it moves freely, just moved car out of garage and then moved to center of driveway to check out my tires 4 air and went to put car in drive and it feels like the transmission linkage is missing
how do we remove the front windsheild side molding, so we can replace the windshield? Even the glass shops can't figure it out.
was in winter/snow weather over wkend. when i went to drive car, oil light started flashing after i drove less than a mile, now when i add oil, it comes out immediately and leaks out onto ground... help! what should we check first?
At first, out of nowhere my car would crank but wouldn't turn all the way over. After so long of trying though it would start. Thought it might be a fuel filter; so I topped my gas tank, put fuel injector cleaner in it and thought it was fine after it ran 2 days no problem.
Nope. I have the new fuel filter, but before I replaced it, problem got worse.
Now it will not crank at all, and none of the dash lights come on when I turn my key, but the radio and the clock will still come on.
Keep in mind, after I mess with it for so long, sometimes it will start. Once it starts its running fine, it has yet to die while in use. The problem is getting it to start.
Any information is greatly appreciated.

Tanks for your help
I am working a 2001 V.W. Cabrio and we stuck a new battery in but now it is not starting when I turn the Key. At first I thought it was just the battery but now I'm wondering if it is also the starter, spark plug, distributor cap or the Key ignition or if it could also be a cross wiring of the spark plug wires. Has any one ever had this kind of problem that can help me on this if so please let me know what u found out from your experiences?
