    Do you want an extra $1,000 or 5,000 in your pocket, if not more? "This car is a money pit", " I am done with it", "Expensive non reliable piece of junk", "The worst car I ever had", " I fed up!!!", "Is it time to get rid of it?" e.t.c. Most of the times it is not a...

    We are talking about a money pit. So this time around I have noticed, that the rpm started to change, maybe 150-200 while I was driving down on the road. Constant speed, no hills, no traffic. Ok, let's try the cruise. Same thing. The rpm is between 2500 and 3000. Another day: it got worse, the...

    So, it happened, my car died. This is my second Passat and it's died on me now for the first and only time. It overheated today and the heads are bent, oil in the coolant etc. After a 3-hour ordeal a mechanic advised me to total it and take what I can get. Should I sell it to a scrap yard...

    So winter time is always great for little projects. I decided to do this while I had the front bumper off. The SMIC is a pain in the ass to remove due to the washer fluid tank but you don't have to remove it to clean it out, just disconnect the top and bottom boost hoses. I took four cans of...

That's all well and good but I see green antifreeze in there too... yea :( .So...

    Hi Again, I want to take this time to warn everyone, that if your on a tight budget for car parts, dont skimp on buying good shock absorbers. STAGG shocks are absolute RUBBISH. I know, I bought some. Literally has NO rebound control, the shaft was too long and created a knocking (like the Koni...
