  4. Its your fuel pump. No wait, youve got no compression?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 99 was driving just find, zero issues. One day I was driving to work and it died. Seemed like a fuel issue. Took it to a VW dealer, the same I always use, who at first said it was a fuel pump issue. I said go for it, repair it. They did so then came back and said there is no compression from...

  9. E-Brake/Parking Brake Stuck/Won't move its full arc

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a scraping noise coming from my rear drivers side wheel. It sounds like tin scraping and at first I thought it might be the brake shield in back scraping. I jacked up the back and took off the wheel and I see no evidence of shield scraping, but the brake rotor does seem to scrape when...

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    My Passat b7 did not come with LED headlight and xenon (optional packages), and now I want to install/convertion DIY DRL LED's inside the headlights. The LEDs B7 without LED and factory xenon have a separate light for DRL, near the fog lights, as in the photo...
  11. Maybe its just me!

    New Member Introductions
    Does it bother anyone that car manufacturers can produce a vehicle that is one broken belt away from major engine repairs?? We should be protected from interference engines. Sounds like someone missed a great chance at a class action lawsuit. Or at least different designs of engines. Guess it...

    Hit a curb. I finished a long day, with back to back gigs (I'm a musician) was driving to the other end of a church campus to load my gear. Was going about 40, took a left hand turn, there was a small median, poorly lit at a 3 way intersection. Front right wheel smashed. Ripped the bumper cover...

Filled up the coolant tank and closed the cap. Then started the car, ran the heat and then after about 10 min, the temp started raising 200 and...
