  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Been dealing with my son's Passat low oil pressure issues for several years now. It all started with an exploding CCT that shredded the valve cover. New CCT, new valve cover, pulled oil pan and cleaned pickup and replaced oil pump and installed oil pressure gauge to monitor pressure which was...

    Hi all, I've got a 2003 1.8t that is misfiring and I can't get it running right. I replaced all of the plugs and coils but still no go. In the process I found that one of the coil harnesses is cracked by the pins. I can't get it to an auto parts store to check the codes because it won't make...

    Happy New Year folks. Secondary Air Injection motor continues to run on after I switch off. Naturally my battery is VERY dead (out of car being charged). I cannot Jump start the car as this "AIR" motor runs and drains the current from the rest for it to start. Anybody faced this before? Any...

    So, I have been patrolling this website for some time now (own 2 b5 passats) and have gained a ton of good info for both my w8 and the wife's v6 glx. But its the v6 giving me issues now. Alternator workshop reared its ugly face and sure enough stranded my wife (luckily not to far from home)...

    Any Help is greatly Appreciated as the Temps out here in the S.W. Desert get well over 100 during the summer. Here is the problem I've been having. When it gets hot, hot enough for the MFD to not display properly which is a known problem in itself, The A/C and/or Fan doesn't always turn on...

    Hello to all. I've been a long-time lurker and am finally signed up and posting. I'm in need of help/advice. I've been having many frustrating problems with my passat over the last 3 weeks. Here are the details. 2004 GLX V6, ~92k miles. Regular maintenance, already had the timing belt replaced...

    Here we go again. A few months back it started with the tie rod connections and rotors. Then, the flex joint and catalytic converters. Although now I'm pretty sure that I didn't really need to replace my catalytic converters. Then, the scheduled timing belt replacement, at Edge Motors...

    So, I replaced the trans mount that I thought was giving me the "clunk" sound upon braking. No go. So, I pulled the wheel and started hitting stuff with the rubber mallet. When I hit the back of the caliper...lo and behold, it had that same metallic sound. Upon searching around here, it...
  9. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I am now retired after over fifty years in the automobile repair trade. I normally can dope out a logical solution to a problem or a fix. This one is managed by gremlins. Some months ago I ran an article about a wonderful miracle. My 07 B6 2.0L turbo has used a quart of oil every 1200 miles...

    well after 2 body shops and 3 attempts to repaint the front and rear bumpers i've got the car back and i'm quite happy with the paint now, ecstatic even. i filed a complaint against the original body shop that botched the job twice and my credit card company has initially approved the dispute...

    Basically EuConect is a group for tri-state (and outside of that even. Hell, east coast) VW/Audi owners. Based more on being friends and having a good time versus having 25 sets of wheels in your basement (Dmitriy) or having multiple cars (Small and Medium Mikes) or having no sense of humor and...

    I've had this big backup of mods backup over the past year, and have finally gotten the momentum to get these things finished. My 3 piece Zender rear spoiler (I did the bodywork on this myself, I did all the bondo and glaze, primer, paint and clear coating, and sanding, sanding, sanding)...

    Ok, I've checked out the CCM and it looked like a couple of wires were loose in the loom. Made sure everything was snug and amazingly the door locks all worked as they were supposed to... for about a week. Now today, I go to unlock the door, lock pops up but door won't open. So I unlock all...

    So I was driving down the freeway the other week and my left front turnlight pops out. Sorted, bought some new clear ones from Purplezr2 who I'm sure won't keep me waiting any longer than the week it's been since I paid him. :poke: Anyway, the same thing happened AGAIN today on the other side...

    CR, the erstwhile arch-enemy of Volkswagen due mainly to reliability, seems to be coming around to the new offerings. The Passat is now their #2 sedan (just barely behind the Acura TL) and now: The new GTI tops the list of Sporty Cars under $25k, and by a hefty margin! (96 to the Civic Si's...

    Ten days ago, after waiting and waiting for Adire to ship the new Brahma line, I got tired of waiting and starting looking around at alternatives, even temporary alternatives, so I could get my stealthbox installed with a 12 inch sub. I went on eBay, and found a pretty good temporary sub: an...
