I'm looking for a car to use as my daily (I average anywhere from 450-600 miles a week just from work, primarily highway) and came across a 2007 Rabbit 4 door for sale with 75k miles. The seller is asking for $4,000. It appears to be in great shape appearance wise. I'm going to look at...
Good Morning All,
98 Cabrio new to me. Doesn't like going into 5th gear easily. More than half the time either binds or goes into third.

Good evening everyone,

I have recently given back my 2016 GTD after my lease came to an end.

I got a couple of free gallons of Mobile One full synthetic 15W-50 oil from a friend.
It says it's for API Service SN, not a diesel designation.
It would make a great summer oil. Can I use it in my daily driver 1.6 NA engine.
Normally I run Chevron Delo 400 15-W-40.
Hello everyone, new girl here. I am considering purchasing a 1970 convertible beetle. I live in Northeastern Ohio and it would become my daily driver. My concern is when I would be driving it in the winter. I know it can be doable as I have seen a few out during winter months, however how...
I recently was getting a p0299 underboost code. I just couldn't find any leaks. I remembered the exhaust clamp that needed fixing. The boost level had dropped from peaking at 18 to like a 11. Noticeable loss of power.
Not too difficult. Since the clamp was already as tight as it would go, I...

Folks tend to get discouraged, and need to see the end product. Now I didn't have to rebuild a rusty bucket, but I did have to do a lot of things to make it a Daily Driver that was reliable..... So take heart, the proper application of Monies, and Time you can get yours to where you want it to...
So I bought my caddy from a guy who had another that he uses as a daily driver and he suggested that I switch out the air box with another model since the one I have has the air filter before the engine oil. Kinda hard to explain so I'll provide a picture. In the picture is the kind I have and I...

I have an 81 diesel pickup, wondering if there is supposed to be some type of gravel/splash guard under or near the crank pulley. It seems to be just sitting there waiting for mud, water and anything else to kick up from the tire. This pickup has been an occasional, nice weather kind of driver...
