    I have recently acquired a 2000 Passat 1.8t 5-spd manual with 128k that has spent some time on the east coast (corrosion) and has not been well maintained in general. There is a roaring/whirring noise from the front end that I am trying to diagnose, I’d say it sounds to be coming from the...

    So, I removed both axles a few days ago and switched out the outer CV joints and re-booted them. Great info on here about this! After I got the driver's (left) side axle in I noticed that I had broke a sensor just in and up from the transmission flange. This happened because I removed and...

    i have a 98 1.8t automatic passat, recently started whineing from the front end, there is also a slight vibration sometimes, it starts at about 30 kmph, sounds like coming from the left front side, when driving around a right hand curve in the road the noise silences, it is present when going...

    I was looking for some mod ideas for the near future :wrench: and stumbled upon a drivetrain stabilizer made by AWE-tuning. As anyone tried one? Benefits/ noticeable differences? Thanks PW! :thumbup: http://www.Urotuning.com/AWE-Tuning-Drive-Train-Stabilizer-p/awe_dts.htm

    Cross poster here: 2000 A4 2.8L with 5 speed manual, Quattro, and 196,000 miles. My car has developed a disturbing behavior. I notice it most often going up our steep driveway, but it’s there when I’m working my way up through the gears on flat roads as well. The car seems to slip for a...

    Hello all, I looked through some of the forums but did not find what I was looking for. I am hoping some of you experts can help. I just picked up a 2000 Passat GLS with a broken timing belt. It has 230K miles on it so I am just thinking of getting a motor and tranny from a junk yard where I...

    I've recently purchased a 2005 1.8T 4motion and noticed there is a noise that happens each time I first start driving the car. It sounds somewhat like to metal peices coming together, much like excess play in a joint. However, the odd thing is it only happens once. The first time I start the...

    I have a totalled 2003 1.8T 5 speed totalled. There is a 2002 for sale for $500. 1.8T auto. How hard would it be to put my engine and transmission into the 2002? How many hours would this take? I have changed timing belts and have general hand tools. RIck

    the car in question is a B5 A4 Avant, 2.8L V6, tiptronic tranny. about 170K miles on it. I have a clunk that occurs in the drivetrain, and it seems to occur mostly at off-throttle. the car isn't driven hard, so when it occurs, it seems to be just as you are getting off the highway and just go...

    Jay, Urlik, Steve, Scott, Kathy, I know this probably needs to be somewhere else (AA?) but I'm looking for maximum eyeballs ASAP... Background: - 2000 Ram 1500 2WD, 5.9l/46RE auto, 137,000 miles - Trans was rebuilt at 109,000 by a local, highly reputable builder (I was in on the entire rebuild...

    Tiptronic Trans issue? Nope looks like snub and MMs. My 2000 V6 Wagon has been having some problems over the past couple of weeks. Whenever we start out from a stop the trans seems to have trouble engaging. It engages hard with an audible clunk. We have had to really baby her off of the line...

    ....because whoretex is a waste of DNA. 03 6spd VR6. Daily driving doesn't do it, but..... When I get on it and push the rpm's about 4.5k or higher, I grind going into third. Clutch all the way in, yes, push from 2nd to 3rd and I get a split second grind as I push into 3rd and it's the only...

    Hello all. I just want to share with the community my findings. My car has a fair amount of drivetrain lash. It clunks (more of a dry "clook") when letting go of the gas and then re-applying power, or when coasting and then braking at a stop light, when the trans down shifts to first gear...
