    Somewhat odd question, but would we all agree that a detailed dis-assembly of the puck valve might be useful? I just replaced mine and was planning to disassemble it for my own curiousity but figured I could make quite a detailed post if it would be of any use. Yay or nay?

    If you go start your car right now will your check engine light be on? I'm curious to see what percentage of people cruise around having to see that friendly orange glow... maybe we can reduce a little anxiety if we know we're not alone. Just put a "Yes" or "No" at the top of your reply, then...

    I'm not looking to start another oil war, just want to take a simple poll. I'm deciding which of these three 502.00 oils to use, (I can get them all about the same price), and would like to know which others think is the best. If you could post just: Castrol Syntec 5w-40 or Mobil 1 0w-40 or...

    So a friend of mine has a 2000 GLX Jetta (VR6). He's in the process of replacing his clutch at 200K, so he posed the question. What else is likely to go wrong and should I just let it go now? All of us having been on that position before, knows you can't predict the future, but are able to...

    The wheels are ready to have the "windows" painted gunmetal and I was thinking since I have the opportunity why not toy with it.......... Instead of painting just the windows maybe I should paint the whole wheel to be different, I'm thinking same color as the car, a little darker, or...

    Just curious what settings everyone uses for their equalizer, if applicable. For instance are usually set like this Bass: 3 Mid: 6 Treb: 8 Bal: 5 Fade: 5 0 being turned down all the way and 10 being the highest. I adjust occasionally depending on the music I am listening to. What about you?

    I have been really trying to focus on driving more sanely to increase my mileage. at $4.50+ for premium lately it has become a necessity to conserve. My trips consist of mostly shorter trips with a few stops and 35-45 mph, I probably put on less that 50 miles per tank on the freeway at cruising...

    Ok, so I am in the position to purchase my new clutch. I can't be more excited. I haven't driven my car in over a year. So although I brought this up before, I just want to take a poll. No explanations, because I will list them for you. I want to stay as far away from changing the driving...

    Any other V6 owners running into this? Happens usually when cold and seems to be when the belt seam runs over the pulley. I know its not the belt squeaking. Are you guys replacing the bearing, lubing the bearing, or just learning to live with it? I don't even see a replacement online. Its...
