  1. Cluster fail

    Okay, I'm thinking this is a short in wiring because when the cluster freezes and the LCDs go blank the transmission goes into LIMP MODE. I know the cluster is working because when I park it, pull the negative battery cable, wait 30 seconds and reattach it, the cluster will dance like my native...
  2. Swap Noob

    Hey all... Like I said in my intro post, I'm swapping a bad motor this weekend and I'm curious if there are any pitfalls regarding swapping my transmission (auto) from my bad engine to the other. I've got a 96 Jetta GLX VR6 with an automatic transmission, riddled with electronic quirks...

  4. Car dies when cold starting

    I have a 1997 Jetta GLX with 220,000 miles, i have a slightly rough idle, to be expected with that many miles. However when i start my car when it is cold i have to rev it (just keep it above normal idle rpm) for awhile or it will stall. Once it is warm it is ok. I replaced spark plugs and...

  8. Clutch Friction Point Issue

    Ok, so since I got my 1996 Jetta GLX VR6 about 2 years ago, the friction point has changed slightly, seemingly based on temperature. I thought nothing of it. Then about a month ago I noticed it was really difficult to shift into any gear. I usually have to shove it into gear, making the car...
  9. 03 Passat mirror problem

    my folding mirrors stopped working. the best way i can put it is that just after i folded them (which worked fine) i started the car later then they wouldnt open back so i manually popped it out to adjust them. i doubt the motor would be dead cuz both stopped working at the same time, what are...

    Just got a 2003 Passat GLX with an airbag fault. So since its a GLX, most things are electrical (ex: power seats). This car was hit just on the left side, the drivers side. Basically the damage is driver front door, passenger door, and a little bit of a frame work in the middle. But it's just...
