Happy Monday everyone. Today I will be taking your automotive questions. This is one of my favorite shows to do. I love hearing from all of you and helping out with your issues with your car. Also these don’t have to be VW related questions. Send me questions on tools, being a tech, car repair I will do my best to help you out.

Sponsor of the DayCRP AUTO
CRP deals in a ton of OE automotive parts. They also make the factory DSG fluid for VW. Having them as a sponsor will give us access to more information about fluids than I would ever get from VW. I am really excited to have them as a resource of information. To learn more about the great products they have, check out
