    I've got a 2017 Tiguan S, no power lift gate, and it wont open. almost like the button isnt working. anyone know why this would happen? We've been getting some heavy rain so maybe the rain somehow got in and is causing problems?

    '98 Camry 3.0 V6 1MZFE engine

    Probably won't be any takers here, bigtime longshot, but... I have a 98 camry with the 3.0 V6 1MZFE engine in it. The car itself is an Ohio car so its rusted as all hell but the engine and transmission run like a top. 230,000 miles on it, gaskets were replaced about 50k ago. I've read that...

    WTB P3 multi-gauge

    As title says, I'm in the market for a P3 Gauge for my 2016 GTI. I'd like one with the analog boost sensor and track pack, but not a deal breaker if they dont have it. MAP is having a sale (link in the vendor classifieds) and it reminded me that I want one badly but can't afford to spend that...

I always wondered why his breath smelled like urinal...

    As the title says My windshield got cracked yesterday when a Ferrari 458 flung a rock into it. Theres not many auto glass shops around my area so I may have to go the Safelite route, but I keep seeing horror stories about how bad they are. Has anybody had a good experience with them? I know...

    Android Auto update killed Android auto functionality

    The most recent version of Android auto completely killed Android auto on my Galaxy S7/car.

So after struggling to set up samsung mirrorlink and car mode in stop...

    Check your coolant!

    Hey everybody, if you're about to get hit with this big cold blast, don't forget to test your coolant to make sure it is still "good" down to the temps on the forecast - especially if you have an older car that hasn't been flushed in a while. A tester is like 3 bucks - much cheaper than an...

    DCC shock/strut replacement

    Could not easily find a thread on this so I made one. I just crossed the 40k mile mark, and am getting near the time I want to lower the car with springs. Lowering springs + old car = new shocks/struts. Looking into shock/strut options, all I can find that are compatible with DCC are the...

    Loud "ticking" sound under hard boost

    As in the title, I am getting a loud ticking sound when under hard boost. It's usually only above 40 mph or so, I'm trying to pinpoint the rev range and boost reading when it happens. I get some compressor surge and then the ticking sounds, usually only does it once but today I started getting 3...
