    B4 Passat Key Light

    I'm fortunate to have the OEM Keys on several of my TDI's. The small lamp in the OEM B4 key usually just needs a battery, lamp, or spring if you still have the OEM key. Here's a pic of the OEM components.

    Anyone had success with head gasket sealants in a gasser?

    So, we have a 98 Camry (~300k mi) with a blown head gasket amongst the TDI's. No fluid mix but it's definitely burning coolant and pressurizing the coolant system. As much as I disapprove of using sealants instead of fixing it right, the car itself IMO is just not worth it (Don't tell R :p)...

    Glow plug light flashing for What reason?

    I've read different reasons for the flashing glow plug light issue on the B4 . Some say it's related to the brake light switch and others say something brelated to the #3 injecter electrics. So, I guess my question is how many reasons are there for the GP Light to flash? I'm currently working...
