Volkswagen QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had a VW CC V6 AWD that was a fantastic vehicle: smooth riding, stable, great in turns, powerful. It was TERRIBLE in snow (live in MN). All season speed-rated tires didn't help. I am now selling the snow tires that saved me! Size 235/40R 18XL. They were used less than four months. The ride was great, snow and ice traction like brand new...even on a performance car. Asking $550.
A week ago I noticed water bubbling and pooling on the floor behind my driver seat. The water was clear; it had been raining that day and I'm assuming water was being thrown up into my car. I was able to soak up the water and dry it up completely with a fan. While doing so, I noticed a depression in the floor where the water had been pooling. A cursory visual didn't reveal a hole but noticed that there is a spot just below where the water pooled is softer than it should be, not a hole. Can anyone tell me how water is getting into the car and what I need to do. I am a senior on a limited income. The car is in excellent mechanical condition and I really need to keep it running. Thank you.
Does a relay control the headlamp(s)?

1.dirty engine oil
2.low engine oil
3.camshaft actuator circuit open or shorted
4.camshaft actuator circuit poor electrical connection
5. faulty camshaft actuator
i dont wanna buy the part if this isnt exactly whats wrong with it. i charged the battery and tried turning it on again and it just cranks. HELP!
I was getting 37 mpg in town and 48 mpg on the highway, I had the timing belt replaced as well as the water pump, the transmission fluid and filter done and the oil changed and new fuel filter. The car has 112,000 on it. After the all the work was completed, I noticed right away that my average mpg dropped, I'm now getting only 37 to 40 on the Highway and between 27 to 35 around town. I took the car back to the dealer and they checked the timing and said it's ok. I'm wondering if the belt maybe off by one tooth, the VW service manager said if it was I would know by the car running real rough? Could the tech be missing something, could the belt be off? No check engine lite has come on, at 40 mph when you step on the pedal it sounds like the timing is retarded. If anyone knows what the problem maybe, please advise!
the fuses blow when u hit the sunroof and or lock doors then won't start at all.... Other issue is they were pulling out onto highway and we're not able to accelerate. Sipped limit was 55 and they couldn't get speed and went down to 20 mph. Pulled off road and when turned off and got out alarm went off. Then wouldn't start. ???? Any ideas of why it won't accelerate and or if there is a way to disengage the alarm or why it keeps doing this? Thanks
It sounds like air is escaping from something
same light that comes on when emergency brake is pulled. light flashes and beeps. have checked emerg brake switch. dont have owners manual. problems happen randomly for no apparent reason every time you drive. even in park in the driveway.
Some parts that could cause this problem
The interior lights stay on after car is shut off. What causes this?
I replace the battery as the car would not start. This was not the cause. I took it to a VW dealer. They have checked all options and cannot find a fault. The engine does not crank at all
Want stay running
I barely get acceleration anymore. If i press on the gas too hard it blows completely for days. Eventually it begins to work again but not well. We still owe alot on it and can't trade it in .It's totally broken down now, anyone know any cheap repair shops for gti's?
factory alarm will not shut off
check engine light is on also, but I'm not sure if that's related. Used ODB scanner and got error codes:
P0134 - Powertrain
P0341 - Powertrain
P1128 - Powertrain
P0139 - Powertrain
and will come on again brake pads are in good shape.
This vehicle is getting no oil to the camshafts and lifters. Its very noisy. If you bring the rpm up it will quite down. The oil change history of this car is poor. Is this a noted problem on this engine?
