  3. Block heater on 2007 Passat.

    B6 Garage
    Last December I bought a used 2007 Passat 2.0T sedan from Agincourt Autohaus in Toronto. I now live in Calgary and every one is telling me that I need a block heater. Where should I look to see if I have one installed? I've been told that most cars sold in Canada usually come with one. If I...

  8. Noh-hydraulic timing kit for 058 block engines.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    For anyone interested in converting their 1.8 timing belt tensioner to a non-hydraulic one, you can get the new tensioner system for 1.8 motors from Audi. Based on what the parts manager said it is based on the A4 b7 2.0 system. Also, it looks like there is an aftermarket kit for this: IE 058...
  9. 1.8t is my block toast?

    B5 Garage
    It has been quite a while since I have been able to work on my car. Back in August, it blew a timing belt. I got a new head, and head set, cleaned everything up and put it back together. I was able to get it to run but it kept misfiring and acting like water entering the cylinders. By the time I...
  10. Block interchangeability

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My AWM engine threw a rod and I found a rebuilt block from a 2000. I know heads mostly are not interchangeable, but I'm not sure of the blocks. Anyone know if a 2000 block will work in a 2004?

  14. Measuring Block 031 Lambda

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I have been measuring some blocks and I recognized that I have something weird going on in measuring block 031. I have an AWM engine so 031 shows actual and requested lambdas. So my actual lambda is usually within spec, but sometimes it is way off. I see a lot of 1.991 and some 1.6xx, 1.4xx...
  15. Huge power Loss after engine overhaul with white/grey smoke that caused DPF to block

    Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    My 2007 2.0 Passat TDi with BMP engine code broke its crankshaft at 130,000km. This happened after the engine became progressively more noisy over a month or so. Local agents thought the noise was a "Diesel knock" caused by an injector. My problem with the overhauled engine is that it is...

    I'm still looking for a short block for my 1999 Passat with the AEB engine. Anybody know if the early Audi TT's have a compatible block?
  19. AEB head on AWM block question

    B5 Garage
    If you swap an AEB head onto a AWM block, I'd assume you'd use a timing belt kit for an AEB, right? :salute:
  20. Coolant leak on side of block

    B5 Garage
    I have a 99 1.8t and noticed today that it has a small coolant leak. I had to add some yesterday for the first time since I have owned it. (3 months) the coolant leak looked like it was coming from what I would call a rectangular hose connecting two freeze plugs. I am in the process of many...
