History- (short)
1. Currently having leaks of coolant popping up continuously everywhere it seems. going on for about 3 months.
2. Engine makes a ticking sound and becoming more progressive with time.
3. starting to smell gas in oil. immediately after I changed it.
4. Malfunction light- exhaust temperature sensor is a problem. Could this alone be the cause for the rest?
5. Had radiator replaced 3-5 months ago.
6. Temperature sensor use to be an ongoing issue and have had thermostat "stuck". Need to check still.
7. Keep noticing that my coolant reserve cap keeps coming loose. seems to shut Ok though.
8. Had the "engine block only" replaced 1.5 years ago with used block from junk yard. Problem caused by a lack of oil. Had oil change one month prior though and had checked it days before engine failed. (deal seemed shady and oil changed by the same guy who "replaced" the engine).
There was no compression in the engine. I saw this done myself but I would have believed whatever he showed at the time.

Rough idle, car engine burns hot but thermo-gauge doesn't show this.
I had used those STOP LEAK pellets for the coolant at one time, before radiator was replaced.

There isn't any small part to glue on the glass till its ready for the mirror to be replaced??

My engine bucks forward and backward when shifted into forward or reverse. Also a loud clank and engine movement at 2500 or 3000 rpms when it shifts gears. Changed the rear mount and passenger side mount. Still lots of engine movement.

I recently had mechanics add a timing belt kit that included water pump, coolant flange, tensioner, thermostat, and belts. I've only driven it twice since Sunday and less then 10 miles. First day was okay but now it sounds like a rattling noise or clinking as I idle the car and gets louder as i push on pedal. The noise goes away when I turn wheel.

Jetta, 1.8 turbo, 6 speed manual transmission, having trouble pushing shifter into 1st gear, balance gears are ok and smooth. No issues in pick up and driving, only annoying during traffic time, and I have to lift up in 2nd gear because I'm unable to push into 1st gear. Sometimes reverse gives issues, but not that as bad as 1st. 1st gear sometimes can work, but I have shift really fast and sometimes, very seldom it will allow me to shift in 1st, any advise would be very much appreciated, thanks!

Motor shut down probably by the oil pressure switch. Drained oil, replaced oil pan and refilled. Motor cranks but won't start. Was told to replace the pressure switch but still only cranks. No code read on my OBD II reader.

Sometimes when it sits a while it will start back up again and sometimes it may take a day. This happens randomly

Steering wheel shakes then jerk hard to the right Happens periodically

I need to know the location of the output speed sensor on my 2010 Jetta SE 2.5. Please help me!

If it's just the slave cylinder do they have to replace the whole clutch?

I noticed my EPC light would randomly flash on during a road trip and when I would corner hard the oil pressure warning would flash and then go away. I parked it thinking I would get it checked out. After a morning of normal driving, I got in to go home and the EPC light was on along with the check engine. Car started fine, then began to struggle and sputter. Drove a short distance and now it won't start at all. we thought maybe it was a cylinder coil and tried to change each of them out. That didn't fix it and it still won't start. Tried to run codes, but 16 came up because we'd been switching out all the cylinders, etc. codes are cleared and now nothing comes up. Any ideas? Could a fuel pump cause a car not to start? spark plugs and battery are fine. The engine tries to start but won't.

Dead battery

disconnected the ground on the battery to clear the code. drove approximately 15 miles and thats when the low oil warning light came on ! the check eng light never came back on. it has oil in it but not running right. Please tell me, if I just need to drain the oil, change the filter. Or anything else that might help. the oil looks fine. just darkish and dirty.

I'm looking to purchase a 2006 VW Jetta 2.5 and they brought it to their mechanic and the mechanic said it needs a new catalytic converter. I m wondering how important the cat is. When I test drove the car it seemed to run and sound good. The car has low miles and is at a good price and I don t want to turn it down if the cat isn t a big deal

checked it out with my instruments and its came with an error code p0299 which stands for an under boost in the turbo ,i ve checked the dv still intact no tear,dont know maybe its expire,i love this car pls what should i do ,its makes the noise only when you accelerate for power.

I have a standard 6 speed transmission.

Noise will disappear when making tight right curve, but will reappear when straightening back out. It does not do this on left curves.
Also started noticing that when I accelerate the clutch briefly engages. This does this on cruise control as well if it needs to accelerate going up a hill to try and maintain speed, but drops out because clutch engaging.
