    I have a 2000 Passat GLS (ATW) with 167k miles. When I first try to start the vehicle it cranks but does not even attempt to turn over as if it's getting no fire or fuel. Sometimes if I wait for a minute it will start. Most of the time I'll have to wait for about an hour and then it will start...

    I saw that ECS has a plug-and-play tuner on sale for $200 for the 2.0t. Seems like a good deal at 100 bucks off - it claims gains of +25 HP and +35 torque. Dinan is pretty big in the BMW tuning world...

    I just discovered an easy fix for those hazy headlight lenses that older cars all seem to get. You can buy a kit to clear these, but I found that Scratch Doctor clears them much easier and cheaper. Please tell me if this works for you.

    Hi, I've had a Canadian market 4motion early 2001 Passat for a few years. It's been a painful car to own at times, but I've finally gotten everything sorted out (except bad abs computer) and even put a set of KW V3 coilovers on it. Everything else it stock except the aftermarket front debaged...

    So this is my First question on the forum, and I just bought this B6 wagon 2.0T last week and I want to start right away on fixing it up. The tail pipes are as you see below and was wondering what people have done in the past to clean and gleam them. The other option I am thinking is to cut...

    My wife has a 2001.5 Passat with a v6. Car has 178,000 miles on it and lately it started running just a little rough.

    Strange issue. If my car sits long enough and I try to start it, it will fail. If I try to start it, shut it off then try again, it will start normally on the second try. Is this a fuel pump issue? Car runs perfectly afterwards. Have been to busy to hook it up to my VAGCOM to check it out.

    This past weekend I wasn't able to go home due to my cat having surgery (see Stupid Pets thread for reference) but I was suppose to help my mom with her front brakes. She couldn't wait and took it to a local indy shop near her to have them do the work. I've never been a fan of her going there...
