    Panzer plate failed me! Need help on oil pan replacement ASAP

    Doesn't need to be a rock My OEM plastic wanna-be skid plate was removed by a frozen animal while traveling along 295 in Chicago. Been running naked for some time now. Perhaps I should order one of these plates.... Aluminum or Steel? That is the question.

    Why does A/C use turn my car into Mr. Hyde?

    I Feel Your Pain First, something is wrong. Perhaps your compressor is bad and it's "dragging" applying an unnecessary strain on your engine. Find yourself a local VW expert if you are not one yourself. Amazing what these folks will find! More amazing when the problem goes away. Second...

    Does this mean the oil may be used longer than the 10,000 change interval. Oh, lets say 15,000 since my car does not have the 'dirt' sensor.

    VW finds oldest running VW diesel in CA

    The Big "Duh" The big "Duh" sales event is perfect for the VW / Hyundai dealership. VW celebrates 30 years by doing a diesel promotion yet they offer no diesels in present line-up beyond V-10 Guzzler. DUH! Since this is our only offer and it needs special oil, filters, mechanics, blessings...

    Dealer wants our car

    Although I'm sure he was very nice, I doubt he would give you a nickle over trade for your car. Then his used car professional would walk around your car and tell you how it was scratched and tires were wore out, and there are stains on the floor mats and how unreliable the diesel is, how they...

    A Tale of Two Jettas

    I'd stay away from the 5w-30 oil changed car. I have the Tiptronic and its great. Just don't expect steller MPG. I have an all time average of about 37 mpg.

    Just drove an '03 1.8T, now wondering what's up with my car!

    If you've checked all the 'parts' and the alignment is within spec then IMO it's probably the tires. I've had so many tire issues with different cars that I cringe when it's time to buy tires. Different tread patterns, size, rim size, width, all effect the steering 'feel'. I've notticed that the...

    Why does A/C use turn my car into Mr. Hyde?

    I sort of had this problem, but mine manifested as just not cooling down the interior - the AC that is. It was sluggish off the line and had some other strange issues. Turned out to be the main radiator fan. Now that's it replaced, all my "issues" went away. Your AC should not have any...

    Looking For Mechanic in SC

    Thanks for the info. I sort of was guessing the local dealer wouldn't be the place to have the car fixed. A co-worker at the Eaton plant gave me a lead on a retired VW mechanic that works out of his garage, or something like that. I'll go test the waters and post feedback.
