water pump

  1. Drivers Lounge
    This isn't a technical question but more of a weird story and request for advice about dealing with VW USA. My 2013 TDI (~53,250 miles) has had a small coolant leak now for about a year. With COVID we haven't been driving it much at all but on May 10th I took back to the VW dealer in Santa...

    2011 Touareg 3.6 VR6 (US): Hi all, I’m having intermittent overheating issues with my Touareg. After I bought the car, it would start overheating on the highway after about 15 minutes of driving. I would then pull over and idle for a minute or so, causing the temperature to go back to 200°...

    I have done my best to search clubtouareg, vwvortex, and google and have come up short on finding much on the newer models with regard to overheating. Created an account to post this question. Thanks for any help you can offer. Model: 2012 Touareg Lux V6 3.6L 80k miles Issue Description...

    Glad it's over with and it wasn't due to failure by any part. I just got tired of worrying about it because I bought the reg used with 68,000 miles on it and it's a 2006 V8. I've owned it for two years and it's almost hitting 10 years. The previous owner bought it at 39k miles and took really...

    I bought a timing belt and water pump kit with tensioner and pulleys, gaskets, and all the fixings off of Rock Auto. It is the Gates kit and has the premium belt with it. I am just looking to get rid of it for what I had into it which is about $240 with shipping. This is a good solid kit, I just...

    Hi - this is my first post to the forum for my 2009 V6 TDI purchased from new with 112,000 miles that I am now servicing. I've replaced the water pump and want to fit a new serpentine belt while I'm in there. Seems there are two sensors and their wiring inside the loop of the belt (thanks VW!)...

    Well, I finally took on the challenge of doing my own timing belt. I bought my treg two years ago with 50k on it. Today it has 79990 and so I knew it was time for a belt. Actually, I was kind of stressing out because of the age of the belt. I know there is some debate on this site as to whether...

    My 2006 V10 in at the dealership on extended 3rd party warranty to replace the water pump and fuel pump, vacuum lines and a few other things. While the engine is out, I have the opportunity to replace a few other things proactively on my own dime. What do you suggest? I recall hearing...

    Went to the dealer for completely unrelated issue. They called and said tensioner pulley was going bad, too much play in the timing belt. They said the belt should be able to twist only 45 degrees (on drivers side, cover removed) and that mine is much more. It does twist to almost 90 degrees. It...

    My wife's Touareg is rolling up on 80k miles and I'm starting to think about the dreaded timing belt/water pump service. I have looked over all the threads I could find related to this issue, but there is little information for a DIY job. Does anyone have any experience with this service? I...
