  2. Golf VII R
    Hey guys I've got a diagnostics problem I'm scratching my head on. Few weeks ago I started noticing some hiccups during normal driving. I've had issues in the past with my Audi just needing new sparkplugs and coils, considering the golf was at 68k on factory equipment, that a service was due...

    Hi, Just wondering what you think about this I bought a 2015 1.2 VW Polo a year ago ran all fine until yesterday. Driving along Big Bang and had to get towed away. Turns out some mechanical failure had caused a hole in my engine block. I always check my oil and don’t drive my car aggressively...

  6. Golf/GTI VI
    I was wondering how possible it would be to put the EA888 gen 3 motor into a mk6 gti. I am fairly mechanically inclined and have good tools and shop access, my question is if it's something I can fairly easily bolt in. My main worry is even if it does bolt right in, I am concerend about the...

    So I have a B4 with the 2.0l 8 valve engine which I plan to install a block heater in. It's a DEFA(411393) heater that is supposed to be installed in frost plug hole nr 3 (closest to the transmission on the back of the engine). But how in the world am I supposed to get the frost plug out? I...

The dude that owned the car before me said that he did the timing when he did not my bad for not checking but that’s besides the point, timing jumped and destroyed my...

    2014 Volkswagen Jetta Base S 2.0 4cyl Girlfriend was driving the Jetta as it's her car and on her way home the EPC light lit up. Using a scan tool she got the code p0343. Looked it up and found that the code cause is a continuous high signal from the Camshaft Position Sensor. Already ordered...
  12. Jetta/GLI VI
    Howdy y'all — I've been trying to pinpoint what is going on with my MK6 GLI and maybe y'all can help. The engine seems to idle rough after its been warmed up and you can hear it cycling ... almost sounds like a timing issue but I'm no mechanic. Light acceleration feels "wobbly" at low RPMs...

  15. Jetta/GLI VI
    Yo. Accidentally drove through a puddle that was deeper than I expected in a flood. When I turn the car off, the engine still sounds like it’s on, like a low hum. Normally, it does that anyway for a bit after turning it off, but it’s louder after everything got wet. Checked the dipstick and it...

  19. Passat (B7)
    Hello folks, Yesterday I began noticing a sound coming from my engine. It's the 2.5 liter engine. Whenever I accelerate, there is a noise, not really a typical whining sound of a bad belt, but not really a squealing sound either. It is more like a sound of metal rubbing together, but it doesn't...
  20. Cabriolet
    I could use any suggestions for how to diagnose this issue my car is having. It's an '89 Cabriolet with 123k miles. After startup, the oil pressure gauge indicates just below 5 bar at idle. After 15 seconds in idle and driving away it goes down to 3-4 bar until it warms up and then it maintains...
