does anyone know where exactly the bleeder valve for the power steering is located?
My 1999 VW Passat "popped" when I started it and oil went everywhere underneath the car. It still starts and I can pull it forward and backward but there is no oil left and I'm afraid to drive it. What happened and how do I fix it?
I have a 1999 VW Passat. The problem started with the Gas Door. One day it just stopped working, Then came the driver's window, then a few weeks later the other three windows. Now I do not have any of the windows working nor the Gas door. The interior lights are working, the sunroof is working. I checked the Convinience Control box undert the passanger seat. Cables are in perfect condition, no water or anything. I have also gotten a brand new master switch and still did not work. Fuses are good. What else could be the problem? Anyone can help???
When I turn my key on all my lights come on but when I try to start it does nothing. Have checked battery and starter and both are fine. Which one of the relays is the one I need to check?

I have a 1999 Passat and it overheats on the highway, in town driving it runs right around 190 (normal). I have replaced the coolant temp sensor, I did notice that the electric fan was not on while overheating, and did come on when I turned on the A/C. I have read about cracked head gaskets, but did not seem to notice any fluid or vapors coming out, oil looks the way it should.
3 days ago I noticed that the front passenger side carpet underneath the dashboard was wet a friend told me it was coolant leak. How do I fix?
My transmission was shifting very hard after I had a transmission flush and I later found out it was because the garage did not put synthetic fluid back into it. Over the weekend I had my transmission's swapped with a used one and synthetic fluid. The car was driven from Boston to Albany directly after and it was shifting perfectly, with no problems. Later in the day I took the car down the road and the RPMs were going up but I wasn't going faster. The transmission kicked back on but it still wasn't shifting correctly, even on the downshift. I also think I hear a quiet screeching (?) noise. I'm not sure how else to explain the noise or what the car is doing but it is not normal! Any suggestions?
I had an oil change about 2 weeks ago. They used 20-50 oil when they replaced it. I had no warning other than a rattling sound up by the fan. The next day after driving about 25 mi the car started smoking. The mechanic said they think it is the water pump.
