    Hello Everyone, Last Friday I bought an automatic 1.8 Turbo Sport Estate. I'm not quite sure how VW managed to name it Sport though. It drives beautifully and I love it apart from a battery drain fault that I can't fathom out. The car's nearly 17 years old but has a documented 68000 miles and...

    I have a 2000 v6 passat and recently my battery is not holding a charge. I just had it tested as it is less than 2 hrs old and they said it is good. I haven't added anything to the car that would cause the battery to drain. Was it a faulty battery test or could it be something else? Sent...

    Both of my fronts are out (no water comes out of the nipples in the door jamb) and I have no idea what to think about the rears. The water starts draining out of the bottom of the car almost right away, but in two totally different places on the different sides, and, based on my research here...

    Need some help fixing my 2010 passat 2.0turbo. Had a completely dead battery yesterday. Replaced it and after driving it and it sitting for about an hour the radiator fans turned on full force. From what I've read it might be a cooling fan relay but having a hard locating that. Can anyone help...

    The tray where the battery sits under the hood at the base of the windshield becomes a pool when it rains alot. There must be a drain for the rainwater to be able to get out but I have not located it. Does anyone know which side it is on? 2001 V-6 Passat. Maybe under the battery or the box...

    2005 Passat 1.8t ~120k miles. I've suspected a small coolant leak for some time because I've had to top it off a couple times. However, I got the "STOP" warning this morning and when I stopped and opened the hood, coolant was literally "draining" from the front part of the engine. I couldn't...

    Ok, I'm replacing the low pressure hose (cooler to reservoir) on my 99 V6. Simple question: can I just pull the hose, and plug with my finger? Or do I need to drain/flush the system? Probably a stupid question, but I'm just making sure - don't know if introducing air or something will mess...

    2002 GLX If my car sits overnight it won't start in the morning. If I unhook the battery cable at night and then hook it up in the morning it starts just fine. To troubleshoot I've left the battery hooked up and have removed several fuses from the fuse box each night and then re-install...

    Hello, My sister's 2001 V6 Passat Wagon's driver's side door switches / controls are permanently illuminated, even after ignition key is removed and eventually drains battery if car isn't started in a few days. I've searched through all the forums and haven't found any situations like this one...

    Hi, I have a 2001 Passat with 88K miles on it and a LONG laundry list of issues. Most are resolvable, but there is one issue that is confusing me. I've had a few mornings where the car is completely dead, no clicking, no nothing, but starts up fine on a jump. I had started to notice that when I...

    I changed the coolant flange at the back of head and needed to drain and save the coolant. While doing this I discovered a neat trick. The little coolant hose that runs from the upper coolant pipe to the expansion tank is the perfect diameter to connect to the radiator drain nipple and just the...
