  1. Jetta/GLI VI
    Searched and searched but I couldn't find a solution of how to to change the manual trans axle fluid on a 2012 VW 2.0 with the five speed. Looking under the car there is no where evident to drain the fluid and I have read to fill though the reverse speed sensor. But honestly it's a PTA to find...
  2. Golf/GTI VII
    So just 3 weeks ago I installed a stage 3+ fx350 clutch on my stage 2 mk7 gti. Shortly after I noticed a vacuum leak that ended up being due to the rear main seal failing. I opened it back up replaced the rms and cleaned the very little bit of oil left on my clutch with brake cleaner. I was told...

  4. Tiguan (MQB)
    I did my homework and searched the forum before posting. About my 2019 Tiguan I’m planning to change diff and haldex fluids. My questions: 1- my understanding is that the front diff share the same oil with the transmission. Is that correct? 2- when people say “ I replaced the front diff oil on...

  6. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I have a 2002 gti 12v vr6 (AFP) this morning I went to turn on my car it cranked, started, then died in about 5 seconds. After I tried starting it again it would crank but not even try to start and I was greeted with the STOP warning and an "oil pressure stop engine" message. My oil level is...
  7. Golf VII R
    So I took my mk7 R on the German autobahn today and did some high speed driving. Afterwards I noticed some oil residue on the inside of the rear left wheel. I took the wheel of and noticed that the rear left side of the sub frame was covered in oil. I put the wheel back on and took it to a local...
  8. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    My dad just bought a 2012 Passat, 2.5L, 60k miles, with documented regular oil changes. We didnt notice anything on the dipstick before he bought the car.

    Hello all! I'm looking to install an oil pressure gauge and oil temperature gauge in my 2005 Golf Mk.IV with Pumpe Düse (BEW) engine, but not really sure where to put the sensors. Has anyone here done these mods? Can you post pics of where/how you connected the sensors? Thanks!
  11. 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...
  12. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Our Jetta was triggering the oil warning (icon on dash and chime/beep) intermittently. It was not all the time and couldn't be tied to engine speed or driving (not specific to going through turns, on an incline/decline, etc.). Whenever the warning went off and I would stop and check, the oil...
  13. Eos
    Hey y'all. Could someone please tell me where the oil level should read on the dipstick of my 13 Eos? I noticed that theres a crosshatch area and thought it should read somewhere within that area. When I checked it after the dealership did my oil change it was well above the crosshatch. They...
