    I've used M1 0W-40 since first OC at around 3k. My 03 B5.5 1.8T now has about 95k on it and recently noticed the dreaded CCA dieseling at idle which goes away above 1200 RPM so seems like its due to low oil pressure and not a broken CCA. I know my VCG is leaking since plug 1 had some small...

    I have a 2002 1.8T 5-spd GLS wagon with close to 150k miles. Have owned the car from new. Recently, the engine started to make the characteristic CCA diesel tapping at 900 - 1200 rpm. Idles smoothly and runs great at higher rpm, just this little rattling when starting in 1st gear from a stop...

    Below are some diagrams that show the proper way to count the chain link rollers. This definitely applies to the 2.8L V6 30V engine, and it may apply to other engines as well: With the engine in TDC position, the marks on both cam sprockets must align with the marks on the end caps that hold...

    Hi, I am trying to track down why after replacing my Cam Chain Adjuster it is still clacking away. Could someone measure the voltage at the CCA plug while the engine is running? I am getting 8.07v, but when I apply 12v with a car battery the engine quiets right down but starts to surge at idle...

    Looking for some help, both for myself and for others. After a lot of searching on which gaskets to replace and how to do them (specifically V6, but 1.8t has issues as well), I've gotten a lot of confusing and conflicting info on these primary sources of oil leaks. Can anyone--who knows these...
  6. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion I need to change out my CCA gaskets or check that tensioner. I was hoping someone would have some info on how to go about getting that done. Also, what does CCA stand for? All I can think of is Cold Cranking Amps.

    Does anyone know if a leaky cam seal or possibly a bad cam chain adjuster would be covered under the powertrain warranty? VWoA says no because it's not part of the powertrain. Huh!? I just had my oil cooler replaced under warranty, why not this? They recomended that I bring it to the dealer...

    I have no oil leaks but lots of noise coming from the engine top backend. I've serached/read here and there partial instructions and some mention to remove both the intake and exhaust cams on non AEB engines. I'd rather not remove the exhaust cam b/c that would imply a complete TB job as well...

    Does anyone who did the job himself (replaced the CCA) can post some details with photos? Any help will be highly apprecated. Any links?
