    I recently bought a 1998 1.8T Passat with 117,000 miles. The previous owner told me that the turbo had not worked in the three years they owned it. I live in Nebraska and bought the car in Utah. Before I left Utah to drive home I changed the oil and the oil filter. I replaced the air filter and...

    Any view on this ladies and gents? My local dealership seems to have the ability to check and clear codes, do a TBA but not much else. Is that the limit of a typical dealers diagnostics, or are the front of house staff suffering from a knowledge deficiency? I have read about fuel trim...

    I put the car into the local garage as the ABS light is on but they've come back saying there's no communication with the Bosch KTS diagnostics. They think it's a fauty ABS ECU. What are my options? Has anyone tried this fix...

    What is the difference between Vag 1552 and Vag 1652 Diagnostic Tools? From what I read the Vag 1652 is a China copy of the Vag 1552, the latter being hard to come by. Should I buy a Vag 1652 and what is the price range? Will they work on a VW Passat B5.5 from 2004?

The car had been idle for about a day and...
