    Hello, I am Michiel and own since two months a Passat EcoFuel Sportline from 2010. I love it. However, where I live we have plenty of dirt roads which make for a bumpy ride: every pebble on the road I feel. Question: is it possible to make the car a bit softer/more comfortable? And what would...

    Hey guys. 2010 with 84,500. Last night I stopped at a stop sign and accelerated too fast while it was raining. The dreaded TCS flickered with the nasty wheel hop. I noticed that the motor sounded much more pronounced. There is almost like a gurgle from the front of the car, driver?s side. I...

    The front passenger tire area seems to be making a strange sound. Visually nothing appears to be wrong with the tire. At first I thought it was a flat tire a couple days ago, but that was not the case. The sound is constant and best heard at lower speeds, though I can hear it a bit at highway...

    Hey everybody! I have an 02 Volkswagen Passat that I've owned for 5 yrs. It's turning out to be a disappointment (constant coolant leak despite fixes, oil leaking, door falling apart, weird electrical issues, AC broke, etc). Last weekend I got my AC compressor replaced (for $900) at a mechanic...

    Hey hows everyone doing, Yesterday I got my 2002 b5.5 Passat flashed with Unitronic's stage 2 software, and the power increase is insane, but I think something isn't right. This tune, according to uni, is supposed to make 18psi, I don't know if thats the spike or hold psi, but I think its...

When I watched back on the video There was this weird sound that sounded like it was coming from the boost gauge. But here is the weird thing. It can't be heard in person but only on video. Here is the...

    Hey Guys, I've been wracking my brain to find the answer for a question about some wiring on my 92 Corrado SLC. I bought it with a chunk of wiring missing and a defective coolant fan. I switched it out for a 2-fan set up from a slightly newer VR6, but was missing the plug that attaches to the...

    low oil pressure light. i did make the mistake and kept driving it home so I can work on it or attempt to. I thought it was no big deal ( I checked oil). As I pulled into my parents house it started making a loud noise and had a loss of power. It sounded like all the videos of the camshaft chain...

    Hello!! I recently purchased a 2012 CC Sport 2.0T. I'm not familiar with all the car lingo so please bear with me! :-) I love pretty much everything about the car and it was a perfect match as far as what I wanted. There's really only two things I'm wondering about...#1 the kind of loud "road...

    I'm more than likely going to be doing my wheel bearings (front) in the very near future. I have a shop press, but if anyone has done them before, could I kindly get the size of the insert I need for the press? I have various sizes, but would be up the creek if I didn't have the right one with...
