    This is my first VW, made the mistake of buying it from a dealer that had zero service history on it. After my first oil change, I put in 5W40 Castrol Syntec, it started leaking oil. Wasn't leaking previous to the oil change. The oil that came out was black and nasty and definitely not...

    I'm in the dead middle of a timing belt/everyotherbelt replacement, and I'm stuck at trying to get the four bolts that hold the crankshaft pulley cover thing off. I've tried a hex bolt, star key, a triple-square... everything either fits too loosely, or is too big by like .0001 of a cm. I feel...

    HI, I have a serious trouble with my Passat. What seemed to be just a pulley became a nightmare when my mechanic opened the frontside and saw that the crankshaft is kaput. He suggested me that it's better to get a second hand engine block then to repair this one. I have this car for 2 years...

    I just had my dash out to replace my heater core and installed a new stereo (plug and play). It exploded and burned both the feet of my wife and I. Fun! Not really. I have had the car back together for about a week and today my EPC light comes on and I have no power. I have my crankshaft sensor...

    Hello, I am doing TB replacement and I would like to change seals for Camshaft and Crankshaft. The sprockets are aligned as recommended and then I took the belt off. I know it is lethal to turn the sprockets with TB off, but how can I remove the sprockets without turning them so I replace the...

    Recent Timing belt job completed (< 750 miles ago) I'd like to know what the symptoms are for a Crankshaft Pulley that's failing. For example the key on the inside of the pulley is worn. How would the car drive?

    Hello. Most of you should know that i'm not from US and english is not my native language. Around a month ago I bought a set of two seals that I thought were the crankshaft ones. Any way, comparing them to the one I had previously bought it's pretty obvious that these parts are not the same...

    I am in the midst of changing the time belt and was removing the crankshaft bolt to replace the seal. The crankshaft pulley moved (counter-clockwise). I think that is a pretty bad sign, right? I do have the VAG tool plugged into the crankshaft sealing plug. What should I do? :cry:

    While driving home my 2004 Passat 1.8T started to shudder, and as soon as I tried to accelerate, it died. My CEL came on, so I read the code and it looks like a Crankshaft Position Sensor that went out. I have been reading on here that it could also be the fuel pump. I have also read that the...
