what happened is that I put the down pipe two inches and a half and when I turned the car on it worked very well then I went to the shop to put direct pipe but it was close so I went home but the car did to much noise so I connected the down pipe to the original pipe so when I turned the car on it starded to fail as misfire so turn it off and I have this code p0223 and will change the pedal and the throttle body but the pedal still dont work so i change the oxygen sensor and the code of accelerator no longer appeared have only accelerator these codes p2128. P2123 but still not working. I hope that you could help me thanks

my car was struck this weekend. i have a 2002 vw gti (automatic) - my car was struck on the front drivers side while parked and is currently at a geico repair center to repair damage. after accident the a/c doesnt work. geico is saying that there is no correlation between accident and broken a/c. anyone know where the a/c components are as i'd like to contest/argue this and have them fix it!

When i put the car in drive it won,t accelerate. it will in reverse,park,neutral,but not in forward gears.

replaced every sensor linked to it,did the 300 mile drive test, and still my light is on. ANY ANSWERS? "PLEASE HELP"

Occurs whenever the engine is cool. Recently had a transmission flush to no avail. Transmission is not throwing any codes. Vag com is saying my rear speed sensor is faulty. I'm unsure if that would cause this issue with the shifting.

The driver side seat heater is not functioning, any thoughts on why?

The check engine light came on this week. I took it to autozone to find out why. The codes point to engine efficiency. Means either vacuum hoses or the CC.

My mechanic thinks the cc is damaged from the 2 ignition coils that failed about 2 years ago.

Is it possible that a failed coil can damage the CC?

Recommended gearbox oil type

My temp. warning light appears as soon as I start my car. I have let car idle for 2 minutes then turned it off. I start car again, & warning light is off.NO PROBLEM, RIGHT ? Wrong !!! The oil & coolant fluids are correct, but after driving for 5 min. The engine is giving off a strong burning smell.Temp is correct, no high reading...WHAT CAN IT BE...?

When I start my car and it goes to 2,000 rpms a high pitch signel goes off and the gauges and dash lights go out. If you are driveind and put on the brakes all the gauges and dish lights come back on. Also the battiery will drain down while the car is not running.
