  1. Switched to premium gas in my 2018 Passat

    Passat Owners Club
    Even though my car calls for either 87 or 91 I ended up putting in premium these last 2 fill ups. On 87 the car just seemed sluggish with power like after a red light. I know I have 19 inch rims, but I was like where is the darn get up? I figured I'd put in premium and see if I saw a difference...
  2. Pcv valve, replace or repair???

    MK1 Rabbit Engine
    Hi there. The repair shop wanted to charge a fortune to repair my 92 cabby's choking engine. (replace deteriorated PCV valve and intake hose ) I figured I'd tackle it myself. Although hoses are available on ebay, it seems nearly impossible to find PCV valves these days. Any suggestions?

    MKV How-to's and DIY's
    This will be my first post on the rabbit owners club, I hope it is well received. The following images are how I managed to fix the cord and ball combo on the back hatch cover.

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    I had hubcaps on my little bunny and someone broke 1 and stole 3. Now I just have steel wheels. I figured maybe I'd paint them. Has anyone had any luck with this? Rustoleum sounds like a great contender....

  17. Electrical Issue with Starter

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    My blower fan wasn't working. I eventually figured out that the problem was a corroded fuse on the A/C relay. Now I've put the fuse panel back in its place but along the way I've developed a couple of new electrical problems. 1. the starter motor won't turn 2. the stereo is not coming on What...
  18. That's what I get for bragging....

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    So the new '79 that I brought home isn't running yet. Compression is around 150 in #3 & #4. Didn't test 1 & 2 as I figured the head needs to come off anyway to diagnose. Stupid Hippies and their stupid WVO. Although, in his defense, the timing was set at 1.15, so this engine has probably...
