    New Member Introductions
    Hi, my 2004 1.8t faults are showing a P0441 fault and a loose gas cap indicator. I have reset the P0441 and replaced the gas cap but both of them come back on intermittently.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey all, I have 2009 VW Passat 2.0 TSI with 130,000 miles. Couple of weeks ago I went to a dealership to replace a fuel pump control module (nothing bad with it, just to perform the recall). The very same day I noticed that my car started consuming a lot more gas than it used to. My combined...

    Let me start off by saying I love the car, but the person I bought it from was a total liar.

Now to the current...

  13. No power to fuel pump after running out of gas and refueling

    New Member Introductions
    04 GLS 1.8T ran perfectly until I ran out of gas. Refueled, no start. I replaced fuel pump, tested relay 372 behind cabin fuseblock. All fuses in fuseblock good. It cranks, but no power to fuel pump. There is power to the breaker panel where 372 is mounted, and 372 bench tests good. This must be...

    Some of you may remember last week's installment of "how the Passat turns", I had to diagnose my wife's fuel pump from home while she was 250 miles away at in-laws and then drove down to replace it. Pump is working fine but I now have a fuel leak somewhere and an P0422 EVAP code for "small...

    Hello all, (I think I posted this in a wrong thread so I am posting here. Pardon me!) I did a timing belt change about 4000miles ago.
