    I checked my PCV system today and the side leading back to the crankcase does not have a lot of vacuum. It has some but it would barley stick to the end of my finger. It that normal? Or do I need to replace the suction/vacuum booster pump.

    Car: '03 GLS variant with manual HVAC controls, 45,000 miles. Maybe I just never noticed it before. It was a bit chilly this morning and put a tad of heat on with the fan. When it warmed up, I shut the ventilation fan off and noticed a "click" from the lower left dash area. I tried it...

    My Passat sat unused for a while, and it developed a smell. I've cleaned the interiors, and I think that the smell may be coming from the ventilation. Without disassembling anything major, is there something I can do to fix/check this problem fairly easily? Thanks

    The forward ventilation ducts are rather noisy for the amount of air that they put out. Any fan speed higher than "1" is very audible at most road speeds. By comparison, my girlfriend's Honda Accord can be used on the "2" fan setting which puts out a good breeze without being as noisy as the...

    I am hoping some of the folks who are intimately familiar with the 1.8T engine can provide guidance on how check the PCV system thoroughly. I know about external visual checks and the "rattle test" of the valve itself, but what else can we do to make sure the PCV system is functioning properly...
