    Wondering if all the leaves that mulched under the hood beneath the battery section cover and behind my front fenderliners is due to the kinds of trees I park under? They have smaller leaves, possibly unique to the Sacramento Valley. :confused:

    First off, 2005 1.8T SW 84k miles. In my youth I turned many a wrench attempting to get a variety of VW Beetles to do things they are not supposed to do. Bought the Passat used in 2007- has been a magnificent car...until now. Bottom Line: Mechanic claims that I need two engine mounts, a...

    I had my Passat for about a month now and I loved it unbelievably much. I took care of it morning and night. Cleaned every little spot on it. Did everything to maintain it in excellent condition.

    My wife and I were out in my wagon yesterday. While driving the temp and gas gauge were normal. We parked, went into a store and came out then started driving again when I noticed that the temp gauge was past 190 into the 200 range. Not only that, my gas gauge, which had been on empty and in the...

    My son's 2002 1.8T 5sp wagon has a blown slave cylinder and is at VW dealership for repairs. Unfortunately, the car is over 350 miles away and I have to trust what the dealer is telling me about the car as I have no way to verify their statements. The only think I do know for sure is that the...

    My fuel line cracked right above the CAT, and sprayed a lot of gas everywhere. It's amazing that I didn't die in a fireball. I was wondering if this had happened to anyone else, the breaking part, as I assume if you died in a fireball you wouldn't be on the forums. Thanks!

    We were loading our 2001 B5 Passat sedan this morning before heading off to airport. After we put all the luggage into trunk, my wife shut the lid. There was an unusual clunk sound, the next thing we know was that the trunk lid would not open any more. If we use keyfob or the switch on the...

    What would happen if I put some custom headers that went through the hood of my car, pretty much just pipe from the engine up?

    This happened to my Passat on the way home from work :( I'll just keep it simple and say I was mad and powershifted 2 to 3 and this is what resulted. I never beat the car since its my daily either but, the one time I decide to powershift it... So I'm wondering what my options? lol Get a new...

    Hey all, '98 V6 engine here. I didn't get many replies in the following thread, which has more detail. Please take a quick look--I've basically ruled out the SAIP: Now that I have a VAG-com, the only code I'm showing...
