Question about Cars & Trucks
How much would it cost to fix paint chips in a 2002 vw Passat? It is green, and the car was parked in Boston, so it's the "I don't know how to parallel park/I don't care if I hit your car as long as I can get in a spot" type of chip...and there are several.
If it is only your bumper that needs paint, no other body work, I looked it up here in Canada, and the body shop book says 5 hours labor, paint, reducers, wax and grease removers, and tack clothes.Here, or body shops charge $75 per hour, so my best guess would be about $500. Hope this is helpful, but I'm sure your labor costs would probably be more in or near Boston. Nice place to visit , but I wouldn't want to park there. I drive a transport truck and hauled many long beams to Boston for '' The Big Dig'' Fisrt time there and last time there, EVER Hope this helps you out, Cheers from Nova Scotia!!

Pricing for the replacement will vary widely based on who does the work, but you'll typically find better prices at an independent shop than at a dealership. When you choose an indie shop though, make SURE they're a Euro specialist. You honestly don't want a guy working on your high-tech turbo engine when he spends his days wrenching on Mustangs and Chevy trucks. As for whether you have to do it - yes you do. The turbo is an integral part of the car and the car won't run well at all (and will likely degrade further) if you don't fix it.

You have to get CV Boots replaced, this happens because they split. What happen was something got stuck inside the axel where the little boots is held on and split that little piece of rubber (its easy to do). As a result, fluid leaks and and spashes on the back tires so you never know it happens. When you make turns the car will make a clicking noise. You can add fluid but, it will continue to leak out if those boots are split so, you have to replace the boots. I had to replace the boots and axel because the boots come on the axel. Its an expensive project. Boots, axel and labor $500 starting if you go through the dealer. Also, if you have an extended warranty they won't cover it because there is no time frame when these boots split it just something that can happen. Honestly, they know this is something common especially if you drive through snow.

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.
The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.
Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.
You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.
The head gasket is another story.
Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.
Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.
Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.
If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.
If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve
If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.
If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.
