    B6 Passat P0303 (misfire cyl 3), P0299 (underboost) can they be related?

    Hi All, Sorry if this is in the wrong place. Its about a 2006 B6 Passat. I've got two error codes that are persistant. The underboost code will be fixed (I HOPE) when I replace the diverter valve which is currently sitting in my trunk. But I'm getting a persistently intermittent P0303...

    Need a Trusted Mechanic Near Stoneham, MA (VW, Non-TDI)

    (TL;DR: Looking for a trusted mechanic near Stoneham, MA todo a 2.0t timing belt) Hello All, A few years ago, with a heavy heart, I traded my 01 Golf TDI for an 06 Passat 2.0t. The TDI was great, and I miss it, but I just needed something a little bigger. Anyway, I'm approaching the 100k...

    Pentosin G12 Antifreeze, A4 Oil filter, A4 Light switch for sale!

    Since the switch is so small, I'd be happy to ship it. I was more concerned about shipping those bottles of G12. What do you think is a fair price for that switch?

    2002 Lancer AC clogged

    Hi guys. The Air conditioning evaporator (?) drain hose is clogged in my 2002 Mitsu Lancer. I crawled all over the engine compartment and underneath looking for the drain hose, but could not find it. Does anybody know where that hose may be? I'm pretty sure the drain hose is clogged...

    Drove my 2001 Jetta TDI into a deep pond..

    Engine Shaking under load/acceleration

    Amajason; Do you hear a fluttering noise? If your seeing some issues under hard acceleration, you may have a clogged intake or a bad MAF or both.

    gdjohny, ahh, but alas, we here in the colonies were not offered quattro on our beloved TDIs. We can only dream of having power go to all four wheels.

    Are TDIs better in the snow?

    How hard is it to add traction control to an 01 Golf? I've heard the talk of swapping in a different ABS pump and flushing the lines, is thst really it? If so, where does one procure that ABS pump?

    MIleage after Timing Belt Change

    define reputable! Did your mechanic replace all the needed parts? Did he check the timing with vag-com? Did he lock everything down with the proper tools? I'd check all this in a hurry, and if you need some encouragement, search for "timing belt fail"

    Hypermiling the 2007 Honda Civic 2.2 i-CTDi and 2007 Audi Q7 4.2 TDI

    Before anybody mentions how UNSCIENTIFIC this is, remember, the average driver is not going to vent the tank, is not going to wait for the diesel to settle, and they are certainly not going to drive to the same pump to get consistant results. I think this video is very useful to point out two...
