    Hey everybody, I found out that my 2005 Passat isn't getting boost because of a clogged cat. A mechanic quoted me $780 to replace it, but when I said that might be too much, he told me I could also just put in a delete pipe. He said he wouldn't do it because he could get in a lot of trouble...

    Occasionally it doesn't start with the first crank of the key and I have to restart it and then it cranks and cranks and cranks and it finally starts. I had it replaced about 7-8 thousand miles ago, but not sure what brand they used and I used fuel cleaners which I think clogged up the filter...

    :) Hi ! I'm starting to have a clogged PCV system and thinking of getting a complete PCV Silicone hose kit. But where to find it ? Where to order it to the best price ? Something else you should take the opportunity to change when you have everything apart ? Any Advice / Experiences / Tips ...

    I had no heat in my 1998 Passat. Thought it was a clogged heater core (no overheating, but it is winter, so...) Hooked up a submersible pump to the 2 core lines middle of engine bay, firewall. The pump by design is not putting out much pressure, but from the very beginning, decent flow. Flushed...

    In this thread I read that the OP has tried the ‘10ga stranded wire trick’ which made things better for a few months. Does anyone know what this trick is? Is it really possible to access the oil pickup screen with a wire and clean it without dropping the oil pan? Thanks :)

    I recently purchased a 2001 Passat with the 1.8T AUG engine as a project, I bought it with oil in the coolant knowing it was likely the oil cooler, and upon trailering it home my suspicions were confirmed as a previous owner had bypassed the cooler to avoid further mixing. Yesterday I replaced...

    My daughter was driving the passat home from college when she got a flashing oil light. She called me and I told her to check the oil and add a quart iof it was low. She did, then restarted the car and noticed a new clattering noise coming from the engine. Fearing the worst, I had her wait and...

    Hey, I recently asked about axles, I thought they had an effect on car's performance in terms of acceleration but could not find a link between sluggish acceleration and cv axles. So I looked further, my fuel injection is all good although sometimes I smell the fumes through the cabin. But to...

    I have been fighting loss of heat in my Passat for years. About 3 years back I started flushing the heater core with CLR every season with some success. This year no luck, and I had a total loss of heat. I bit the bullet at took it to the dealer to have it replaced for $1400, about half the blue...

    I recently lost oil pressure in my 1.8t 2000 passat and after getting some advice here I started the job of getting the oil pan off to check for sludge. I finally got the pan off today and from what I can tell, there isn't much sludge. There is a bit stuck to the sides of the pan but the screen...

    Leaking Fuel near Fuel Filter - Clogged Ventilation Line? 99 1.8T Wagon w/ AT I have an issue with a leaking fuel near a fuel filter. When a car sits in a garage for a long period of time, it would start leaking where a short rubber hose connects to a fuel filter. By leaking I mean, not just...

    Hey all, So I installed a FRANKENTURBO a few weeks back. Ok so I'm now getting oil coming out of the vented oil cap. This wasn't happening with my K03. Is there just to much pressure now? I'm getting a very strong oil smell in the cabin now.. I was thinking of cleaning all the pcv hoses...

    I have everything apart and was checking it. In the pic that my finger is pointing at I cannot suck or blow through that port. Is that normal or clogged ?

    Ok, so I just bought my 02 Passat... I turned the AC on when I bought the car..but lol..I never checked the heat. After reading posts on this board and realizing the heater core problem..sure enough, I have cold air. If I left the fan on low..and ran the car at 3000 rpm the air would start to...

    I've read over many of the PCV threads here, but I still can't seem to find a reason why the PCV gets clogged. Is it something we can prevent? Is it a design flaw? Basically, after replacing the PCV, how do we prevent the clog up again and all of the associated problems?

    So the long story is 2 days ago I decided to investigate my p1338 engine code that won't go away. My cam sensor is good (swapped bank 2 sensor with bank 1 and still showed bank 1 code) So I figured maybe my intake cam was off a tooth on the tensioner. pulled the valve cover off and timing marks...

    Question for you guys as I have never had to deal with sludge(guess I was lucky). My sisters boyfriend has a 2001 audi A4 Auto with about 150k on it. The car history is unknown to me other then the last two oil changes(which I did). The car basically was running fine, the oil light flicked on...

    I have a 2002 Passat V6. I just bought a breather tube to replace the broken one that was also pretty clogged. When I went to install it, I noticed the inside of the connection point at the valve cover was really looking clogged. Can I use some type of hook tool or something to clean it out? Or...

    I had the weeping oil on the back of the VC 8k miles ago and replacing the purge suction valve fixed it. Now oil is seeping from the same place. Could these things really clog this fast? (I had the VC and oil pan removed by the VW dealer shortly after replacing the valve and the engine was said...

    I have a 03 GLX. For some reason the previous owner had the heater core bypassed by connecting the two heater hoses together. I justed tryed flushing it with water again and it flows fine and i did not see any water leaking from inside the car. My next step is to run some CLR through it. Im...
