Once the temperature got back to the positive side yesterday, I went to start the car, a 1999 AEB Passat GLS, to take the kids to school and just got a flickering dashboard and no sounds of the engine turning over.

    I opened the hood to do a PCV check and found some sparks (little ones) on the front drivers side of the engine.. there are 2 wires near that area..one is going into the tensioner. I don't think it's normal, does anyone know what it's called? I've been searching for it in the ETKA parts list and...

    Just my opinion, but after replacing the plugs in my '00 Passat V6 and my son's '00 Jetta VR6 with Bosch Platinum +4's, both cars were mis-firing. After a week when the check engine light came on, I read a misfire on the Passat cylinder #1 with a VAG-COM, and also random mis-fires. What junk...
