  1. Brake reservoir leaking?

    B5 Garage
    While doing some maintenance I notice the brake reservoir seems to be seeping out of this scrunched/nipple/connection. There is a bit of fluid underneath this, and when I place my finger on the side/opening, a bit comes off/out. Pictures attached. Is this normal design? (having the connection...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    After carbon cleaning of intake valves, and some other work, car run great for several warm ups. Then longer test drive, and started to idle rough, misfires on cylinder 4 and blowing noise that I can't pinpoint/locate. Starter fluid spraying revealed no leaks. Coil and plug swap no change...
  3. Heater core pipe leaking!!!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I have the dreaded heater core plastic pipe leaking :( It's leaking from the pipe that doesn't have the bleeder on the hose (The inlet pipe)? It looks to be 2 pin holes between the rubber boot and the hose. I know the fix is to replace the HC but I don't have time to do that now. There was...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2005 Passat with the 2.8 V6, only has about 80,000 miles on it. At about 75,000 miles, I did a timing belt job on it using a kit from Blauparts. This included valve cover gaskets, timing chain tensioner gaskets, etc. I followed the instructions precisely and only used RTV in the...
  5. Coolant Leaking Near Oil Pan Gasket??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello Everyone… I’m hoping someone can assist me. I have viewed many discussions related to coolant leaks, but nothing seems to speak to my issue specifically. My car’s ignition is off … I pour coolant in the coolant reservoir … I leaks out immediately, not from the coolant reservoir tank...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2002 V6 GLX 4Motion looking under the car, just in front of the drivers side rear wheel, I can see the black plastic gas tank is wet with gas that is leaking from the tank. I haven't done any more research than that, I haven't jacked the car up inspect more. Is anybody familiar with this issue...
  8. Thermostat housing leaking - how difficult to repair ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all. As the title states, my 2002 V6 has developed a coolant leak. It only leaks after the engine has warmed up, and continues leaking after the engine is no longer running. From what I can see, the leak is coming from right below where the lower radiator hose connects to the housing...

    B5 Garage
    Hi guys, water is entering my vehicle dripping under the rear door metal panel and entering the floor/carpet. What is the way to remove the metal part of the door panel, after the leather+handle been removed? I see the video here, but the 2:50-3:00 minute is missing something - in my case the...
  10. Turbo leaking oil between the case halves

    B5 Garage
    Ok so I am driving down the road and all of the sudden I am producing a smokescreen. I whip to the side of the road and I have oil coming out of the bottom of the turbo just to the front of the return line and between the case halves. I am pretty turbo stupid but the car was not running...
  11. Replaced Turbo leaking coolant and smoking

    B5 Garage
    Hey everybody, I just replaced the turbo on my 2005 Passat GLS Wagon, and when I started it up for the first time it started smoking and leaking coolant. I read somewhere else on the forum that smoking is normal when you put a new turbo in, but I just wanted to double check to see if that's...
  12. Transmission pan leaking

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2004 V6 Auto with 171k on her. Just noticed a leak at what appears to be the trans pan gasket. Is this common with this mileage or should I be looking at another place that the leak is coming from? It appears that it isn't leaking down from above the pan but the majority of the wetness is near...

    Recently had the clutch replaced and now I'm leaking coolant. Garage that did the clutch told me to keep an eye on the coolant level when I picked up the car cuz when working on the clutch I was told one of the coolant hoses was cracked. He ordered the part but it didn't fit. The hose with what...
  17. Leaking valve cover gaskets (V6)

    B5 Garage
    This is driving me nuts. I replaced the valve cover gaskets a few months ago because the spark plug holes were full of oil. Since doing so, they're no longer full of oil, but the things won't seal no matter what I do. They end up leaking from the front corner on the passenger side and the...

  19. What is this part? And why is it leaking?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    When I was replacing the timing belt, I came across this. What is it? It's on the right side of a V6. I couldn't stop the timing belt job and wait for an answer as I was renting space at Stew's Self Service Garage. Renting a bay at Stew's is pure luxury after years of crawling around on my...
