  1. New Golf owner questions

    Golf MK4 / 1999-2002
    I just bought a 2000 Golf GLS with about 210k on it. Picked it up as a beater for the winter but didn’t realize the previous owner never really cared for it. I also cannot get ahold of him for some reason. What oil is recommended for it? The manual lists “VW502 00 or VW500 00 or VW501 01”...

    New Beetle Technical Forum
    I have an 02 beetle that is losing coolant. No drops on the ground, can't find any wet spot and not overheating. I did try to do a pressure test and found that as soon as I build any pressure at all it leaks out the bypass on the overflow ball. I can't get it to 2 pounds before it leaks down...

    I'm getting conflicting answers to the following question. I have a 2005.5 VW Jetta Tdi (engine code BRM) with six speed auto tranny (code HQN) with 189,000 miles. Does this setup have a dual mass flywheel or just a torque converter? Thanks, Carsonic
  11. Brake and Power Steering Fluid Question

    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...

    Our 2016 Golf recently had a leak around the sun roof which caused some staining of the fabric on the ceiling. Fortunately, it was fixed under warranty. The service manager told us that the water drains for the sun roof are small and need to be cleaned out periodically. He suggested that we pay...
