I Have two problems first one is the need to replace a head gasket and need a good local mechanic. The next problem is my vw jetta glx vr6 does not pass the smog inspection. it barely passes the emissions part and their computer does not make contact with my computer. No o.b.d tests are confirmed so it does not pass the diagnostics part.I've tried reseting it by driving it all over hells creation but still nothing

I have a 2005 jetty 20 ltr with 100,200 miles. At a german car specialist I was quoted a price of $680 for the timing belt replacement and $550 for the alternator harness replacement. Is this a fair price? The dealer told me to replace the timing belt at 90K and they would chage over $800 for the job.

Hi, I am looking to find the name of the part that houses the automatic window switches and locks, as well as has the arm rest in it for the driver's side. I can find none online, and I am thinking it would help if I knew what to call that part.
i am unable to shift into 1st 3rd and 5th gear, however i am able to shift to 2nd and fourth cables seem fine and transmission was not a problem any thoughts as to what the problem may be
I had my car services and I already knew i needed an alignment, but they told me they cant even do an aligntment because they need to replace the suspension or something? How much would this cost me?

car not excellarating over 40 mphs.
NEVER UNDERSTOOD ALL OF THE FUSS OVER BEARING FAILURE IF INNER RACE IS NOT SUPPORTED...I JUST PRESS THE HUB ONTO THE NEW BEARING BY TORQUING DOWN THE AXLE NUT WITH THE SPINDLE INSERTED, AFTER TAPPING THE HUB INTO THE BEARING AS IT SEATS.
TORQUING THE NUT WITH A 1/2 INCH BREAKER BAR PRESSES THE HUB DOWN TO A ZERO SEAT OR VERY CLOSE...GREASING THE HUB SPLINE, AND INNER RACE LIGHTLY HELPS EVERY THING ALONG! OF COURSE I USE A MODIFIED SCHLEGE VW PRESS KIT THAT ALLOWS ME TO DO THE WORK WITH THE BEARING ASSEMBLY ON THE CAR. USING COMPRESSORS ON THE STRUTT SPRING RELIEVES TENSION AND ALLOWS YOU TO SWING THE STRUTT TO DISENGAGE THE AXLE/CV SPINDLE.....
When I drive VW Jetta 1995 with low-beam lights, no problem occurs. When I try to turn high-beam lights on, I pull the lights switch (which switches between high- and low-beam), but as soon, as I release the switch, it automatically switches to low-beam again. What can it be and how can it be fixed?
The cigarett lighter will not work. Checked the fuse what else can it be?

Is the fuel pump supposed to have a moderately loud sound when I turn the key to 'accessory', i.e. when contact is on?
It's a non-stop sound that's been there for 2 months since I last had a repair and they - I don't know why - made a bypass from the fuse panel to the fuel pump plug !?!?
Still completely cold at start-up, once I started the car, a few seconds later the temp light went on. I had this happen once before when the car overheated. Yet the temp needle was at the cold extremity. I let it run till the needle crossed 90 degrees to show sign of an overheat, but once it got to 90 degrees it stood there just as usual. No overheat.
Why would the temp light go on, moreso right after a cold start??? OBDII Scanner found nothing, yet I don't want this to happen on a highway far from home next time :S
Never mind, since there was no overheat, I checked coolant level and it was low. That was the reason!
I had a diagnostic check done and the codes are 00518 and 00537. The car won't accelerate check engine light came on
