    Hello all! Long time no post.. Recently my 2000 1.8T Passat has been leaking coolant so fast I can see the reservoir tank level get lower right in front of me. Somewhere on the passenger's side is where the leak is coming from. I know I don't have a blown head gasket because although my coolant...

    Vehicle: 2010 Passat Komfort, I assume 2.0L. Engine cover says TSI, which I don't know what that means. 54k miles, last service by dealer was at 40k miles. I changed the oil and filter myself at 52k miles (a couple months ago). Driving home after a 30-mile trip today my beloved 2010 Passat died...

    So the CCT in my ATQ V6 has been dying. I understand how bad it is to let it click and not fix it right away. I understand that even fixing the CCT may not be enough and that the head may be damaged. Lack of time and money has prevented me fixing this right away (my wife's dog was hit by a car...

    I had problems with this a few months ago, but I somehow got it to quit. Going to swap sensors again since I'm not sure if the tech changed to the one from the new engine or my old one that worked. Plenty of oil pressure, so it's either a sensor or connection issue. Ideas?

    I have this code that keeps coming up on my car. It is P2181. I posted about it a while back when I replaced my coolant sensor. As it says in that thread changing the temp sensor seemed to work for a while but now the code is back. I bought a device called an ELM327 bluetooth adapter on eBay...

    '04 Passat Waggie, lights went out behind climate control dials. All the other dash lights are fine. I figure if the light behind one dial died, it'd be a bad bulb, but all three dials at once? :confused: Or am I just smoking crack and there is only one bulb for all three dials? Help me out...
