    So I did my transmission filter & fluid change, and not knowing any better, I screwed myself & put in Redline fluid. Ever since, It's slipped, mostly when it's cold, and gets mostly better once it warms up. Then one day I found a post with someone saying that Redling is notorious for causing...

    Monday evening, my daughter was sitting in a fast food drive-thru 2 hours away when she heard hissing, saw vapors, and the check engine light started flashing. She quickly pulled into a parking place and shut it down. When she called me, she said she opened the hood and saw that the expansion...

    (For some reason I am not authorized to post in the "Classified" forum so here it is...) I have gotten rid of my friendly Passat. I'm going through a bit of grief. But anyway, I have about 1/2 gallon of G12 and 1/2 pint of power steering fluid I won't be needing anymore. If anyone wants to...

    OK guys, so I did it. I dropped the pan and wiped the magnets with a lint free cloth. Was it worth it? I want you to answer that. So I bought the car (2004 passat 1.8L wagon) just a few months ago for $1600, it had been in a slight accident (she hit the curb), the control arm was replaced and it...

    I am trying to learn to use the lite version of Vag-Com with a cheap ebay USB cable. The only reason I want this is to get the temp right for filling transmission. Does Vag-Com also tell you the level of transmission fluid, or can is it flowing out the only way to know? Thanks!

    I have a 2001 VW Passat AUG with Auto Trans. The last few weeks the transmission started acting up. The car felt like it didn't have enough power at lower rpms and would stutter like it was in too high of a gear. As soon as I increased rpms it would go away. I could also get it to go away by...

    Just bought this B5 wagon over the weekend. Had a whining noise when the engine was on but it drove fine besides the noise. I was able to drive the car down some nice curvy road to get to the freeway. the whine starts to quiet as speed increases. Got on the freeway and initially took it easy but...

    I am going to order the filter and gaskets for the transmission fluid change. I see HUGE differences in pricing between a factory filter and the aftermarket brands. ECS lists genuine VW/Audi gasket and filter at $161.21 - which is absurd for this type of part! So we have: VW/Audi...

    First off I’m not sure if it matters but the car in question is a 2000 4motion v6 with 150,000 miles. The first time I noticed this problem I smelt a burning “clutch” smell a few times after parking my car after a 20-mile highway drive to school. Looking into it there are no trans leaks nor is...
