    Since im new to passats and the search function doesnt work for ****. Why the hate and lack of support for the 30v? from what i understand the 30v is far more reliable and has less issues then the 1.8t. My local VW guy who owns a shop that i have been hanging out in during my spare time, says...

    Since several weeks I'm experiencing with somewhat serious lack of power. The engine really struggles to pick up speed and the gas consumption has gone up. Following are a list of parts and factors I have been taken care of: 1) O2 sensor is less than a year old. 2) MAF sensor is less than a...

    2003 VW Passat 1.8T 96,000 miles Car has a severe lack of power so much that it struggles to get up the hill of our driveway.

    It's been a while my 1.8 2002 lacks power and shifts gears slowly. I have changed the MAF to a Bosch sensor, cleaned the KN air filter, cleaned and aligned the TB, changed the O2 sensor, have changed the ATF (MaxLife). Have used several bottles of Techron already to clean the injectors. I'm...

    So I currently own a stock 1999 Passat 1.8t. It runs well and is not throwing a code(s) and it hasn't since I bought it. My concern is I owned a 2001 Passat 1.8t before this and the 2001 seem to pull a lot better. This 99 doesn't appear to have the same power. Like I said there's no obvious...

    Hi there, This is my first post on the forums, and I need a little help. I've got a Passat B5.5, the 1.9TDI 130 model. The car pulls fantastic and hasn't missed a beat, but lately something odd has been happening. At random intervals on a journey, I'll put my foot down and there'll be no power...

    I don't have much test equipment OTHER than a code reader and multi-meter, and I'm trying to narrow down a lack-of-spark problem on my 98 1.8t AEB Passat. Any thoughts on how to track this down?

    I drive a 1998 1.8T and it seems every time i shift gears i lose a lot of momentum. I ended up racing a 1998 saturn sl2 and the race was extremely uneven as i lost badly. That should not be the case as it suprised both me and every one i know, the owner of the saturn is my buddy so i know that...

    At the start of the month, I noticed that my heat/AC controls weren't lighting up with the headlights on. I then noticed I had no heat, after driving for a bit it got warm but never hot. There is no change in the temp gauge in my car. Also can hear the air changing flow path when switching from...

    I have a brand new 2010 2.0 Turbo auto. I am unable to achieve any sort of smooth start from a stop with the car. From idle the car starts to lurch forward and any effort at a smooth start is met by some stumbling until the car starts to get up to speed. Havent been back to the dealership...

    I just got these tires yesterday to replace my Potenza RE960's and I'm breaking the tires loose on acceleration, especially when turning a corner, where the 960's didn't, or did much less. Is this the way they are? Does anyone else here have them? Once I remember getting new tires a long time...

    Hey PW im having some really annoying trouble with my 98 v6 passat. It is lagging between gear changes, up hills in particular.
