote, open the door, but no interior lights come on...

    I have a 2008 model Passat. I'm getting a bit frustrated that when I lock the vehicle I can't always see the indicator flash or hear the "clunk" of the locks. Especially when I'm at the back. I took the car to an independent and asked them to program to car to beep and flash when locked. The...

    I want to do a PCV system replacement on my AWM 1.8T. Im at 69,000 miles and I am told it's a good idea. I also noticed a very very small amount of oil loss or consumption and Im wondering if this is a possible source for that. After reading several threads I think I know what parts I need, but...
