    I am about to do the 1st ever oil change using an oil extractor through the dipstick hole. Then I thought, why can't the oil be added through the dipstick hole? By the same token, can the oil be extracted through the fill hole?

    Hi guys, water is entering my vehicle dripping under the rear door metal panel and entering the floor/carpet. What is the way to remove the metal part of the door panel, after the leather+handle been removed? I see the video here, but the 2:50-3:00 minute is missing something - in my case the...

    I have a B5.5 and somewhere between June- July of last year water seemed to get under the right front passenger seat. I discovered this until August. It was massive. I will come back and write about it with pictures. The good news it is doable, with some patience, time and a few tools...

    My 2004 wagon idles rough and has a hesitant start up that clears around 30 mph or so. From that point on, it runs just fine. Have replaced the coils, fuel pump, and fuel filter twice. The previous owner did use regular gas (California) about half the time. If I use the manual mode of the...

    Its been around for a bit but now more than ever, for the past two weeks i have been smelling a very engining smell through the vents, unless i put it on recirculate and AC...

    I have a B5.5 with Monsoon and at low volume there is a high frequency squeal noise heard through all of the speakers. Any suggestions on what to do to get it to stop? Thanks, Matt

    When I brought my Passat for its last oil change, at about 3,500 miles, they told me that it was almost out of oil -- nothing showed on the dipstick. I then checked after 500 miles -- all good. But after 1,500 miles (one month -- we did an inordinate amount of driving this month, usually it's...

    I have a 2003 4Motion V6 with climatronic. This has been an ongoing issue for me and also the previous owner. I bought the car last year and got a great deal so I didn't worry too much about the no heat issue because I thought I could fix it. I'm currently getting nothing but cold air from...

    Ok. So the ac seemed to be working ok. Then, I went through a HUGE puddle several weeks ago. After that, the ac quit working. The a/c clutch does not seem to engage, the a/c fan works, the light comes on, and the air blows hot when I move the dial to hot. The relay clicks on the panel when the...
