    I was painting my wheels and what not when one of the jacks I was using slipped and caused the car to slide off. It wasn't a hard crash, very slow and rested on the rear left control arm I believe. I can't see any damage but when I go to start the car it starts fine but then slowly just cuts...

    I was checking the oil level in my 2003 Passat 1.8T today, and had pulled the dip stick partially out. The bright-yellow hard plastic grip at the top of the dipstick broke apart in my hand, and a small piece of plastic fell back down the dipstick hole into the engine. What to do? I have no...

    Dear community, I tried to replace the crankcase vent valve exhaust by myself but did drop down two screws. After that the engine stopped starting. When I turn the key I do observe that lights on the panel become less bright and the starter does not spin, there is only one short click. I assume...

    The other day at my job I had my crank seal replaced (its nice being on the other end of working at a dealership finally). Everything went smooth with that and the tech stated my oil pan was leaking. So we decided to warranty it. I've always complained on how my car made a little bit of a...
