  2. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I have bought a 2008 model Passat. When I searched about the most common complaints of this vehicle, I found fuel leakage and oil pump noise problems. This is not the issue of all models. A few days back, I had a complete service from one car repair shop in Etobicoke and the vehicle condition is...

    2002 GLS 1.8T AWM Automatic I can't smog in CA because I keep throwing P0411 and P0011 codes. At idle (800 rpm) timing is about 8 to 10 degrees BTDC After resetting fault codes, SAIP is past readiness to pass. But as soon as it passes, CEL and P1556, P0411 and P0011 faults. Every time...

    Topped off my ATF this weekend - it was def. low. I got an entire bottle to go in before it started coming back out. That being said, the ATF definitely went somewhere - the question is where did it leak from. Are there common leak points on the automatics fwd? I have a small VCG leak that...

    Every since I swapped out my vacuum hoses, I've been getting a consistent 0431/0421 error code. I went over everything again, this last weekend, and couldn't find any leaking, or cracked spots in the hoses. It should be noted that I didn't change out the hose that goes to the driver module on...

    When I was looking for my B5 Wagon in 2007, I was told there was only one 4motion in this configuration in the country. I laughed to myself at the time, thinking it was Salesmen BS being thrown at me to close the sale on my V6/4motion. Since then, this is the only one Ive seen in 6 years, Is...

    After the whole "we can't sell you the brake lines that fit your ECS BBK kit because you are not the original owner and we cannot verify your kit is one of ours" BS and attempted reaming without even a half-hearted reach around from ECS, there was NO EFFING WAY I was sending $120 to them for a...

    It is spring, sunny and dry here but suddenly (for about a week now) my windshield started to foggy up for no apparent reason. If I turn on front defrost (manual control: A/C on, temperature to max high, direct air to windshield), the fog does not dissipate as quickly as in the past. All these...

    Hello, I'm looking at purchasing either a Passat wagon or a Jetta, somewhere between 2000 and 2003, automatic transmission. What common problems or recurring issues do they have? If anyone has any input it would be much appreciated. Thanks

    I don't have much test equipment OTHER than a code reader and multi-meter, and I'm trying to narrow down a lack-of-spark problem on my 98 1.8t AEB Passat. Any thoughts on how to track this down?

    I took my relatively new to me 01 B5 4Mo in for an alignment the other day. The alignment guy brought me over and showed me a bunch of play in the upper control arms, at the rubber bushings. He said he could not align it until those were fixed. I asked, and he thought the lower arms and tie rod...

    Is burnt valve common on 1.8T engine (esp. AUG/AWM)? if so, around what mileage? What are common underlying causes? - I don't want to attempt fixing the cylinder head and have the problem recur soon afterward. I googled but couldn't dig up much info about 1.8T engine. Many literature list lean...
  18. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I'm thinking of buying a used 2008 B6 with the 2.0 litre engine, and would appreciate any advice on what to be prepared for in terms of common problems. This will be my third Passat, after a 1992 B3 I drove for 12 years and my current ride, a 2000 B5 I've owned for 9 years. The B5 suffers from...
