  1. P0411 changed from static to intermittent, 2.8L

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I managed to get a P0411 code that had an obvious cause after inspecting my vacuum hoses. (Hopefully it won't have a secondary cause, but it was ok until I was messing around with a speedwrench to remove the top flange nut. Apparently trashed the little vacuum elbow on the combi valves.) So I...
  2. Changed the turbocharger coolant hose (w/o taking out the turbocharger)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, My 2002 1,8T (AWM) Passat Wagon had developed a coolant leak which I finally tracked down to a disintegrating turbocharger coolant hose. Here a picture of the hose for reference: The location of this hose makes it very difficult to access it. I took out the airbox and hoses attached to...

    B5 Garage

  4. Changed tires

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    My 2015 Passat had the rotten "Hankook" OEM tires 235x45x18. Tires were quite noisy. I also did not like those tiny "45" sidewalls and cannot see how some people run tires so low it's ridiculous, they might as well run on the rims. After doing a fair amount of research I changed to General...

  6. Should the timing belt be changed? 117,000 miles, 2002

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    A couple of years ago, my wife bought a used 2002 Passat V6 ATQ with 90,000 miles on it. The car now has 117,000 miles. I looked through the owners manual for maintenance schedules to figure out when the timing belt should be changed but I couldn't find anything. We assume the timing belt was...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, it took me 11 hours and $120 to my friend. We had the hardest time getting it into service position. Had no idea there was a bar that ran behind alternator to one of the bumper protrusions...you know each side has 4 bolts...we couldnt figure out for the life of us why it was not coming...

Filled up the coolant tank and closed the cap. Then started the car, ran the heat and then after about 10 min, the temp started raising 200 and...

  14. Anyone changed their cylinder head on their B6?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I'm 98% sure the cylinder head got a crack, so its building up a hugh preassure into the watertank. We changed the head gasket but still instant preassure from the first minute the car is running. It is a 2006 194.000 km. 1.9 TDI Im about to get parts, its expensive, but is it a way to be 100%...

    B5 Garage
    I am somewhat new to working on cars but I know the basics. I attempted my first timing belt change on my 2000 passat AWT 1.8t engine. While I was in there I also changed the water pump and belt, as well as the two front cam seals and the timing belt tensioner pulley. I first turned the...

    Anything Auto
    It's taken me a few years to get back on my feet. Four years cancer free now and almost as long without my own car. Been sharing the hubby's Forte. It's been a great little car and with the previous 2008 Sonata making it 2 for 2 with Hyundai/Kia reliability, I'm thinking of one for myself. First...
  17. How I changed my 1.8T motor mounts

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I needed to change my B5 1.8T motor mounts in my '99 Passat so I've been looking at the various posts and the instructions in the Information Base. One thing I quickly realized is that either I wasn't understanding the instructions or they just weren't exactly correct. Now, I'm a Technical...
