    My younger son's 2000 S4 is a great car, except that it takes a long time to fill the gas tank, because the gas pump automatically shuts off unless one pumps gas either in bursts or in an extremely slow steady stream. We have cleaned and inspected the charcoal canister and been told the problem...

    I was a little reluctant to try changing the oil on my new Passat Wolfsburg with the 1.8 Turbo Gasoline motor. I couldn't find any instructions. Turns out it is the easiest oil change I have ever done! First the filter, VW part number 06L 115 562, is located on the left hand side of the...

    I've run across a number of articles about the new 15% Ethanol blended fuel. The EPA says it's OK to put in passenger cars from 2001 and newer. The auto makers (basically all of them) are saying this will damage the car and void the warranty. The auto makers are saying flex-fuel vehicles and...

    What would cause a strong raw gasoline odor outside of a 2002 VW Passat AWD V6, ONLY when parked and not running, and ONLY with a full gas tank of gas? Absolutely no fuel leak is detected, and there are NO fault codes. When tank get down to about 3/4, it goes away, and all is well! And I know...

    Pretty much the question, also, what precautions to take against asbestos? How serious of a risk is it really? Finally, how do I get that damn parking brake cable off when doing rear brakes? I can't seem to get clip out. I would ask this in B5, but they are pretty tired of the noob questions...
