    So, I recently bought a beautiful 2003 GLX V6 Wagon FWD. It's in pretty amazing condition and has been fantastic to me. Unfortunately it had a slow coolant leak. After some reading here I found that it was possibly the CTS and went to buy one. I didn't realize I should have bought a new CTS...

    We can start out with the fact that stock passat 1.8ts run about 9.8 0-60. And knowing how many cars travel on our highways its always hard to found room without getting beeped at. And from the're I've broke my car to under 6 seconds around 5.8. (think I could hit low 5s with good tires instead...

    The 2003 TDI has an intermittent battery drain. I have managed to track it down to the last two fuses but could not identify what circuit are these guys on. (Haynes manual or this resourceful forum). The car is a RHD saloon. The fuses are on the bottom of the very small relay panel right in the...

    I have 1998 Passat. Two days ago I stopped in a parking lot. With the engine still running, I set the brake, opened the door and got out. Leaving the door fully opened, I went back and opened the trunk. I shut the trunk and walked away from the car. As I was walking I heard a popping sound...
  12. Dyno Forum
    Probably a noob question, but why can I not see any threads in this dyno forum? All I see is the Sticky-ed Poll at the top and thats it, nothing else. Are there no other threads or am I missing something? The whole reason I came here was because I was interested to know what type of power all...

    I had an oil change done today, and the level is a little over the max mark now (1/4 inch above the upper bend on the dip stick, or a little less than 1/2 inch above the textured portion). I think the guy filled in the full 5qt. That's about 0.4qt over, right? The car drove fine on the way home...

I re-attach it, and a few miles later - BAM -...
