      Not so funny after all. When it's not the gas cap, in can be the evaporator purge valve ("vapor canister purge solenoid"??). $230 for R&R at dealership rates. Got stuck with the dealership so...

      This is exactly what we did. Sat in the parking lot with older kid watching a movie waiting on mom and little brother. Dead. I think this is the battery killer, and seems to be lots of similar...

      Funny, I got a 456 code over the weekend. The guy at the parts store (I know, I know) said it's gas cap 90% of the time and if it's not that then commonly the low pressure vacuum hose (??) has a...

      Haven't tried them but I did consider them when I last did my brakes. Ended up going with something else. If you do go with PowerStop, you may want to compare prices at Rock Auto though. They are...

      I had a gas cap code come up awhile back. My spouse didn't tighten down the cap when she last filled it up. Happy about that one.

      Last week I got a P0562 code, which everyone seems to assume is...

      I wonder if Yellow Stuff or Extra Duty Orange Stuff would be a better match for our vans given the weight of the vehicle and heat issues (causing the warping). Greenstuff seems more for smaller,...

      Unless I missed something (quite possible), I don't think it's an age thing as much as a trim-line. The deluxe console is on the SEL and SEL Premium lines. The smaller one that doesn't slide back...

      I don't think Chrysler added HD (blu-ray, HDMI connections, etc.) until the 2013 MY, so never offered on the VW line of vans.

      A CVT is an automatic, but not all automatics are CVTs. Our vans do not have continuous variable transmissions. We have 6-speed transmissions.

      It's due at 102k miles with the timing belt service according to the wiki-Bentley, so if you're at 68k miles you've got away to go still. NGK platinum plugs apparently are OEM.

      You can read more...

      Not that I am aware of. Although I do wish I had the transmission 'memory' reset using starscan. I've heard/read that can be a huge improvement, especially with multiple drivers using same vehicle....

      I went with the Yokohama YK580 when it was time to replace them, but that tire model is only available at Discount Tire and (DiscountTireDirect.com). They are on-par with the Michelin Energy,...

      And back at you, redzone. I really look at it as an interesting conversation, and a learning opportunity (for me). I'm not a Mopar guy, so this is largely new territory for me.

      I have a...

      The 4.0L is really also a carryover from the early 90s. Stroked out 3.5L motor, you might say. Same way the 3.8L was a stroked out 3.3L from 1990. The 4.0L was introduced around 2007, so quite a...

      I can't answer the question, but I thought the move to HDMI inputs was part of a larger move from SD/DVD to HD/blu-ray and larger high-def screens. So I'm not sure how HDMI could be retrofitted to...

      Wow. I know this isn't related to the sliding door issue, but I googled that part number and it looks like they replaced the entire HVAC control cluster. Not just the knob with the integrated...

      Sliding Door Wiring Harness?

      I paid an independent shop about $140 to do a pan-drop and refill. It was over an hour labor. A few VW dealerships near me quoted around $200, maybe a hair north of that even. But all the VW...
