    I'm about 500 miles into my Auto-RX treatment, and have been thinking about what oil I should use for the rinse phase. Since 0W40 and 5W40 aren't available in dino, what have you all been using-- both weight and brand? Now that it's (finally) getting warmer here on the Fargo ND tundra I don't...

    Found a great resource for wheel weights. Search by make, size or weight. Might come in handy now that you Northern Hem members are approaching summer and perhaps looking for new shoes. Can someone post what the OEM wheels weights are for the B5.5. I think i've read...

    Dampened flywheels are called Dual Mass Flywheels (DMF) and got their start in full size trucks with diesel engines to reduce the noise levels. When a diesel DMF was replaced with a solid one the result would be a loud neutral gear clatter( the helical gear on the back of the input shaft would...

    Just bought what Tire Rack recommended in the OZ Ultraleggera model and wrapped them in Continental SportContact2, 17x8 et+35 with 225/45WR-17, to fit my 4Motion wagon. Overall diameter is almost identical and I'm getting a slightly larger footprint. With only minimal comfort loss (18" wheels...

    This is a pretty straightforward suspension install question, hopefully someone can help out for the common good ;) In a DIY suspension job, exactly which bolt or bolts must be re-torqued with the suspension fully compressed? Second, it is best to accomplish this with the wheel off, using the...

    So i'm excited to finally finish up my driveaxle swap... Except the supplier gave me a CV joint that was a little too short. I drove 200 yds and heard a popping noise. When I gas, the car doesn't move. I knew something was bad at that point. I quickly got out and looked at inner joint...

    Did a search but of course the damn thing won't let me enter "oil" or "v6" so I was SOL. Simple question. I will be using Mobil 1 or Castrol Syntec. Thanks.

    Does anybody know the weight and offset of the OEM W8 16" alloy wheels?
  15. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Since I will only look at a manual tranny it looks like I will be stuck with the 2.0 Turbo. A nice 30 HP bump over the 1.8T but hopefully this isn't negated by an increase in weight. Anyone know the curb weight of the B6?

    I have a 2001.5 V6 and am getting conflicting info on what type of oil to use. I just bought the car and want to complete the 35,000 mile service. The dealer said to use 15-40 Regular oil, but i remember something about sludge deposits. Should i use a semi-synthetic like 5-20? HELP!

    I have a 2002 GLS and am looking at replacing the wheels. I am looking at a 18x7.5 wheel with a 38mm offset. The bolt pattern is 5x112. This should work right? How would I know that I need hub-centric rings? Also, here is a pic of my car with stock wheels...I don't know the name of them...
