    This one is too odd for me to attempt. I drained the oil (wasn't dirty at all) and simultaneously there was "venting" noise coming through my cold air intake. The noise lasted about 3/4 of the time the oil was draining. I have a PCV delete to a catch can but dont have the catch can vented to...

Very simple task, I would hope. I found out the following from a VW dealer when calling for a harness. If I change the monsoon...

    When I got out of my car last night after turning it off, I noticed a loud fan noise. I recognized it from the last time my battery died as one of the large fans right behind the front grill whirring very fast. I was worried that if I left the battery connected, the fan would drain it, so I...

    Ok...So I made the big (dumb, newbie) mistake of mistaking the transmission oil pan (black, rectangular pan just behind belly cover with torx wrench fastener, right?) for the motor oil pan and drained transmission fluid...or so I think...ahh..if this is in fact the case, how would I go about...

    I hate working on this car, it defies all American car logic. I can't believe they make you take a plastic cover off just to change the oil. Well I drained the trans, I'm looking at it thinking man that's too clean looking. Of course there is NOTHING in the owner's manual about oil change and...
