    Last week the temperature got down to 15 below with 22 below windchill. I tried to start my vehicle in the morning and it would not start. It would turn over, but not start. I tried a few more times that day to no avail. It became weaker by the third time. A buddy stopped by and gave me a jump...

    For what its worth, I know there is always chatter about the VW lock carrier tool 3411 (the lollipop) and if you should use it, should buy it, should make your own, should steal someone's or just get a new car. Now having 3 Passats I figured I would invest and cruised the eBay files and found...

    So I'm an auto student and now starting in a dealership. I have both a student discount with Snap On and Matco tools. Both with and without my student discount I found that Matco and Snap On are priced almost the same within a few bucks. My question is Since they are almost priced exactly the...

    2003 Passat 1.8T AWM Appears only on cold first start of the day. You hear what sounds like around 25 bits of something small and hard floating around in a tube from inside the car. The heater and blower are off, so unrelated to the sound. The sound changes speed of the floating particles with...

    So I got a coolant leak that is almost certainly coming from the water pump (or O-ring). So essentially, I am preparing to do a TB job without actually replacing the TB since I did that about 50K miles ago (Aug 2012). Since I'm not replacing the TB, it follows that I won't have the specialty...

    Sickening CLUNK! When I juiced it turning left into the school entrance ahead of oncoming traffic this morning. Engine revs freely now. No power to wheels whatsoever. It's pretty cold this morning. I think I snapped an axle. Could it be something else? Upside - I got to use my warning triangle...

    These are 4mm OD with a 1mm wall thickness. I looked at mcmaster.com for a replacement and found something that looks to be better than the original. Its made of clear "FEP" material that's durable, flexible and is rated to 400° F. Not bad at $1.25 per foot. I picked some up today...

    As you all know, Southern Worthersee was this weekend and while I took a grand total of 3 pictures myself, I know that everyone who was there will be posting a bunch of photos so it kind of evens out. One of the pictures I took was this one, of my car, and I just thought I'd post it so people...

    I just bought all 3 front lower grill sections for my 02 Passat from our friends at ECS Tuning. The two outer sections that go over the fogs snapped in and fit perfectly, but I can't get the center section to snap in. I can get it into what appears to be the correct position, but it just won't...

    It's not really that bad, so sorry to everyone expecting to see a mangled lump. The details: Someone backed into the car (I wasn't in it), left a note. I called the police to get accident report and insurance is taking care of it. The estimate I got was $1023. I think this is...
