    Hi All, I have a 2002 TDI Sport - which used to run well - but has now sustained frost damage (no antifreeze in the coolant :banghead:) I've replaced the radiator but now, there is oil in the water. I suspect the oil cooler - do you know if a deep freeze can knacker the oil cooler? :confused...

    My wife's 09 Kia Sedona has a brake issue. On mornings when it's cold, less than 10 degrees, the brake pedal is really hard to push and the van doesn't want to stop at all down the driveway. You have to give it a couple of hard pushes to loosen it up. After that the pedal feels normal and it...

    I see the engine block has a single 36.6mm freeze plug but I can't find any info on where it is located. I tried searching but didn't find anything useful and it looks like the search functionality just stopped working. The wife's car has a slow coolant leak so I'm beginning the search for...

    I have this code that keeps coming up on my car. It is P2181. I posted about it a while back when I replaced my coolant sensor. As it says in that thread changing the temp sensor seemed to work for a while but now the code is back. I bought a device called an ELM327 bluetooth adapter on eBay...

    Hi all. I've been looking at a lot of conventional OBDII scanners recently. I recently decided on an Equus 3130 which has live data and freeze frame if I were to buy one. They run $127 +tax from Amazon. However just today I've discovered that there are OBDII scanners which interface with a...

    For the last few days I have been getting a CEL P0430. It came on 4 days ago after a long trip to Vegas. It was like 110 degres there so I just cleared the CEL with my scanner which I carry with me all the time now. The light stayed off all the way home (350miles) and all day yesterday but today...

    Where are the freeze plugs located on the engine? Specifically, the rear? Within the bell housing? TIA

    2000 GLX V6 113,000 miles. Few months ago i had P1176 come up, i would always tighten the gas-cap and it would seem to go away for a few months. It hasn't come back but now i am getting P1177. To me it doesn't make sense that either both cats have gone bad or both 02 sensors are bad. Once again...

    I am looking at purchasing a 97 V6 Passat Wagon, 100,000 miles that has leaking freeze plugs. I would have to do this repair myself. Will I have to pull the engine to get to them all? any thought appreciated. t

    Just wondering if anyone here has used this stuff to recharge their AC? I bought some @ Target while I was on a recent road trip down to the US as my AC was out or coolness but have not used it yet just in case. Cheers Arctic Freeze Ultra Synthetic Auto Air Conditioning R134A+ Refrigerant...

    I have been told my Inners are shot, So I have a few questions on changing these bad boys. 1. What size is the Inner head (22mm 24mm)? 2. Do the Inners Freeze into the steering rack? 3. If answer 2 is yes, whats the best way to break them without heating (without trashing the steering rack)...

    It happened today to my 2002.5 1.8T, up here in frigid Toronto (-23 celsius this morning). No problem warming up and driving to work this AM, but it came on after I fired it up to drive home at 6 PM (-14C). I let it warm up too long (I know that's a no-no, but it was soooo cold the oil in the...

    Every few days or so, when I turn on a blinker (right or left), the arrow doesn't blink and it just stays lit (as do the actual head and tail lights). I've noticed that if I press the hazard button 3 or 4 times, the blinkers will eventually start working again. (The first few times I press the...
