    Hey guys, Here I am again haha So, my 2003 Passat B5.5 was given to me early this year, but it had a couple of problems, which I am learning and fixing it myself. Last weekend I replaced all the spark plugs, and there was one spark plug (cylinder 2) that was way longer than the others...

    Good morning all, Well as the title states. After a tune up on my newly purchased 2005 1.8T, I have continued getting the Cylinder #2 misfires as well as other codes including the O2 sensor. I'm at work and don't have the exact CEL's on me right now. After a few days of research and getting some...

    I like to find out when my Turbo comes in without having to wait for the noise (which it means is ON now). When I posted something on the same the aswers as I understand them point to it comes in period. I am sure that must be a trigger from some sensor or combination of sensors that determines...

    The plastic broke and I just had an old change but big leaks on the Turbo unit so I cannot go by the amount of oil unless through it out and replacing this new oil with another new batch. Could someone that owns a Passat as mine above just go and measure the distance from the very end of the...

    This idiot guy has sent me a crankcase vent valve for V6 which is somewhat bigger than the one I have in my 2002 AWM. So the question is whether I can use these interchangeably or I must use the one that is specific to AWM :salute:

    Hi. Long time reader, first time poster. Background: I have a 2004 VW Passat B 5.5 AWM 4cyl with 177k miles. Car runs very well, very smooth idle, slight power loss going uphill, typically in the winter. I recently had brake pads + rotors replaced (fall of 2018) and more recently had a set of 4...

    This just started popping up. Looked up the code and seems to be the secondary air pump, either the pump itself or the lines. I located the pump, just seems really tight to get to it and the lines with the bumper on. Is their a way yo get some room to pull the bump if needed or am I pulling the...

    I have watched many videos on YouTube and read many posts on this forum and vortex. No matter what, I am simply not able to locate the PCV valve. This is so darn frustrating to me.:banghead: Could someone very specifically mention where exactly the PCV valve sits in a AWM engine (1.8T 2002...

    I'm in the middle of a head job on my Passat, and I figured since I was in this far, I'd consider replacing the turbocharger since I'm at 276,000 miles. Does anyone have something sitting on the shelf that they are looking to sell? Maybe you upgraded yours to a performance turbo and kept the...

    So I'm trying to figure out what to do right now.. my pre-facelift 2001 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T just recently had the oil pickup screen get clogged, and because I needed to get to work I continued to drive it (ten minutes away), and then drove it back home (30 minutes). During the entire time I...

    My 01 passat 1.8t has been throwing the p0171 system too lean bank 1 code for some time and while it hasnt affected drivability at all, I would sleep better at night if I had an idea of what would be causing this. Mostly the cel lights up after a longer drive when I come to an idle at a sign or...

    It has a 3 pin connector and I would think that probably there is already cooked by someone in the forum to be able to stop the ECM from panic attacks when sees no coolant in the tank. Now working with the engine speed sensor and removing also the oil filter. The filter definitely will go back...

    2003 Passat GLS wagon w/ AWM motor @ 178.5k miles. Replaced T-Belt; WP; A/C belt; Alt Belt & all tensioners & idler pulley. Toughest T-Belt job I've done yet; ~8hrs total although I did also do R&R plugs on a friend's 2003 A4 1.8t who helped me with re-installing the front nose. The amount of...

    Hi all, 2001.5 Passat sedan 1.8t AWM, 174,800 miles. I've been working on the timing belt job from hell for the past two weeks. I first thought I had everything done, then I cranked it and the car wouldn't start (it would only crank). After realizing the belt was off 2 teeth I tore it apart...

    I have to replace weeping water pump on vehicle. There is about 70k on 2nd T-Belt, so I'm going to do the whole group of timing components. I see that there is an 'updated' kit with simple spring tensioner pulley with no hydraulic damper. I'm wondering if this is an improvement. I've seen...

    Hello everyone, I noticed that the hydaulic tensioner doesn't tension the pulley (picture). I was able to move the pulley lever up and down a couple of millimeters. I loosened the nut, rotated the pulley clockwise using pliers and tightened it. The belt between the cam and the water pump is...

    Hello everyone, Finally, I found time to check the timing. The crank timing is dead center. The exhaust cam is less than half a tooth off (to the right). The intake cam-4th picture- is almost half a tooth off at the chain. (The notch is to the tight of the triangle on the cam.) In the past I...

    Hi everyone. I have been looking for a write up for catch can installation on AWM engine. There is none worth reading or watching. A least I couldn’t find. Can anyone help explain how I can install a catch can? I am more interested in where to tap it? Right after the breather tube? Or at the...

    How do I get to the 373 Relay and the "C" fuse for the Brake Booster Relay and Brake system vacuum pump? I can see the relay after removing the fuse cover on the drivers side dash. I may even be able to reach it. Is this the best way to get at them both or should I be removing something else...
