  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi, I'm new here. I used the Advanced Search but couldn't find a topic related to mine. I'm in the US (Indiana) and have a 2015 Limited Edition with the 2015 1.8L DI Turbo DOHC 4cyl engine. Back in October 2020, at 59.5K, my 6-speed Automatic Transmission failed and was replaced at the dealer...

    Hey guys, I’m slowly getting my B5.5 1.8T back to life. I replaced the camshaft seals a few weeks ago and I’m currently working on replacing the crankshaft seal. The car hasn’t been turned on yet. Now, two things: 1 - I’m suffering to take the 17-year old crank seal off of the engine. So tips...

    Hi, I am trying to save a 2001 Passat with the V6 motor. It has 475,000 km on it and really want to see it get to half a million kilometers. The crankshaft seal is broken so its literally throwing out oil. I have the front end off the car and see that the crankshaft bolt looks like it needs a...

    Doing the TB and CCT on 1.8, in my haste to get it done, since its in my driveway on blocks, "screw the neighbors" I say, my wife says the opposite, like anyone cares. I got hasty. I got all the timing marks set, started taking stuff off. The ONE thing I didn't do is break the crankshaft...

    I have some very useful Crankshaft Seal tools for the 1.8T motor. It will be a while (I hope!) before I need to use them again, so if somebody would like to borrow let me know. My location is New England USA (Boston - Vermont - New Hampshire, generally). Pickup is better, but shipping is...
  7. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello. The rear main crankshaft seal was replaced past Friday on 2010 Passat with DSG transmission. I haven't had a chance to drive the car until today (wife's car) and noticed a few things. 1. When car is in park and I push the gas pedal (quickly for a fraction of a second), the rpms go up to...

    Hello, 98' Passat 1.8t automatic Doing timing belt replacement. Realized the lower TB cover is covered with tar-like oily substance. Should I assume it is the crank seal leak? If so, should I replace the crank pinchbolt with new one? Thanks.

    Calling all 2.8 30v experts. I have a AHA out of a 1999 Audi A4 that I want yo use in a 2002 Passat. The problem is that the crankshafts are different on the transmission end. I would like to know if i can use the crankshaft out of the ATQ that is coming out of the Passat in the AHA. I have both...

    2000 GLS Wagon 2.8L (ATQ) H6 drive took out seven bolts, just spins in #8. My job to renew gaskets and seals - both sides - is stalled until I can get this out. Any good ideas? I guess I could take out the crankshaft bolt(!) but would rather leave it on (unless I see that the crankshaft seal...

    My 2005 B5 GLS wagon was what I thought to be a fender bender (search: BASH 2000 B5 Kombi). Replaced the radiator support, radiator, fan, fan clutch, headlamp and hood. After about 30 miles the car is now leaking a significant amount of oil...a small pool in my driveway everynight...

    I'd greatly appreciate opinions on this: I've replaced a few axle bolts over the years and generally followed the Bently Manual instructions to torque to 140 ft-lbs and then the additional half turn (180 degrees) after. But I usually would only do an additional 1/4 turn (90 degrees) because I...

    Can anybody help me with the location of the crankshaft position sensor on a 09 Passat Komfort? I have this picture, but I need some context (not sure where I am looking). Thanks. http://workshop-manuals.com/volkswag...age-192001.png

    Hello, I wish I can post that in a technical forum, but it won't let me start a topic. I have trouble trying to reach the metal crankshaft locking plug. I am currently at Step 11 in the Blauparts instruction. I believe the hexagonal nut is 10mm, because it fit the 10mm socket. When I put...

    This is a continuation of my earlier post about a bad oil leak. I was hoping the leak was caused by cold temperatures (mid-winter) but now that it is warmer, the leak is still there and I need to fix it. I'm fairly certain the leak is from the front crankshaft seal or as in Tomvw's case "Mine...

    Wondering if anyone removed the front crankshaft oil seal flange throughout their wrenching days. I have removed all the bolts, so technically just the sealant at the bottom would hold it in place right now. However.. it just doesn't budge. I even tried to pry on one of the exposed plate's...

    Doing my timing belt. Changed the VC gaskets Extremely shot, the spark plug wells were full of oil. Went to put on the TB tensioner roller and I discovered there were no threads in the hole. The lock tite or what ever the factory used caused the treads to come out with the bolt. Now the...
