    After considerable thought, I decided to keep my TDI and have VW do their "fix" instead of taking the buyback. After all, I love my 2012 Passat and couldn't find anything I liked better--not even a newer Passat. At least not for what I'm willing to pay;) Problem is, between December 8, 2017...

    So I bought my Passat back in June for $500. Its a 2001 with the AUG 1.8T and it has 193,420 on the odometer. I drove it home (about 8 miles from town) back in June and it ran fantastic! The next day came and I hand washed her and got her a shined up and I went to start it and it started with...

    I have the classic P1296 error on my 2000 Passat V6, which I learned here was usually the coolant temperature sensor gone bad - a cheap part and a purportedly easy fix.

    I love my car, this is my first VW I'm never going back! :D Anyways, car has 86,000 mi, kept up on synthetic oil changes. Had a misfiring problem that would come and go for about a month until I could fix it. At first it would only lurch a little bit whenever I got under a quarter tank of gas...

Because of so much dirt in the Back area (Where the battery is) the drain got clogged, resulting in partially submerging the battery and other components till I cleared the drain. While clearing the drain, I found two plastic tubes. No I did not yank it, but...

    Hey guys, I have been browsing all of the different posts about the "Emissions Workshop" error and I thought I'd throw the symptoms out there in case somebody else has had this problem. It was 37 degrees this morning and my car started kind of roughly. I made it about 3 miles down the road and...

    I put a cone filter in my 1.8t and everything is fine. Then driving a few miles I get a Check Engine light and "Emissions Workshop" display. Is there an air/fuel mixture problem now that there is more air? I had a drop in K&N filter and everything was fine and working great. Maybe I should...

    I've had my B5 for about 2 months now and have managed to avoid the check engine light thus far(i figured it was inevitable but it was still nice to avoid). i got it two days ago, right off the bat in the morning when i first turned on the car. Within one minute of turning on the car, i get a...

    hello, as I drove my 2000 Passat Wagon (V6 30V) today, I noticed that it was 'kicking' while i was stopped on 'drive' at traffic lights or as i was on 'reverse'. y'know, kinda like it was jerking intermittently. i noticed that putting it on 'park' when i am at the light, seemed to stop it...

    Ive got a 00 Passat 1.8T and I got an "emissions workshop" code on the dash and my check engine light. I had this same thing happen at around 35K and had the MAF replaced under warranty. I now have 58K on my car and Im wondering if it can be the MAF again. What have you guys experienced in...

    Recent CEL/MIL Light & "Emissions Workshop" Message... Been searching up the ying-yang, a lot of old posts out there on this topic. However, was hoping maybe someone had a recent experience with this problem: 2000 GLS, 1.8T+Neuspeed 1.1 VBL w/Tip (~ 50k mls) Was on a 6 hr hike up to MI over...
