just simply replaced the back break pads and went to test drive after completed and they stopped but very soft and would push all the way to the floor. tried bleeding but still soft. any help?

1998 Jetta- started hearing a clicking noise by the stearing column then things started going on and off. First the fan would only work occasionaly, then it went completely out as did the cruise control and the low beam lights. Funny thing, the fan comes on when the high beams are on. So we are thinking it is a relay switch, but can't figure out which one is bad. We tried replacing the #18 but that wasn't it. We haven't been able to find a diagram showing which functions are controlled by each of the relays.

2003 vw jetta 1.8 turbo; when accelerating up steep grades massive amounts of white smoke come from the exhaust (sometimes when it happens, I cannot even see the car behind me) but goes away when I stop accelerating. This is very embarrassing. Very rarely does this happen during normal driving. My mechanic has not been able to identify the problem. Any thoughts?

There are no diagnostic codes. I just had the front axels replaced, Air filter, one ignition coil, spark plugs, fuel filter (A complete tune up). My car vibrates when I put it in gear. Nothing was wrong before, until they changed all those things.

MFA indicator(mpg,outside temp)does not light this a standard feature or an option.i bought this car one week ago

I have a 2008 Jetta. Last year the A/C was giving me some issues but now is worst than last year. In winter, it would only get hot when it was as hot as you could make it. Now in summer it only gets cool when it is on the coolest setting. Sometimes it kicks in, but usually takes awhile to get cold. It kicks in faster when it is mild in temperature and/or cloudy. I tried having it charged, but only worked briefly. What kind of problem is this? Before I spend a $150 for the dealer to look at it, I want to know what I am getting myself into. Thanks!!

How many Litres of Transmission fluid do I need?

Car was driven to work and parked with no issues or warning signs that anything might be wrong. Leaving work, engine turned over, sputtered for 15-20 seconds, shut off, and would not re-start. Towed to a repair shop and was advised the timing belt needed to be replaced. Total quote for timing belt, water pump and thermostat came to $1,150. I'm told there could also be damage to the valves, but the shop won't know until the timing belt has been replaced. Assuming one or more of the valves has been damaged, how much additional can/should I expect to pay for this repair?

need to remove condenser and as much of the system as possible
