    Midwestern US
    Hello, I recently purchased a VW Passat (AWD, 3.6l VR6). It was equipped with the VW Adaptive Cruise control, which the dealership I purchased it from informed me wasn't working. After further investigation I'm beginning to realize that this is likely going to cause other issues within the cars...

  6. 2002 GTI VR6 Power Dump at 3k RPM

    My 2002 VW GTI VR6 started running a little rough before it was warmed up. Recently the "EPC" light has come on intermittently. Now I can't go over 2500-3000 rmp without total loss of power. Any Ideas? Suggestions? I've done a little reading is it my coil pack? Should I not be driving the car?

  8. 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...

    I swapped an ODB2 VR6 into a 96 Jetta GLX that came with the ODB1. However, I didn't swap ECUs. It runs like poo, runs SUPER-RICH and I get contact gas highs when I drive it longer than 3 or 4 miles. My automatic transmission only runs in 2nd & 4th, and I had to pull the TCM fuse so that I...

  13. A/C in a VR6 Swap

    Okay, so I'm continuing with my VR6 swap this Memorial Day weekend... and I'm realizing as I go along that I'm EVEN MORE of an idiot when it comes to working on VWs. Unlike Toyotas, the A/C system in my Jetta is no easy workaround. With summer on my ass, I'm inclined to keep the A/C in tact...
