Also, trac control is stuck off. Otherwise, steering feels relatively normal. I've tried to reset the...

    Hello, I'm back after replacing both downstream oxygen sensors. I used the universal OEM BOSCH. I followed the instructions and I'm sure I did not miss anything. Before I go back and double check, I wanted to post the codes in case there is something else. Car runs great, very smooth, I'm not...

    I was wondering if there's any trick to reinstalling a used crash sensor where the position was previously throwing a code? A new sensor went in on one side and I was able to clear the code without it coming back. On the other side I put in a second hand sensor but it is throwing the same code...

    Hi guys I just bought a set of 4 sensors with an led display and plan on installing them at the back but unfortunately the labor is quite high and I am thinking on whether I should install them myself or pay someone to do it. I have two questions. 1)Which wire that connects to the tail lights is...

    There's no such write-up, info in the forum so I thought I might give a few pointers that might benefit someone down the road as long as these cars are still moving. If you have access to a shop lift, bless your heart. Otherwise you have to raise the car as much as possible so you have enough...

    I have a 2002 Passat B5.5 V6 and recently I've been having problems with the A/C - the temperature displayed is at first correct and then will start dropping to anywhere from -49 °F to 11 °F. It's now been constantly in that range for the past few days and never displays the correct value. I...

    I have a 2000 Passat GLS wagon, ATW 1.8T w/ Tip, 165k. Started getting the traditional "Varies Widely" coolant temp gage behavior last week.
