  3. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Today I started up my 2013 Passat SEL up and it started shaking and idling very strange. A few seconds later I had a flashing CEL so I decided to turn her off. I waited about 5 minutes (after cursing for about 4.5 if those minutes) and tried again. This time the car started and everything was...

    Had a cam follower replaced today as part of the car's final service before warranty runs out. This was strictly preventative maintenance....I thought I would have the dealer do the change, to let them discover a damaged camshaft or HPFP. As far as I know, this is the original part. But we...

    I bought my car on a Drivers Option and decided to keep it for the long haul instead of trading/turning it in. So, I'm wondering what to expect as I eclipse the 50k mark? I've already flushed the coolant, swapped the plugs, and replaced the rear brakes. What should I expect over the next 50k? I...

    well not really. I visited Stefan's (GMWB5) shop the other day, and I spotted an '01 benz sitting with an engine ready for a swap. Reason, no oil change in the last 50k + miles just look at the picture (sorry for bad quality)

    How can this possibly be normal. My dealer tells me these 1.8 motors have this fairly common. I've had an oil leak for a month now and after changing out every seal/gasket on the bottom side of the motor, they finally realized that a small seepage of oil is coming from the back corner of my...

    Just got back from the 50k oil change at the (gasp) dealer. Yah yah, they're close and pretty cheap. Anyway, they said the serpentine belt on my '02 V6 4mo is worn and needs to be replaced. They want $220 -- hah hah -- anyway... I got home and popped the hood. Now, I'm no VW technician, but my...

    I think now that I've been here for a while it's time to post up some pics. I've been counting down to the 50k mile mark for close to a month now. I then realised I've never posted a whole pic of my car, only shots of the dirt it seems to collect Show us your DIRTY Passats!, the scratches the...
