    Couldn't find a thread related. So I was thinking of just doing a motor swap vs. Head gasket with a risk of having to get a new head, but the amount of labor hours that was quoted for the swap seems like a crazy amount to me. Can anyone out there give an accurate amount of hours for an 03...

    I have a 2002 Passat B5.5 1.8T AWM engine, and my cam chain tensioner needs to be replaced. I talked to two local shops that I had been before and one of them quoted me 7 hours of labor and the other said 5-6 hours of labor. The DIY below doesn't seem to take that long, especially for an...

    Today I got a couple of quotes to change the control arms and tie rods. They came up to around $600 labor only if I bring my own parts. Is this reasonable? I'm thinking to change them myself but then again these are critical parts and given I go long distance on highway I'm a bit hesitant to...

    For the past 1 month or so, each time the gas cap open warning resets itself, the CEL comes on and vice-versa. I just continue to ignore it. So I decided to get the stupid CEL diagnosed today and there goes the call from the dealer shop..The service mgr said I'll need N80 Valve Intake Valve...

    As I've only contacted two local shops (within 20 miles), only one of those seemed reasonable at general hourly charges. I'd rather hear a flat rate for the labor to install new control arms, tie rods, Axel, but if anyone could shed some experience what reasonable prices to expect so i'm not as...
