  1. Code 001109 - EVAP System P0455 - 001 - Large Leak Detected

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I am getting code 001109 - EVAP System P0455 - 001 - Large Leak Detected I meanwhile changed the gas cap seal (since the dash warning light was showing that symbol), but no change. What are likely culprits for the leak? Is the EGR pipe (back of engine) and PCV also part of the 'evap system'...
  2. Evap large leak 2009 Passat Wagon

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    If you get a check engine light and large evap leak code like I did on my 09 wagon, check to see if your gas cap wiggles a little or a lot after tightening. If so, you can order the part 1K0-201-557-A from the dealer for way less than the entire cap and swap it out in under a minute. Mine was...

  5. *URGENT* Large extra bolt after Cam Seal Replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I lost a lot of sleep on this last night. I have an extra 8mm all thread allen head bolt approximately 3in long. It receives a 6mm allen head to drive it. I took the timing belt off and both intake cams to replace every cam seal including the CCT shoes. I have scoured the FSM and Chilton's...
  6. My car now has a large air vent, so I'm going to vent about it!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys! So.. This really isn't anything but a rant.. I was on the way to work this morning, driving the highway at about 70, when I hear a loud POP! come from my back seat.. I'm immediately thinking it's a tire (it was a hell of a POP!), because I just put some air in one of the back ones...

  8. Long time coolant leak and now oil leak? I'm not sure. Large photos here.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2003 VW Passat with 140,000 miles. Bought the car knowing it had a coolant leak. I'm getting down today to see what I can do about it. This is since yesterday: You can see that one of the hoses are bulging and has some white residue at the end of the clamp. What's the best way to approach...
  9. Tiptronic large magnet assembly?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all sorry if this has been discussed before but I can't find it if there is one. Sorry in advance I was wondering if it is possible to get the large magnet with the plastic already attached? I went to all the auto salvage yards in the metro Phoenix area and I give up and would rather just...
  10. Deep squeek/rub sound from front end over large bumps at low speed

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been noticing a deep squeek, almost like a "rub" sound (not a creak, really), that occurs whenever I pull into my driveway which has a fairly significant lip on it. Same thing happens over speed bumps. Very low speed when I notice. Suspension travel is pretty high in these cases which might...
  11. Large black hole in driver side dash ????

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well, its day-light out and I can't see my speedo or tack. Just a large black spot, can' tell how fast I am going or if the tack is even working. Any way to throw a little light on the gauges other than turning on the headlights? That only helps a little, surely I am not the only one to notice...
  12. Large plug in radiator size

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had a coolant leak not too long ago that I suspected was caused by the radiator, since my car cannot be down for very long (main mode of transportation until the weather dries out here) I ordered an el cheapo radiator as an interim solution until I can get the vw part tested. The rad shipped...
  13. Are small and large map sensors interchangeable?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Like title states....I want to use a larger diameter map sensor on my 2005 that came with the smaller diameter sensor, as I'm getting an intercooler with the bigger flange. The harnesses look identical, and the physical layout is the same.
  14. 16839 large leak detected-what can cause that?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Trying to pass smog on my daughter's 3.0 A4, generally same EVAP system as B6 and probably B5 Passats. If anyone has encountered that "16839 large leak detected" code, I'd like to know what was found in your case. Also, on another topic, the Meyle motor mounts in my Passat may actually be...

  17. Large Vacuum Leak P0103

    B5 Garage
    I recently got a P0103 and can actually here the leak. It does not happen when in park or neutral. I can only hear it in drive and early acceleration. It is a deeper tone than the traditional turbo whine but appears to change in speed as the turbo spins up. I do not believe it is the mass...
