    I recently serviced the PCV system on my 2000 1.8T ATW, replacing several worn and damaged components and cleaning the pipe that wraps around the engine. I also replaced the valve cover gasket (as it was leaking) and for good measure replaced all check valves and vacuum lines. Drove the car...

    I know that the PVC replacement has been touched on a lot here. Thats not my issue! My issue that has risen is after I replaced the valve cover gaskets and put on a new PVC breather hose because my 2003 V6 Passat (4 Motion) was leaking oil. I will be honest I did not do the job myself due to...

I know people have posted about this...

I think a previous owner installed aftermarket CV axles since the car starts vibrating when it hits...

    I love my car, this is my first VW I'm never going back! :D Anyways, car has 86,000 mi, kept up on synthetic oil changes.

    Hey, I'm in the process of changing my valve cover gaskets on my 01 V6 Passat Wagon with an ATQ engine, I went through and was able to replace the passenger side fairly easy by just removing the airbox, etc for clearance but I'm having some trouble with the driver side. I have removed all the...

I had a P0420 catal efficiency error, I had him clear the code for me and I haven't had the light come on since. Recently...
