    I was lookin at my coolant reservoir today and i saw no coolant in it. I looked around and there were two hoses on the front, one to the engine and one to the radiator. Then on the bottom there was a hole that looked like a drain plug but I'm not sure what it is.i tried searching the forum and...

    I have a problem that I've been chasing for a while. Sometimes the idle fluctuates when I come to a stop, or dips down to about 500 RPM. I have no codes, and I have cleaned the MAF and cleaned my throttle body. It did not improve anything, it might have even gotten a little worse after...

    Can you test whether your MAF is faulty if you dirve with it unplugged? Will this increase engine performace, smoothness and acceleration if unplugged, if faulty of coarse?

    I unhooked my battery to get the cable out of the way to install my strut bar today and didn't stop to think that I should have hooked it up to an alternate battery supply. When I turned on my car, my head unit was completely reset so I figure there must be something else that I probably need...

    So I removed the relay (173) for the DRL's and now my drivers side blinker arrow in the gauge cluster won't turn off. Also when I put the blinker on to turn left the gauge cluster lights blink instead of the blinker. It never had any issues before I removed the relay. Any...

    I removed the slide cover to expose my battery, and on the positive terminal there are two wires screwed to it. One wire has a "splice" off of it that has two wires (brown and white) coming off of it and into a connector. I then noticed that underneath what looks like my brake fluid resovior...

    I read in the threads that you could unplug the MAF and still drive. I tried this to see if that would solve my misfiring issue. AutoZone computer said Multiple misfires-cylinders 1-2-3. I took out the MAF and drove the car but it still acts like its cutting out whenever I dip into the throttle...

    So I know that there are many GTI guys running w/ their MAF's unplugged. What happens when you do this and how can it run correct? I think (but am not sure) that some of the newer drive by cable 1.8t's have an extra O2 sensor that is wideband, does the ecu rely on this heavily? I'm just...
  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok OK OK I had my battery unplugged overnight and when it was put back on, naturally the computer had reset itself. However now when i do a cold start, it sounds like it wants to stall but then after about 30 seconds it returns to normal idle. Is this something with the fuel injection now...
