    HVAC companies are becoming near scammers rant

    Yep, I hate them. There's a company called, "Rodenheiser" here in Massachusetts and it's a big scam. They put a lot of money into marketing so people feel like they are a decent company to go with but every time...the solution is..."Replace the entire HVAC system". My response, "Oh, ok, bye"...

    Brake Pad Wear Light on ***Need assistance diagnosing issue***

    I have a brake pad wear warning on but all of the pads have plenty of life left since I just changed them last year. I took a look at the brake pad sensor (from the brake pad) and then the harness (from the vehicle) and it looks like the connection is poor...the harness looks like it's damaged...

    Sunroof issues

    Yes, I actually found a little plastic piece that somehow got in the rails and was causing the sunroof not to close. I did take the time to clean the rails and also grease it. Working perfectly now.

    Sunroof issues

    I'm having the same issue I had last year with my sunroof where it would get to 80% close but then stop and open again. I cleaned the rails and luckily it closed. I was too scared to open the sunroof during this past winter so I waited until this spring to try it again and it was working up...

    Poor mileage

    I had the same problem and then realized I loved hearing my CAI hiss so I just jam my foot down on the pedal and shift like a mad man.

    Sunroof won't close on its own. How to manually close?

    I was about to punch a hole through my wall because of this sunroof not closing issue but I cleaned the track like you did and applied some garage door opener lubricant (that's all I had) and turned the knob 1/4 close, open, 1/2 close, open, 3/4 close, open, 1/2 close, open, 3/4 close, open...

    (2010 Gti) P2196 and P2096 o2 sensor too rich / too lean

    Could be a bad MAF sensor. I think I had the P2096 when my MAF sensor went bad or needed cleaning. You can buy one of those MAF cleaner sprays for a cheap possible solution.

    do I need a new turbo? Code P0299

    So that included the diagnosis, parts (new or used turbo?) and installation correct? I am wondering how tough of an install this is and if I could do this on my own with the help of my father who is very mechanically savvy. I'll have to do some youtubing.

    do I need a new turbo? Code P0299

    I have the same code but have not taken any steps yet to resolve. The car feels fine in normal driving and I have not found any posts or articles that state that you have to replace the turbo right away. Does anyone know if this causes a long term issue to the engine overall if we do not replace...

    Recommended Boston Area VW Repair Shops

    I definitely don't want to spend more than a couple thousand so if they came back stating something over $2,000, I probably would not move forward right now. Thanks again for the recommendation. I will give them a call.

    Recommended Boston Area VW Repair Shops

    Thanks @tdream1 Can you tell me what you utilized them for? Any idea how much it would cost to diagnose the problem and then replace a turbo? Trying to determine if I even want to move forward with fixing it or to just live with it. I am guessing $2-3,000 for a new turbo and then the cost of...
