    I've had my new (used) 2001 4mo V6 wagon for about a month now. It's got 72K miles. It flashed a CEL shortly after I took possession. Threw a bunch of codes: P0150, P1411, P0130, P0300, P0301, P0305, P0303, P0306, P0304. A trusted indy gave it the once over, and replaced three crankcase vent...

    Well boys and girls, I didn't count on it happening but I've just ordered a GT28 clone. Jesse from had it kicking around and wanted to get rid of it and gave me a price I couldn't refuse. He's not 100% sure if it's a BB or journal bearing. However based on the play in the shaft...

    I was recently in for service and mentioned to the tech to look around for any oil leaks since the car went from using a negligible amount of Mobil 1 0w-40 between changes to about a quart in 5,000 miles. He noticed a little seepage around the valve cover gasket near the front passenger side...

    i've noticed that when i turn hard to the right at slow speeds (i.e. turning right from a stop light, into a parking spot, etc.) i seem to feel and hear a soft popping sound. could this be because of low power steering fluid?

    Okay, this started with a CEL which gave me 01039 (Coolant temp sensor bad). So I goto to the VW dealer nearby (Honolulu btw), and they give me what they think i need. Part number 059 919 501. When i get back home and tear into my engine i pull out the old temp sensor and that's when the...

    Ok, searched and didnt find much. Apparently there is either now faulty sensor or a bad cable somewhere going to my speedometer. Is it an easy fix, are there fuses that i dont know about (not in the door cubby?). Is this a part that is prone to failure? It hits the shop tomorrow morning...

    My dad got me a 99 v6 fwd in july from a seemingly sketchy dealer (very small dealer) but the price was very welcoming so he got it. I love the car and its great improvement over my 92 bonneville but there are so many small things that seem wrong with it....and some bigger things when i noticed...

    I was just curious how many people on here with their modded cars drop the summer wheels/tires and drive their B5 all year round?? I just bought my Passat in April so i havn't had it for the snow yet. I've got an 01 1.8T with a stick shift and i wondered how good they are in the snow. I had a...
