      It got locked out early in the model run (mid-MY2006 IIRC). A dealer might be able to do it but I'm not sure.

      Another easy way to check is to look at the intake manifold (assuming the engine came from a Passat). If it's a black plastic two-piece you have a 2008+ engine and no oil pump bolt problems. If it's...

      Does it make the roaring sound when you rev it to 2500 with the car in neutral/park, or does it only make the sound when the car is actually in motion? Can you make a recording of the sound?

      I've always thought that if you own a pickup mainly for Home Depot runs, getting one that can't fit a 4x8 sheet of whatever in the bed would be a tremendous pain in the a∬. Might as well get a roof...

      If you have Climatronic (dual-zone automatic climate control) you can access the Self-Test mode, yes. You can also read all of the same things with a VAG-COM/VCDS cable and software.

      ...except for delivering an epic punking to Honda for actually greenlighting one of those things for production. Demand has sucked but he||, they're still on sale 11 years later. :screwy:

      I think there are actually two sensors. One should be on the main coolant line on the driver's side of the engine, coming in at the top of the head. Might be buried under some PCV lines or something,...

      Hope it goes to a good home! If you got the V6 Touareg, it's essentially the same engine as was in your Passat, so your car just got a bit taller. ;)

      2001 Jettas only IIRC. It was the glue used for the carpets. I had 2 2001 1.8Ts and both had the smell.

      You can glue it but it's bound to happen again. I used exterior grade Velcro so that the next time it gets pulled out I can just press it back together.

      I'll bet it's your radiator fans. If you just started hearing it, it could be because warmer weather is here, or it could be that the small fan has died and the large fan is taking up the slack.

      Welcome! Misfires caused by carbon buildup or one or more bad injectors would be my first two thoughts, along with a leak somewhere in the evap system (maybe the lines to/from the charcoal canister).
