  1. Golf MK5 / 2003-2009
    Hey all, New to the site and new to owning a VW - I recently picked up a good condition 2008 1.9 TDI Golf Plus and am really enjoying the car. When initially viewing the car, I noticed that the one thing I wasn't able to check was the brake fluid level, after having purchased it and attempting...

  3. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I am looking to do some fluid maintenance on the car since they have been in there for 5+ years. For the brakes I imagine any old DOT3 should work as stated on the cap, or does it need to be something more specific? For the power steering, I have the red cap and I believe it takes Dexron II...

    I have the above car. I have just under 80K miles on it. I drive a bunch, clearly. I've followed all of the maintenance schedules and then some, but have this re-occurring issue with acceleration. Occasionally, out of the blue, the car has a big lag in shift from gear to gear, most prevalent...
  5. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    1981 Rabbit, 1.7L CIS Fuel is definitely getting to the 'fuel distributor' because I had a leak in the cold start valve fuel line and fuel was abundant. That is, I'm confident everything before the fuel distributor is pressurized. However, the car was not starting (this is after a full engine...
  6. MKV Rabbit FAQs & Newbies
    I am perplexed in trying to trouble shoot the clutch on my 2008 MKV Rabbit. :o The pedal recently lost a lot of its resistance. It now it engages pretty far out. Initially, I thought it may be the master cylinder. I checked both the master cylinder and slave cylinder and No leaking. The...

    My brake pedal hit the floor on the exit ramp coming off the highway, and the brake light came on. I used the gears to slow me down while trying to pump the pedal and it just kept hitting the floor. Eventually some resitance came back in the pedal, and I was able to use the breaks to come to my...
  8. General Volkswagen Discussion
    I am asking for any of your experiences of similar issues and fixes please. The story so far, my 2006 2.0 tdi Passat had a full clutch kit including flywheel slave and fluid change, all was fine until she became redundant for a few weeks and when used again the clutch pedal became very stiff...
  9. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and happy to be here! Well, I decided to bite the bullet and keep the rabbit I bought recently. I was worried that I made a mistake after seeing how fast I had to start paying for repairs, and reading a bit too much about things like transmission problems...

    I have 1981 Caddy with 1.6l diesel. I have got it to start, I though it was the fuel pump, changed it and same old thing. I can spray starting fluid and it will run until that is gone. I took it to a Volkswagen mechanic and he said that the engine did not have enough compression to pull fuel to...

    My 82 rabbit's brakes are doing some abnormal things: Brake light turns on when I brake, and recently the light stays on indefinitely regardless of braking. Stopping distance has increased dramatically, to where it is no longer safe to drive. Spongy brake pedal hits the floor with little...

My slave and master cylinders seem to be ok and i cant see any fluid leaks anywhere in...
  13. Ask A Volkswagen TECH - Hosted by Nitroscope8
    Hey. Ive got a 2005 passat 1.8t 4motion manual tranny. So i was driving down the road shifting normally and then all the sudden my clutch pedal went all the way to the floor and i had no clutch use. I drove for a little while intending to get to where i was going but was forced to stop and...
  14. Routan Owners Club
    How can I get this light to turn off? I changed and bleed the brake recently. This is not trigger by the e-brake. The e-brake does not come on after 15 seconds of starting the car; it registers on it's own every time I put it on/off. I suspect the brake fluid level sensor needs replacing or...
