  3. Better to block or bypass a leaking heater core?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My B5.5 1.8t is slowly losing coolant and I'm having a hard time locating the source.

  10. Bypass filter installed

    B5 Garage
    I installed a Frantz bypass filter on my 2001 AUG 1.8t. I'm not trying to save money on oil changes per se (though I do think you could make it pay off by say tripling your oil change intervals), I did it rather to clean out a long history of neglect and abuse on this engine and to introduce...

    The clutch on the A/C on my 2000 B5 V6 gave up the ghost a couple of years ago, and now the pulley bearings sound like they're going to give up too.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So my neutral safety switch is shot and the car really isn't worth the cost of replacement so I was looking into bypassing it. Does anyone have a guide on how to do this or is it just the same as most vehicles? I've had two mechanics say I can't do it, but another two say I can. The only way...
