    Today I noticed that my torque converter hadn't locked; when locked, the tach and speedometer should move in unison, but the engine speed was clearly dropping or rising with throttle movement. No codes either, otherwise perfectly normal shifts. I went for a test drive with the VAG-COM hooked...

    So I had recently done some work to my wife's B6 A4. Coolant flange to be exact. I knew it needed a CCT and VCG but I was waiting for some time to do it. That was likely the cause for the flange o-ring failure in the first place. One month later, the flange is leaking again. I figure that...

    After doing a heater core flush with CLR I came back to this forum to peruse the posts in the garage. For grins I search on heater core flush, I came upon some posts that recommend a rinse with baking soda after an acid flush which makes good sense. I am wondering if I should do the same now or...

    Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration. I am referring to the yellow rear turn signals. It appears that the clear outer lenses below the tail lights are supposed to be yellow turn signals. The housing, however appears to be empty and the red tail lights double as turn signals. Awful! Here...

    I did a timing belt job today and i forgot to mix the g12 with h20, i took the car for a ride to see how it was doing after replacing the belts and the coolant light came on. I looked at the resevoir and it was low, doh, i forgot the water. Can i just go add the water now, or does it NEED to be...

    So I did my V6's passenger side engine mount. When I reassembled everything, apparently I forgot the washer that goes between the upper part of the mount and the engine bracket. It was easy to forget, as it was pretty much bonded to the top of the mount and I had to pry it off with pliers. The...

    Prior to buying my M35, I used this website to compare new car prices (invoice and MSRP). It had the "auto" in the url. It showed options the way a dealer would package options and you could add/subtract options to get the configuration you wanted. I know it sounds really vague but it's not...

    Hi all. I removed the bumper cover on my 2000 and put it back on this afternoon, but I forgot to reconnect the hood latch handle -- the one on which you pull to open the hood. I know, I know .. It was getting dark and I just wanted to be done. Now I can't pop the hood open, and I guess I'm just...
