    I have finally found the cause of my oil seep originating at the oil filter assy. The engine had the dreaded "oil sludge" issue when I purchased it a few weeks ago, low oil pressure and tons of noise from the top of the engine. I dropped the pan and cleaned the pan and pick up.

    Hi all, my first post here. I saw a 2002 Passat GLS for sale and I'm considering buying it. I would love to hear your opinions on it since it is the first car I'll own so I don't have much experience in buying used cars. I love Passats by the way. It is a 1.8 Turbo, stick shift and has 130K...

    Hi all, I have an oil pressure problem in my 1.8T passat, and have read loads about sludge, etc. My car is currently in a garage where the mechanic says that it will cost about £1800 to fix the car so that it is worth about £1800 (replacement engine + labour) - the numbers don't look good, eh...
