  2. Engine 'flutter' / hesitation, two codes, and the strangest fuel filling experience

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings everyone, Last week I was driving home from work, got off the freeway, and was sitting in traffic at a red light. The engine idle dipped to a near stall for just a moment, and then recovered. Car drove normally for a bit... And then had a pretty hard hesitation while going around a...
  3. Terrible boost flutter and cuts out sometimes

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I have a 98 AEB K04 passat. I am having a hard time figuring out why my boost flutters. It will do it only under load when the rpms are lower (It won't do it when you are accelerating quicky and rpms are high-- most likely cause the wastegate is fully closed when under hard acceleration)...
  4. boost flutter KO4

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I have a 98 AEB KO4 turbo, giac tuned (5bar fpr) car. The car pulls well, however, I noticed that sometimes the boost will flutter. It seems to only do it when I mash the gas pedal and I am in the wrong gear. As an example, say I was in 3rd gear going 30miles per hour then step on the peddle...

  9. Flutter noise when car is started?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been noticing that when I start my car and shift into drive or reverse, I hear a high pitched fluttering noise. It will stick around for a little bit, and you can hear it as the RPMs rise when I drive off, and then it usually disappears, but I've been noticing that it happens almost every...

    Does anyone else get a loud fluttering, helicopter-like sound with the moonroof open (slid back) above 30 miles per hour? Can anything be done about it? My headliner was recently replaced by the dealer due to a leak.
