    Last Wednesday (the 6th) I was driving home when suddenly my traction control and ABS light came on for a second. The brake light flashed while I heard three beeps. The words: STOP, SERVICE MANUAL, BRAKE FAULT appeared on the dash. I panicked but all of a sudden, there were 2 beeps and the...

    I had the automatic transmission switching issue which gave me the check engine code P0706 and required the transmission range switch replacement (I was able to repair the switch I had, without spending $200 for a new one). After 3 days of driving with the switch repaired and Tiptronics...

    Took my 2001.5 1.8T to the shop after the STOP light came on. Mechanic checked the oil pressure and it was really low. So he dropped the pan and called to ask me to come down to his shop. Car now has 110k on it. The pick up screen was clogged. More dismaying was the amount of sludge in the...

    I'm throwing vag-com code 18014 - Rough Road/Engine Torque Signal From ABS. P1606 - 35-00 - Electrical Malfunction. Took the ABS control module out had it repaired. Installed fixed module. Cleared codes. Same problem! So what now? Wheel sensors? Broken wire in the harness?

    I recently had my ABS module repaired by Modulemaster. The 01203 code started intermittantly in Oct , 14 and the warning light finally stayed on all the time in Feb, 15. I previously checked the wiring at the A pillar and on the module itself. Finally decided to pull the trigger and send the...

    Greetings! The basics first: 2003 GLX 4Motion Wagon with the V6 engine. The story: My car recently had that dreaded fuel leak associated with cold weather fuel line failure with the V6 motor. The line in question is a high pressure line that enters the injector rail on the top rear...

    Is there some reason cars are designed the way they are, instead of being easy to repair?

    I recently replaced my ABS module with one repaired by ModuleMaster. Everything runs fine, no faults on my engine or abs modules (reading with Ross-Tech and VCDS) but it used to be that when my tires would slip, the ASR light on the dash would flash and the ASR would slow my wheels down, now I...

    The wastegates often burn out, or the lever's bushing gets so worn that the valve doesn't seal. I've tried an experiment that may or may not work, but I'll report back either way. I ground off the rivet to remove the old flapper disk, then replaced them with a triple stack of 18-8 stainless...

    Hi everyone. I am afraid I won't have much to offer on here, I am just looking for help/advice on my daughter's 01 V6. On the highway her oil light came on, pulled over, called me, not much oil in the car. We put some in it to get home & she had to pull over & shut it off all the way home to let...

    I have the common abs control module issue where it claims to be failing even tho I still have abs. The light sometimes don't even turn on but for the most part the abs and the stop lights are on. I was just wondering if anyone around the los angeles area can repair these. I know of a website...

    I am the original owner of a 2003 Passat GLX V6 with about 85K miles. I am having an ongoing problem with a coolant leak that was traced to the plastic inlet pipe of the heater core, about one inch outside of the firewall. I am almost certain that there is no leak inside the firewall (no...

    My timing belt failed at 75K. Having not pulled the head yet I don't know how severe damage is, but I was coasting to a stop when it went and I'm hoping I only have valve damage and thus will just need to rebuild the head. Anyone on here done this process themselves? I know it is going to be...

A Royal Green 2000 Passat V6 4-motion with a tan interior. This car was CLEAN, VW maintained, and traded...

    I just had my abs mocule repaired. But my ASR light will not go out no matter what I do. Could my ASR part of the module still be broken or do I need to have a mechanic scan my abs and just clear the codes that could be stored in it? In my owners manual it says the light comes on when it is...

    To recap: So I got some time today to work on the Variant. I did another core flush, and after finishing with some time to spare, I decided to look into the problem with my mirror. After breaking it down and investigating how it moves, it became painfully obvious what the problem was, and as...

    I was cleaning the wheels this weekend and found a crack on the base of one of the spokes. :cry: One shop I took it to said it can't be repaired in that location, but I've heard of people cutting out the wheel faces and welding them to different barrels. Take a look: Anybody need 17"...
