    Clutch quit on me

    Hi folks, I was driving through stop and go traffic and all of a sudden the shifter did not want to go into gear anymore. Almost as if pressing on the clutch didn't do a thing. The only way I can get it into gear is with the engine off. In fact, this is how I managed to roll the car out of...

    Hydrolocked. What now?

    Bad storm tonight. I was driving into the grocery store and their main driveway suddenly sunk into about 2 feet of water. I was doing about 30 mph in 2nd gear and engine stumbled and stalled. Pushed the car out of the puddle in neutral, tried to start and it would not turn over. Luckily, I was...

    Cam sprocket won't budge

    I'm removing the TB in my B4, everything going smooth so far, drove out the cam bolt, loosened the tensioner, cam lock and IP pin are in, but for the life of me cannot get the cam sprocket to move. I've tapped a punch through the little hole probably harder than I should have and nothing. Any...

    Hi Folks, I was wondering if anyone near the central/south CT area has TB tools for the B4 that I can borrow (or rent) for a day. I can pick up and drop off.

    IP Timing with VCDS

    When pulling up the timing graph with VCDS, I'm not sure which of the listed engines correspond to mine! I have a 96 Passat, but none of the options seem fully straightforward. By the way, I might as well use this opportunity to ask how do I know if I have a 1Z or AHU? My ECU is BK, if that...

    JSW Back Seat

    Hi all, Sorry if this is too simple of a question, but do the rear seats in the JSW ('10, '11) fold down all the way flat? I recently test drove one and the sales guy told me that they do not, but I thought I'd post here and see if there are any simple tricks to make it happen. I may be...

    Injector removal question

    In the write-up provided in the kerma tdi page it says that the engine must be completely cool before injector removal. They make it a point to write it on caps and say it is very important, but do not specify why. Is it just a matter of safety? I plan on doing this after work and would ideally...

    Question about N18 EGR Solenoid Valve

    So I just obtained a N18 from a parted B4 and I'm trying to test it to see if it works. Applying vacuum to the "vac" port at 0 volts, it does not hold, and leaks vacuum out the "out" port (EGR). I do hear the solenoid engage at 12V. Question is: would this conclusively make it a bad N18? Is it...

    Bad shaking getting worse - please help!

    A few weeks ago I started noticing what I thought was "shuddering": just some mild vibration at the gas pedal at certain rpms, barely noticeable otherwise. Well, it's been getting progressively worse and just after 2 or 3 weeks it is getting to the point that it is very uncomfortable to be in...

    Sunroof Liner

    Is there is a way to replace the inner liner on the B4 sunroof without having to remove the main headliner? I replaced my headliner a few years ago but didn't do that piece... now I'm regretting it 'cause it doesn't match the new liner.

    Loose oil pan bolts!

    Just changed my oil and noticed: 1) Oil pan cover is missing one of its bolts and thus hangs loose. 2) About 5 or 6 of the actual oil pan bolts were completely loose, some halfway out and 1 missing altogether. Can someone provide either part numbers or specs on these missing bolts? I noticed...
