In a 2006 Toyota Corolla S. What is the Filter(?) box with the tubes coming out connecting to the main smog system near the left rear tire?

The "Filter Box" that you are referring to on this vehicle in that location would be the emissions system EVAP canister "aka...the charcoal canister" it takes vapors from the fuel tank and stores them in the activated "charcoal" to be used at at later time during engine combustion.

Hope this helps..

Vacum Line Diagram for a 1974 Volkswagon Beetle.

These had few vac' lines . There is one from the carb' to the distributor and it was originally a steel line with rubber hosed ends and looped above carb' to stop fuel running into distributor vacuum canister.

On other models there was one for emission charcoal canister under rear fender and another from under carb on intake to clutch servo to operate the semi automatic transmission clutch..

EFI equipped engines are another story however and you will need a schematic ...... try this is a VW community with many posters who can help further.

Also late cars had lines running to gas tank as part of the charcoal canister system.

Having problems starting my 99 passat after I fill it with fuel. Once full, it takes 3 or 4 minutes of cranking before it fires. Only happens after i fill it. Runs perfectly at all other times. What...

Don't crank for 3 minutes, or you will burn up the starter.

The problem is probably the purge valve, which is supposed to prevent there from being a vacuum in the tank.
A strong vacuum builds up much faster when the tank is full.
Try opening the gas cap slightly. If you hear a whoosh, your purge valve is not working.
You can open it to air right after the charcoal canister, and then plug the end going to the engine intake.

If you want to be more sure what is happening, I suggest getting a fuel pressure gauge and connecting to the fuel rail port after unscrewing it. I believe fuel pressure should immediately go to around 40 psi or something like that. If it doesn't, or if it goes up when the gas cap removed, then you know it is a vacuum problem. Although a weak pump would be amplified by it, and a new pump might be able to over come the vacuum.

How do you turn off the immobilizer on a Volkswagon Passat and remove the wrong key that was used?

Just happened to me in a 2006 VW Passat 2.0T - Automatic. You simply need to depress the brake and then press the button on the shift lever 3 times. You will then hear the key being released and you can pull it out.

Starts then, stops. After five or six times, starts.

I think the dealer installed another bad fuel pump.
