    Anything Auto
    From June. A close friend got married. She didn't want to have her 70-something dad fly out here so she decided she wanted to do the wedding in Newport Beach. We wanted to something big this year since I was turning 50 and my other half, 40. We decided to make it a road trip. "Oh you guys are...

    Hi guys (and girls), I've been a member of this board for a while now, but had yet to post my first message on here... so imo it's only appropriate that I would introduce myself. I'm Stefan, 32 and from Holland, my wife and I have a 2yr old son. At the moment I own a '03 Passat variant pd130...

  4. 1.8t cranks but doesn't start - looked around and haven't found anything to fix it.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Was driving and the engine quit as if I turned the key off. Let sit for an hour and all it does is crank normal but doesn't fire up. Thought for sure it was the fuel pump and as I went to remove the fuel lines there was pressure there. There is also a strong smell of gas as if it's flooding...
  5. I haven't whored my wagon in some time

    The Showroom

  7. A trip computer display problem I haven't read about

    B5 Garage
    My 2001.5 Passat has a problem (quirk?) with the LED trip computer display. It always is prefectly bright with no missing pixels when I start driving, but after some time it fades from the top down. It eventually fades down to where only the bottom half is visible. It always returns to full...

    New Member Introductions
    Here's what I wanted to post on the B5 forum: Hi guys, My B5.5 is currently on limp mode. My mechanic told me it's due to bad turbo and a valve next to it (I forgot what it's called). The previous owner put a B5 turbo from a junkyard. I don't know if it's caused by incompatibility or just...

    I've got about 104k miles on my 98 1.8T, I've owned her for the last 4 years and I'm embarrassed to say, but I've been neglecting her lately. I guess I got a wild string up my ass, and decided to do a few maintenance things that should have been done about 20k miles ago. I flushed the brake...
