I've replaced ABS pump & all sensor to try sort this problem, a mechanic thinks the previous person who replaced the wheel bearing might have damaged where the sensor senses on the wheel hub or replaced it with a non ABS wheel hub, when I brake other 3 wheels continue braking at right pressure but the front right wheel brakes at higher pressure n ends up locking if more force is added on the pedal... The pedal gets electrically locked when this happens n as soon as the speed becomes lower the pedal loosens. I've spent a lot & I'm still having problems that is why I would like to get further info before I replace the bearing with hub as suggested by the mechanic

A few months back we would have trouble getting it into reverse gear. We'd have to put back in park then reverse and most times this fixed the problem. Now we can't get the car to run in any gear. On dash, P R N D all flash on & off. We had AAA tow the car home because the driver told us it was an easy fix, the shift cable has "come loose/apart" and needs to be tightened back up and it will be fine. My husband got the shifter apart but we don't know what to do from here. The AAA driver assured us this was not a transmission problem but of course, didn't tell us how to fix it. Any suggestions???

car has build up of ice in both doors and has caused the front of them to bend and i am not under warranty

The tachometer jumps up and down while sitting still, from 10 to 30.

My 2007 VWGTI goes through a lot of oil-wanted to know why that is.

I have a 2007 gti with 50K. When should I get new timing belt? Car run great!
