    What many miles do you recommend between oil changes with full synthetic oil, with a V6, 150,000 miles, driving 80% city streets, 20% highway. Also, does the weather affect things, like a cold winter in Minnesota? I always change the filter when I change the oil.

    Passat B5 2000 2.3 tiptronic gearbox snatchy gear changes Hello everyone, After a long trip my Passat (2000 2.3L V5) tiptronic gearbox is no longer smooth in changing gears. It has become snatchy all of a sudden. The car has done 205,000 miles and has never had the gearbox oil changed. I...

    Hey all! Car is an '03 V6 4motion 179k Not looking to fix any issues as much as I'm wanting to bring the car current as I'm a new owner and have no record of these being done... Wanting to change transmission fluid which I'm reading is best to change the filter and pan gasket at the same...

    I am new so if this question has been asked already please redirect me, I could not find the answer. Every once a while when I am trying to send new post I am being redirected to the site where I am supposed to fill the info about my car, I do it but it does not save and the fields remain empty...

    Just upgraded from an '02 1.8T w/ 182K miles to the '14 1.8T with a well maintained 98K miles. First, I'll assume the '14 has a belt, not a chain. 2nd, I'll assume it is a totally redesigned 1.8 for the 2014. So does the '14 require timing belt changes like my B5 did? Hopefully less... It...
  7. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    My B7 1.8T TSI currently has slightly over 5100 miles on it. I thought I heard a VW mechanic say my first oil change wouldn't be until 10,000 miles (he said this the day I bought the car back in February), but that sounds too long to wait. How frequently do you folks change the oil on your B7s...

    Hello!! I recently purchased a 2012 CC Sport 2.0T. I'm not familiar with all the car lingo so please bear with me! :-) I love pretty much everything about the car and it was a perfect match as far as what I wanted. There's really only two things I'm wondering about...#1 the kind of loud "road...

    I still own the ‘99 Passat 6 cylinder 5 speed I bought new. It mostly takes me to & from the airport, so it only has ~ 123k miles on it. Runs great, though it drinks a fair bit of oil in the process. Since it was new, I’ve always found that I could use different levels of gas during...

    Not long had this so don't know what the norm is but after a 30 minute motorway run i notice gear changes had stiffened up slightly. Not much and no problems getting any of the gears but was a noticeable increase in the stiffness on the stick. Does this sound like an oil change is needed? Its...

    last time i posted my passat wagon, i had a camo theme started. i was going to finish the look with some white, but i got sick of it and just pulled it all off. then i thought about doing the whole car a solid matte plastidip color, but i fell back in love with the stock look and left it...
