    Dear all, I have change from 195/65 15 to 205/55 16. The steering wheel is shaking left and right and the ride was bumpy. After 500 miles, I had the tires balanced again. It rides smooth. However, the steering wheel is still shaking left and right. I don't think I need alignment yet, because...

    Hey all, here's the story: I recently lowered my car on FK springs on stock shocks. I also put on new wheels and spacers. Once this was all done, my steering wheel began to shake like crazy. I thought it needed an alignment, but it turns out that the front spacers were no good. I replaced them...

    Car: 98 B5 Passat 1.8t, 82k miles, 5spd, completely stock. For the most part, car rides and drives fine from 0 to 65mph.

    I have a 2003 b5.5 and my front suspension must be out of tune. I can feel every single road bump and road anomaly. This is a HUGE difference as compared to when I bought the car - then I could'nt feel any road bump as if I was sitting in a sofa in my living room. The problem started three...

    Started to notice this about 2 months ago. I have an MBC, N75 race valve, and a Turbo X.S DV. When at full throttle in 3rd 4th or 5th (probably because all others are too quick to notice) the boost gauge will flutter at whatever boost and jump around about 1 psi or so total up and down, up and...

    My car shakes slightly at idle (about 800rpm). I m thinking part of it should be normal (V6), and part of it can be improved by changing spark plugs and plug wires. does Autozone sell oem sparks/wires? what about 'better' wires for the v6?

    So here's the problem from yesterday, I started up my B5 and the engine was really shaky. I looked at the idle meter and boost gage, it "seems" stable to me. I gave it a few step on the car to see if it was some flushing problem, well it's not. A few of my buds said it's coil, so my question...

    when i am driving my car, especially at low speeds, both the steering wheel feels shaky and the whole car seems to be wobbly. almost feels like a bent rim, but when i rotated the tires (front to back) it didn't go away. so that basically eliminates anything with rims/tires. right? the wobbling...

    Hi, I've been experiencing shaking in my Passat all the time. It's there at all times. I took it to a couple of mechanics and they couldn't figure out what's wrong with it using software diagnosis. I am not an expert mechanic, so I do not know where to start.

    My car shakes considerably when applying brakes at 60+ mph. Does this mean I have to replace the front brake pads? I just replaced the rear this summer (June/July) @ Midas, which I will never ever do again. Kareem

Got home and pulled into the driveway put the car in park and noticed the temp instantly moved up to warm :0 It did this for the next few days until it just...
