    I was slightly hit from behind while waiting at a stop sign. The lady driving behind me left her foot off her break and hit me at less than 5MPH. I felt the impact and thinking there was gonna be damage. I couldn't believe when I got out to look there was no damage at all except for some slight...

    We've all had situations where we couldn't avoid hitting something due to speed, safety comfort (risk taking), etc. About two weeks ago, driving on a Sunday afternoon (w/ sun at bad angle), guard rail on the right, semi-truck in passing lane, running 60-65...I first noticed the object about 1/4...

    Need an opinion. Last night coming home a deer jumped out and hit me. I have a 2001 B5.5 V6. The damage is bent hood and all the plastic on the front grill is broken. Bigger issue is now the radiator is bent where the deer hit it. It looks like it is cracked and leaking at the joint on the...

    Hi all. I am new to this forum but have benefited greatly from this site. I have an 04 Passat, 4-cyl, 1.8 Liter Turbo engine and I have worked on it quite a bit. I have a problem now and I am at a dead end. The issue started with a dead ignition coil (via rough idling, flashing CEL). When I went...

    Title says it all! As much as I love this car I'm hoping to sell it within the next 10-20 thousand miles for an Audi A6. The only thing it needs is tire rotation, alignment, tires need to be rebalanced, fuel filter change, and the coolant reservoir needs to be replaced.

    With the exception of a fuel pump that died instantly and completely (stranding the wife, not me :) ) my Passat has been stone cold reliable over the past 12 years and 160,000 miles. Almost too much so. I am on a number of original parts that I am worried will come home to hit me with a stream...

    Hi everyone, Just recently joined the forum to ask a question about injectors. For a bit of fun, I decided to attempt decapping the injectors in my AEB 1.8t B5 with a dremel. Seemed to work alright. Can drive around when staying off boost. However when the engine is about to hit boost, it...

    I have 2001 B5.5 GLS with an AWM engine, and about 140k miles on it. Recently, I've been having a few issues with it and have taken it to a local mechanic here. Some of the things that were replaced recently has been the PCV Valve and related tubing, the crank speed sensor, and spark plugs to...

    The city streets are in pretty bad shape after this winter. I drove over a pretty rough patch, and then the check engine light went on. It's still coming on today after sitting all night. I'm hoping that there is an connection -- seems like a bit of a coincedence. And and easy fix such as to...

    I will remove fuel pump and hit it with a hammer a few times. Fuel pump is dead, if I am lucky, hammer trick will work.

    My 6 banger was a victim of 2 hit and runs within a 3 month period. And there is nothing I can do about it. :( Deductible insurance coverage is high and a rate increase is likely incase I report it. So Im gonna try to fix it some other way. Anyways my V6 got hit at the driver side front fender...
