    Before you read: My system was empty before I started, I have a vacuum pump and gauges and access to the other ac tools I might have needed. Also have the two volume Bentley, so I have a lot of valuable resources at my fingertips. I have a 99 AEB 1.8T auto FWD. I bought the car with a missing...

    2009 Passat TSI engine, it has a small leak at the front (timing side) of the engine. Are there "typical" oil leak spots on the TSI? I cleaned everything and I will check again in a couple of days, but I thought I'd ask here, too. There is also an oil leak (smaller than the one in front) at the...

    New owner of a 2003 Passat Turbo 1.8 we bought it as a first car for our youngest. Wish I'd known more about what to look for turns out the recommended 105,000 mile timing belt service wasn't completed before we bought it. I sure like the car & think it will be worth it. Otherwise a tough lesson.

    I just bought my 2nd Passat (wtf was I thinking?:crazy:) and it has some issues. I've read all the stuff about water getting under the carpet and messing up the CCM and/or wiring which I believe is the source of my problems (it's damp under there). I took a look at the wiring closely however...

    I have an airbag light on. Would like to scan it myself to see what it is, however, I do not have a VAG-COMM. It is scheduled to go into a repair shop tomorrow to be diagnosed. They told me it could be up to a $900 repair depending on what is wrong. Does that sound reasonable? Does anyone know...

    I have a 98 passat with the 1.8t and was wandering what other people got for mileage. I do mostly highway driving and only get about 26 MPG. I thought these cars got better mileage than that.

    I recently took my 2005 GLS with 107,000 miles on it on a 2400 mile round trip from northern Illinois to Orlando FL. It performed wonderfully! 31.5 mpg. avg. speed 71 - 76 mph, depending on state and locale. AC was running 99% of the time. ZERO oil consumption! I bought the car in May 2010 with...

    I ordered the APR tune from ECS last week and know their offices have been closed for the holidays, so I can fully understand a delay. Anyway, I called ECS today to find out when I would receive the UPS overnight shipping document in order to ship my ECU. The guy I spoke to today basicly...

    Just wondering; got that from the one dealer in my area I've seen do good work. Was told if rear alignment is needed would be more $$ to set. Didn't know rear was adjustable. Heck, a 4 wheel alignment on my Mercedes (with 2 eccentrics/side for caster and camber plus tie rods for toe) is $90...
