    So for anyone who hasn't seen my other threads, I have a b5.5 (2003 awm 1.8t) passat. I changed out my cam sensor and it sensor and I'm still getting codes. Any idea on how much it would be for electrical work or any tricks out there that could help? It's my only car and I am broke..

    I have a 2004 Passat wagon 1.8t auto that is completely stock. I plan on lowering it using KONI orange shocks (STR.T KIT-82501001) and eibach pro kit lowering springs (8568.14). They seem to offer only springs for 1.8t sedan and v6 wagon, but no 1.8t wagon. I was wondering if the sedan springs...

    Hello forum, I have what seems to be a small coolant leak somewhere on the drivers side of the vehicle. I recently added UV coolant dye to the coolant reservoir to help me to locate the leak. After a week of driving around with the dye in the cooling system, I was able to see some of the UV...

    Hi guys, It's me again with my B5 adventures. So, my oil pan drain spitted a few threads and the drain plug won't torque anymore. At this point I would love to replace the oil pan and do the due diligence down there and replace oil pump, pickup tube, chain and tensioner, BUT, I really don't...

    Hi, I'm George, and my car is Whistling Death. She's a 2001 B5.5 1.8t AWM Estate (or as we say here, station wagon) with 175,000+ miles, and to some degree, all of the woes of that particular MKIV generation. I paid $800 for her initially. Cosmetically, a solid car. Drove reasonably well on the...

    Hey guys, I'm doing some brake booster tests related to a system lean code(P1128). Without getting too much into details(I will try to if needed), should I be able to blow air straight through the brake booster? I did a smoke test by disconnecting the vacuum source line for the booster and...

    I have a 2002 Passat wagon 1.8t with a little over 61k miles on it. Lately the car seems slower than usual, and this is also combined with a disappearance of turbo spooling whine and the appearance of a whooshing sound, almost like there is a leak in the turbo gasket. There are no lights on in...

    '03 B5.5 1.8T Went to replace a burnt out headlight. Twisted the clip holding the bulb in and inner part of the headlight unit popped loose. Now I can grab the base of the bulb and wiggle and it moves around in there. The housing itself is still firmly bolted into the car. I would assume that...
