  1. New Beetle Technical Forum
    I ordered a PCV valve, supposedly for the 2.0L engine (for a 2004 New Beetle). It looks like a 3" diameter black plastic disc, about 1/2" thick, with two hose ports sticking out of it. I've scoured the engine and the web looking for any indication of where this thing lives but can't figure it...
  2. Jetta / Bora MK6 / 2011 and up
    I own a 2015 Jetta TdI SEL and the car started to crank longer, each day for about 2 weeks, then the starter just clicked and wouldn't start. I took the battery out, charged it and it started doing the same thing, cranking slowly again. The battery is 5 years old and I want to replace it. My...
  3. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I ended up "fixing" my overheating issue I addressed in my last thread but now I got a new problem.. I took the car to work which is about a 13 mile drive, 11 of those being highway. On my way in I was doing a steady 65-70 with the motor at about 3300RPM, traffic speed picked up some so as...
  4. Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    Good morning! I've looked through the manual, and I'm HOPING I'm wrong, but I don't believe there is seat memory for the SE? If anyone can tell me differently, I'd be pretty happy! It's such a SILLY thing, but when my husband drives, he puts the seat back and sideways maybe....lol....?! I...
  5. Air-cooled Owners Club
    Hello: I am looking at building a late 60's, early 70's VW Beetle "Hot Rod" for my wife. I am new to the VW world, but I have built many classic American Muscle cars. I want to build something very much like the photo below. I would like to know what I need to watch out for when looking for...
  6. GTI MK1 / 1983-1984
    I have spent some time now reading the amazingly valuable discussions on this and other VW forums. Incredible how much I have learned about my 35-year-old Convertible purchased new in Germany. Appreciate the info -- ALL of it. Here is my specific problem (challenge): I want to use a new GPS...
  7. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Just recently noticed my temperature gauge hasn’t been reaching its usual levels when driving up hill, it’s registering much lower than usual, displaying temperatures more akin to rolling downhill in neutral in the winter time. After driving around for a while, up and down and around, with the...
  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. General Volkswagen Discussion
    Hello. I changed the oil in my golf 3, 1.4L, 1997, and 2 weeks passed since. After i changed the oil, the oil light got on and it stayed like that until the engine got warm. It does the same thing every time i start the car. I took the car to a mechanic, and he sayed that he doesn't know why...
  10. VW Tiguan Technical
    So glad to have found this group! As the header says, I bought my 2019 SE Tiguan on Monday. One thing we noticed is when I open the driver's door, there is a motorized sound for about 5 seconds that seems to be coming from the rear of the vehicle as though something is adjusting. Anyone have...
  11. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    Hi there, I am a new member having purchased my Tiguan 2.0 ltr TDI fourmotion in February. I have just visited my local VW dealer to arrange service continuity and as I am traveling to Spain in May I asked if they could recommend what beam benders were needed for driving in Europe. This...
  12. MK1 Rabbit Engine
    I've been trying to trouble shoot this vehicle for the past few days and it's been a headache. I'm also having issues getting it tagged that's why it sat for so long and I can no longer park it where it currently sits. So far I've established that glow plugs are getting power and fuel shut off...
  13. Jetta / Bora MK4 / 1999-2004
    Hi there, I am looking to buy a MK4 Jetta and just took one with 283,000km for a test drive and man does it ever drive nice compared to my Jeep! We found one for sale fairy close to us that needs a throttle position sensor with only 140,000km and for $1,500... The owner says it needs a throttle...
  14. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hello everybody! I'm a recent owner of a 2007 VW Rabbit with 93,000 miles, which I bought for a nice price overall. I really like the car, but it is already costing me a fair amount of money. I'm wondering if the valve body transmission problem will eventually affect all rabbit owners? The...
  15. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    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...
  16. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    WELL the drive home today had it's own adventure. NOT with the Lemon Snowball made famous by its own thread...dragging my feet with finishing repairs on that thing...but with the 84. Got half way back...heard a squeal and looked in rearview to see a cloud of smoke pouring out behind me. Pulled...
  17. General Volkswagen Discussion
    Hello everyone,, Just picked up a 1997 Jetta with the gas 2.0. It has 170,000 miles. I got the thing for $150, owner said it was overheating and suspected the head gasket went bad. Anyway, it runs and drives great, but it does get hot. I don't think it's the head gasket because the car has...
  18. VW Tiguan Technical
    I bought a 2018 Tiguan and added the OEM roof racks and Ski/Snowboard racks. My only issue is I after adding the ski racks is a whistling noise that sounds like a tea kettle. It is not noticeable when I crank the radio. Otherwise I start wanting a cup of hot tea, or the tone to change to on a...
  19. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I finally got the motor swap on my 1981 VW Caddy 1.6l diesel. Change fuel filter and fill with fuel and also fuel pump. Gave it a little starting fuel and it cranked right up and ran about 30 sec. Hit the starter again and ran for about 30 sec. During this 30 sec I pulled the choke and the motor...
  20. Volkswagen Technical Discussions - General
    This is my first time on here, idek if I’m in the right spot BUT, I bought my mk4 Wolfsburg 1.8t MT a few months back and now I’ve come to a weird spot. They probably lead to one big thing But In hours of google research I have found nothing that fits my case. 1st: (this is probably simple)...
