Other than obvious exhaust problems (flex pipe) I was told my power steering pump could have a hand in making so much noise. I drove her about 5hrs for school without incident except for some...

    So, I recently bought a beautiful 2003 GLX V6 Wagon FWD. It's in pretty amazing condition and has been fantastic to me. Unfortunately it had a slow coolant leak. After some reading here I found that it was possibly the CTS and went to buy one. I didn't realize I should have bought a new CTS...

    Another B4 down. I got a wild deal on 3 B4s. One running the other two not. Sadly, only 3 months later - they are ALL GONE. The driver was rear ended so badly it was unfixable. One of the nonrunners didn't have a title so I stripped her, that caused the neighbors to call Code and they made...

    I have a 2005.5 Passat 1.8t. Initially when I bought the car the first two years cost me ~4k (CAN) in repairs ranging from dirty throttle bodies, blown head gaskets (timing belt and plugs replaced as a result @ 72,000km), SAIP codes galore, torn serpentine belts (my own fault) and the ever so...

    Hello - My daughters car is giving me issues. Not a mechanic but do enjoy doing some mechanic work when I have the time. I had at one time had some codes and was able to replace or clean some sensors and ran nicely. RPMs were smooth at idle at 800. I have replaced spark plugs with the...
  7. Anything Auto
    My wife's Murano is in the process of losing its CVT transmission so we've begun searching for a crossover/small SUV for her. First thing she says is "Ooo, I like the Saturn Vue!" I freaked, jumped around, and began listing reasons why she has no idea what to buy when I noticed her laughing at...

Seems weird because I thought I activated my account already. At any rate, here goes.... I recently...

    So I finally put the coilovers on. Fronts are about where I want them for now however I need to take the perches out of the rear to get that to match the fronts.

    It's an end of an era when you sell a car you love. Sold my 02 B5.5 Passat the other day due to water ingress I couldn't diagnose, CVs needing replacement, service, age, fuel use (v6) and needing new rego for a new state. I'll miss the old girl, and this forum for providing so much useful advice...

    Finally got her lowered and here's yet another horrible cell phone pic. I need to give her a good cleaning before I take better pics: Below are the old "before" pics. I know crappy cell pics don't make the best first impressions, but I'll take better ones to show her off once she is lowered...
