  2. I believe my turbo is on its way out.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  5. Blinking CEL and Shuddering, ICM I believe?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok so I ran vag-com and it had 2 misfire codes, one was Multiple Misfires Random, the other was Misfire number 2. So I swapped number 2 and 3 coil packs and ran again and it still gave the same codes, so I'm guessing its the ICM? So if this is the case what would you guys do? ICM delete? or...

    The Black Hole Discuss. To make sure JaytheSnork doesn't call this a drive-by thread. My 2 cents: Technically, I'm tired of liberal media who is enamoured by Obama and hated GW Bush. Since Obama taking office, he remains true to a typical...

    Like the title says, I believe these wheels are the Michigans (the 15" that look similar to Wellingtons). These are taking up too much space in my garage!

    Car question. I installed a new cone air filter. I need a heatshield. I've searched endlessly on "the last intake thread" and I can't find a writeup on how to make one myself. Please help me if you can thank you. It's just not being efficient. I replaced the stockbox due to losing those...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just imagine a toll road where you had to pull over and pay $3,50 every 22 miles or so. Or that Fat Bastard guy from Exxon is sitting in the passenger seat putting his fat hand out every 20 miles for another $3.50 out of your pocket, with a crooked grin on his fat face... I guess I just had a...
