    I thought I saw a post or thread on this but I can't find it. Here is my problem: on the down stroke of the drivers side wiper it misses a section in the last third of the cycle. The missed area increases at highway speeds. I replaced my wiper blades and it got worse. It is as though the wiper...

    After its first car wash this winter... What do you guys think of washing cars in the winter? Thankfully it was 5°c (42°F) outside today so no freezing temperatures = no freezing water = hopefully no rust being caused by this. I guess in the end it's better to keep the salt off the...

    My MkIII GTI just went down the road to a new home. We really needed to convert it into cash, but I miss it already. The things a guy winds up doing for his family!

    Ok, I have read way to many threads on this and can not find a fix. The car started to run very ruff at idle but was still running great on the HWY. When I would stop at a light it would begin to shake really bad and the the warning light flashed and stayed on. I hooked up a code reader and the...

    Well, the wind storm last night came within a few feet of mangling my car; but I got lucky(Sorry for the photo quality, but it was pouring at 0715 this morning): Just to show how big the limb was:

    Now that it's warmer, my 2001 passat has developed an annoying problem. Sometimes, right after startup, I'm getting what feels like a miss for 30-45 seconds. It's very intermittent and always goes away so far. Sometimes it will happen after the 1st start of the day and sometime it'll happen...

    Nope. Betty's not dead yet. Not even close. But she will be missed when she goes. It's been with me from Atlanta to Maine to Seattle to LA on cross country road trips. Carries my bikes, supplies me with plenty of AC current from an inverter I built into the trunk. Charges a Streamlight when I'm...

    Hi all, I have a 2000 V-6. The engine misses or "hiccups" randomly, maybe once every couple of minutes or so. No CEL or messages of any kind have flashed up. Does this mean there are no codes to read, or should I take it to the shop for a VAG-COM session? The car is (over)due for new spark...

    While idling 2 of my cylinders don't fire (the front and back on the drivers side) not sure which #'s. Anyway this is only at idle. Once you give it a little gas its smooth. I've driven very far like this and so long as your driving the engine pulls like new. What could causing this? Also...

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/ny-etmiss2112675670apr20,0,2777847.story So Miss California probably lost the Miss USA crown the other night because of her response to Perez Hilton's question regarding gay marriage. She responded that she believes marriage should be between a man...

    I have a strong smell of exhaust in the cabin, and from what you all say, that is related to the pcv system. I also have a hard cold start, and a multi-cylinder miss at idle even when warm. ECT sensor checks ok. No change in miss when MAF is unplugged. No other codes than P0300. I found a tear...
