    Ok I am working on my sister's 2013 Passat 2.5, it keeps draining the battery. I think I have it narrowed down to one of the fuses under the hood but I can't find anything online that tells me what the fuses control. It is a green 30 amp fuse at the bottom of the first row

    Hi guys! I have a 2003 Passat Wagon GLX V6 Automatic (Tiptronic). It appears to have a slow transmission fluid leak on the passenger side, just in front of the transmission pan. From what I've read, this may be coming from a bad seal in the differential, which has gear oil in it? I am almost...

    Hello Everyone, Last Friday I bought an automatic 1.8 Turbo Sport Estate. I'm not quite sure how VW managed to name it Sport though. It drives beautifully and I love it apart from a battery drain fault that I can't fathom out. The car's nearly 17 years old but has a documented 68000 miles and...

    Hi Guys, I had my ECU flashed years ago and I can't remember who did it (APR, GIAC, etc) or locate the receipt. Can I look in VAG-COM somewhere to figure it out? I'm about to install a K04 so it would be great to see if I could get a discount on the updated software. Thank you!

    Here the back ground on my 2001 passat 1.8T, engine code aug, tranmission code efp. I bought this car a few months ago, need some work, tranmission was messed up and the oil light was coming on, but did run.

    Help! The nice guys at Wheel Works replaced our 2002 B5 front shocks (coil overs), left half shaft, and tires. One noise introduced after the work is an annoying “clunk” that happens over light bumps and a creak/groan sound upon turning the steering in either direction. I’ve checked ball...

    I went to change out my spark plugs this evening, and discovered that 3 out of the 4 plug wells are so filled with oil I can barely see the tip of the plug; frankly I'm surprised the engine still works. I guess oil isn't particularly conductive? I have a small leak out the rear corner, but...

    Ever since putting the engine back together, and replacing the TB, thermo, water pump etc, my cars radiator still stays ice cold. This is a 2000 v6 2.8, I've tried bleeding it from heater core, both bleed screws one by ignition coil, the other under the reservoir, and using the rad rain plug...

    Have a 2008 Passat 2.0T with 76k. From a cold start (morning), starts fine and drives ok, but when i got to about 45-55 cruising speed it was really rough. Cant really tell if its transmission or engine. When the car warms up 10-15 min, it rides smooth. Had a few different check engine...
