    B5 Garage
    Hi, I have a 2005 1.8t 4motion passat that I recently had a timing belt break on. I was cruising along smooth when suddenly the timing belt snapped and instantly bent all my valves. I got the thing home and pulled the head, did a valve job and got it back in without any major issues. When I...
  2. Can a crankcase vent valve for V6 be used in a 1.8T AWM?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This idiot guy has sent me a crankcase vent valve for V6 which is somewhat bigger than the one I have in my 2002 AWM. So the question is whether I can use these interchangeably or I must use the one that is specific to AWM :salute:

  6. crankcase breather pipe and housing breakage

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Started working on my EVAP/SAIP/Vacuum issues and found the crankcase breather pipe disintegrated. This left the copper ring stuck solid in the casing below.

  8. AZM Crankcase Vent Tube connector

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Cars usually have 2 holes in valve covers: one for air coming in from air box, another one for air going to intake manifold. What about Passat 1.8? One hole in valve cover for in and out? Who knows how round top PCV valve works? I read about it here, it didn't explain how it works. It seems like...

  16. Oil level in the crankcase and the pickup tube screen.

    B5 Garage
    Hello all, 98 1.8t, I put diesel fuel in the crankcase through the dipstick tube so that the pickup tube is completely submerged and the gunk on the pickup screen would settle on the bottom and drained out. How many quarts of gasoline would be enough to submerge the pickup screen but would...
