    Hey guys, I have owned a 2007 b6 Passat 2.0t sedan stick shift for about 2 months now. A couple of days ago, it had rained here in Indianapolis and I did not drive the car during that time because it wasn't needed. Last night, when I got into the car, I could see a flood of water in the front...

    Hello forum, I have what seems to be a small coolant leak somewhere on the drivers side of the vehicle. I recently added UV coolant dye to the coolant reservoir to help me to locate the leak. After a week of driving around with the dye in the cooling system, I was able to see some of the UV...

    I have a 2017 B9 Passat and there’s a small leak problem. So after heavy rain a small volume of water lodges on the front passenger side carpet of the car. It’s not much maybe only a tea spoon even after a couple nights rain. Replaced the windshield, cleaned the shoots and drain tubes and still...

    Just bought a 2006 Passat (B6) with the 2.0T engine in excellent shape. Happy with the car, great handling, speed, features. First VW and I love it! There is a mystery leak in the car. When it's been out in the wet for a while the footwell of the front passenger side gets wet. It's very...

    My passat has a turbo underboost code and before changing the turbo I was inspecting all the lines. I noticed that there was an elbow completely missing that looks pretty important. It goes into the engine right near where the oil dipstick tube is. I have no idea what the purpose of the elbow...

    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'...

    2003 1.8T 5.5 .... I recently had leakage suddenly occur at rear of engine. Thinking it was the typical cracked Coolant Flange fitting on the back of the engine I looked back there and saw coolant leaking.

    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...

    So over winter I noticed an oil leak coming from the back of the engine on my 1.8t so i figured that it was the Valve cover gasket or the cam chain tensioner gasket so I replaced them and the half moon about 2 weeks ago and cleaned up the area as best I could. I just checked again recently and...

    Was disappointed to see that there's some smoking behind the driver's side valve cover once again at high revs. It's been about 2 years and 10k miles put on the car since I did the associated valve cover gaskets, cct seals etc. Also, changed the 2 breather hoses on top. Is there something I...
