  1. Why can't I fill my brake reservoir all the way?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've had an ongoing issue with my brake reservoir ever since the first brake job I did. Simply put, it will only fill about halfway (to the seam where the top and bottom halves meet) and after that fluid just sits in the neck. This is only about halfway full and I like to keep my fluids more...

  3. painfully slow gasoline fill

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My younger son's 2000 S4 is a great car, except that it takes a long time to fill the gas tank, because the gas pump automatically shuts off unless one pumps gas either in bursts or in an extremely slow steady stream. We have cleaned and inspected the charcoal canister and been told the problem...

  7. Oil fill cap not sealing?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The oil fill cap on my B5 sedan (1.8T) seems to not seal against the cover. Whenever I pull it off, there's a good amount of oil right where the oil fill cap contacts the valve cover. Can the gasket alone be replaced or do I have to buy the whole cap assembly? Thanks.

    2000 v6 auto. Car has about 140k, and the transmission fluid (filter etc) were changed at about 120k, along with motor mounts (uro unfortunately). Recently, the car has been bucking at idle on the highway, and making the occasional clunk when reapplying power after a stop or slow down. Sort...
  9. Low coolant, fill or no fill

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys, my 2.8 atq has coolant about half inch under the minimum, sometimes it appears far less even after a few hrs sitting from a drive. I've had problems in the past from coolant leaks but I just got that fixed 3k ago from a full timing belt service at 73k miles. Was leaking from the water...

I figured that's about it and got in to leave. but the gauge said 3/4 full so I drove to another pump thinking the first pump...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As the title says. What is the recommended transmission oil for the 2003 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T AWM Sedan? I have been doing some research. The dealer said that the part number is G052911A2; which is the 75W-80. However Advance Auto, ECStuning, and other websites recommend the 75W-90. So if any...

  16. Can't fill up on that overpriced fuel... Not taking gas, pump kicks out.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys/gals, I got a question for you. One of our 1.8T B5.5 Passats doesn't want to be filled up with gas at the pump. Which would be totally fine if it would just run on hopes and dreams. It will take about a gallon or so of gas, but then the pump kicks out, then you do it a again and it'll...

  18. transmision fill through cooler line

    B5 Garage
    I was thinking of adding some tranny fluid through my trans cooler line at the radiator. I think one side goes through the pump and the return line just goes back to the sump. Anybody see any problems with this. I would use a bug sprayer pump and rubber hose with a couple of clamps.
