    OK Guys, it looks like my turn to chase down some ignition blues. I searched the info. base and most others had these symptoms after major work like from dash or heater core replacements, but I haven't gone there. My symptom is turn the key (usually after rain event), no lights on dash, and...

A great car and great transportation,:driving: however, just recently the #14 fuse has started to blow. At first, it was every now and again and...

    Hi everyone! I've read over some of the older posts in the forum, but I'm not too great with engine work yet. My MIL has been on since I replaced the breather hose underneath the engine ('99 AEB-the bottom of the hose was essentially gone). Below are some of the VCDS readings I've gotten and...

    Hi Again Like i said in my original post I haven't had the car long and bought it with a flooded ccm. Replaced this, however looks like the part number is slightly wrong as I am still missing some functionality i.e. power windows, mirrors, fobs etc. Anyway chasing that up to get another ccm...

    So I'm getting ready for the lovely PA State Inspection and she (2005 4motion wagon 1.8t, 156K) decides to throw a P0420 at me, was intermittent and now it just won't go away. So Ross Tech says: 16804/P0420/001056 - Catalyst System; Bank 1: Efficiency Below Threshold Possible Causes Leakage...

    Finally got a chance to try to track down this oil leak (car has been sitting so it hasn't been out of use). 2005 GLS 4Motion Wagon, 1.8T. Finished head replacement back in June due to head crack causing coolant in the oil. Entire top end is essentially new/redone, PCV system, the works. 4...

    The car is a 2004 1.8T with 106,000 miles. I have read several of the threads on sludge & low oil pressure "STOP" light here since my light came on a couple days ago. I checked the oil, which was low, added oil, started to drive again, and the oil pressure warning came on again right away, so...

  13. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey guys, looks like another proud owner of a car with the low oil pressure warning. 07 Passat 2.0T, light came on after a hard left turn onto my road, coasted about half a mile home and shut it off. It's been in the driveway since, I refuse to drive it anywhere because I don't want to screw...
  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all! I've been doing a bunch of reading on here about the System too lean messages. Most of the issues seem to happen on the 1.8T, but I've got the v6. I keep reading that when you have both of those codes, that it is either MAF, 02 sensors or PCV leak. I haven't looked at the o2...

    I've used M1 0W-40 since first OC at around 3k. My 03 B5.5 1.8T now has about 95k on it and recently noticed the dreaded CCA dieseling at idle which goes away above 1200 RPM so seems like its due to low oil pressure and not a broken CCA. I know my VCG is leaking since plug 1 had some small...

    I picked up a 99 1.8t a few months back as a backup car and it always ran fine. I started it up yesterday to move it around and when I was about to shut it off I got the flashing oil light on my dash. I shut it down and checked the oil level and it was fine, but I did notice that there was a...
