  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I left town for a few days and my B5 was feeling lonely, because my wife took it out for a drive (she hit a deer for minor damage the previous day), and it went into misfire when she tried to come home. (Shaking, blinking CEL, you know the drill...) I've had trouble finding a good indy, so I...

    I seem to have a coolant leak, but there is no sign of the coolant leaking in the garage/floor, other than having to fill up the reservoir tank twice a month. I have checked the reservoir tank the last time I was under the hood, by feeling for any wetness and there was none. I know there are...

    I realized I hadn't had a car rant thread in a while, so here is my review of my latest vehicle conquest, a 2013 Toy... err... Scion XB (not sure what release edition, but it had some kind of body kit) About 8 weeks ago, I was driving on the freeway, minding my own business in the 5.5. NPR on...

    I bought the basic APR kit for my AEB engine (91 program) about a year ago. New OEM spark plugs (NGP, I believe), new vac lines & checks, new timing belt stuff, and a new TT DV were installed at the time of chipping. Stock intake. Immediately, I noticed that the engine had much more power, but...

    I'm sure theres a few others with this same concern... I took advantage of the great deal @ ECS and purchased the DG springs but I'm not clear how good or bad the ride will be with the stock shocks. Who has had personal experience with this? I've yet to own a car without coil-overs or sport...

    Alright so I am trying to replace my rear brake pads on my 1998 VW Passat. I got the calipers off and the old brake pads out but I can't get the pistons to retract.
