    So just got my exhaust patched back up for the time being before I go ahead and redo the whole system. Quite as a cat now but now a new problem has surfaced.

    B5.5 ignition intermittently cuts out Update: Fixed! Problems come in threes. 1) The water leak at the passenger door was due to glass fragments in the bottom of the door. The water didn't get to anything important (thank goodness that I have a manual transmission). 2) The check valve in...

    03 passat, 1.8T, auto...no mods Over the last few weeks my car has started to act a little weird when driving in the 30-40 mph range.

    My 2001 with 57k on it, APR 91 octane chipped, occasionally "stumbles" when accelerating at a normal pace. This is most noticeable in 2nd gear, and happens right after you feel the acceleration start to pick up, about 2500 RPM's. It almost feels like the throttle is dropping for a second-- it...
