      Lucky, when I drove my youngest to college, it was 27 hours one way and I got 23mpg in my V6 4Mo Passat wagon. Hurricane Katrina hit while we were there and the $2 gas on the way up was $4 on the way...

      For the quick way, you do need to remove the front portion of the center console. Rough directions: remove the 2 screws hidden on the side at the bottom. Remove shift knob (put in D, pull out...

      Put these HID in my son's 01.5 sedan, it's pretty good. I also have a set for my other son's 2000 V6 wagon and a spar set on my 01 4Mo wagon. I bought their LED setup for my Tiguan but have not...

      If you still have 7mm of pad left, you are not close to needing replacement. 3mm is a pretty good time to replace them as once they get thinner, they are more susceptible to cracking. You can replace...

      You need to check requested boost vs actual, which would require VCDS scan tool (or similar).

      Rear differential you can used GL4 or GL5. Center and front differential use the trans fluid. For that, stick with OEM if possible and only GL4.

      I'd be happy if I got the 1969 ZL1 Camaro listed for $3K in the local paper in 1982. I'd throw the rest into buying a house.

      No smartass, many other cars had batteries in other locations. Most cars I worked on as a mechanic in the early 80s had them on the passenger side. My Audi had it under the back seat. I don't recall...

      You can have a good engine that still burns oil from valve seals or the turbo. If the compression is good, make sure the PCV system is in good shape. Depending on where you live, if all else is good,...

      Pretty much expect a destroyed battery (if not a flying one) on most VW transverse engines since the MKIV in this test. The batter is either right behind the headlight or 2' in back of it. The B5 was...

      A compression test will tell you if the engine is worn out. You can usually rent the tool for free (with deposit) as most parts stores. After that, VCDS is what you will need to start checking for...

      There are a couple of people on the PassatWorld Forum who have swapped between the standard steering wheel and the multi-function. You might look into their threads as there is some changes that need...

      Fun to drive is not in the Tiguan dictionary (if you keep it stock), especially compared to something like a GTI. I have the same issue compared to my highly modified Passat. The Tiguan is great for...

      Did you swap in a compatible VW steering wheel?...

      Did you swap in a compatible VW steering wheel? It seems like a short through the CCM, but that should not affect the ABS. Does the problem still occur with the old wheel back in?
      I would guess you...

      I also have a car without a tune but with the exhaust changed. The suitcase resonator was removed for a glass pack on the donor car I have. I wish it was tuned as it was the same year as my car.

      The CTS should set a code but does not always set one.
      Another possible problem is the engine speed sensor, it often does not set a code until the car will not start.
      I would also look into the...

      Since you have a 1.8T, no need to worry about the intake snorkel.

      You can test the CTS with VCDS before you start the car to see the temp is sends to the ECU (it's on another circuit from the...

      About half my cars I bought have been manuals. I tried to teach my wife to drive my 91 SHO, but being vertically challenged, 2nd gear was behind the seat once she adjusted it to reach the pedals. She...
