  1. Fuel pressure not high enough to start-up the car

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello everyone! I have a 2002 vw passat 1.8t For some reason, the pressure in the fuel rail doesn't stay high enough to re-start the car back up within a reasonable crank-time. I know 100% its a fuel pressure problem. Things I replaced: CTS, spark plugs, fuel filter, and cleaned my fuel...
  2. Front brake pads, so many choices for daily driver....what's good enough?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know this is so lame, why doesn't he just use PBR / EBC / Akebono and call it a day? 2004 GLS FWD automatic I don't drive the car much myself, my 18 year old son does and his priority is the sound system. I replaced the original Akebono pads about 2 years ago and put in TRW and now the TRW...
  3. Will a 205/70/15 tire fit on a stock steel 195/65/15 rim?? Enough clearance?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Have a stock B5.5 wagon. Am I able to fit 205/70/15s where there is currently 195/65/15s? Would there be any issue with clearance?
  4. New Brake Pads/Rotors - Calipers not Enough Room?

    B5 Garage
    Maybe I am doing something wrong, but it seems like I cannot compress the front brake calipers enough to get them over the new brakepads and rotors. I bought the rotors and brakepads as a kit and they are definitely the right ones. I noticed some rusting around the end of the brake piston...
  5. ABS sensor replaced, VAG COM reading "sporadic open circuit", is it not in enough?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    ABS sensor replaced, VAG COM reading "sporadic open circuit", is it not in enough? 2004 Passat (GLX 4Motion, if it matters). I had a recurrent situation where the ABS light went on and I got that "crunch" noise. Intermittent - the next time driven, the light would be off, then after five or six...
  6. ABS sensor replaced, getting "open circuit" VAG COM, is it not in enough?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2004 Passat (GLX 4Motion, if it matters). I had a recurrent situation where the ABS light went on and I got that "crunch" noise. Intermittent - the next time driven, the light would be off, then after five or six miles "crunch" and the ABS would light. I put it on my handheld VAG COM reader, and...

  9. Old enough to know better

    Off-Topic Forum
    I just pulled into the gas station to grab a drink and some 20-something with a new black Corvette looked my Passat over and rolled his eyes and shook his head. Made me realize that I'm 46 years old and the best I can afford is a 9-year-old car with 202,000 miles. Rust spots, trim pieces funked...
  10. Small Update - Not low enough? (Pic Heavy)

    The Showroom
    I bought some used Nex coil-overs off of a fellow forum member and I have to say I am pleased with them. They may not be the best quality coil-overs out there but they do the job and they were a fun project too say the least (First time installing coil-overs). I don't have a skid plate currently...
  11. Brakes don't have enough boost power

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been trying to diagnose the intermittant boost power in my wifes 1.8T. It mainly happens when it's cold, slushy and wet out. It's usually pretty good, but makes driving this car tough as you never know if you have full brake boost or not. I've checked a lot of things but still can't...

  13. B5 Tie rod end not long enough?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a B5 2000 Passat - V6 FWD. My mechanic recently told me I needed my TRE outer replaced so I got a replacement part from ECS Tuning: Link The mechanic is claiming this part is too short. He says the one on my Passat is around 9" in length and this one is 7". Now I am pretty savvy being a...
  14. Enough of this ABS crap already.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Soon I'm just going to rip it out lol. Changed the F/R bearing, has a ABS Sensor code ever since. I pulled it out, and it was filthy and wet fluid was on it on top of a layer of old gunk. Cleaned it with heavy duty paper towels, didn't even need to use cleaner. Light goes off, and when I...
  15. Is a mildly leaking VCG enough to cause the dreaded CCA noise at idle?

    B5 Garage
    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...

  17. 98 B5 1.8T Automatic new battery - wont turn over enough to start???

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    1998 B5 1.8T automatic, I put the key into the ignition and turn it to light up the dash and wait for it to cycle. When I hit the ignition to start it, it is like the starter does not have enough energy to turn the engine over. You can hear the starter trying to turn the engine over and it...

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I plan on getting air ride suspension put on my Passat B5. I found a set of 18x9.5" Wheels that have an offset of +20. Would that be too far out or just perfect for my Stance Application Im going for? Sent from my iPhone using AutoGuide.com Free App

    Does that count as cheating? My head is still reeling from a blissful encounter and an equally enjoyable back door finale, but I am whacked. So I'll fill in the details tomorrow. It will be worth the wait. ;) Sent from my Verizon Wireless iPhone 4S
  20. I am doing the timing belt service; I am good enough, smart enough

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    and doggone it, I think I can do it! Seems to be some great write ups here and I know if and when I run into issues, I'll probably get a prompt response from you experts. I just wanted to start this in case of problems, successes, or calamities. Got the AWM Blau Parts timing kit and will...
