    I am trying to trace a coolant leak in my 1996 A4 and was thinking how handy it would be to have an adapter which allowed me to connect my Motive brake bleeding hand pump/reservoir to my coolant recovery tank. Does anyone make such a beast, which would screw onto the coolant reservoir and accept...

    2004 AWM - I recently had the heater core replaced, and now have a CEL with P1475 - EVAP Leak Detection Pump: Malfunction/No Signal. Fuse is ok, and this code only showed up after the heater core replacement. I suspect the electrical connector is loose, however I cannot find the location of the...

    Today I checked my rear sunroof drain hoses, so I had to remove the wheel well inner liners to access the discharge ports/nipples. In any case, it was a first time for me to encounter this... thing and its grimy filter. - - Being so filthy, I removed the whole thing to clean it. Disconnected...

    Was just at the dealer for cel. They state that the vacuum leak is because there is a broken valve below my BSH intake. This valve is the supply line for the leak detection pump. Anyone know what valve this is? The pricks at the dealer won't tell me. Need help ASAP! Supposed to be leaving town...

    I'm somewhat new to the B6 family, as my B5.5 was totalled back in Oct 2010. I love my B6 as I did lots of research on it before I bought it. I know some of the flaws with this year, however now I have a problem that I was unable to find it in the search. On 12/23/2010 my husband and I are...

    I am really not sure of how this thing works. Are there any ways to disconnect it and fool it from throwing a CEL? A while back I was having slight lean condition codes over time because all the original 13 year old clamps on the vacuum lines were getting old and definitely creating very minute...

    I am posting this Q for the reason that I don't have any documentation regarding US spec cars ,which are equipped with such a device. My EU spec car doesn't come with one and my Service Manual does not mention any instructions for checking. I found the AWM wiring diagrams and I know to which ECU...

    Does any1 know how can I get rid of this CEL? The US spec ECU is looking for LDP while my EU spec car doesn't have the hardware and the wiring. Is there a way to fool the ECU with some resistor?What would be the ECU pins and the harness for the LDP? TIA!

    I am trying to sort out a vacuum leak in my 98 Passat 1.8T (AEB) and have been working through the problem. I found a leaky hose and bad check valve in the engine bay, which are now replaced but I am still getting the following codes, and they seem to always come on when I am sitting at a light...

    So I was swapping to my winter tires yesterday (no comments on timelyness please) and since my brake pad warning light goes off every month or so, i thought i would retape my excellent tape job over the sensor connections. I used some real strong black (not electrical) tape now. Thought i was...

    Is there a way to determine if I might have a potential sludge problem in my 2001.5 (1.8T with manual trans.)? I've been changing oil every 3 to 5 K at various indy shops (I have all my receipts). Used normal oil for 1st 30K until I realized I needed synthetic. Have been using the good...
