  2. Volkswagen Passat TDI Discussion
    Last weekend I had catastrophic failure, just as I was parking the car at an airport, before flying off. I've always had a persistent coolant problem on my '97 B5 TDI Passat. The car was happy running with the coolant level just below the "min" line. Upon topping up, the coolant would "leak"...

    Hello All, I had to take a day and calm down before posting but lets see how this goes. I have been reading the forums here for maintenance tips since my parents gave me a 2003 GLX 4-motion V6, a year and a half ago that was my fathers since around 60,000 miles. Shortly on Passat world I came...

    My 99 Passat 1.8t is in limp mode & has trouble code: P0717 input/turbine speed sensor circuit no signal. Does anyone here know exactly where the faulty sensor is actually located on the car? I just can't for the life of me find any info anywhere that tells me exactly where it is on the car. Is...

    I can't afford to take it to the dealership so what can I do to troubleshoot to find out the problem? Or are these two problems something needs to be taken care of at a German shop. I have a 2005 VW passat

    OK I have a 1999 B5 with an AEB engine. I have had this problem for a while but had forgot all about it as I have not been driving the car. Here is what I have found out so far, last year I heard what sounded like a blow off value, but I do not have one of them. I checked all the lines and went...

    Hello My A/C works, blows nice cold air. As I am driving the fan stops blowing. The LEDs on the A/C panel are lit but no cold air. I stop the car, restart it and the air starts blowing again. Have you see this problem? What should I do to try and fix it? Thanks! Matt

    Looking for some help on this one. After replacing the fuse, the turn signals will work for a little while, sometimes 1 minute sometimes 2 miles down the road. Then they stop working. Hazards work fine. I added a trailer wiring harness with those wire crimpers which seemed to be the...

    I really like that sound that a blow off valve makes when you rev the car, but as i found out, its not simple. Any idea how?

    Here is the problem (2007 B6 Passat 2.0T Wagon): Blower was working fine when it went in to see why my AC wasn't cold (bad compressor, hasn't been replaced yet, spins but something broke internally). The fan stopped working while at the shop. It does not work in any speed so I pulled the glove...

    Ok this might be normal or it might be part of my problem that I have been trying to find, but here it is. About two days ago now my car started to have more power for once. Still could not pull out and just go but it was better at around 30-40 rpm. Well yesterday I had to go get my kids and...

  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Color me naive, but until yesterday I guess I'd misinterpreted what people were talking about when they said they wanted a BOV because they liked the noise. I came across some sort of de-badged Subaru on the highway. Usual accoutrements; fart-can exhaust, giant spoiler, oversized, red-painted...
