  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So there have been issues of B5 cup holders being stuck in the dashboard, but my issue is that it doesn't stay latched in the dashboard, or in simple terms, it doesn't close. I came up with a solution by just taping it closed, and taking it off whenever I want to use them, but I still need the...

    So i got a 1997 VW Passat B5, 1.6 Petrol Engine. When i start the car it will idle at alomost 0 rpm, even though it doesnt stall and runs kinda fine, except it doesnt have much power. What i mean by that is that it doesnt accelerate good and in a steepy road it will accelerate very slowly on 3rd...

    Recently my father bought me a non-running 2000 Volkswagen passat, and it refuses to start *unless you disconnect the battery for a set amount of time, then it will run once and after that you can't start it again without disconnecting the battery. There also appears to be a missing fuse in the...

    Hey guys, I'm new so i can't post in the B5 section. So i noticed a thumping noise in the rear left hand fender well when the purge valve (N80) pulses that is very noticable at idle when stopped. Heres a video of my problem -- The video shows somewhat inside the rear drivers side rear wheel...
  6. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Okay, so this topic is normally beat to death across all kinds of forums, but this one I think requires a bit more thought and information. P1539 is the vacuum vent valve switch, so i went cheap and got 3 from the junk yard on the thought that its highly unlikely that they are all bad. After...

    By Nick Dasko I have a confession, I have a serious crush on the W8 Passat. I don't have a need to own one but I would like to spend a week with one and get it out of my system. It is in my top three favourite VWs list from the crazy early 2000s when they sold the W12 Phaeton, the V10 diesel...

  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Every once in a while my Passat Idles rough and I don't know what to make of it. Honestly I love my Passat but it scares me every time it does that. I've learned that if i accelerate that after some time it goes away, but it always comes back to the same situation. I also have a check engine...
