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...?
