  4. AEB Cylinder 3, No Spark

    B5 Garage
    The '99 1.8T has a misfire (no spark condition) on cylinder 3 - third one back from the timing belt cover. The #3 coil pack is good as the misfire doesn't move when this CP is tested on other cylinders. Guess I'll check the wiring to CP #3 before swapping the Ignition Control Unit. Though...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, Can anyone tell me what this loud knocking or ticking noise is in the video? I suspect its coming from just above the oil cap... lifter? broken spring? bad gas? I've tried searching...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had the parts sitting here for quite some time and finally just got under the hood and wired it all in.
