  3. MK5
    Hey everyone, looking to swap a blown engine in a 2008 Jetta Wolfsburg bought recently. When I started my research I found two different Vin codes(either A or K as 5th digit) both listed as fitting my car, to my understanding Vin A was listed as turbo on the codes does this mean it’s a more...

    Hi! I'm a recent convert to Volkswagen and I really don't know much about them. I have researched this issue a couple times on the internet and haven't been able to narrow it down to anything at all… I should probably mention that I live in Canada as well so this model of Golf has "City" tagged...

    Im in the middle of swapping my 1.8L 1996 golf CL engine out for a 2.0L 2001 cabrio engine.

    I'm looking for an used air cooled engine or crank case for a 1969 VW T3 squareback. There are other years of VW engines around the late 60 and early 70's that will also fit. I will pay cash or I'm willing to swap a 95 VW VR6 engine for it.

    So I have an 02 1.8t Jetta and I've been having some weird sounds when I drive. Basically, when im accelerating and the car goes over 2,000 rpms, I hear a weird high pitched sound that goes away once I lay off the gas. At first, I freaked out because I thought it might be the "drill sound of...
