    Bought a used 2005 Passat V6 with 78k miles on it. Very very poorly maintained and needs a paint job but I think it has a lot of life left in it. Really bad mechanics have been at this car based on the number of missing and broken screws just getting it into radiator service position. Anyway, I...

    (For some reason I am not authorized to post in the "Classified" forum so here it is...) I have gotten rid of my friendly Passat. I'm going through a bit of grief. But anyway, I have about 1/2 gallon of G12 and 1/2 pint of power steering fluid I won't be needing anymore. If anyone wants to...

    My car doesn't overheat but when I shut it off the antifreeze is boiling? Both fans run when the car is on so I know it's not a fan issue? I was told the water pump was replaced as well as the timing belt? Any ideas? :hmmm::hmmm::hmmm:

    I noticed that antifreeze in tank is very dirty, brownish particles swim inside tank and it looks really very dirty inside. What is good way to drain not to damage anything and usually how many liters of antifreeze you add? Car is 1.8T GLS 2001 VW passat. By the way what is best antifreeze...

    Greetings everyone! This morning my wife accidentally pour some (1/4 cup) anti-freeze in the brake fluid reservoir. I was quoted 80.00 by the mechanic, was wondering is that a fair price. I am looking at the right up and it seemed straight forward: taligentx.com: Passat - Brake & Clutch Fluid...

    Hello, B5, 1.8T, 98, SW I replaced some hoses in the coolant system and refilled with G12, paying attention not to leave air in the system. Somehow heater is blowing lukewarm air as opposed to furnace hot before the repair. I suspect air is trapped in the heater core or somewhere else. How...

    I am losing antifreeze a little at a time but it is driving me crazy. 3 garages and they say they can't find anything.... It has to be going somewhere. I am fairly new to water cooled VW's and do not know much about the engines yet. Does anyone have any sugestions??? I have a 1999 V6 No oil...

    The 01 Passat V6 I just acquired has a few issues, one of them being the antifreeze. The PO was told by some fast oil change place that he had oil and antifreeze mixing and needed a head gasket (part of the reason why he sold the car, no doubt). However I don't see any signs of antifreeze...

    Hi guys, i just serviced my b5 and when i took the oil filter out i cleaned a bit of pink 'sweat' that was around the two antifreeze hoses above the filter. The car does not need constant top up of antifreeze, it will go a bit close to the min mark every couple of months or so. I noticed now...

    I recently purchased a '01.5 1.8T where someone mixed Green/G12 coolants, creating a lot of gel in the expansion tank. I am presuming the rest of the system has similar issues. It is not an oil cooler failure. Is there a way to make the gel soluble in water other than drain the system, fill...

    I have a 2000 V6 passat with 175k. Several times a week I have to put a cup or so of antifreeze in it. It gets vented out the cap once in a while when the car is shut off. I have checked the temp of the car and it is not running hot. I have checked that the fans work properly and they do, I...
