    I bought a 2003 1.8t on a whim for $300, guy says it needed a head gasket, I was rolling the dice hoping it was an oil cooler issue. I got it home this morning, its pouring down rain so I haven't had a chance to even look at it but here are the symptoms; I'm trying to get a plan of attack...

    Hey all! I am definitely having a power steering issue that has arisen. I am just not sure how to diagnose the issue. The back story: I noticed a whining noise when steering (more prominent at lower speed/parked). There is also a noticeable feeling in the steering wheel when at low...

    Hi Everyone :wrench:. Just bought a 1998 1.8 T 5 speed manual with 140K miles. The only thing the seller knew about it was it had a new clutch put in at 120K miles and the oil was changed at Jiffy Lube. :hmmm: Very clean original condition inside and out. Has all the original emergency kit...

    Well, my driver's rear door has been acting up for a while. You had to snatch on the door handle a couple of times to get it to open. I adjusted the outer handle until I was blue in the face, but could never get it to work right. Well, a few weeks ago, the door finally stopped opening (along...

    Car: 2013 CC Manual (2012 build), 16Kmiles, 1 year old. Symptoms: shifter became hard to engage in gear, especially 1st and reverse. It has become very notchy and very hard to shift. When the engine is off, shifting is perfectly smooth. What could cause this? bad transmission mounts...

    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...

    So I am trying to diagnose the source of a noise, which appears to be coming from the left rear tire area. It starts at 30mph and continues at speeds above that. At first I thought it was just tire/road noise since I drive over a lot of grooved pavement, but recently I noticed it getting...

    I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere, but I have been unable to locate, if so. 2003 B5.5 1.8T Wagon; 112K miles; CEL code P0411 SAIP is not audibly energizing upon cold start. Fuse and relay test functional on meter. SAIP energizes when directly connected to 12v power source...

    I'm working on fixing some long time nagging issues but I'd like to get thoughts from the community: 1)I was in an accident years ago (only driver's door damaged) and the body shop I went to, while they did great body work couldn't handle VW electrical systems. The problem is that the door...

    I'm working on my wife's 2003 GL 1.8t manual that has a nonworking cruise control. The cruise light comes on the dash but will not engage. Since this is the cruise by wire setup I'm assuming there are 3 possibles. 1st for $8 I just replaced the brake light switch, still does not work, but brake...

    Through reading various posts on this forum I believe I have been able to diagnose the issue that I am having but I want to be certain before I get into troubleshooting and repair work. I'm in a stock 03 Passat 1.8T. A few days ago I noticed I couldn't hear my turbo spooling up but I could hear...

    My 2000 1.8T ATW recently pulled a P1517 code. I checked my relays that my be affiliated with the problem and relay 372, the fuel pump relay, was charred and burnt up. So that is a plausible culprit but I wanted to check my main relay, however I have no idea where it is haha:D Thanks for your...

    Last week, I was on my way to work and noticed my air conditioner stopped blowing cold. I didn't think anything of it until I'm almost to work and the "STOP! Check Coolant!" light was on the dashboard. I noticed my temp gauge was all the way to the right in the red. I made it to work and as...

    Further to my last post RE- P0421 and P0413: J299 Relay operates out of car with 12V applied-resisitance of contacts is good, 40 Amp fuse is good, Vacuum operates both combo valves in turn and allows air to be blown through as expected, N112 operates when 12 volts is applied and correctly...

    For a few weeks my '03 1.8T AWM (with Giac X 1.3 bar ECU) has had ZERO boost. I mean none. Occasionally I hear the turbo spool for a second or so, but there's just no power. Suspecting a boost leak and not having a compressor, I built a makeshift test rig out of an inflation pump, a cork from a...
