  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi All, I have been experience some weird problems with my transmission lately that I can't seem to figure out what would cause it. Here are the major two issues: Hard shift into third when car is completely automatic Sometimes when car is decelerating it begins to "kick" where it's like...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just picked up this 2002 GLX 5spd and of course it has quirks like any other VW. One of them being the A/C compressor does not kick on. This has the Climatronic and the relay under the dash is number 276. I initially thought this was an issue with the refrigerant being low, so I checked the...

    So, my Colorado Red B5.5 got rear-ended and totaled last year. From there, I inherited a tC from family for a short-term A to B. I'm now driving a 2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T and pretty happy with it. I've done a few basic mods, but I'm sure more will come. However, We also moved from NYC up to...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2008 Passat 2.0T that's been starting and running rough lately with the check engine light on. Within the last two days I've noticed that my turbo doesn't come on anymore. I had AutoZone do a scan and came back with these codes: P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303 and P0304. He...
  5. B5 Garage
    When I try to accelerate quickly -as in passing - my 99 1.8 hesitates,almost as if I had suddenly hit the brakes. When I backoff the throttle a bit it smooths out and the turbo kicks in and I seem to have full power to pass. The CEL isn't on but it has flashed a couple times so I had the codes...
  6. B5 Garage
    I'm not new to brake jobs and frozen bolts, but this one's got my number. I've hit it with propane (don't have MAPP) in all directions three times, soaked it in PB Blaster and used a variety of leverage points with various breaker bars: All to no avail. I've been trying for quite a few hours off...
  7. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am trying to figure out a A/C problem with a 2005 TDI Wagon. In a nut shell the A/C compressor clutch is not kicking on or should I say kicks on intermittent. The car doesn't have auto climate control. It is just manual controls. If you hit the A/C button to turn the A/C on the 2nd radiator...
  8. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    Hi, Today I parked my CC in the garage and when i got out I heard a loud vacum-like noise. I thought that it's some neighbour vacuming the car, but it turned out to be coming from under my hood. What's more I could also smell a bit like burning/hot plastics, my exhaust pipe was also emitting...

    My 03 1.8 will not take much gas. It is like feeding a baby veggies. You put a little gas in the pump kicks out. Can any one tell me what to check? Love my VW after 120,000 miles it needs a viagra:lol: thanks

    A quick question. I just got my 17s, koni sport shocks, n 1BE springs put on my B5.5 V6 4motion. And now when i slow down to a stop, i heard this gear sound n my brakes start slipping and gripping. Im guessing this is the ABS kicking in? And what could have the installation place done to...
