  2. Does anyone have a how-to for installing an actual oil pressure gauge on AUG 1.8T?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all. It has been a long time since I have posted on this forum regarding my 01 Passat. Recently, due to oil pressure issues, I have pulled the oil pan, installed a new pump and cleaned the pickup tube out, replaced the windage tray and also replaced the timing chain tensioner. After all...
  3. Have you Changed the Heater Core the "Fast" Way?

    B5 Garage
    Have a 2003 1.8t with an AT. Wanting to change the heater core by pulling the dash out as a complete unit (the fast way). I have done this before and it worked great. But this time I am stuck. I have done everything on the youtube video except removing the nut from the wiper mechanism (I...
  4. Have a few questions on a 2004 Passat 1.8t AWM engine

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I normally drive an 02 TDI Jetta, but recently bid on an online auction for a 2004 Passat with AWM 1.8t gas engine. It was advertised as running, driving, stopping condition. Got it for $750.00 which i thought was great. Drove to Phoenix to pick it up and it had a bad miss at idle which...
  5. What Transmission Do I have?

    B6 Garage
    I have a 2007 2.0T wagon with the 6 speed auto. What transmission do I have? 09G? I see tons of info out there but I am not confident I have the correct info. It shifts hard from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd in addition to slipping from 5th into 6th. Thanks - Mike
  6. Original motor/tranny mounts have to be bad by 180k, right?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My '03 1.8T 5M, w/Giac 1.3 bar ECU since ~40k, now has 180k. No barney blood. No excessive engine vibration at idle, but its not like new either. Shifts are a bit clunky and hard to make smoothly (which I was convinced was DMF failure since that's original also), especially in low gears. I...

  9. Oil Pressure Saga Continues - Now I have Intermittent Issues

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Been dealing with my son's Passat low oil pressure issues for several years now. It all started with an exploding CCT that shredded the valve cover. New CCT, new valve cover, pulled oil pan and cleaned pickup and replaced oil pump and installed oil pressure gauge to monitor pressure which was...
  10. Hello. And thank you for letting me join you. I have a couple of questions

    New Member Introductions
    I am new to the site and would like some help with a couple of what might seem like silly questions. Question 1 I have a 2014 VW Passat 1.6 diesel Bluemotion estate and don't know if it is a B4 B5 B6 and so on. Question 2 Can any one tell me what fuses control the interior lights and the...
  11. Have interm. starting and running issues, need help.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Did a few searches and came up empty. I have a '03 2.8 4Motion. Have had a check engine light since day 1 and got tired of fixing it so just ignore the light. It now has driveability issues which makes it so the wife won't drive it. Climate control issues are what started it, but now it...
  12. 2.8L 30V appears to have bent valves

    B5 Garage
    I went to start it the other day, it cranked a couple time & I thought it started, but was quiet when I let off the key. Cranked again & it sounded like no compression & starter running fast or starter not engaging.(it was engaging) Checked timing belt, it is on and cams are in time. The odd...
  13. Should have joined earlier + no start

    New Member Introductions
    I've been looking through the site. It has the potential to be very useful. I should have joined long ago. I think that this is not the place to post my current problem. However, I will mention it, and continue looking through posts to find possible answers. My 1999 (B5) Passat does not...
  14. Heated mirrors have never worked

    B5 Garage
    On my 2000 GLS the heated mirrors have never worked in the four years I've owned it. Is it as simple as replacing a fuse? Should a light come on when the heater is activated by centering the mirror adjuster knob and pushing it aft? Beyond feeling the mirror, how do you know it's on?
  15. Does the 1999 V6 thermostat have one or two orings?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This deserved a separate thread because AndreasPassat and I are discussing an issue that is puzzling. He's convinced that there are two orings, and I only have one. I have one on the old one I removed, and only one came with the new one I'm about to install. It mounts on the outside of the...
  16. You HAVE to watch this!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I couldn't stop laughing. Not the correct forum, but I just had to post it here. I'm sure the mods will be kind in exchange for the laugh.
  17. Slightly hit from behind in bumper, have questions.

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I was slightly hit from behind while waiting at a stop sign. The lady driving behind me left her foot off her break and hit me at less than 5MPH. I felt the impact and thinking there was gonna be damage. I couldn't believe when I got out to look there was no damage at all except for some slight...

  19. I don't have a rocker Switch

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys, thank you for your time viewing my post. I recently purchased a VW Passat 1.9 TDI v reg (1999) 110bhp. After looking at some of the sticky posts I believe it is a B5 model. The car did not come with a hand book so I'm here trying to figure out a problem. I tried searching google and...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Leave it to my kid to tell me o yeah the floor has been kind of wet for a few months. We cam back from vacation and his front windows were down and trunk unlocked. and a inch of water in back seat foot area. Pulled the CCM our disaster as expected. But also some of the wires corroded...
