    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So i replaced my wife's transmission in her 01 Passat 1.8t. What a job that was. Luckily I have a mechanic that let me use his garage after hours, and a local dubber let me borrow his engine support after spending too much time trying to get the old one out without taking off the K frame... I am...
  3. You think the 40k maintenance would make her happy. Ha.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Did my 40k maintenance. Well, at 148k, but you get the drift. Everything went smooth. A PCV valve got replaced, as well as the common oil breather hose. Drove to work through the city, everything was just as good if not better, while driving home at a stop light, she randomly threw these...

    The Black Hole
    Does this mean Willow is knocked up, or did she get a job as the new Fox News weathergirl? Or maybe she's been "hiking the Yukon trail" with some cannuck?

  10. taking her in on Thursday for misfire and sputter

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a '99 V6 and some of you've suggested my coilpack may be bad. I went to Checker and they told me I have a misfire code (didn't show which cylinder). I've ran a couple of tanks of Techron and it helped a bit, also it gets worse at low RPMs especially between 2 & 3k. I figure it's either...
