when ever i put my car key will see in my dashboard starting rage active and no ignition light shows.why! pleas i need the ignition light first. HELP.

Thinking about buying this car but the one we looked at had the back seat drivers side window down about an inch. Did not see where we could get the window to come up. Any advice would be appreciated.

The passenger seat is stuck in the relax position and will not come back up is there an easy way to fix this problem?

Was about to replace timing belt due to car now having 106k total miles. Water pump was replaced in August 2012. 40-50k since then.

I start it up after priming the fuel pump a few times. Than it will act like it is out of fuel and it dies. I replaced the fuel filter has new battery and newish alternator. I have not put a code tester on it yet.

my 2002 Jetta TDI has left to right play in the front end and is getting worse. No noise. Up on stands i can move both front tires slightly horizontally but not vertically (top and bottom of tire). when i do this the shock rotates slightly as well. There is a small amount of slop in the control arm at the ball joint on both sides. Is this natural or the problem??
Any suggestions,Thank you so much!

Dont know much about cars but i am willing to learn, is this job to big to do myself what ever the problem is. Please help if can thanks

Turned on my Jetta this morning and waited for it to warm up for a bit as usual, after a while I tried to take off and I couldn't. The day before I hit a very unexpected dip, and I thought I had messed up my bumper but I didn't, I drove about 1 1/2 or 2 miles home after than. When I moved the car I saw a puddle of oil in the parking spot and left another one where I moved it to. BTW the check engine light and EPC just went on.

Well here's my dilemma... I drive a golf mk1 2l 8v turbo, the car was overhauled 2 weeks back... Today I saw my no 4 injector leaking from the rail, so I bought new injector seals and closed it up tight with no leaks! I drove 10km's with it and then I could hear busting noises in my exhaust, it wasn't so bad at first, now its missfiring, but when u floor it, it seems to go smoothly until u back of the gas then it misses again... Please note the car has new cambelt, new fan belt, the coil and everything works, we checked the plugs and even put new plugs ... It ran smoothley at first for like the first 5km's then it started to miss... The car starts on the turn without touching the gas and idles. Only when I press the gas then it starts to miss fire... The injectors can't be blocked since when I really press it, it doesn't missfire anymore... There is a strong fuel smell coming from my exhaust... I'm not sure I

I am having issues with my 1999 VW Beetle. Check engine light has been coming on and now it flashes, with poor engine performance accompanying it. I want to know if there is an alternative method for obtaining diagnostic trouble codes with out a code scanner, with perhaps a multimeter, or jumper wire?
