  1. 2002 Passat - What did I break? Changing oil, not oil related though.

    B5 Garage
    OK, so I had a meeting last Sunday morning and I promised I would go grocery shopping after, so I took the SUV. I come home to find that my dad had wanted to help me out and change my oil which I mean, gotta love Dad. Only problem was, he ****** my oil filter with a wrench or pair of pliers and...
  2. Finally did ICM delete and 2.0 FSI coilpack to my AEB

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had the parts sitting here for quite some time and finally just got under the hood and wired it all in. My only question at this point is what spark plugs should I use to take advantage of the 2.0 coil packs? I have a K04 turbo (Borg Warner) and APR stage 1 software, FMICm exhaust, etc, the...

  4. How bad did I fuck up?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Snapped two bolts on my valve cover because they didn't want to torque down. I had an inch pound torque wrench. Tried drilling one of them out, but the drill went in at an angle and messed up a side of the threads. Also, when I was attempting to punch the hole, the punch slid onto the girdle...
  5. Whoever did the last timing belt job goofed it I think. How do I fix it?

    B5 Garage
    Today I started the timing belt job on our 02 V6 Passat that we picked up last spring. I know it's had it changed previously but I'm not sure when, so doing it to be on the safe side. Here's my problem, I'm at the point where you set the crank at TDC and attach the cam locking bar. Well, one...
  6. Did I make a bad decision?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    2010 Passat 2.0T with 73K Miles So, I got on to the road, and accelerated a little strong but nothing too hard, to get up to speed in traffic. Immediately the check engine light started blinking so I let go of the gas and noticed the car sputtering at slower speeds and especially when stopped...
  7. Rough Idle - What did I do? Diesel sounds and squeaks - video link included

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    https://youtu.be/rbaN-pq86cs I recently picked up a decent running B5.5 Passat Wagon. I've done a couple maintenance items, with a few more to go. Over the weekend I swapped the three easy vacuum lines, but didn't secure them. That and the TSI coilpack/spark plug swap made a big difference...
  8. Did a heater core bypass...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    For some reason the tubes seem ultra hot sometimes, like melt the rubber hot. Also, I pinched a little out of the hole in the tube, but it seemed like a lot more kept dripping down. Snapped this photo. Little curious to what that hole is there for.
  9. Did heater core bypass. Hole in tube?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    For some reason this hole became in this tube. What's going on?
  10. Did I bugger the air bag?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I recently have done quite a bit of work on my 2000 1.8 AUG Passat Wagon. First was a replacement of all control arms, four new tires, and an alignment. Next I replaced most of the secondary air pump components and that's working fine now, code gone and passed DEQ. Then I replaced the cam...

    Three legged barstools are more sturdy than four legged barstools because there is always a plane that intersects the three points of a triangle, but the same cannot be said for the four points of a rectangle.
  13. 2006 3.6 4motion - what did i drain????

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I attempted to do my own oil change on this car for the first time and unfortunately drained some fluid that was NOT motor oil. After removing the belly pan, there was a drain pan with a plug on the driver's side of the engine. The plug has a torx (T25, I think). I got about 3 qts of some odd...
  14. ABS and ASR light came on the other day, what did I do?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As the title says, my ABS light and the ASR light came on the other day and stayed on. This has never happened before but I have a feeling that I may have dislodged something when I removed the bumper (to remove the headlights, stupid system but whatever). As far as bumper removal, I had to...
  15. Motor Mounts and more. Did I get the right stuff?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I recently received an order from FCP Euro. They seemed to be the cheapest option for me with their free shipping once everything totaled out. I just wanted to make sure that I got the right brands for the job as I am trying to avoid cheaper chinese parts. 2 Corteco Motor Mounts (Are these...
  16. What year did the Passat get CANBUS?

  17. What did you do to your B7 Passat today?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Always interesting to see what people do to their cars, make for some interesting discussion and conversation. Took it out of winter storage on Sunday, removed OEM wheels and installed summer ones. Out for a drive along St-Lawrence river.
  18. Did what dealer told me but it's still NO GOOD!

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion

    Car 2002 V6 FWD. 52K miles. Car had no pre-existing problems - just did the timing belt because of its age (actually had zero signs of aging), and did the water pump while there (Graf with dry paper gasket. Got everything buttoned up and refilled coolant. Idled car awhile and checked for...
