  1. Intermittent popcorn sound from front passenger side

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2003 1.8T wagon with 115k miles and I'm hearing an intermittent popcorn type sound from the front passenger side. If I drive for a while then I'll sometimes hear it at low speeds like 20mph. It is a very low muffled sound but if I put my foot on the brake pedal I can feel it. The...
  2. P0411 changed from static to intermittent, 2.8L

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I managed to get a P0411 code that had an obvious cause after inspecting my vacuum hoses. (Hopefully it won't have a secondary cause, but it was ok until I was messing around with a speedwrench to remove the top flange nut. Apparently trashed the little vacuum elbow on the combi valves.) So I...

  4. Intermittent stumble, P0011 & P0012

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 02 1.8T has started stumbling occasionally while driving. Just a tiny second of rough running once or twice a day. Other than that, the car is running great. It doesn't always illuminate the CEL. First time I scanned the computer I got a P0011, and the next time a P0012. First scan...

  7. Intermittent Starter Operation (Apparently) Solved

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My recently-acquired (last Feb.) '05 4Motion Wagon with AWM engine and Tiptronic (B5 #5 for me) recently began suffering from symptoms I've seen described here quite a few times: the starter would intermittently fail to energize. The solenoid would click, but it would not move far enough to...
  8. ABS/brake warning lights - intermittent

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hope someone can help. For the last couple weeks, I've had the ABS and brake warning lights flash momentarily on the instrument cluster - along with the beeps. I don't have VCSD, but my XTools error code says " Electrical connection between ABS and instrument cluster sporadic. No signal". I've...
  9. Intermittent Overheating issue

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi yall, I took my passat on a trip to philly this weekend which is about 3-4 hrs from me. When driving on the highway the coolant temp stayed right at 190 like it should but when we would go up a hill sometimes it would start to climb with the RPMS up higher. When you let off it cools down...
  10. Intermittent overheating

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    04 1.8t Stable at idle, overheating while driving. Replaced thermostat and temp sensor. Been running fine for a month. Started overheating again yesterday. Today, it was stable for a few miles, but now overheating again, even at idle now. Only thing can figure, is that the plastic impeller is...
  11. Intermittent no start issue - 2003 Passat GLX v6 4motion Wagon.

    B5 Garage
    Newb here, please feel free to move this if it would be better somewhere else. Does anyone know what this sound is and if the component could contribute to a failure to start? Secondary air injector pump? Not sure if this model even has one. The closest thing I would use to describe this...
  12. AC Intermittent

    B5 Garage
    This is on a 2003 Passat with the 2.8l (ATQ?) engine. It doesn’t have climate control. The primary symptom is the air is alternately blowing hot and cold. I haven’t seen the electric fan on the passenger side spin. I’m guessing that’s what the Bentley refers to as the “coolant fan”. Assuming...
  13. 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...
  14. Intermittent Tapping Sound Until Engine is fully warmed up

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi There, I am getting a ticking sound that happens for the first 10 minutes or so while the car is warmingup. It only happens at idle. It is not in sync with engine RPMs its like a loud tapping sound but happens randomly. It sounds as if it is coming from the front of the engine. Any thoughts...
  15. 2007 Passat 103Tdi Jerkiness whilst driving - long term intermittent problem

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have a 2007 Passat 103 Tdi with 6-speed DSG and have been considering replacing it but the wife and I like it so much that it is likely we will replace it with another Passat. I would consider keeping it though if I could solve an issue that has been intermittent for the past three years. It...

    Hi guys Car is a 1999 B5 Sedan 1.8T (built '98 if that makes a difference) In the past month, I've noticed I have to hit the unlock button a few times on my fob for the car to unlock (thought this was just the fob battery dying).

  19. 01331 | ECU Driver Door - J386 No Communication - Intermittent

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So my dear friends at Passat World, I have come to my wits end trying to figure out what exactly is going on with my W8 Passat. I pulled the door apart a few weeks ago for 2 reasons, the locking mechanism wouldn't function 100%, and my window regulator was shot. Upon replacing both (with...
  20. Intermittent Immobilizer issue - codes 17978 and 01176, Engine start is being blocked

    B5 Garage
    Vehicle is a 2001 V6 GLX B5.5. Per the year (2001) I would have thought it had Immobi II. But according to what I've read on the Ross Tech site, it leads me to believe it has Immobi 3. I'm basing this on the scan below showing 17 VIN digits followed by 14 digit Immobi ID. Owned the car for a...
