    so if i have a coil pack that's installed in my Passat with a completely different firing order than what its suppose to be, and i am getting miss fire codes, would that mean that the coil pack is the wrong one and that its affecting the performance of my car. the firing order that's stamped on...

    I still have my 1999 V6 passat, which I bought new 18 years ago. Because my commute for many years was only 4 miles, the car has only 130,000 miles. I'm in the middle of trying to replace the starter, which refused to budge after several months spent without starting (story below). I removed...

    Hi, I have a 2001 Passat B5, and I've performed the double din conversion. However, when I install my original hazard and rear demister switches, I find they are a very tight fit and actually so much so that they get stuck on/off when pressed. I've tried two different double din center frame...

    Hi everyone, I thought I would share what I learned while installing an aftermarket cruise control with totally nonsense-colored cables. It was a pain in the a** to install it for the first time, because I found a diagram which had my cable colors but it was wrong. So the second time I took my...

    Lets just say one night at a buddy's bonfire we had a little bit of liquid encouragement. Reverse donuts sounded like a good idea, well after about 3 spins around on slick wet dirt, heard a loud and nasty pop amongst other viscious noises, and a free rev. Reverse was absolutely grenaded. So, I...

    2001 Passat V6 2.8 4 Motion Does anyone have a diagram or any information that would show and/or tell information on the 4 throttle Body bolts? I've picked up from bits of info here and there that one of the 4 bolts is a different size? 3 or them have a 5mm Allen head?, and the 4th one...

    I just purchased a 1999 Passat Wagon. While running around the pick n pull, I found a really clean looking sedan interior. I don't want the bottom half of the seat only the top. That being said, has anyone tried to swap the top of the sedan into a wagon? I think the cup holder would look really...

    Hi! So i got my 2006 B6 a while ago and it seems to work perfectly other than what seems like an electronic problem. The EPB does engage and disengage like it should but it still gives a fault in the vehicle status and blinks both the buttons and the gauges lights. Sometimes the park brake light...

    Okay, so this topic is normally beat to death across all kinds of forums, but this one I think requires a bit more thought and information. P1539 is the vacuum vent valve switch, so i went cheap and got 3 from the junk yard on the thought that its highly unlikely that they are all bad. After...

    I am trying to figure out why the mileage is always better on the way back from Cincinnati to Columbus at night (32.4) vs going down in the daytime (28.8). I don't think Cinci is uphill all the way from here! When I am on my way down there, it is daytime and hot. The AC is on both ways, but I...

    Having trouble finding out if the AEB turbo is the same as the APU turbo Anyone know of any differences or is it just a direct bolt on. For reference I have the APU engine, and as far as I can find the only difference is smaller intake ports and DBW throttle, no mention of turbo differences...

    So i just read another thread on here relating to the 1.8T Engines and the various engine codes associated with them. A friend has a 2001, Passat B5 (Not B5.5) with the 1.8 Turbo engine. Now i was readind and there appears to be no Actual set specification. There seems to be quite a few...

    When I was purchasing our new Passat I had trouble locating our car model using American model designations, I know with Hyundai's cars imported to Canada, though slightly more expensive, there were more features on the Canadian models. I'll provide a link below, but here are our model choices...

    I came across this with a friend's car. The symptom was that they couldn't fill up the car as the gas pump keeps clicking off. After several attempts to fix this mostly involving fuel and evap system diagnosis, he was ready to give up. Running output tests on the instrument cluster showed that...
