    Since several weeks I'm experiencing with somewhat serious lack of power. The engine really struggles to pick up speed and the gas consumption has gone up. Following are a list of parts and factors I have been taken care of: 1) O2 sensor is less than a year old. 2) MAF sensor is less than a...

    I was under the hood today and by sheer coincidence I saw couple of bolts are missing from a part down under the engine (see the picture). Does anyone knows what that part is and perhaps what causes the missing bolts?

    I finally got done with the lower part of my AWM engine, took all the pistons out, cleaned them, lubed them and changed all the rings. Also honed the cylinder walls and replaced the oil pump, oil stand gasket, etc. Now I’m getting ready to install the head. I’ve acquired a used one that seems to...

    My B5.5 1.8T recently lost a lot of power and I start getting horrible gas mileage (about 10 MPG). Then I remembered thatthe spark plugs are still the factory installed after nearly 7 years. So I put new plugs. The power is restored but the gas mileage is not. Still very low. Then O2 sensor...

    OK, about 4 months ago I replaced my tie rod ends, inner and outer. I replaced the boots also. I then took it to a place to have it aligned. So today I take the tire off and find this! What the heck happened here ? :Yikes: If you cannot tell from the picture, the boot is twisted. I have...

    Hello everyone! Although i've been having trouble with my car (2001.5 1.8T AWM) for some time now, it has become worse over the last few weeks and requires immediate attention.
