  2. P0441 after replacing EVAP Purge valve

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Had a P0441 code on my 2004 Passat V6. Replaced the purge valve and verified the valve was operating correctly. Can hear it “tapping” away. Any ideas aside from looking into replacing the vapor canister?

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2000 Passat GLS (ATW) with 167k miles. When I first try to start the vehicle it cranks but does not even attempt to turn over as if it's getting no fire or fuel. Sometimes if I wait for a minute it will start. Most of the time I'll have to wait for about an hour and then it will start...

  9. New to Forum after absence - question about bike rack on 2008 Passat

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, Been a while since I've been here. Posting this here as required, but it may actually belong elsewhere. I've got a 2008 Passat that I'm looking to install a hitch and bike rack on. I've looked at bike racks that mount on trunk lids, but really don't like them. So, I'm thinking of...

Love the car but a week ago it started spewing power steering fluid everywhere around the reservoir and we concluded that until we could see where it...

  13. Friend's 1.8T recurring on/off whine sound after WP, TB, Serp, Alternator work

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So my friend has been back and forth with this mechanic (not a VW specialist) like five times, because the problem never seems completely fixed. I don't know much about it, and I'm totally unfamiliar with the 1.8T, other than it also has an accessory belt (unlike my V6). So after all this...

  16. Three return trips to VW service after TDI emissions "fix"

    New Member Introductions
    After considerable thought, I decided to keep my TDI and have VW do their "fix" instead of taking the buyback. After all, I love my 2012 Passat and couldn't find anything I liked better--not even a newer Passat. At least not for what I'm willing to pay;) Problem is, between December 8, 2017...

    B5 Garage
    My wife broke the wiper switch off at the stalk on our 2003 Passat 1.8t. Evidently she was very angry that it was raining. So I went and got a new switch from the junkyard (since its the "multi function" switch with the switch on the side its $250 new or $10 from the junk yard), got the airbag...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Always a puzzle with these cars. I'm driving along, everything was normal up to this point. Hit the left hand turn signal, and it starts blinking at about twice the normal rate - very noticeable. So, when we get to the parking lot, I jump out and confirm that the left turn signal lights (all...
