    About 6 weeks ago my windshield washer tank light blipped on, refill me now. Usually this doesn't happen too often 2 or 3 times a year so I didn't think about it. I filled it up and went on my way. About 1 week later it went on again. So I filled it to the brim with water and did a static...

    ok here's my story (long story short VW f***ed me big time): so I brought my Passat in to get new brakes put in at the local VW dealership. They called me and told me that my catalytic converter was leaking and would likely cause problems and need to be replaced. My 8 year 80K warranty on the...

    ....Pictures. I am looking at getting a boost gauge and an oil pressure gauge, but I have been having some problems finding gauge pods for them. I was looking at doing dual A-pillar pods but was told that might not be a good idea with the Air Bags on the pillar. I really cant see putting them...

    I am fed up with this ignition coil problem. I'd like to watch someone who knows what they're doing perform the task so I can learn how to do it.

    It truly is one problem right after another when owning two B5's. Anyone know if replacing the ignition is a DIY possible job?

    I have installed an Omori boost gauge and would like some of you to give me your opinions on the readings I'm getting-- specifically, the vacuum reading at idle, which seems to be lower then what I've been hearing from others. I will be asking the dealership this same question, but figured I'd...

    Hey I know this is probably a very strange request but I am looking to see if anyone has just the switchblade part of their key they would like to donate for a little experiment. Not the controller but just the key side. You can cut the key in half if you have any security concerns at all...

    Dear exhaust "experts", My B5.5 is a 2003 sedan with the 1.8T. Engine mods to date include a K&N drop in filter, TT DV, Wett 1.0 bar chip and an N75J valve. I think the next step in my search for more torque and horse power should be a higher flowing exhaust. Having read a lot of threads on...

    I have read many threads that touch on this topic, but none that fully answer all of my questions. I apologize if my topic rehashes prior posts; I have tried a search for this information. Additionally, I do not want to hijack someone else’s thread. I am trying to to locate a quality after...
