    Been searching the forum for answers and found a lot of valuable intel, thanks. I'm getting ready to order new coil sticks and spark plugs and just replace all of them at once. Swapped out the number 2 & 3 stick coils and got the code to change to Cyl 2 misfire. My concern is most of the wire...

    Hey all, I have a 2006 Passat non-HID and I did an HID conversion recently. While installing, I saw that the coating on the wiring has completely cracked and fallen off all the way through the headlight. The result is exposed wiring and a flickering passenger light that most of the time won't...

    Finished pulling the head and the pistons have a single valve scuff mark from what looks to be only one of the intake valves... No damage to the side walls or around the top... So I plan to dis-assemble the head once I get the tensioner tool. Two things... please advise on correct cleaning...

    I finally decided to check the rear sunroof drain on the driver side since I have found water accumulation in the jack well of the trunk. I believe the rear sunroof drain tube is disconnected from the rubber drain tube grommet, the nipple, just like my front one on the passenger side. Since I...

    Is there supposed to be a cover over the cabin filter, or is it all exposed on top? I just checked mine for the first time and it just drops into the tray with nothing fitting over the top. I don't really see how it forms a seal. Am I missing a part? I'd like to know before I put the new...

    I snapped off the front vacuum nipple that charges the DV. So the IM comes off in order to tap a 1/8" nipple (close enough to the OEM 3.5mm). The fuel injectors are horrid - filthy, at least externally. Sea Foam and Techron is regularly run through the appropriate engine enema steps. But how to...

    Alright, one of my good friends who is also a VW Service Advisor had his W8 chipped by SpeedtuningUSA. After a few minor changes in the program, the chip looks like a solid solution for those looking for extra power in their Passats. After doing a little more research I find out that the...

    Well, I just had to open this up and find out IF the gears were in good shape or not. To my surprise, they look just fine. I have no way of really knowing if the synchro's are still good but from driving around in the Mustang prior to this and not having any problems shifting nor going out of...

    I'll probably go with the GHL exhaust when it becomes available. I would like to go with exposed exhaust tips lke the jettas and W8 have. I don't like having the exhaust under the valence as it seems to hang down too low on a lowered car. I can cut the stock valence, that is one option. What...

    I was at a Dodge dealer buying a minivan yesterday(!), and while filling out the paperwork, one of the sales manager told me about a odometer fraud they had exposed the week prior. A guy with a Dodge Ram truck had warranty work done earlier in the week in Texas, prior to a road trip to...
