    On my way home from work, I put the car into neutral and came to a stop sign. The idle shot up to 3k RPM and I shut the car down as soon as I got home (which was down the street). I think it's the throttle cable but I'm not sure how to test what it is, any tips or solutions to fix the high idle?

    I have an ‘81 Scirocco that doesn’t idle by itself during initial start up (cold). Has anyone have had such issues and what might be the cause? Also my fuel gauge doe not work, how would the sending unit be replaced? thanks

    Hello, Having trouble with my wifes 2012 Jetta 2.5 SE. It just die randomly, engine, lights, everything and then just start back up again no problem. No codes or service engine light.

    I have been up and down these forums, posted in facebook groups, and talked to pretty much every volkswagen tech in my area at this point so I finally decided to make an account and post. I bought the car for $800. 90k miles barely any rust and interior is in good shape. 1.7 CIS with a 4 speed...

  7. Passat B7 Forums
    Hi there. I have a 2019 Passat Wolfsburg that I have had for 6 months with ~3500 miles on it. I am getting steering wheel vibrations above 60 mph. I took the car to the dealer who road force balanced the wheels. I now feel vibrations at lower speeds (~40 mph) and at higher speeds (60 mph and...

    I have a 1981 VW Rabbit Pick (1.6) up that needed a battery so I let it sit for a season. When I installed a new battery and cranked it, it smokes really bad, is skipping, and wont idle. The smoke out of the tailpipe is a dusty type black. I thought that it may be an injector so I took them out...

    I feel like this is going to be an obvious answer and I'm going to feel dumb for asking but my 81 rabbit pickup 1.6 coolant system has random spontaneous problems, so starting with the reservoir I can't tighten the cap on all the way otherwise it builds up steam in the coolant system and...
  11. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I just joined this club, and hope someone has experienced, or have knowledge of the same problem as I have with my 2007 Rabbit. The local VW dealership is not able to pinpoint the problem, and by process of elimination the cost could easily be more than the value of the car. Cold or warm, when...

    Ok so I've been driving a 1981 vw rabbit caddy for about 2 months now. The engine sat for over a year but started right up and has been fine till a few days ago. I was driving down the highway and it died in gear some how and felt like it bound up. My first thought was oil or fuel. But now I'm...
  13. Classic VW Beetle / Bug Forum
    RPM stays high while shifting between gears. If in neutral and the accelerator is depressed momentarily the RPM stays high for about 5 seconds then goes back to idle RPM. Any ideas please.
  14. MK1 Rabbit Engine
    I have an 82 Caddy w/1.9 AAZ diesel. Recently I developed an over heating issue when it is under load such as climbing long hills or any under boost conditions. I have changed the alt and A/c belts, bottom radiator hose and hose return from rad to coolant tank. Also flushed the cooling system...
  15. Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Strange one here. GT TDi 140. A lot of times when i shift into 5th gear around 50ish MPH the car starts stuttering as if its misfiring or struggling to get fuel. Quickly dip and release the clutch and its resolved. Less often in first trying to pull away it will stutter, come off the accelerator...
