  6. 99 1.8T Blowing temp sensor off of Block

    B5 Garage
    It started when I got a low coolant light, a look under the hood and I heard the water running out of the back of the block. A quick look around these boards showed me that it was the Coolant/Fan switch sensor, and I was missing a clip. I nearly laughed out loud when I found out the local parts...
  7. Post PCV-delete questions... block breather, valve cover, vent etc...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I finally bit the bullet and deleted my PCV system and cleaned up my drive bay. Long story short, I followed the DIYs and ran a 3/4" from the block breather straight into the valve cover and then dumped the other end below the car. Am I right so far? Now, here's my questions: 1. What does the...

    Hey all! I literally just joined the VW world on Friday at around 9pm. I had no idea I even wanted one until I started to realize how hard it was to find a nice used Saab 9.3 around here. So, a Passat caught my eye; 6 speed, 2.0T, black leather. Mmm... And I had to have it! Since buying it, I've...

  19. Rusted engine block

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2001.5 V6 ATQ. In the process of changing my engine mounts, I noticed the lower part of the engine block badly rusted. I know that for a 10-year old car it is very unlikely to remain rust-free, especially in the crazy-ass Canadian winters, but the sight didn't inspire much confidence, it looks...
