    Hi, my 2004 1.8t faults are showing a P0441 fault and a loose gas cap indicator. I have reset the P0441 and replaced the gas cap but both of them come back on intermittently. Is there a likely cause? Bad N-80 valve, clogged charcoal canister, cracked hose? Most likely issue? Please let me know...

    Shouldn't these caps have o-rings ?

    Is this a coincidence? I replaced the fuel pump on my wife's 2004 Passat B5.5 which was very easy BTW. Started right up and Drove it around about 10 miles, no problem. After a day, the gas cap warning light illuminates. :confused: Is this coincidence and the gas cap seal is no good anymore...

    So when the car is running and I remove the oil cap there is quite a bit of pressure coming out. Is this normal? Never had a turbo'd car before and also don't ever remember any of my other cars having any pressure when taking the fill cap off.

    Anyone knows if centre caps from 17" Audi Factory 9 Spoke Rims can be changed with centre caps with a VW emblem? Thanks

    Hey guys, Just went through the nightmare of changing the half moon seal and gasket on the ATQ passenger's side, hopefully it doesn't leak because I had little to no room to get things done even though tool 3366 had the chain slackened. Now I'm trying to do the cam tensioner cap on this side...

    My B5.5 PD130 Sport has just started using water. Not much but I need to top it up every 300 miles. It is not overheating, there is no mayonaise in the oil or oil in the expansion tank. I've just bought a new expansion bottle cap as the original is on 170,000 miles and it felt a bit 'loose'...

    As stated, I only need the mirror cap in that color, mine is faded. I also need the passenger side bumper grille with fogs for a B5.5. ECS tuning has them for $19.00 with free shipping but if you have the mirror and the grille I'd take both. Also, if you're close enough to Western North...

    Hello, back with a few things that have had me concerned. Today, I popped the hood to check things and I noticed the coolant tank dirty and has some coolant sprayed over, see images. It was clean last time I did a coolant flush when I did the timing belt, almost 10K miles ago. I had a problem...

    Hey everyone, so I just bought my 2001 Passat 1.8t manual transmission with ~145,000 miles a few hours ago and I'm apparently an idiot because I never checked the coolant or looked under the radiator cap. I checked the oil and it was a little low, but there wasn't any signs of a leak or any...

    Driving home in the -10 degree weather of Iowa, my drivers side cam cap blew out sometime on my 40 minute interstate drive. Didn't notice the smoke billowing up until I stopped at my exit. Found somewhere to park and found the massive hole in the back of my engine bleeding. I originally...

    Monday evening, my daughter was sitting in a fast food drive-thru 2 hours away when she heard hissing, saw vapors, and the check engine light started flashing. She quickly pulled into a parking place and shut it down. When she called me, she said she opened the hood and saw that the expansion...

    For several weeks my wife's car has sometimes been making an odd sound from the gas cap, it's not very loud, it's kind of a honk every 2 or 3 seconds. I don't know if it is related to filling the gas tank or not. The check engine light just came on with a P0442 code. If I open the gas cap...

    04 GLX V6 165.500 miles Is it normal for the engine to idle rough for a few seconds after I remove the oil filler cap while it's at idle??? I have never noticed this in any other car. I bought the cap for my 01 V6 GLX but since I'm selling that one I swapped it out for the one on my 04. Thanks

    Hi all - I am working on the pax side bank. I managed to remove all cam caps and the camshafts, but the T30 fastener on cap 7 is going to be impossible to torque back down properly due to the proximity to the body metal. I just about ruined the bolt extracting. The gap is too small for a T30 bit...
