  1. B5 hesitates with a/c on

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My passat b5 started hesitating with a/c on. Otherwise, it runs fine. Idle also drops about 50 rpm when ac is on. Even before this started the car got really weak with ac on, but at least it was consistent. Now it accelerates rough, almost wants to stall sometimes. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  2. Intermittent Hesitation Problem in Extreme Heat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I live in Arizona, so in the summer temperatures reach 100+ consistently. After I've been driving, my 1999 V6 passat FWD (140,000 miles), for 30+ minutes through the extreme heat my car will start to hesitate when I accelerate. Right at about the 3000 rpm mark the engine will stutter but recover...
  3. V6 Hesitation under acceleration

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    99 V6, manual transmission. This issue just started. Hottest day of the year here, 97deg (no idea if related), and the A/C was blasting for the first 30 min of the drive (everything was normal). Then, I started getting hesitation under acceleration, in all gears. No sounds, just momentary...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hesitation and low rpms and CEL - '06 V6 5MT I've had an issue with stumbling/hesitation when applying throttle and low rpms in my Passat for some time, but it got noticeably worse this weekend during a 600+ mile excursion. During the trip was also the first time that the CEL lit during some...
  5. Rough idle and hesitation under load at low RPMs

    B5 Garage
    A little background: I have a 2003 Passat 4motion wagon with the ATQ (V6) engine which I've owned since 72,000 miles. New plugs (NGK) and air filter at 91,000. Valve cover gaskets showed signs of leaking at that time, with oil pooling in the plug holes. Timing belt and water pump were done at...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2004 V6 with auto 167.800 on the odometer Leaving my house last night my car lost acceleration power for ~ 100 - 200 feet :icon_eek: Almost like I was sitting too far away from the gas pedal to press it to accelerate :hmmm: I let off the gas then got back on it. Nothing! Did that a few times...
  7. Engine 'flutter' / hesitation, two codes, and the strangest fuel filling experience

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings everyone, Last week I was driving home from work, got off the freeway, and was sitting in traffic at a red light. The engine idle dipped to a near stall for just a moment, and then recovered. Car drove normally for a bit... And then had a pretty hard hesitation while going around a...

  9. 2005 Passat GLS 1.8lt misfire and hesitation

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi I have a 2005 Passat GLS Sedan 1.8l and recently the MIL started to flash while simultaneously the motor lost most of its power and struggled to maintain speed of 60MPH. Pull over, can still feel the motor shuddering and laboring hard. Turn it off and immediately restart and its seems fine...

    my 2000 passat with manual trans and ATW engine and 204k miles is misbehaving. she's been hitching and bucking under acceleration so i have been looking for vacuum leaks. so far i haven't found any bad hoses and poured water around the intake manifold and TB mating surfaces and they show no...
  12. AEB Hesitation From Idle

    B5 Garage
    I just changed the oil in daughter #2's B5 wagon. When I ran it after refilling it with oil, I noticed that as soon as you open the throttle (either via the linkage or pedal) the motor hesitates for a moment then revs. I did recently replace a bad MAF with a cheap $35 ebay unit; not sure if it...
  13. 2002 2.8L v6 automatic -- 2nd gear hesitation at 2500 rpm?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This happens consistently. When accelerating through 2nd gear, the engine will lower the revs by about 100 but there's no change in acceleration or power.. just revs. It's very weird and I'm just looking to see if anyone has some insight!
  14. Hesitation in acceleration with AC

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys Now that its warming up here I've noticed that whenever I turn the AC on my car doesn't want to accelerate as usual. With AC on I'll push the pedal down, there will be a hesitation (no effect), then the car will lurch and accelerate very roughly. However, as soon as I turn the AC...

    B5 Garage
    2003 Passat wagon V6 2.8L (ATQ), manual transmission, 93,000 miles 4 months ago: the acceleration was slightly rough, perhaps slightly less power than expected, but I was getting what for me was normal mileage, around 22 mpg in mixed driving. I took it to an independent shop. They found...
