    Hi to all, this is a '09 Passat with a 2.0 TSI I've been solving codes one at time and now I have a misfire and multiple misfires code, however, the car runs, accelerates and feels really good. I did a live check with the VCDS while a friend was driving and I notice that when we stop at red...

    I'm trying to find if I have a boost leak. I just did a few pulls with VCDS running and the charts seem off. I'm looking a block 115 to be specific and my "specified" and "actual" boost levels peaked at 1600mbar and 1980mbar (23.2psi and 28.7psi). I thought the little K03 can only do about...

    2000 V6 30v FWD manual, always scared switching gears above 3500 RPM, sounds like it's revving too high on top of the obnoxiously loud mechanical fan especially in lower gears. When I'm on the highway, at a constant 3k rpm, I'm afraid to push it up to say 5k as it sounds like the engine is...

    The car has just over 100k and seems to be well cared for by PO. My main gripe is that from a stop or a slow coast, it literally has to wind up before engaging. By contrast, my 2001 Accord near snaps my neck when I leave a stop. Should the Tip be that way or is something amiss? It doesn't slip...

    Hey guys, quick question here. I have a 2012 Passat SE and sometimes when I'm braking softly downshifting to first gear feels a little rough, but if I brake much harder it happens much less frequently. Is this something normal or should I get something checked out?

    I have 2001 B5.5 GLS with an AWM engine, and about 140k miles on it. Recently, I've been having a few issues with it and have taken it to a local mechanic here.

    Recently installed a 24 H&R Sway Bar. It really made a huge difference in the turn-in abilities of the car. It responds now to steering inputs really well. The factory bar was small and light. I have modified every car I ever owned. This was a great choice for those of us who like to drive...

    I replaced my Air Filter and MAF sensor and got rid of my engine codes and the wastegate rattle sound while accelerating from doing that change out. Car feels like it has alot more pep except from the engine or tranny mount that needs to be replaced. The car makes a horrible thump when putting...
