    I had my timing belt changed in June 2008 at 102,000. My car now has 129,920 miles. Do you think I could wait till 180,000-200,000 miles to get the timing belt and water pump changed again or should I change it sooner because of the time interval that has already passed.

    I know, I posted alot stuff but It important to ask yall before too late. My car is 2003 passat 1.8t automatic. I need to know which company I should buy timing belt kits with water pump from? I know it cost alot but i not for sure. I'm sure VW dealer will cost twice than other place. Thanks!

    I posted this in my build thread, but I think it warrants a thread of it's own in case anyone makes the same mistake that I nearly made. Long story short, I had stripped the head and was re-installing everything when I noticed that I couldn't get the cam belt sprocket and the two timing marks on...

    I have an '01 Passat 4 cyl turbo with the 5 speed. My wife had an accident in the car back in January, we've had the plastic dust cover that goes on the bottom of the engine compartment sitting in the trunk since then. How useful or necessary is it? I just found out that I'm missing most of the...

    Just a note to those with the 4Motion setup. I maintained my 2000 v6 B5 better than the recommended maintenance intervals. Except for one item, the fluid in the tail end of the transmission where the Torsen 4Motion setup is. I never bothered with it because the fill plug was up over the exhaust...
