At last, she made it! Today the odometer turned 300.000! And I should give a big credit to the Passatworld members from whom I have received a lot of help! I have performed all the work needed by myself with the help of you guys, a lot of youtube videos and Haynes manual.
Those with more than...
Couple of days ago driving home, engine started missing at highway speeds. Then got worse and CEL came on and flashed too. Seemed to get worse if I slightly let up on the throttle. I got her back home and scanned the codes with a handheld scanner (reads VW codes). Car is a 2004 , 1.8T AWM...
I was getting ready to drive home from my parents near DC to Home in Raleigh, and I crank the car ('04 1.8T) in the driveway and RUMBLE, RUMBLE, RUMBLE, accompanied by a Blinking CEL. I cut the ignition and restart. No rumble, but I now have a solid CEL.
I drive to the nearest Advance, get...
I tried the usual suspects last weekend. Sunroof drains are clear, verified by blowing compressed air at 10 psi up the drains and pouring water down them, draining nice. Drain circumcision had been previously performed. :) Yanked the battery and noticed that the grommet under the battery tray...

Hey guys, long time member here from the club b5 days. I do recognize a few members names for way back then. I sold the b5 for a 20th Gti, got a mkv gti and then a b7 A4. But haven't been active on any forums since like 07ish. I just picked up a 2012 SE 2.5 b7 and I've got a couple questions I...

My 2007 2.0T just rolled over the 200,000 mark a few days ago. I was wondering if anyone has put that kinda mileage on their passat? So far I have had no issue's with the car other then a stint of ballast I went through over 3 weeks due to a cheap xenon bulb I purchased. Taking the car in today...
