    So today I went in and got my resonator replaced with a straight pipe and it did almost nothing... :( What can I do now to make it louder? I'm punching myself in the face because I just wasted 50 bucks... Any ideas let me know. Thanks.

    My car started making a really loud noise along with a clicking sound of something in the fan. It is prevalent when I accelerate, and you can hear how loud it is in the video. The alternator was changed about a year ago. Maybe someone can figure out what is going on, or what to try. I am a...

    Ok so I want to get a good exhaust set up going for my car (2.8L v6). I was thinking about cutting out the res and the muffler and doing a straight pipe from the cat. I'm assuming that it would be stupid loud with no muffler on though, or would it be bearable? Would i be better of just getting...

    Well, I am still working on my 2.5" exhaust. Thanks to someone I will not name, i didn't get the TT 2.5" down pipe (used), so i forked up the brand new one from Germanautoparts.com (cheapest I can find new). Put on the test pipe, down pipe and straight to a magna flow exhaust. I also...

    My 2004 VW Passat (1.8T) started idling rough this evening. By the time I got home the CEL came with the code P0171 (System too lean) When idling, I hear a load sound. It sounds like compressed air escaping. However, when I accelerate, it seems to go away. I read something about vacuum hoses...

    The car sounds very similar to a diesel after starting. This lasts for about 5-10 minutes and then quiets down. The car only has 60,000 miles and there have been no warning lights. I've taken it in to VW for other issues and they have never mentioned anything. I don't think it's a serious...

    SO I was driving home today and when i made a left turn i heard a loud bang noise and then my car started driving weird. When I let the wheel go the car would track hard to the left. I had to turn the wheel halfway to the right to keep the car going straight. I also tried to make another left...

    First off let me say I know nothing about cars, i am a computer nerd and don't have a very strong understanding of cars except that they're a lot like computers. My car recently had some work done on it thanks to the oil change shop overfilling my tank and causing a few seals to burst, luckily...

    I have a 2005 V6 wagon with just under 100K on it. I bought this vehicle about 2 months ago. My question is, how loud should this car be? The exhaust is so loud now that it drowns out just about everything else while driving. I was out of town for about 2 weeks and the car was not driven...

    My Passat's engine has been noticeably louder (I think) after getting it back from having the oil pump bolt/timing failure fixed. It does this at idle cold or warm. I posted a vid: What do you guys think?

    Hello all, I'm the owner of a 2005 Passat GLX 4motion 6-cyl, which has the Monsoon premium factory system installed. For several months now, whenever I'm starting the vehicle up I'm getting an extremely loud "POP" coming through the speakers, almost as if the system's amplifier is sending a...

    When I brake very hard there is a loud heavy sounding bang coming from the front somewhere. Then I get back on the gas hard, in a low gear, the bang happens again. What ever it is returning to its original position. Cant see any fluid from engine mounts (No excessive movement on stick shift. &...
