    Guys... Friday the 13th bit me... I cracked my oil pan pretty bad tonight. Not sure if its salvageable or not. There's about a 3 inch half-circle crack all the way through. I have some local West MI VW guys checking on a replacement piece for me, but wanted to get your thoughts as well...

    I chnaged the fuel filter tonight (installed in the correct direction). I pulled the fuse #28, ran the car until it ran out of gas, installed the new filter, put the fuse back and the car won't start. Checked the filter and it was fuel of gas. What could be wrong ?

    Overall car was very nice. :driving: some fading in the leather, but that's to be expected. A few things that we noticed while looking it over that raised a few eyebrows: 1) There was moisture in both the driver's rear taillight (had about an inch of standing water) and the passenger side...

    The V6 overheated today going 10mph on a busy freeway (uphill) by 100degrees with the air conditioning on (wifey was driving). All of a sudden a coolant smell came into the cabin and 2 minutes later the dreaded "STOP" popped up on the instrument cluster. She immediately pulled over, stopped the...

    Hi all, I tried to search the forums but didn't find a similar problem..I have an 03 passat 1.8t with 67,000 original miles. It has been driving great since I got it a couple weeks back. Today I changed the oil (Mobil 1 0w-40 meets the vw 502 spec.) I don't drive it hard and I've been trying to...

    So maybe I'm dumb, but I never noticed this in the 1+ year I've had my B6. When it rains, I almost never use the wipers fully 'on'. Always on intermittent mostly 'cuz I Aquapel my wind screen. No need for fully on wipers. So tonight I pull out of my office parking garage into a deluge. I...

    Went out for a drive, just for fun. (In a pair of gym shorts, and only shorts...) Slightly rainy out tonight, and while sitting at a red light, the '95 Blazer behind me didn't stop soon enough. No pictures of his vehicle, too dark, but I have a few of mine. No injuries, but my baby isn't...

    Well I was just pulling on 95 when I noticed the car had a rough feel. I pulled over and the car was idling real rough. After checking to make sure things like oil were persent I was able to get it home but the car had very little power and I had to use down hill on the back roads to make it...

    I was going to order a new visor figuring that the light didn't work due to what must be a bad switch inside the mirror door on my B5.5. But first I looked up visor removal in my Bentley and took it out to find that one wire running from the visor to the connector was broken, presumably from...

    We ended up going with the W8 Passat and picked it up tonight. I was expected a little more power from the W8 but guess I was just too used to my old car. Probably because it has an auto. It has plenty ummphh and rides smooth and nice though. Honestly I felt that the 323 he had seemed...

    Tonight, since it was relatively warm here in the NE, i was parked outside sitting the car with the windows down. Since the car was off i had no auto windows so i held the button down, as it went down it was fine. Then as soon as it got to the bottom, IT WENT BACK UP! I was holding the button...
