    I took my car on a drive for 15 minutes and these are the levels I got. Max speed I went was 45-50 mph. It's a 2002 V6 ATQ I surprisingly haven't had a check engine light yet and my secondary air system has been "complete" according to the OBD II

Also I checked on my tourque app and it said max maf readin was 187g/s so is that my max spike is 19??? The guy...

    Hi all, I have a 2002 1.8 T, automatic. My oil level indicates low (below the min./max. mark)on the dipstick very quickly even after an oil change. I just bought the car and had the engine checked by VW mechanic, he says it's one of the cleanest he's seen and no indication of oil leaks. I...

    So I'm buying new tires and rims to upgrade the looks of my Passat. I was wondering, do I need to change how much air I put into my tires or do I still go by factory recommendations? Can someone with this sort of expertise please let me know as soon as possible? I'm getting them next week some...

    I posted last year about this issue I'm having and didn't get far with it. I have a 2003 AWM 5SP with 82k miles. I have a Revo tune (Boost 6, Timing 1), 710N DV, a new N75K and MAF and a K&N drop in. I'm running NGK BKR6E plugs gapped at .028. (also tried BKR7E) Everything else is stock...

    Just a reminder (and heads up for newbies). If you have a factory VW battery, go out and check the fluid levels. All you need to do is remove the tray cover, cut the sticker around each battery cap and unscrew each one with a quarter. Look down inside with a flashlight and make sure the levels...

    If yes, how? My `99 AEB is very lazy. Trying to find out if the turbo is working at all. Also, it might be related, every time the engine is decelerating there`s a metallic rattle comming from the wastegate area. Any inputs apriciated Rob

    Does anybody on here with VAG-COM know if it shows boost levels as you are driving? The reason I ask is my 1.8T seems lacking, especially when I compare it to driving my old Golf 1.8T (my dad owns it now so I still get to drive it). The golf gives you much more of a punch in the back when you...

    Well doing my regular check of the fluids (oil, brake fluid, coolant, ect.) i noticed (and its been like this for a while no leaks or anything) that my brake and coolant levels are not on the MIN lines but closer to the MIN than to the MAX should i keep those levels in the middle or up on MAX...
