Is anyone available to look it up for me? Does just the VIN work? I haven't been out on the forums in ages...Used to have a 2002...

    2 months ago my head gasket failed on my 05 TDI and long story short, it cost me $2000 for new EGR cooler, timing belt, pulleys, ect. Now I do not have heat. The AC blows cold, and the hoses going to the fire wall are hot, but nothing happens when I go to crank the heat. Am I in big trouble?

    Haven't posted in a while, but could use some advice on my Cam Follower situation. I've got a 2008 B6 Passat, with the BPY engine. We bought it about two years ago, with 49K miles. It's now at 81K. I've kept up with oil changes every 5K miles. My wife drives it 100 miles every day, and...

    Hey Folks, Been getting in my VW and if i go straight to drive I get a good lurch, or knock forward (I think it might be mounts, but may be wrong) and sometimes I will shift to N and let it sit for a second and then put into D and no lurch or surge forward (same result on flat or small incline...

    Hello. My car info is listed in the title, from what I understand that makes it a B.5.5. I'm not mechanical but would rather not sound ignorant. Four months ago I walked into my garage to find the floor covered in oil. The mechanic stated there was oil in the coolant. He said he would...

    A few years ago I had a small oil leak which was fixed by replacing a clogged suction pump valve. Then this year after an oil change the same leak reappeared, only a little bit worse. Now I've noticed that if the cold or just warm engine oil level is at or below the middle of the cross-hatch on...

    I've got about 1500 miles on my oil so it's a nice dark brown color and one day it was a tad low so I carefully added about a third of a quart of fresh Mobil1 to the crank case with a funnel because my engine is clean and detailed and I don't want to muck it up. A couple days later I saw a spot...
