  1. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My car was only giving heat on driver side, so the mechanic shop told me that the heather core probably needed too be changed. So I changed it, but now I have no heat on driver side, it only comes heat out on the passenger side. Does anyone have any experience with it? Its a 2.0 diesel bluemotion

    Hello everyone, I had a quick look around and can see my Passat is a B6 according to dates, July 2007 1.9L diesel which is meant to be a better engine than the 2.0L. It is the nicest car I have had and with some help from you guys I hope to keep it going for a long time to come. I can also share...
  3. B6 Garage
    My B6 2.0 TDI stopped working over the weekend. The car used to shake a little when I started it but nothing crazy, and starting wasn't especially difficult. Getting back from the shops I turned the car off after a 15 min drive home, got the shopping out and then tried to start the car again to...

    I have a lot of Liqui Moly 5w40 Diesel synthetic left from when my 2005 Jetta TDI was working. Long story short, it was the worst cat I've ever owned. Liqui Moly is expensive stuff and I don't want to waste it. Will it work in my 2003 Passat 1.8T? What is different about the diesel 5w40...

    The Bentley manual recommends using 5w40 or 10w40 motor oil. I went to my local auto parts store and the only 5w40 oil they sold was Shell Rotella T6 Full Synthetic, so I used that when I changed my oil. At the time I didn't notice the fine print on the label saying it was heavy duty Diesel...

    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...

    Hi, I've been struggling to find a full FIS petrol cluster for my B5 Passat. So I am contemplating using a full FIS diesel cluster instead as I have read it is possible with some modifications. So I wanted to ask if anyone can provide me with any guidance on performing this? I believe it may...
