    Our son drove in from the Phoenix area for Thanksgiving, in the old '98 wagon which had a dripping water pump. He had an Air Force buddy with him, so I didn't feel right pushing too much to start on the car. Then another Air Force guy from their basic training days shows up and stayed over...

    "Winter is coming..." They're very low miles on the tires, tread looks great and i'll go snap some pics. $125 for all 4 Rims are steelies w hubcabs. Not sure how i'd ship these so let's try to do local before we cross that bridge. Obviously buyer would need to pay shipping/packing costs.

    My 1999 Passat 2.8L takes 15-20 cranks to get started every morning. After it does start, it runs rough for a few minutes then it's fine. Once it is started and turned back off, it will start up fine the rest of the day until the morning. However, if it is really cold it won't last overnight, it...

    This is an extension to the closed thread HERE. Well just wanted to give an update to the thread which basically discussed the implications of filling up my '99 Passat with regular gas (87) versus premium gas (91-94) which it normally runs on. After reading through the thread I figured it was...

    So i've recently put my '99 Passat on the road and i've only stopped for gas 3 times. After my last gas stop, i realized that i've been putting in regular unleaded gas, when i was explicitly informed at the time of purchase that she must only run on premium gas. My first fill, i ran the car...

    The procedures for chainging the oil on the DSG states it takes 5.5l when doing an oil change. From the workshop I was informed it tool 7 or 7.5 (can't rememeber which) - but I'm thinking they might have it confused with a "dry" transmission ?.... any ideas?

    I have a 2006 2.0T - had it since brand new. Overall, car has been fine, however not without it's issues. One thing that has always been a problem is the length of time it takes this car to warm up. I live in a cold climate and in the winter it takes at least 5 - 10 minutes to get good...

    I have a 2001 1.8 passat with an automatic transmission. When I put the car in reverse, it takes a few seconds for it to engage. I do not have any problems with all the other gears. Anyone else familiar with this problem?

    Last week my 2004 Passat 1.8 threw the P2181 code, coolant system malfunction. A few months ago, when I was having some recalls done, they said I would probably need to replace my Coolant Temp. Sensor. After the code appeared, the car ran great as usual, no overheating. Everything appeared...

    I looking for suggestions/trouble shooting for the above. I have a 2002 (AWM). Climate control is manual. I had the A/C recharged last fall and the Tech ask me if it always takes so long for the A/C to kick in. Once the a/c does come on I have plenty of cool air. Can anyone help? Thanks
