    Hey gang! Just picked up a 99' passat the other day. I managed to kill what was left of the poor clutch before I even got it home (was advised to tow), and knowing bought it with a bad transmission. On the bright side I should have the engine and transmission pulled sometime tomorrow :)! I just...

    Hey everyone. I'm looking for some advice regarding crankshaft seals. Mine has been leaking for quite some time but it increased quite a lot the last few months. This is a 1.8T AEB.

    This past Thursday I traded in my aging Passat on a CPO '11 335i xDrive, 6MT M sport. I wasn't the most active member on the boards but I certainly relied a lot on all the great knowledge in here. My Passat treated me very well over the years I owned it but after 205,000 miles, I started to...

    Got a 1.8t that I love it's a 99 but I've been told that if I push more than 11 psi on stock ecu tuning there is no benefit. So what I'm wondering is 1 can you bypass it by running different plugs and 2 where could I get my ecu flashed and how much would it be? This isn't urgent at all but I'm...

    You can't have too much fun, so I've bought my 2nd Passat, a 96 B4 TDI wagon. It needs everything fixed. Can't wait to get started. Brought the '96 home yesterday and today my '02 4motion 2.8 won't start. Go figure! Ordered Ross Tech Vag Com setup to get some answers. Without it I'm just...

    OK, the subject line is a stretch in an awkward direction. Sue me. I need to vent and share a few things for those that have scratched their heads before over all the cluster modification how-tos, what goes where, what's compatible, etc. In short, it is a cluster fcuk. I could wax on and on for...

    I had replaced the front (S1) O2 sensors on my 01 4mo wagon a few months ago, but had left the rear one which was throwing a code until things warmed up some. It was the passenger side rear O2 sensor, the one that goes up instead of sideways. Today was that day, and I had almost got it done. I...
