    Still doing some short test drives after replacing oil pump (minor oil leaks to fix :banghead:). While driving through a strip-mall, the STOP low coolant light came on. I was 1/4" mile from Autozone so I pulled in. Popped the hood and the coolant reservoir was empty but sprayed all over. The top...

    Hi, Noob here. Coming over from Fred's Tdi. I sadly sold my 2006 Jetta Tdi. 152,000 trouble free miles. :) I wanted to find a late model Passat, black exterior and interior, TDi, six speed manual. Figured it would be impossible to fine that combo. Got on auto trader and found a 2015...

    Hello all, I have a 2001 1.8T AUG with a manual FWD. I was driving home tonight and heard an unusual ticking from the engine at idle. I got home, popped the hood and started poking around. The tick was coming from the front of the engine so I shut it down and pulled the plastic cover off the...

    I just bought a 1998 sedan three weeks ago and where I live (greater Vancouver) you have to do Aircare which is just an emissions inspection. Since its 1998 and newer it didn't actually need emissions just a diagnostic test. I should have known by my check engine light that there would be...

    My CEL has been on forever, with loss of power and all kinds of issues. Took it to the stealership today (no indies in my area, that I know of :thumbdown). I have been searching on PW for awhile to see if anyone has had my symptoms, and most all have said new coilpacks and all kinds of other...

    Lucky Me (Update) Today I finally put on my tinted tails, within minutes I'm cruising down the street and a Hampton cop pulls me over to give me a warning for them being too dark. The only thing that saved me was that I had my OEM tails in the backseat. I'm taking them off now but I'll put them...

    So, to make a wonderful story short, i'll begin by letting you know that i got to drive a fully loaded S4 Avant and the new Q7 also completely loaded with every feature. My buddy works in downtown Toronto at BMO (bank) and always tells me about the crazy cars he sees in the parking garage...

    Some of you may have seen this already, but I saw this on the Today show this morning. Click the link, over on the right hand side it is the second video from left. I got goosebumps watching it this morning. Anyone who has been in a serious accident knows that second of sheer terror before...

    I got the infamous "STOP. Low oil pressure" light last week while I was driving to work. So I came here and check for sludge threats and then called my advisor at the dealer, same verdict. :banghead: I took the car same day (Friday) and he told me to leave it there to see if he can slip this...

    I have a Mr. Greek Restaurant in Brampton, Ontario. It's about an hour out of Toronto and I was working at that location on Tuesday June 24 and arrived a little early to work so I figured I go for a little walk down the road, on the sidewalk of course. As I was walking, I came up to a VW/AUDI...
