    I was on my way home today in my 03, and took some railroad tracks way faster than I intended and got about 50 feet of air off of it, slammed into the ground HARD, and cracked my oil pan instantly, what else should I look for in the repair process?

    My youngest went up to the cottage last Wednesday, he took the Passat, said he made the trip in record time and all was well. Thursday evening he calls to tell me the CEL is lit and the engine is rough running. I assume that it probably needs new ignition coils, because all Passats with 1.8T...

    I am getting the fault codes shown below. Could the Oxygen Sensor problem cause the cylinder misfires? I think I already have an extenders on the O2 sensors. The car seems to drive fine but when I come to a stop with the engine running, it idles very rough. This happens when the car is fully...

    Hey everyone, if anyone has followed my oil cooler story then this is kinda a continuation. So my oil cooler failed and i failed on the replacement, not sure what i did wrong. When i failed, i drained the pepcock for like 5-10 minutes then closed it cause wasnt flowing, figured it was empty...
  7. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I've never driven or even set foot in a CC, but I always liked the looks of them, but this model's sales numbers are awful here in the US. Does the CC sell better elsewhere in the world? Thanks largely to "Dieselgate," VW is said to be planning on killing approximately 40 of its 340 different...

    Just a couple of hours ago I started my car (B5.5 1.T) to return home. The car shakes and has no power. With a lot of trouble and driving slowly I was able to drive home. I scanned it and got these codes: 16684 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected P0300 - 001 - 16687 -...

    So I've found a listing for a 2004 Variant with a 1.8t that says the car rattles like a diesel when running but has a pretty spotless body and interior. Before I drive over an hour to check out this $500 fix-er-upper, let's play "What could it be?" Any thoughts?

    I picked up a 1999 passat 1.8t for 300 bucks. I drove a ways to get it. I was told it needed work (clutch bleeding) but it was drivable. It had sat dead for months. We jumped it and off i want. It needed fuel so i drove it to the nearest station. As i pulled up to a pump and was on the clutch...

    I switch my stock headlight on 2003 Passat 1.8T to DEPO HID (from ebay). I have already disabled DRL by removing relay 173. Now I am thinking of change stock switch to a euro switch. My question to those who have installed a Euro switch (such as Headlight switch, European spec. Genuine VW...

    First off, I'd just like to preface this by saying I did already read a few threads, so have some idea of what the issue might be. Long story short, I was driving my 2000 VW Passat wagon with about 158k miles on it, my passenger got carsick on the highway before they could roll the window down...

    Hello, I was just wondering if my MAF sensor could possibly be bad? I bought a hitachi off of amazon. When I first turn my car on from a cold start, it's so nice and peppy. After it warms up, it bogs down in peppiness quite a bit. I don't have a check engine light surprisingly. It's been 25 days...

    A little while ago, the check engine light came on on my 02 Passat V6. The dealership couldn't find anything wrong with it but they ended up replacing some vacuum line that they said could have been the issue. Coincidently, my dad put regular gas in it around this same time. The check engine...

    Hey all. Was a few months ago since I was on here unfortunately. Back in Jan/Feb time the temp gauge was running low raising and lowing from 0-85C then dropping down to 50 then going back up to 85ish constantly. Appeared to be the lower Coolant Temp Sensor. Also the Intercooler had a hole in it...
