  1. Removing radiator transmission cooler lines

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I guess I developed a half-round crack on the radiator upper hose plastic connector while pulling on the hose a little too hard to disconnect it from the radiator, during a timing belt replacement job. Unfortunately, I now have to replace the whole radiator. 1) Long shot but let me ask you...
  2. oil cooler seal story and a knocking problem

    B5 Garage
    A small story and a huge piece of advice. If your Passat is about 12-13 years old and sits in both hot and cold weather check underneath it for any leakage. I got in mine one cold morning on the way to the hospital for a family members emergency. I got about 2 miles before the low oil warning...
  3. B5.5 AWM Oil Cooler from AutoZone okay?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So my oil cooler is allowing oil into my coolant. At least that's my explanation for oil in my coolant during a water pump replacement last weekend. I don't know how much these are from the dealer. AutoZone seems to be about $95. Has anyone experienced any reliability issues with the...

  5. ATW - change ONLY the cooler pump belt ?

    B5 Garage
    I'd prefer to change this belt now as it has a crack. The other ones are in great shape (but I plan on changing the Timing belt, coolant pump and all belts in the near future). Has anyone else replaced just that belt? Without removing the LC to service pos? It's got little space but it looks...

  7. Swapped trans cooler lines....maybe?

    B5 Garage
    What would the potential consequences be of swapping the inlet and return lines from the auto trans cooler? Not that I've done that or anything.... I replaced sections of both these lines but not sure if I got them back in the right positions? Do these lines supply the torque converter...

  10. Testing the Oil Cooler

    B5 Garage
    So I decided the best course of action to help locate the source of my Cloudy/milky coolant is to pull and test the oil cooler on my V6, when I am flushing the cooling system. I did a quick search and did not find any post on this, so I thought I would double check here in case it isn't as...

  14. Oil drop on oil cooler.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 1999 1.8T and every time I look under my car I see one drop of oil on the lower corner of the oil cooler housing. The block that the oil filter screws onto... Where could this drip be coming from? I just put a new filter on with the recent oil change, so I'm pretty sure its not leaking...
  15. Oil cooler lines or not?

    B5 Garage
    99 Passat 1.8T Is the corroded line one of the oil cooler lines? It runs along the bottom of the radiator. I slid on top of a rock at the end of my drive a few weeks ago. So I'm thinking that something got busted. Looked underneath when it was in the air and it looked good. I have one of...

  18. Engine oil cooler replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just got a few questions on replacing the engine oil cooler if anyone has the time to help me. I have narrowed it down to faulty oil cooler (or gasket) but at 123k miles and assuming it is the original part I am now going to replace the oil cooler. I have oil leaking into my coolant and the...

  20. 'Tis the Season: Oil Cooler Gasket Kaput

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This morning it was about 10F/-12C, the first sort of cold day of the year. No problems, but my oil cooler gasket finally gave up the ghost as I entered the parking lot at work -- flashing oil light, dinging bell, a steady stream of oil showing where I went and a big puddle of oil forming up...
