Brought it into the dealer, broken water pump. I completely forgot I bought the extended warranty with my car so I'm only on the hook for a $100 deductible, and they got me a rental. Plus they're...

Okay, so I went back out to my car after it sat awhile, and checked the coolant tank, and now there's a little in there. Still well under the min line. That doesn't make sense, since it cooled, isn't...

Haha, nope, it's a beautiful 65 degrees right now.

I have free towing with AAA, so I figure I might as well be safe than sorry.

It's a fucking leak....it went from being low to bone dry in the span of half an hour. Guess I have to have it towed to the dealer tomorrow.

Could it just be low and not actually leaking?

Since I need g12 and dealers are closed on Sunday, can I put some water in there to at least turn the light off?

Low coolant

I just got a warning in my mfd to check my coolant which I did. It's a bit low. Is it safe to drive until I can get to an auto zone or something to buy more? Any special kind I need? My temp gauge is...

Thanks. Guess my two options are to learn to live with it until the next rotation or buy new tires?

Humming sound after tire rotation

I took my car to the dealer yesterday for 50,000 mile service which consisted of an oil change and tire rotation. After that was done, when I get up to around 60 MPH, there's an annoying high pitched...

Thanks, I searched and saw a lot of stuff on the FSI but not TSI.

40,000 mile service?

My 2009 GTI (manual) is coming up on 40,000 miles. The dealer quoted $600 for service, which seems outrageous. I don't have my manual in front of me right now, but I was looking over a list I found...

Nope, no plans to upgrade so I'll go with the K&N. Is it just a drop in replacement that'll take 2 minutes? The FSI looks like a bitch based off the DIY but I think the TSI is easier, correct?
