    B5 Garage
    Hi folks, My 2002 1.8T threw a CEL and the code read p0171. Likely problems for this too lean fuel mixture are described as vacuum leaks or fuel filter. Well, the fuel filter is very old and has lots of miles so I bought one and will change that out, but as far as vacuum leaks I'm just not...

    I have tried seaching all the wheel bearing threads but not one of them answers my question. How do you determine if you have the 82mm front bearing or the 75mm without pulling everything apart?

  7. Determining Engine Code

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    First off, I did try to search... but it seems any time I search on "engine code", the search blows up. And you can't search on 3-letter words such as AEB and AWT. Dunno why... I can search on other things (sometimes...) I'd like to know what kind of 1.8T engine I have (2005 1.8T Manual...
