    I recently acquired an '02 Passat 1.8T Wagon (auto) w/ 175k miles in really nice shape (runs and shifts flawlessly, not even a door ding) except that the oil pressure light flickers above about 2500rpm. It needs an ABS module, but other than that, it's great. I assumed (dumb, I know), it was...

    https://youtu.be/rbaN-pq86cs I recently picked up a decent running B5.5 Passat Wagon. I've done a couple maintenance items, with a few more to go. Over the weekend I swapped the three easy vacuum lines, but didn't secure them. That and the TSI coilpack/spark plug swap made a big difference...

    Hi, I just bought a 2002 Passat 1.8T with 103,000 miles. I don't have any maintenance info for the car and i'm kinda worried about the timing belt breaking and destroying my valves and pistons. The car is in good condition and doesn't have any CELs, it looks like the previous owner did all the...

    Hello, 98' Passat 1.8t automatic Doing timing belt replacement. Realized the lower TB cover is covered with tar-like oily substance. Should I assume it is the crank seal leak? If so, should I replace the crank pinchbolt with new one? Thanks.

    Hey all, I purchased a '98 Passat 1.8l turbo 20v for $500. It's garaged right now and does turn over but doesn't idle without constant gas. There is a vacuum line disconnected on the intake manifold. Could that cause the idle to cut off? Also, note in the video what sounds like belts rubbing...

    Long story short, I swapped out a complete AWM engine and trans from a low mile audi into my 2004 Passat which I purchased with major engine damage from an oiling issue. I got the car running yesterday but, not a moment later the transmission started making a horrible noise. I started trying to...

    So in the process of returning my jack to its stock location, I saw this plug hanging out by itself. I have only had this car a month or so, so I am still getting acquainted. As far as I can tell, everything works on the vehicle save for some really crappy, spotty radio reception. I looked...

    Is this stub mount correct? Should there be something else in the square hole or was it designed to allow some movement?

    Hi, I posted a thread where this same Passat had heavy misfiring to the point where it shook the entire car. Due to time and other obligations, I decided to leave the car parked for some weeks. I later couldn't start the car anymore -- it would click, click, click rapidly. Found an exposed wire...

    2003 1.8T Passat Video enclosed here: I think the video shows it all. The Passat had been parked for a while due to a misfire issue but had this issue prior this too. At first it was the battery so I replaced it with a new one -- still dated from 11/14. But this time, I even had the car...
