    Hello Passatforum members, my 2003 Passat GLX 4WD is making a horrible clicking/cracking noise when I turn left. I attached YouTube link to the sound. Is this car still safe to drive ? I am planning a trip up to Duluth, MN next week. Thanks in advance

    Hello from freezing cold Minnesota, above you can find the link for a video of the problem I currently have. Actually, it’s been going on for about a year now. After I start the car, there’s smoke coming out of the Engine. Do you know what that could be ? Is it dangerous ? The car drives well...

I have a ODB-II tool with charting logs during driving on my smartphone, so I will attach the logs: Logs are collected over about 20 minutes trip with mixed highway and citi streets. Top chart...

    Currently non-OP in California. Needs a battery, valve cover gaskets and PCV/vacuum lines would be good idea. I've owned and maintained since 2006. It ran fine when I last parked it but I wanted to get the valve covers and PCV done since it was going through oil. Wound up with an A4 and never...

    Hello All, I have an 02 Passat GLX Wagon with some transmission problems. Here is the background. It has the tiptronic auto trans.238,000 miles, V6. The problem is very unusual. The original problem was that the trans (I think) went into limp home mode. Park, Reverse, Neutral all work well but...

Engine has 156K, 1st timing belt change @ 81000, was planning on the next one at 160,000, so decided to get new vehicle. On the ride back from purchase, belt popped. Don't know if it's bad belt...

    Can anyone tell me how far away from the ring the sensor is supposed to sit? or how much space there should be (exposed silver part)? I had swapped the ABS/WSS and now I have the ABS kick on at the very end of braking......which from what anyone has told me has to do with the sensor being too...

    Well guys I'm at my wits end with this no fuel problem. I checked fuse 28 good, Read some where here if you get a blink on your test light at 28 when cranking that means everything upstream good. I had no sign of it trying to run at the pump so I replaced it still no fuel. I 'm trying to get at...

    I bought this car (second 2003 GLX 2.8 [typo in title and can’t change] wagon) last year with 90k miles. It’s run well, but has been using oil. I just changed my oil last week and have heard a loud clunky sound twice when trying to start. It’s a horrible sound, but then the car starts easily the...

    I'm wondering how rare of a vehicle is this? I have a front wheel drive version.

    I'm getting a P0431 code. The car has 112k miles and all four sensors are original. I'm sure they are long overdue for a change. I use an app on my phone and I can show the 4 sensors on individual graphs. The graphs show the pre-cat B1S1 & B2S1 voltage moving from a .i to .9v. If I understand...

    Car turns over but won't start after running fine the day before, so I figured the 1st thing I'd check is that the fuel pump is getting power. Except I'm not seeing what I see in every YouTube video and other posts on this forum. There should be an access cover for it behind the passenger side...

    Greetings! I searched on this topic, but didn't get any good answers, so I thought I'd start a thread. The basics: 2003 GLX 4Motion Wagon, automatic transmission. The question: The wood trim on the inside door handle came off in my hand the other night. Any guidance on the correct adhesive...

    Hi everyone, I found this site while looking for info on how to bleed my cooling system on my 03 2.8L Wagon. I did the heater core (that was :banghead: by itself) and now I can't get the system to bleed properly. I have read the various posts with instructions, which I have followed (taking...

    Symptoms: On a road trip, my dashboard temperature gauge wasn't coming up to normal mid-dial 190 degrees F. It was fluctuating at lower temps. I could still get adequate heat in the car, but I might have had to set the temperature higher than usual. A short time later I got a Check Engine...
