    I have a 2004 Passat GLX V6 5spd. One thing I have noticed lately is that the engagement point of the clutch can vary, sometimes during the same drive. Normally, the clutch starts engaging 1.5-2 inches from the floor. But occasionally I notice it engaging much faster - like within .75-1 inch...

    I'm hearing a 1/2 second "shht" sound at around 2500-3000 rpms in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear when accelerating in my 2002 1.8t Passat stickshift. It almost sounds like some kind of valve or gate moving, like a sliding metallic solenoid actuating. During hard acceleration I don't necessarily hear...

    I am guessing it may be tires but am not sure, of course the boy picks a car out with 19 inch rims, and when we test drove it, did not seem to have a shake when under hard acceleration, but I can not be sure, the salesman, said he had the wheels rotated and oil changed when we picked up the...

    Hey guys. So, I just posted this in the Noob Section and then saw that I'm not supposed to ask for help in that section, so I am moving my post here to the B5 Garage. So, I've been lurking in here since I got my '04 Passat GLX in August and decided it was finally time to start posting since I...

    Hey guys. So, I've been lurking in here since I got my '04 Passat GLX in August and decided it was finally time to start posting since I have a question. I have searched the forum for information related to my question but I was unable to find anything. Anyways, over the weekend I did the basic...

    Morning All, just wanted to get some opinions on something I've been noticing lately. I have a 2000 Passat Wagon ATW 120k with APR tune, magnaflow catback. Usually at full throttle, Max boost around 16psi, I'm getting a slight miss. It's intermitted and not violent at all just doesn't feel quite...

    2003 1.8t awm. while doing a timing belt change, i measured 8 mm between roller arm and tensioner rod then i turned the roller with the an 8mm in the roller extending the rod too far. I took the tensioner off the car and I'm trying to push the hydraulic arm back down to insert the locking pin...

    Here is a video of what I'm experiencing during a cold start. Rough Idle, Misfire codes, as soon as the SAI system turns off everything evens out as you will see at the end of the video, also notice the weird sucking noise.

    Alright so I've been chasing this issue (extremely rough idle only when the SAI system is running) for awhile now and my car finally threw 4 codes during the warm up process. 3 of which were misfires, exactly what im feeling, and the fourth being a po411 (SAI incorrect flow). My N112 is...

    Last night I was changing the rotors and pads on my front brakes. When I was pushing back the piston some brake fluid came out in the piston cavity. I cleaned it out and continued. The brakes work well now and no more leaking so far detected. Has the piston O-ring damaged during push back or...

    I have a 2007 2.0 wagon .. for the last several months it has been making a squealing noise when braking (only during the final stopping stages, not when initially applied) and when turning right. It sounds like a belt whining. My first thought was the accessory belt tension, though it's weird...

    Hi All, I recently had my 2004 Passat 1.9 TDI automatic in for a minor service and CV boot replacement on both sides. Since I have had the car back I have noticed an intermittent issue whereby if I take my foot off the pedal and let the engine do the slowing down it isn't smooth like it used to...

    I have spent a long time on many threads trying to get to the bottom of my cars issue. 2001 1.8T FWD AWM. Whenever i take a long drive and am going 55 mph for a while then have to slow for a stop sign it shutters at 1500 rpm or 35 mph approximately. it isnt as bad if i brake at a shorter...

    Hi my 2003 Passat 1.8t FWD has been making a sound that has me a little concerned, not too concerned because it's been doing it for almost a year but it does seem to be getting worse. When I decelerate I hear a humming or almost vibrating sound like I was traveling over tiny speed bumps that are...

    I read in the forum about the oil cooler seal/gasket/o-ring failing during cold weather. My 2000 Passat V6 leaked last winter when it was really cold in Minnesota but then it warmed up and the engine didn't leak again until this winter when it got very cold again. I'm planning to replace the...

    Hi Guys, Thanks for this great forum. I have a 2007 VW passat tdi 1.9 diesel car. It's a great car and I love driving it in summer. But when winter hits getting the heating on time is a nightmare. It takes anything between 10-15 minutes of driving to get the engine to heat up to 60 and atleast...

    While getting help with this Timing Belt/ Power steering pump replacement, I was given some advice from Tomvw... Can someone explain the process here please? I don't doubt that it's not necessary, but I am not understanding why, with my crank in place and the cam bar on, the sprockets need to...
