  2. Another day, another engine code to fix

    New Member Introductions
    Much like the '04 e46 BMW, seems like it's always another day, another part. O2 sensors, MAF sensors, cam chain tensioner sensor, lean turbo, lean cylinder or lean bank :rolleyes:
  3. Yep another new Passat owner

    New Member Introductions
    I just bought a 2003 GLS with the 1.8T and 5 speed manual transmission. It starts but runs really rough, so I'll for sure be trying to pick peoples brains in the other forums. This isn't my first rodeo though being that I've owned a few Audi's, a 2002 A4 and a 2003 A6. So luckily I have a...

    B5 Garage
    Hey guys, This is my first "real" post. I've been scouring the forums for weeks now trying to get educated, mostly on the infamous Passat ABS problem(s). I have learned a lot - thanks for making this great resource available! A few weeks ago, I bought a 2002 GLX 2.8 V6 ATQ A/T. Been working...
  5. Car goes haywire whenever I jump start another car?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2001 VW PASSAT V6. I had to jump start my dads van the other day. So I did it how I always do it left the engine running and hooked up positive to positive and negative to negative. A few minutes after disconnecting the cables I get a check engine light and a flurry of warning messages...
  6. Another One Down

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My daughter was driving the 99 tonight to her brother's apartment. I had just put the new tires on the front this evening, and last week I did a complete brake job including rear calipers--about $500 and a bit of my time. All this was to get the car to pass NYSI. Well, something happened...

  8. And yet another coolant leak

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, last week the heat quit working. Then she dumped all the coolant down my driveway. I filled it back up. Put it on jack stands and started it up. Nothing happened for a few minutes. I’m guessing once the thermostat opened a when it started pouring out. It was coming out around the passenger...

    B5 Garage
    Hey guys! Car in question is a 97 passat b5 1.8T avant Been researching this problem for a while now and I am at the end of my rope. I had the passenger side airbag deploy when driving down a curb at low speeds (car had 2-300kg extra weight from moving stuff though) I decided it would be...
  14. Transplant from another forum

    New Member Introductions
    LOL - Hi folks, Just wanted to say hi, I am a relatively new Passat owner (2017 Passat SEL Premium 1.8T - Reef Blue), but not new to VW. Had several VAG products including a Beetle TDI (going back) and Audi A6 as well as older ones back in the 80's. I am a member of VWVortex and TDI forums...

    B5 Garage
    I think I know what is going on here, but wanted to double check here with the experts... My 01 A4 B5 started putting on the ABS light and flashing the brake light whenever it is driven. Brakes work fine, brake fluid level is good. When I pull the codes I get something like: 18014 ABS...
  17. Yet another B5.5 Auto/5M Trans Swap Thread

    New Member Introductions
    I scoured the forums as best as the slightly clunky search function here would allow, and didn't really find an answer. It seems most people have an auto Passat and scrounge the 5m parts from here and there, and need to know what they actually need. The responses range from "For God's sake...

    HI, After searching for B6 A4 and B5.5 passat FMIC compatibility I couldn't find much.. So, long story short, looking for cheap yet decent ebay FMIC for B5.5 Passat 1.8T 5Spd. Best option I could find for the money was this kit for an B6 A4 (looks like it has the MAP sensor sensor and extra...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Picked up a 2008 Passat 2.0t fsi with 166k miles. It has been neglected for some time and I am trying to get it roadworthy again. Here's what I've done so far: 1) Replaced the HPFP and cam follower. The cam follower in the car was completely worn though and spring was floating in the cam...
