      Only fresh not recirc says to me it is from the engine bay. Perhaps leaking washer fluid into the cowl area?

      Have you poked around under the hood after a short drive to see if the smell can be...

      Should go to the dealership. Many give them away freely for child seats.
      Some people were getting them to kill the buckle-up chime. Perhaps why the back is different than the front.

      I made the best of a company trip to Colorado and had my Tiguan chipped at Bluewater Performance. Only way to get my car done since Unitronic didn't support the automatic VWs at the time.

      Edit: 07 Q7 4.2FSI

      Why is engine removal required for an upper oil pan re-seal? Are there inaccessible bolts, other equipment going through it? I don't have the Bentley manual yet, but this leak...

      2012 F150 with the 3.5ecoboost with cargo topper and utility rack on top of that.
      We consistantly get 16mpg mixed driving. Down to 14-15 if mostly in town, 16-17 on the interstate at 75-80mph.
    7. OEM roof rack and aftermarket basket

      I have a lightly used roof rack, and cargo basket pulled from my Tiguan when traded. No pics yet, weather is icky, if I get out perhaps I'll clean it up and post a couple. The roof rack came to me...

      Please tell me the brand of product you used. I have tried using the store bought stuff, both Sacrete, and Quickrete. Both failed in my attempts. I thought I had followed the package directions,...

      Check for a brake proportioning valve. They are designed to limit the flow of brake fluid to the rear under heavy braking when the suspension is unloaded so you don't just lock up the rear tires. If...

      I personally have chose to involve my kids in the shooting sports. I don't go as much as I/we'd like anymore, but it in no way stops us from trying to get to the range a couple times a year. I have...

      Try looking into mechanical issues as well. Check for vacuum leaks, specifically related to the fuel pressure regulator. Also check fuel pressure at the rail with and without the vacuum hose hooked...

      I don't have a bolt on hand to verify, but I highly doubt those are aluminum bolts. You cannot get grade 8.8 out of aluminum, way too soft. They do have some sort of anodizing/plating on them to...

      I love this place.
      Too bad you're not able to head East for a bit. This time of year it is beautiful. If you ever get a chance to tour the badlands in spring, take the trip.

      Thanks guys.

      Cold start is just fine. Don't need a rental, we don't use it often enough, and it is still running just fine. I get what you are saying about a momentary jumper, good idea if I can't...
