    Hi gang, Sooo...new to VW's, not new to cars. I've driven in the past mostly Saab's and BMW's, was looking for something economical and uh, that's still being made. I passed on my usual choices since I have a long commute and didn't see the point of the depreciation of a lot of cars. I found...

    So on my current project (2004 GLX with 2.8 V6), the timing belt broke. I'm in the process of pulling the heads to recondition them (new valves, lap the seats, new valve stem seals, ensure the heads aren't warped and perfectly flat, etc). My question is on timing the engine afterwards to fit...

    I recently Replaced my turbo cat and did a full timing service. I noticed the intercooler cross member is getting crusty and probably will not last Another year. People suggested an FMIC.

    I recently bought a 2018 Passat R Line. It's my first VW after years of having all kinds of other brands. I absolutely love the car. I have a question about the gas gauge and am wondering maybe its just a VW thing. I notice that after I fill my gas tank up the gas gauge needle starts moving...
