  3. Limp mode

    Jetta / Bora MK5 / 2005–2010
    Hey guys So a couple of days ago my car went into limp mode after driving around. The gears on the dashboard started flashing and it was stuck in 3rd gear. I wasn't even able to reverse the car. Eventually it shuts off and the only way for it to start again is to let it cool down. I can drive...

  8. i found an EPC light ON, but now it is off. Is it OK?

    I just bought a 2019 Tiguan SE 3 weeks ago. An hour ago, when I was driving home with cruise control at 60 mph, I just found an EPC warning light was ON. I did not feel any abnormality on driving. Because I didn't know even what EPC standed for, I googled it after coming back home. I found it...

    Golf MK5 / 2003-2009
    So I bought a 2008 6spd Gti a week ago. I knew that it had no boost and I assumed the worst case scenario so I took the turbo off and it turned out the turbo was fine. I noticed before I took the turbo off that the Blow off valve was jbwelded shut and the diverted valve was closed off too. Never...

    My 2009 has only 90k miles and runs great.

Car runs fine and I can not detect anything (no surges, rpm stays...

    hmm . . . I posted this a couple of days ago, but it seems to have vanished. I am looking for the metal trim that is embedded in the rubber that goes around the passenger door window of a 1985 two-door golf. No luck with ECS Tuning or Orchid Euro. Does anybody have any brilliant ideas?

    When I start my Passat first time in the day it takes anywhere from 1-3 miles before I even get cool air out of the AC. After it is fine and blows cold. It started doing this about 4 or 5 months ago. I went to another dealer and started the same type car and had cold air immediately. Has anyone...

    Hi, my 2012 Tiguan (37k on clock) showed a coolant warning light last week. Only had a full service 4 weeks ago. Garage can’t find obvious external leak, so did pressure test. Nothing showed up.
