SOURCE: Air Conditioner Drain Clogging Up

You will need to pull the evaporator box out of the car and remove what ever is in there at the drain tube clogging it up. It could be bunch of pine needles or it could be mouse nest stuff in there causing the clogg. You will not know until you take it out. Or instaed of taking it apart, blow compressed air into the drain here and there to keep it open. But that's no garantee way of doing this. Take it apart would be the right way. You could install some kind of a screen on the car air intake which is below the wiper cowling, to prevent mouse from getting into the air duct system and I would also check inside the blower motor housing for any debriss inside of there. So good amount of work if you want to get this done right. Good luck.

SOURCE: I need to find the ecu relay for an 86 Nissan 300zx.

The ecu is probably under the passenger seat. The battery also has a fusible link which may be blown. Also follow the battery wiring to the regulator box. This may also be faulty

SOURCE: 1.6 fsi passat,pinging

pinging may not be the result of the type of fuel, but sometimes in the combustion chanber, carbon can build up and act as an insulator, so when the vehicle warms up, the carbon deposit retains the heat and ignites the fresh air fuel mixture before the spark plug is supposed to ignite it. check your spark plugs and if you have a scope try and look into the chamber (when the piston is all the way down of course). You can buy engine decarbonizers, but the cheapest one is water (free). you can't add a lot, just use a vaccum line to **** up a tiny bit of water at a time, also make sure the egine is running above idle

SOURCE: 2003 passat starts,but "airbag fault"

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

To resolve the water leak, the weather strip on the rear should be replaced. The weather strip is the rubber that secures the interior from water. Regarding the airbag fault, as a first course of action please remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. then reconnect it again to reset the system and the airbag fault can be resolve.

If it doesn't help then the problem will rely on the airbag maintenance. Please see dealership to have the car diagnosed to see the fault and fix.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: Audi A3 2.0 fsi 2004 will not start

Sounds like you have a weak battery. It doesn't take much power to make all the lights work but you need a lot of current to start the engine. You can test the battery by looking at voltage across the terminals when you try to start the car, if it's less than 12 volts your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is more than 5 years old it should be replaced anyway. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

My FSI passat has a mixture of oil and water in the water can, what is the problem


Usually a cracked block will cause the oil and water to mix. This is a major problem. You'll be looking at some major expense or possibly purchasing a different vehicle.

Why has my car blown two ECU's each lasting only 1100-1200 miles?


I feel your pain never use a junk yard electronic part most collect moisture from doors left open or damaged from an accident. Get a remanufactured one from a good parts store have it flashed and install it yourself just remove hold down clamps and unplug the unit and install the new one insuring a good clean ground. Be careful when charging your battery to remove the cables so you won't fry the computer. It's easy to fry the computer by welding on the exhaust without unhooking the battery cables or even charging the battery with the cables on. Hope this helps been there done this.

I have replaced all control modules and my 99 passat wont go in reverse any suggestions. I was told I need a new transmission.


Hi, you didn't mention if you have auto or manual. If it is manual then there no doubt that it is the transmission problem because the linkage is binding up which may require a new transmission as suggested because of the cost of fixing it and probability of it working after fixing it..
If it is automatic, it could possibly be the computer (ECU) which can only be checked by a transmission specialist on both account and if it's not the ECU, then you can start thinking about a new transmission...

VW Passat estate 99 T reg. From start up continual misfire and lack of power until engine is warm. Once warm fault becomes intermittent. There are no warning light on dash. I have replaced HT leads with no...


There may be no check engine light but that doesn't mean there isn't a code in the ECU. Especially with a misfire. I'd have the codes scanned and see what you got. The cannister issue isn't going to give you a misfire it will give you stalling and rough idle.
Lets see what ECU is saying. You can go to Autozone if you don't have a scanner they will scan it for free. If scanning turns out negative than have a cylinder leakage test done. This way we can determine which cylinder has the problem and what the problem is.

This morning it was very difficult to start my 03 Passat


VAG suffer greatly with a signal failure to ECU that brings the choke on when cold. Your fault is text book of this.

Follow the top radiator hose to where it meet the engine, at that point you will see a sensor, it has 4 wires and is held in by a horseshoe clip. This is the water coolant sensor, replace it and you'll be happy again :o)
