  1. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Happy new year, everyone. I was a proud owner of two Passat cars: the first is a B5 2.8 Manual, 1999, owned from 2005 - 2007, and the second is a B6 2.0T Automatic, owned from 2009 to 2020. I fully enjoyed both of them. I have made my experience with the B6 into two videos and hopefully they...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    This noise starts only after the engine has warmed up, and not when cold...There is no performance loss, no vibrations - just a loud diesel-like rattling and clacking that's noticeable at idle when stopped. The noise almost disappears if you barely hold the accelerator to keep revs around 1000...
  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The only way i can think to describe what i'm hearing is that my engine currently sounds like when a kid puts a playing card in their bike spokes to make the motorcycle sound. And, it's loud. While in the driveway, it happens at all RPMs. When on the road, it seems to go away after 2000 RPMs (or...

  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all - My poor girl (2003 1.8t Passat wagon - manual) has been making this noise for a while now (at least 3). Initially, it only occurred right when I started her up, and then only when I was accelerating between 1st and 3rd gear (and THEN only if I was accelerating kinda hard, almost enough...

    Hi My petrol 2 litre 2002 Passat has a nasty rasp/rattle as you accelerate but goes when you back off, much worse at cold but still can be heard when hot. Its seems to do it when under load rather than if you just rev it up, or at least I can't hear it. Sounds really bad at times. Any ideas...
  7. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My Passat has developed a whining noise similar to a power steering pump noise but I checked that out and it is operating normally. It sounds like it is louder to the rear of the engine but is not making the normal ratcheting noise like the cam chain tensioner would make. Please check out this...
  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Loud engine/exhaust noise started months (maybe even a year ago), although at that time it only happened at highway speeds, and then only when the car was banking to the right. If i then turned to bank left, the loud noise dissapeared. Now, the loud noise is even louder, and it is pretty much...

    1999 Passat Tip AEB 1.8t 182k miles Started hearing an odd groaning/squealing/fluttering sound recently from under the hood. Its usually not that noticeable until you turn off the engine, then you hear it really well for about 1.5 seconds as it "winds down" kinda like a pulley coming to a stop...
