Just wanted to leave place to rant over pothole damage...
Hit a pothole on I-40 Friday going about 60 mph and bent not one but TWO wheels. The hole was over the crest of a hill so I never even saw it, just felt the impact. Went back later and saw it was about 2'x2'x6".
I have a 2000 Jetta GLS 2.0 with about 200,000 miles on it. The check engine light has been on for some time but the car ran fine. I had to fix the CEL issues in order to pass California smog. The main issue is error code P0431. The engine runs very rough, has little power, and seems to be in limp mode.

2001 Jetta 1.8t, have been having a few issues with this little car. The newest one is it wont start, cranks like crazy but no spark or fuel. Fuel pump does not cycle when I turn the key on. I checked the fuses and there is no power into or out of fuse numbers 28, 32, 34, 43. According to the fuse box map these are kinda important fuses lol. Anyway this all started when I unhooked the battery to put a new one in. Any guesses what this could be? Oh and all the fuseible links are good on... [Read More]
