Heating pressure blow hose off over drain bottle

It started as a cooling fan running all the time while key is on. Battery tested fine but will die if the key is in aux. radio has high frq squeal when brakes are used and some times when turning. Seems to be worse in wet weather. Wipers are erratic at times. Check engine light was showing P 2185 -sensor was replaced. CEL comes on for a couple days and goes out for a couple. Low tire light comes on after CEL comes on. Put air in rear tire and it goes but may be a separate issue ( nail etc)

sometimes lights still on until I open the front door and I close it again. all of this while driving.

Should I delete the whole P.C.V system intirely. If so I still need to hook the break booster vaccume somewhere so that it could still do its job, in assuming breaks are important so deleting that's not a question. feel free to chime in any time.... another route would be to go with the 1 piece silicone kit witch will do away with all the cheep hoses and clamp from the o,e,m VW ones they use. I do understand what the pcv valve does and as well as the suction jet pump is there and honestly I don't see a reason te run a check valve.
So the point is nobody but old school VW and audi mechanics seem to be the ones who wanna push the whole use o.e.m v.w expensive parts. if its there its there for a reason stuff I get that but this is not one of them. But I wanna hear an actual discussion on the issue. the purpose of running one and then the benefits and of the reasons why some of us don't run them. If I went big turbo and aggressive tune maybe that would change the theory. But as of right now I do not know the answer these guys I joined this group today see how fast this page can get answers out there

i bought the car like that but needs to be inspected before hiting the road...

New battery new starter the fuel pump is making noise and is working could it be a fuse or a computer chip? I kind of think it might be the fuse for the injectors number 32 I believe it is

Very inconsistently-not many miles to be transmission?

What does it mean when my electrical power steering light comes on and car is hard to start. How much to fix this problem

We have tried changing the fuel pump and other stuff and yet havnt had the chance to drive it itbkeeps making sounds but does not want to turn on

My abs light will come on and then my e break light will flash and it stops after about a minute but when I shut my car off it won't start back up. All my dash lights disappear the radio won't turn on its like my battery is completely gone. I took my battery out and checked it, had 12 Volts, I put it on the charger and then put it back in, car started right up as if nothing happened... it just happened again too, what could be the issue?

I just replaced the compressor, which turned out to not be the issue at all as it is still not blowing cold on the highway. Not even the dealer ship can diagnose the problem. My guess, it has a high pressure vacuum leak. But I'm just here for another opinion. The car only has 40k on it and it's the SE model.

after needing a battery jump my rpm's went down to 550 and engine runs rough

IGNITION KEY DOESNT GO IN, THE STEERING WHEEL LOOKS LIKE IS NOT LOCK,IT FREE, BUT THE KEY DONT GO IN,

my e brake light comes on and beeps and then stays flashing....it does it only when the car is in motion. My brake fluid is good and my abs and brakes were just done a couple weeks ago...the light has been doing it just this last week.

We bought the car and when you turn the lights on it says bulbs are out. We had dealer replace, Low, high, running, tail lights on car free of charge. the next night we took it out and the light came on and the dash light doesnt light. got the icon showing a bulb with line going out of it with "!" in bulb. lights are working on exterior of the vehicle

When I ordered the valves the exhaust stems where longer then the stoke ones. Is this wrong or is this some kind of after market thing. I don't want to start if they will mess up my car. If the exhaust stems are bigger what does it mean?

I was sitting at an intersection and car just stopped. No stuttering. Cannot start vehicle now, although it's as if the car is running with no motor. Pulled all fuses, nothing parasitic draining the battery. What is going on???

I went to autozone to see why my check engine light was on. They said it was something with emissions and my gas cap. Replaced gas cap and have done a few driving cycles as they advised but the check engine light is still on. I need to renew my registration and am required to do an emissions test. I need the check engine light to be off to pass emissions. Please help!!

Is they're an easy way to install it under the dash to pedal?

Car starts fine, engine runs a little rough, when driving the transmission does not shift into the higher gears. We replaced the shift solenoids an that did not solve the problem. How can I find out if this car has a transmission control module? Is there anything else that could cause this?
