  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all. I have an issue with my B5 stumbling between 1500 and 3000 RPM. I have done all the maintenance top to bottom. Was running fine then over the last three days it started to stumble between 1500 and 3000 RPM. In 5th gear it shakes the car like crazy if you're driving slow. NO CEL. I have...
  3. B5 Garage
    I drove from Florida to Kentucky last week and headed back yesterday. About 1000 miles each way. I noticed about 100 miles into my trip home, a horrible noise started within a small, low-end rpm range. It sounds like it's inside the valve cover. I uploaded a small video to YouTube instead of...

    From Car & Driver: 5.2 seconds to 60, and a low 14 second quarter mile?!? :rolleyes: DAYUM! The rest of the truck looks great as well, with a huge step up in the interior department. Class for me (other than the price which is freaking absurd)

    About every Chevy is labled as a 1500. (Unless it's a 2500 etc.) Trucks, Tahoe's, Suburbans... Dodge's are labled 1500, 2500 etc also. What the heck does this mean, I asked 2 salesmen and they had no clue. One said because it's a 1/2 ton payload capacity truck...but sorry 1/2 a ton is not 1500.

    So my friend has a 92 silverado w/ a 5.7L V8 automatic, and he thinks it can stomp my chipped 1.8t tip passat. So what do you think? it's a large truck and i think it's just to darn heavy to come close to a passat. Let me know what you think:thumbup: Ethan

  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a new 1.8T Passat and the dealership suggested changing the oil initially between 1500 and 2000 miles and add Mobil 1. Should I use a dino oil for the first change, allowing engine to break in better, or just start with Mobil 1? I searched for oil filters and got much info. I am...

    Lets hear some opinions, do the 50k oil change now (two days before I leave) or the day after I get back? She's full Castrol Syntec 5w30 with a Napa Gold filter.
