I have a 2000 Passat 2.8 GLX just rolled over 74,000 miles, and it has a pretty strong burnt oil smell in the cabin when recirculating air is not on.

    Last weekend I replaced my front pads & rotors. This weekend I did the rears. My front pistons were both quite rusted, and I don't think I ever got the front left compressed completely. After I replaced them, the left front smoked a bit for the first few rides, then stopped. The right...

  12. 2 Problems- Burning rubber smell, and battery drain

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Two new issues with my 2002 Passat GLX 4mo Wagon First, there's a burning rubber smell that just started. It's not the burning oil smell, it's legit rubber/plastic burning smell. My wild-ass-guess is timing belt being too tight now that it's warmed up outside, since I had it put on in the...

  19. V6 still burning oil

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was wondering would a low coolant level cause my 2000 v6 to burn oil? I've changed out the vcg and couldn't find any more leaks around the other gaskets, pcv should be fine as well. Sorry I don't know to much about cars I'm still learning :lol:
  20. Burning oil smell, but no obvious cause??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Long story short, the smell started up just a couple months ago on the wife's 01.5 4mo wagon. I figured "Hey, it was bound to happen, I'll just order the Blauparts kit and be done with it in a day or two over Christmas." Well, the CCT compressor tool broke, but I was able to replace the VCGs...
