    I've got an 02 Passat GLX 4Mo Wagon. It has the Monsoon stereo (single DIN size), cassette player, with 6-disc changer in the boot. For about 8 months, the entire panel would flash for a few minutes before finally turning on and working as normal. By entire panel, I mean the LCD and the button...

    I am here to try and figure out why my B5 suddenly would not start! Searching has revealed little, but I will take another look Dave

    So, 2000 B5 with V6, 216,000 kms (135K miles) on the clock, has needed new front suspension control arms every 60,000 kms like clockwork. Last December, at 200,000 kms, the old familiar creaking and groaning came back, signalling the need for new control arms. My garage diagnosed only the...

    Been almost 4 months since performing a complete TB service with Blauparts kit for my 2002 AWM. Everything went smoothly till about 3 weeks ago when I started hearing a metallic rattle from the front of the engine. The sound was most noticable during moderate throttle 1900-2500RPM or between...

    I'm the original owner of a 2001 B5.5 V6 GLX 4 Motion. She has 102,600 miles and is 10 years old this month. Several months ago I noticed a small oil leak on the garage floor and smelled burning oil while driving. The local VW dealer changed the cam seals, valve cover gaskets ,etc but i still...

    I think my oil pump bolt died today. Strange enough it happened when I was parking my car at work. I am sure it could be something else but its near the mileage that if it didn't happen early in its life it would happen around now. About 65k miles on my 07 3.6L 4MO have brand new 2011 2.5SE...

    Alright everyone. 2001 B5 V6 5spd. My engine died not too long ago :banghead:, this is the SECOND engine that I've been through. I really don't want to get into it at this moment and will probably post a small rant explaining my situation later on. I recently picked up a 1998 2.0L 5spd jetta...

    The shortened version of a long, sad tale: I embarked from Pittsburgh on a month long nation-wide trip in my 02 Passat. Dropped $1600 (100% of my savings. sweet.) in tires, brakes, rotors, oil change and engine clean-up before leaving. 4 days into the trip the oil pressure light comes on. I was...

    So, I was sitting in my driveway (LUCKILY!!) after just driving home from the gym, and I was sitting in my car listening to a song that I liked on the radio before I got out. While doing this, I bumped my gas pedal and it felt REALLY loose, so, naturally, I though I'd inspect it with my...
