    Hey guys, Finalizing the exhaust work with the flex pipe the other day and I had the front end up on jack stands. I noticed that there was a single tiny drop of red ATF on the cover plate below where the differential sits. I've never noticed ATF leaks on the ground but I did just start driving...

    This has slowly been getting worse since I first noticed it more than 9 months ago. During acceleration, I hear and feel a "thunk" similar to running over a pothole coming from the front wheels. Often it happens on one side then quickly on the other. Usually this happens exactly once until I get...

    Hi all, I am the owner of a 2006 VW Passat B6 3c2 2.0t FSI 147kw I’m having issues when accelerating. If I accelerate very rapidly (ie kick it up past 5000rpm) the car loses power, vibrates and I have to take my foot off the gas for it to return to normal. I get a flashing CEL For about 10...

    99 V6, manual transmission. This issue just started. Hottest day of the year here, 97deg (no idea if related), and the A/C was blasting for the first 30 min of the drive (everything was normal). Then, I started getting hesitation under acceleration, in all gears. No sounds, just momentary...

    Hi all, I'm the owner of a 2000 b5 Passat with the 2.8l v6. Whenever under acceleration, there is a loud whistle sound, akin to rapid blasts of air. I'm not sure exactly where it is coming from, any ideas?

    Hello I just reclently replaced my air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, ICM and a couple air hoses. And still having a problem when accelerating hard. I tested all 4 coil packs with the engine running pulled each one separately and everyone of them made the engine stumble a little. Did the same...

    I'm hearing a 1/2 second "shht" sound at around 2500-3000 rpms in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear when accelerating in my 2002 1.8t Passat stickshift. It almost sounds like some kind of valve or gate moving, like a sliding metallic solenoid actuating. During hard acceleration I don't necessarily hear...

    I am guessing it may be tires but am not sure, of course the boy picks a car out with 19 inch rims, and when we test drove it, did not seem to have a shake when under hard acceleration, but I can not be sure, the salesman, said he had the wheels rotated and oil changed when we picked up the...

    Hello Team, I have Passat V6 2.8L giving me some strange issues. The car starts fine but when shift it suddenly jumps and rpm goes high and low (unstable). Usually I switch off and switch back on, it becomes stable and runs ok. Then at some point when idle, it won't accelerate no matter how...

    Hello, I bought a 2002 1.8T Passat with the AMB engine and auto trans about two weeks ago and just to start, I bought the car knowing it was going to be a project. The car runs and drives perfectly as it should but the acceleration from a stop is just plain awful. It's not turbo lag as I have...

    So my old faithfull passat has all of a sudden started to running really bad. It idles OK and in lower gears but if i try to accelerate in 4th or 5th gear going 50-60 it almost dies on me. Bought a cheap cable and invested in VCDS lite but there's NO error codes apart from a faulty heated...

    Well some of you I'm sure has helped me with my form for the rattle in my car. Well now I'm having another problem. The problem is everytime I start my car it will misfire for about 10 to 15 seconds and then it will stop but when I try to accelerate it will sputter real bad and has little to no...

    My 99 Passat 1.8T AT has very weak acceleration. It feels like a 60's car with leaky plug wires. Perfect when running steady state, but under load it kind of stumbles. The turbo kick in just fine, the problem is the engine stumbles trying to accelerate. I already tried the following; 1...

    If anyone could help me with this problem I'm having with my passat that would be awesome. The problem is when I am accelerating mostly going up hill I will get this metallic rattling noise. I thought the camper chain tensioner was the culprit so I replaced alongs with new gasket but I'm still...

    Hello everyone! I have a problem with my acceleration pedal for a few months now. When I accelerate ( about 1500 to 2000 rpm) It suddenly stops just like I would take my feet of. If I press it till the end it slowly starts to accelerate ( About 5sec till it works normal) and if I release it and...

    I've noticed recently that my Passat has a "hissing" noise when I accelerate. I've had the car about a year now, and this only started recently. Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/arthurlockman/car-noise You can hear in the clip that whenever I accelerate, there's a hissing sound overlaid on...

    Hi there my buddy just bought a 98 Passat 1.8t 5 speed with 235k on it, bought cheap cause turbo might be blown the issue is the car doesn't accelerate when you put the gas all the way down rather it just slowly increases? Personally I think it's the timing but has anybody had this problem.
