    Valve Cover Replacement for 2014 VW Passat TDI (CKRA Engine).

    Update on the shipment from that I received several days ago. Sorry been really busy, and realized I haven't been on here to chime in. Not included in the injector install kit were the small return line O-rings. Total for my purchase was $256. I suppose I'll source the small...

    2015 SEL dash shuts down but engine stays running.

    It's that time of year, so it seems. Check the battery terminals and connections for corrosion. Likely it's an internal problem with one of the cells, and it can't support the load demand put on it. I'll bet it'll be fine again with a new battery.

    Another heater core?

    I may if I keep it long enough for the extended warranties and Dieselgate extensions expire. For now it's nice having a car that's about to roll 100k miles that drives great, looks great, and is fun to drive. And rarely sees a fuel pump compared to my other vehicles.

    P026A code and intercooler buildup

    My 2013 CKRA is running great at 97k...ticking time bomb! Just had the heater core and AdBlue heater replaced under warranty. Drive more, worry less for now I guess. Thankfully I do have another means of transportation.

    Another heater core?

    My heater core was plugged again. Replaced this week by my local VW service department, Leith VW of Cary NC. It was replaced under the VW extended warranty, along with my AdBlue Heater, which was throwing a CEL. Thankfully it too was under the VWOA extended warranty.

    2015 Passat Fuel Door Issues.

    I replaced my fuel door lock solenoid a couple years ago. Long enough that I forgot most of the details, but it wasn't that big of a deal.

    New to me ‘14 Passat TDI SEL

    Looks like a previous owner/enthusiast changed the OEM headlight switch to the 'Euro-Switch'. I did the same thing to my '13 Passat SEL, yet I was not interested in adding the rear red 'fog light' to mine so the 2nd pulled position is non-functional. I was more interested in having the...

    How good are the 2013 18" Passat wheels?

    I've bent TWO of mine, both right side wheels, on the same pothole a few weeks ago. It was right on the shoulder, hidden by the shade of a tree. Had a local wheel repair company work on them at $125 apiece, but it has taken them three times, and they're still not what I consider acceptable...

    Does vw passat 2013 tdi sel have rear view camera?

    Looks like either the RNS310 or 315. I did some looking around online and it looks like a '13 Passat TDi SEL Premium comes standard with the RNS510. I can't find any details whether the RNS31x units came with a backup camera or not. I know that the RNS315 in my wife's EOS doesn't have a...
