    My car is having heating problems still and I want you VW genius' help to fix it rather than get screwed by my dealer or local mechanic. For the past 4 months it doesn't blow heat - only once in a great while. And then not for long. Yes, I've searched the posts and also posted earlier but...

    They always get me excited with their extremely low prices on high(er) valued cars. I saw this add listed for $1,700 and instantly clicked, only to see this.. VW Passat 4 Motion Wagon Probably listed in 27 other cities with the exact same add and email... Bottom line, I hate scammers. Steal...

    For any of you out there that are as stupid as me and think you can get by without a triple square when it's called for. This is one of the screws the holds the rear lock module to the door. One bolt came out with a 6mm allen, but this one didn't. Needless to say, I had to dremel slots in...

    On Saturday when I started my passat 2000 1.8, it went crazy: the car body shaken very badly which was caused by the engine ; lots of noise came from the engine and timing belt; the exhaust pipe seemed to be congested and was also noisy; the check engine light (CEL) kept flashing...:mad: In...

    Oh God! What have i done? Well, I took the 2-day old Passat in today for inspection at Firestone, and figured I'd do my initial oil change at once. Normally, I wouldn't do an oil change at Firestone, but for some reason, I did today. The firestone guy brings some oil in a plastic cup. I almost...
  14. The Black Hole Please tell me why it's a good thing that over 2000 working Americans are suddenly told they will not be paid because of one senator? Why not just furlough 2000 of his own constituents?

    My pump is fine, and I'm pretty sure my combi-valve is good too. My next diagnosis is the N112 solenoid or vacuum hoses. On ETKA it shows the one end capped off, the other end going to that double house thingy. And the oddball end going to a T fitting with the hose's going some where I can't...

    Since putting on the Votex kit my car has reminded me of something but I can never quite put my finger on what it is. Until now... Today I had two women I know tell me that it looks "cute" now. They said it looks like a sneaker! :icon_eek: God help me I think they're right... :(

    So I was taking out my passenger rear map light to check what bulb was in it (had to double check sylvania). So I pull it out and this is what i got: Well I don't think its broke. I just have no clue on how to put it back together and put it back in. Anybody else know how to do this? i just...
