  3. TDI / Diesel Owners Club
    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. Comments please.
  4. Jetta Owners Club
    So i bought my 2007 2.0T jetta used last summer. When I first purchased the vehicle the fan only worked on one speed (MAX), which I was ok with. After a few months the fan stopped working altogether. I did some research and assumed that this was a problem with the blower resistor. So, I ordered...

  12. Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    I have owned my 2009 Tiguan for (2) years now and it has always made a whiney noise from the rear end. I have taken it to VW and they "guessed" it to be the fuel pump and said that this is common with the Tiguan and dismissed it at that. I am wanting to do some traveling this summer but am just...

    The bearings are once again giving signs of needing to be replaced. This time I'm going to replace the entire assembly. Basically seems like a bolt off-bolt on operation. Will I need to get a new alignment as a result? Will be replacing the front struts with springs as a unit later this...
