  1. 17" wheels without lowering

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just so you have something to compare it to, here's mine on stock 16" Road Americas.
  2. Help finding replacement headlights

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    For low beams you could upgrade to any of the HID kits on ebay for about $30, they're essentially all the same. For the best lighting stay between 4300K and 5000K. The best high beams would be something like SilverStar Ultras or an equivalent.
  3. Which One on Waggie

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Wheels and style are a personal choice and opinions based on someone else's taste are just that. Regardless of the number of views you have, are you buying these wheels because someone else likes them? If you want more comments, post up a photo of your girlfriend and ask for comments...

    I believe the AHA and ATQ heads are interchangeable.

  6. Tiptronic upshift problems in Auto mode

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had this happen to me (03 GLS V6 Tip 120K) about a year ago when the wife said something was wrong and it was doing the same as you described. I took it for a drive an sure enough it was revving high between shifts, I feathered it and it seemed to go back to normal and I haven't had the...
  7. Look at what my crazy EX GF did to my VW's :(

    Lucky she didn't get into the house, check this out:
  8. Oil pressure "Stop Engine" light came on today.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My thoughts exactly. It's certainly possible for the sender to go out which can be confirmed with a mechanical gauge test. Not knowing the history I would be on sludge alert and drop the pan so I knew for sure what I was facing.

    I hope your towing the car or they are doing it in your garage. Dealer or private sale? Maybe someone will chip in for at least a portion of the work.
  10. Oil pressure "Stop Engine" light came on today.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Don't worry about your knowledge on these cars too much, there's plenty of experienced people her to enlighten you. The Passat you have has a 1.8 motor and has been known for sludge problems. I have only had the V6s so I have little to offer for real life knowledge. The only things you could do...
  11. Oil pressure "Stop Engine" light came on today.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just because there was no CEL means nothing and you were given questionable advice and sense of security by whoever you spoke to at the dealer. Without seeing the car, it could very well have the classic "Sludge" issue. Do some reading on the site and familiarize yourself with the term and it's...
  12. Exhaust diameter?!?!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Have the local shop order it for you and then you have no worries. Everybody's got to eat.

  14. HID Problems Again....

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    B5.5Wagon, if you are using the relay harness the stock headlight wiring is out of the circuit and it only supplies power to switch the relay on, nothing more. Your wiring from the relay to the battery has a bad connection, a spot in it that is too light to carry the amperage, your relay is bad...
  15. HID Problems Again....

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    HIDs will actually get a higher voltage after the car is started (13.5v+/-) then before (12.5v+/-), so turning them on before you start the car makes no sense to me. There is a pretty high amperage demand when they are first fired and then settle down to about 4.5amps for each ballast/light. My...
  16. Dealership service records not available prior to 2007

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Sounds pretty normal that service records would be archived after 5 years. Just curious as to why you would need records from 12 years ago?
  17. Driver's side transmission mount. What the Hell

    B5 Garage
    You only need to jack it up high enough to slide the mount pad out, a couple of inches. Here's a pictorial:
  18. Wtb: Ecu

    WTB/WTT Section
    I have a good one left over from my engine swap but not that number, what is it for? Mine came out of my 03 B5.5 V6. UPDATE: I looked it up and it appears you have the 4 banger and mine won't work, sorry.
  19. 02 2.8 V6 Random Multiple Misfires?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    There could be anything wrong with the motor from the obvious coils/wires to bad valves. If a dealer is selling this without fixing it there could be bigger problems. If it's only $500-$700 to fix the car, have them do it and call you when it's done. Is the CEL light on? Before I bought the car...
  20. Just when you thought you'd seen it all....
