    Starting trouble; CCT or FPR? A week ago, I started getting a CEL with code 16396/P0012, Advance Setpoint Not Reached. This weekend, so far it only seems to be when the engine's warm, but I'm having trouble starting. It's acting like there's not enough fuel, but once the engine finally does...

    I have no idea what this is. I'm recording it from unde the steering wheel to the left near the gas/trunk release switches. It's almost like it's coming from the steering wheel itself. Or maybe from the wheels? The right side is starting to do it too I think? But perhaps it's the glove box. But...

    Short Story: ========= Today, I found that I can replicate paddle stuck as many times as I want while my 2001 FWD B5 Passat (tiptronic) is parked. It is a stock paddle with stock interior setup, including a stock VW floor mat which is hold to its factory position by 2 "buttons" toward the rear...

    Hey guys, I have an 01 b5.5 with Monsoon/Premium 5. When I got the car the battery was dead. I simply replaced it and have not had issues, but... I noticed I can turn on the radio (cd changer and amp) simply by pushing the power button. It turns off automatically when I remove the key... but I...

    Reviving the detailing thread in time for spring! So last fall I did a pretty extensive exterior detail on the car. Clay barred, used a PC w/ lake country yellow pad w/ meguiars ultimate compound, then white pad with megs ult. polish, then topped with Klasse HG Sealant Glaze on a candy white...

    My radio finally gave up the ghost and went completely dead. I ordered a replacement factory radio off of ePay and was just wondering if anyone on here would be able to get the unlock code from the supplied VIN? I know the dealer will do this but I'm guessing my local stealership will charge a...

    Okay, I hope I can explain this easily. I have a 2001.5 (B5.5) Passat 1.8T The car has 181,000 miles but is in excellent condition. I have been to TWO VW dealerships, 1 Audi dealership and I've had a BMW tech look at my car. When the car is rolling 15mph and under there is a clunking/knocking...

    My turbo experiences are limited to an 83 280zx turbo I drove in high school, and a few buses I've owned. All of which had very audible and noticable turbo sounds. I can hardly hear a thing on my 01 b5 Variant (I think thats the name for a wagon). I test drove a 5.5 and could hear the turbo...

    Just want to see how many others with FWD here have an easier time in nasty conditions than some trucks out there. I did a road trip from Philly back here to Lakeville in that last bit of weather we just had; I noticed that many trucks seemed to have problems with the rear end kicking out while...

    Or does it need to be connected to electrical to open? I had gas smells and someone suggested to see if it was clear. I have it out now and can't blow through it. Does that mean it's clogged, or is it just closed?

    I've got a black 2000 passat and I'm looking to upgrade from the 15" vw alloys. I was looking at 18" rs4's but I know that that I would have lower my car about 1.5 inches and that would run my bank account dry so I decided to go for 17" rs4 reps. I know some 17's look fine on stock suspension...

    Hey I'm having a look at these 17s to go on my b5 with stock suspension (for the time being). They're 235/50/17 and I'm thinking they may be too wide for the front, but wouldn't have a problem on the back. But I'm pretty new to upgrading rims/tires. It seems like there's no shortage of knowledge...
