    Ok guys, I just did the seafoam thing and changed out the oil. I do have suction at the oil cap, still a tiny leak, but here's the kicker; oil leaks out a LOT faster when the oil cap is off. What does that mean??? with it on I'm getting one drip about every 5 seconds, with it off it flows...

    It might be time for some community think. I'm open to suggestion. 2003 B5.5 Passat GLX FWD wagon, ATQ motor, Tiptronic 01V automatic with 339000 miles, never had the heads off, original owner, all stock, all original, no mods. Darn nice body, no rust, minimal dings, decent paint. It's been a...

    Hey all, I'm a long time lurker but given that searching yielded nothing that seemed to mirror my issue, I'm no a noob poster. The Story: I have been having an issue with the oil dummy light coming on intermittently and rarely for about 6 months at this point. As a consequence of the first...

    Help, I am pulling my hair out trying to get this car to pass Oregon emissions inspection! I have VCDS. I bought this car at auction where it had a CEL (as well as an ABS fault but that is for another thread). It has 127k miles, and according to the prior owner (who traded it in to a dealer)...

    Symptoms: On a road trip, my dashboard temperature gauge wasn't coming up to normal mid-dial 190 degrees F. It was fluctuating at lower temps. I could still get adequate heat in the car, but I might have had to set the temperature higher than usual. A short time later I got a Check Engine...

    OK, all you sparkies out there....a few questions, statements to make sure I'm "thinkin right".....offer any thing you feel I'm ignorant regarding....(Passat only, please) 1) Plugs (Bosch 4303 Double Platinum) SHOULD last 45K miles, and MAY go 100K...? When the gap widens out over time, what...

    Hello All, So I have been getting intermittent misfire codes and a pretty consistent Secondary Air Injection fault on both cylinder banks for an insufficient flow. I recently replaced all the upper vacuum lines, including the one to the driver unit. I also replaced all the PCV hoses and the PCV...

    Prior to doing my rack and pinion (R&P), I did a lot of looking for videos and information. There is a and detailed information about the steps. Both sources explain the process well, but, depending on your model, you may have more steps to deal with. Start by educating yourself with the...

    Background: I discovered the coolant system was filthy (brown liquid) when I changed the oil in my 2003 V6 Passat. I also discovered cracks in the heater core outlet pipe when I was flushing the system (tough luck, oh well). I've replaced the heater core, and ran several gallons of distilled...

    I removed the driver side cat. assy. with no issues, but the passenger side upper nut I can't seem to get the right tool for it. I have the "snorkle" removed and I've tried to get a tool on it from the top side, but the Kombi valve (EGR) is in the way to get access to the top nut. Does any one...

    Hey guys, I'm finally finishing up all the needed maintenance on the Passat (full timing belt job, valve cover gaskets, PCV system) and I'm wondering what I can do before filling with G12. The previous owner ran the car with green coolant for who knows how long. Is it enough just to fill the...

    So a friend has a 2002 V6 Passat and the bolt on the tensioner pulley broke. It pounded the crap out of the valves in bank 1, I know because I did a compression test, found zero compression in bank 1. So we pulled the head, confirmed the bent valves and installed a used replacement head...

    I am getting a very occasional but very annoying stalling problem after my '03 V6 B5.5 ATQ Passat is up to temperature. It happens at idle out of the blue, but only after driving for a while. No CEL light (or any other lights) or codes after scanning it. It goes like this... the car idles...

    history (it is actually a 2000 A6 2.8 ATQ, but same motor...): 1. Timing belt was replaced by me this past winter (potentially pertinent...) 2. I'm trying to get my daughter's car ready for emissions testing here in CT - I'm assuming they look for readiness codes, due to the amount of time it...

    Hi... I have 2004 Passat V6, runs rough. CEL is on, code read is P0301. Inspected the spark plugs on passenger side and found oil in the spark plug 2 & 3 but spark plug 1 is dry and looks good. I found on the other threads in this forum the oil in the spark plug well will cause misfire. Is...

Asking $500 for engine and $300 the tranny...but wait.. I'm willing to part out if it needs. Also ECM, wiring harness, cat. and O2 sensors...
