    I have been attempting to get this car on the road without the mil light. The codes 17887-P1479/16804-P0420/17545-P1137 seems to have been appearing most commonly as well as I was still having heat issues. I had flushed the heater core a couple of times as well as a radiator flush and bled...

Symptoms before the code was thrown: 1) Rotten egg smell once from the tail pipe as the car ran like poo on a cold start up, just happened a week before the code 2) SAIP does not seem to work all the time on cold...

    Let us solve this problem once and for all. It cannot be that complicated. I need to get this CEL light off to pass emissions. Car runs great except it feels like the throttle is "floaty" sometimes.

    The stock double DIN HU in my 02 Passat has always had an annoying patter or tapping sound on the high AM band ever since I bought the car used. It's so loud I can barely hear one of my favorite AM stations up around 1500Hz. So today I was sitting there parked after a short drive, engine off...

    Guys, I've got some old wheels from my 69 mustang that I was planning on selling for whatever I can get, but I can't figure out their origins.
