  3. Have a few questions on a 2004 Passat 1.8t AWM engine

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I normally drive an 02 TDI Jetta, but recently bid on an online auction for a 2004 Passat with AWM 1.8t gas engine. It was advertised as running, driving, stopping condition. Got it for $750.00 which i thought was great. Drove to Phoenix to pick it up and it had a bad miss at idle which...
  4. Ticking/clicking in the 1st few Minutes of Driving.

    B5 Garage
    99 1.8T A/T Only makes this sound for the first few minutes of driving. If I start the car and give it gas in park or neutral it doesn't not make any noise. It only makes the noise under acceleration for the first few minutes. Originally I thought valves or cam chain tensioner, but now I'm...
  5. A few question from a serious newb.. 2015 1.8 TSI

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I just purchased a used 2015 1.8 TSI black Passat with 23K miles. Drives like a new car and I absolutely love it! I've had a 99 Passat, an 03 Passat, and an 06 GTI. To me, there's nothing like a VW. I was a little worried about an automatic 1.8T in such a big car, but it does very well. I have...
