  1. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I'm at a loss of fixes now. Had problems for pushing a year now and can't get a permanent fix. Cleaned the throttle body, replaced the throttle body, intake was replaced and a few other minor things. Car will work for a few weeks to a few months after a fix and then the same problem occurs...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...

    2001 B5 with tiptronic transmission. I just changed the timing belt (about 200 miles ago) and had the head rebuilt due to timing belt failure on the freeway. It has seemed to run good for the last couple weeks. But I have been driving VERY carefully to break the head in. As I have strated...
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Have been spending a lot of time here searching and searching (and a bit of searching) and have found a few threads with similar issues. Have also been blown away by the knowledge out there and the love for the Passat. The best part for a research junkie like myself has been the insight into...
  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, I've got a 99 1.8T with about 88K on the clock. The past few days the car has been running sporadically. I've been experiencing random dips in RPM's, especially at a stop/idle. It will go from 1000 to 1500 then down to 500, and repeat this cycle a few times in a row. Usually after...

    Sometimes when I accelerate over 35 or more MPHs the car kind of sputters a little and I sometimes hear a mild backfire.The check enging light then flickers . I do not know what the term "missing" means but I would think that my car is "missing" (whatever that means). I have recently (6...

  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Folks; Yesterday, went to pull onto a highway a little more agressively than I should of (cut it close). So, I darted out into traffic expecting my V6 passat to take off, and after stomping on the pedal, it seemed to take longer to respond than I would have liked. Is this a function of the...
  9. Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I just bought my passat v6 1996 glx automatic three weeks ago, with 67k (for 3200 bucks, which I THOUGHT was a great deal). I should've known better, but the guy I bought it from told me he had changed the tranny...
  10. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've got a 2000 Passat 4cyl turbo w/ Tip @80K and I've got a really, really bad problem w/ the accelleration. If I hit the gas I have to hit it slowly for if I do it too fast it sputters. It's reaaaaly touchy. It mostly does it when it's under load and I try to accellerate. I'm between jobs...
