    I've owned a 2003 Passat 2.8L and have been very happy with it. I was looking to buy an exact replacement (color, options, etc.) and have found one, except that it's a 1.8L. Does anyone have any advice on the differences between the 1.8L and 2.8L in terms of reliability , serviceability, or...

    Recently I was handed down a Passat. Shes got 267k highway miles and was loud asf when i started her up. Other than obvious exhaust problems (flex pipe) I was told my power steering pump could have a hand in making so much noise. I drove her about 5hrs for school without incident except for some...

    What are the oil pressure specifications for a 1999 Passat with engine code APT (1.8L, non-turbo)? I'm asking this because I'm suspecting I have a clogged oil pickup screen. Sorry in advance if these specs are already here somewhere, but I just can't seem to find them for the 1.8L APT-engine.

    Ok so this may sound picky, but the analog clock in my new Passat seems to have a mind of its own. At times it will be anywhere from a couple of minutes to as much as 45 minutes off from the digital clock in the instrument cluster. I know I can turn on the radio clock as well and that three...

    All, I've been lurking in the forums for a while now, and since I have more things broken on my Passat than working, I figured it is time to join. The car filled up with water while I was deployed (Navy), so when I got back I had a nice mold issue. I'm sure that is what customized...

    Is there no control module at all on a 2001 Passat 1.8L? I went to Autozone to buy a new module because cylinder 3 is misfiring even after buying a new coil pack and they said the control modules were only for the 1998-1999 1.8L models.

    ****Anyone with a VAGcom I would really appreciate help**** I picked up a Passat from my roommate who said the car was running fine before he parked it this fall, for my cousin who really needs a car. Well it ran like garbage once I charge the battery. And the the brake stop indicator and...

    Hey guys, New to these forums but I've been on Vortex and TDIclub for a while. I came here seeking specifics about the 1.8L Passat as I'm looking at a used 2004 for my wife with auto transmission. I've come across a lot of valuable info looking through older posts re: the sludge issue and...
