    Hey guys. So my Passat (2008 2.0t fsi) broke down in the middle of a busy street about 2 to 3 weeks ago. Couldn't jump it. Replaced it with Auto-zone Duralast Gold battery (I know, not a good brand to begin with), car started and ran. Gave me problems on Sunday when I was driving home on the...

    This is my first post - so thanks in advance to all help given! (2000 Passat wagon with 1.8t and manual trans) A couple days ago I came across a guy in a parking lot with a dead battery - so I did the Good Samaritan thing and gave him a jump. After I hooked my battery up and had the black...

    2000 Passat wagon with 1.8t and manual trans... A couple days ago I came across a guy in a parking lot with a dead battery - so I did the Good Samaritan thing and gave him a jump. After I hooked my battery up and had the black (neg) lead in hand to put on his battery I asked him which was his...

    Yes, the midwest storm is as crazy as the news tells you... My car wouldn't start so I had a tow truck come by and jump it. He used a jump box and had to have the engine grind for a good 45 seconds to a minute before it finally came to life. While it was grinding I saw the following on my...

    Back in the winter, I gave a friend a ride in my 1999 Passat GLS and while getting out, they managed to bump into the sunroof shade pretty hard. It wasn't until a nice day in spring when I tried to open it that I noticed the problem. I think the shade jumped the tracks or something - it will...

    I know that this is more of a garage post, but I was hoping more people would see it here. I just put the new t-belt on. I double-checked to make sure all the timing marks were lined up and they were. I pulled the pin on the tension and then checked the marks again. they were still lined up...

    I drove to work in the morning and it started fine. Met a friend for lunch and it started fine. Went to a resturant, ate lunch, came out an hour later and it wouldn't start. All electronics work fine, it just won't turn over. Starter is not engaging. Tried to jump the battery - nothing. Checked...
