    So here is the problem. I cannot figure out why I have no interior lights, I have all dash lights, I even have footwell lights. I have no lights in trunk, dome lights, map lights, I have the red led lights but nothing to light up my car when I get in it. I cant figure out the fuse box. But i...

    Hi all ! I keep my car in the garage at night so when I leave for work in the AM, the interior is not super-heated. I turn on the A/C but it blows basically "room temp" air for the first couple miles. Then, it starts blowing cold (38 degrees) air and works as normal for the rest of my...

    Hi, I recently bought a cheap 1999 Passat 1.8 with the 4-speed auto transmission (01m i think?). I've since noticed a rather strange issue with the transmission. The first time the car upshifts into 3rd gear, it usually seems to flare slightly when shifting (RPMs jump up by 50 - 150 on the...

    This has happened to me before on various occasions. Basically whenever I'm putting the car on park the emergency break lock turns out without me even touching it and I hear my rear brakes locking. Anyone have any idea as to why this is occurring? I drive the car normally, the car is parked on a...

    Hey guys, I have had this noise for a while, but I thought I might as well just ask you guys about it since you can hear it in the video i just made yesterday. I did install a black forest industries snub mount, that I thought toned it down a little. Could the transmission mounts be really worn...

    Today i noticed that my turbo was making a high pitch spooling noise which ive never heard before. Its pretty loud and i can hear it from inside the car. It seems to boost fine and i am able to hear the diverter valve when i let off the gas from boosting. It almost sounds like there is no limit...

    My third brake light works in a weird fashion. Only the two outside parts light up and then dim out then bright back up then dim out again, then don't come on at all. Anyone come across this? Need a new third brake light? Separate bulbs?

    I had my brakes replaced on my 1999 1.8T (165,000 miles) last April. After I had a front end rattling noise, wub-wub-noise and also what I can describe as a kind of 'pop' or creak whan I'm almost at a stop. The front end rattling turned out to be a ball joint which solved that. The wub-wub was...

    So Like I said my '06 Passat is now making a wierd squeal when going in reverse or when just starting to go forward, but this only happens when the AC is on. And only lasts for a second I am assuming this is a belt issue. What belt could it be? Also my wife told me the car started "put...

    My 2004 V6 (128,000 miles) has developed a very small coolant leak that comes and goes. I had the car up on stands over the weekend and I can barely see it traveling from behind the alternator but cannot find the source. It will leak about a pint every 3-4 days. I replaced the timing belt...

    I'm looking for advice on how my transmission should be shifting. 2003 w8 wagon, 130k and I have a code 741 for the torque converter solenoid and it seems like it's locking oddly. On the highway 65mph 2.25k rpm, sometimes the rpm will stay up after lifting off the throttle. other times the rpm...
