  1. Passat B5 2000 crank no start

    Fuel pump was a dud. So After finding out the fuel pump had died I tested compression and all cylinders came around 170PSI which was fine, so I got a second hand fuel pump and tested it which showed that the pump worked. So I put everything back together as I was stripping the car for parts...

    Well this is interesting as when I tried to get the petrol out, I disconnected the starter and removed the fuel hoses from the rail and placed them in the fuel can and tried to start the car to get the fuel out and nothing, fuel pump did not work. I then connected cables from spare battery on...

    Well it was not the speed sensor and after putting new one in tried to start it, something went bang and lots of smoke came from the engine. It was her time to go, 260,000 miles on the clock. I will do a quick autopsy and see what's caused it but I already got another car now. I'll keep you...

    Yes i replaced it with an OEM Bosch one but tbh I have had bad experiences with OEM parts on VW. And actually most after market Chinese parts have outlived their OEM counterparts on the passat. I shall do testing on the cables and get a replacement part as I found one on ebay for £12 hopefully...
  5. Passat B5 2000 crank no start

    So I installed the new cam sensor and it did not solve the issue but scanning the car before I found this code: Now the interesting thing is about 2 years ago I had this exact issue of car cranking and not starting and it turned out to the crank/speed sensor. So I replaced it back then and...

    [Update] Yes using 12V was a bad idea the sensor does indeed take 5V from the ECU. I plugged the sensor into the car and used a needle to probe the output(middle) pin and using multimeter negative on the ground on the engine while positive on the needle it showed 0.02V when nothing around and...

    Cchief that's a good point, I shall test with sensor plugged in to the ecu and just back-probe output pin, that should be a more accurate test.

    OK my readings: + and - = 8.88 + and centre = 13.24 Centre and = 0 [EDIT] I did another test, I connected cable from battery + to sensor + pin and cable from battery - to sensor - pin and had multimeter -cable on the battery - and multimeter + cable on the centre pin and moved metal objects...

    Cranking for that long can be bad can't it? I mean it could cause a bore wash plus battery wouldn't appreciate that
  10. Passat B5 2000 crank no start

    Thanks for replies guys. MAF unplugged didn't help. I also checked for spark and it all seemed fine, nice bright spark. While checking that I could smell the fuel coming from the cylinders so I assume fuel is good too. I am fearing low compression or CCT being loose and skipping the chain :(...

    Hello everyone, My Passat (2.3L V5 automatic 2000) is acting up again and does not want to start. It cranks fine but will not start. Few weeks ago scanning the engine I got the following: But the car would start fine just sometimes had issues and would runn like a dog for a bit and then go...
  12. Passat B5 hard time starting when hot

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    hmmm I see, I am actually having some issues with coolant leak I would if that would cause the coolant temp sensor to see some off values.
  13. Passat B5 hard time starting when hot

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, Having some issues with my Passat (2000 V5 2.3L) as it does not really want to start when hot. No problem starting when cold but once the car warms up it can take up to 4 attempts to start it. Recently I have replaced the crankshaft sensor so that can be ruled out. VCDS does not...
  14. Passat B5 2000 Cranks but won't start + no spark

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just to let you know guys it was the crankshaft sensor at fault. After replacing it with a new one (it was not easy!!!) the car starts :D

    Now that you mention it sometimes when the car is hot it would have issue starting right away.
