    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I've done 2 fill ups and flushes with distilled water, emptying at the lower radiator connection. Today I tried going to remove the bolt in the block to get whatever crud may be in there from the previous owner running the wrong coolant and though I could get my allen bit into the...

  3. How do these spark NGK plugs look? From a 2001 VW Passat, 1.8T engine, 120k miles

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet Pulled these NGK spark plugs from a 2001 VW Passat 1.8T with 120k miles. Do these plugs look like they need to be replaced? The look relatively fine to me for having around 60k miles on them. Do they appear to indicate anything off about the...
  4. Would this look bad?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I currently have gauges (oil pressure, oil temperature and Volt meter) in the DIN underneath the radio. I was thinking of putting them in a more easily-visible place on top of the dash in this: 52mm Universal Triple Dash w Dome Lip Gauge Pod GS UD3 Lip | eBay Just wanted to get some...

    B5 Garage
    My 98 passat has developed an intermittent problem, where sometimes is not regulating the rpm good and I have to pump the gas a few times so it gets reving and then I can engage the gear. I connected my vagcom and got the errors you can see in the screenshot. Where should I start looking for the...
  6. Worth it to repair 2000 Passat or look for a used car (very limited budget)?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi- I have a 2000 Passat B5 with approx. 128,000 miles on it. I need to have the subframe replaced and a few other things. The car won't pass inspection in 2016 unless the subframe is replaced and I'm told it's dangerous to drive it as-is (although it did pass this year, which is when my...

    It just seems ways too small. It fits, but it's weird looking. Is this how they all look?
  8. When you look at your carfax when you buy your car and realize you're an idiot

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    yeahhhhhh....... I have been asking for my carfax from when I bought my car and my step dad finally got it so I could look over it again.... it was from 2011 and no one caught that, so I have no idea what the records were from 2011-present. I just don't feel like paying 40 dollars for a car fax...
  9. Do These Transmission Mounts Look OK?

    B5 Garage
    I took these out today. Do they look ok? I wasn't sure, so I replaced them with some URO Parts mounts from Amazon at $16 each. Funny thing is, almost all of the vibration at stop lights in gear has gone away. Is that a good thing?
  10. AC works only on highway and fuse for fan and AC do not look right

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    The air condition on my 2008 Passat 2.0T is working well (temperature is in 60s or 70s )when I drive on local road with low speed. When idling at parking lot or waiting signals, it could jump to 70s or 80s. But if I drove on highway at high speed, the temperature could drop to lower 40s or even...

  12. Front brake grinding when coming to a stop... pads look fine ?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Having a problem where when I come to the stop light or sign, once I get down to about 10 MPH the brakes begin to grind really bad ( like metal on metal) . I thought my pads were worn down but I looked at them today and they looked fine to me. They actually seems to have quite a bit of brake...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just did the both of the cct's. Could someone please tell me if everything looks in time and the roller count is correct? The timing mark on the exhaust cam on the drivers side does not have enough light, but I can tell you it is on the timing mark. Thank you in advance for your input.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello guys. I don't frequent this page but come here when my mother has trouble with her 03 6cyl so please forgive the lack of knowledge. Yesterday my mom complained that her heat wasn't working. It would come in warm for a few then go out and blow only cold air. She said she could smell...

    B5 Garage
    I don't have any signal here. The bulb socket is shot too. Any Ideas on replacement? I didn't see anything at ECS. Where does that wire unplug? It just seems to disappear into the fender.

  17. Advice: Does this look like a tie rod job?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys. I think my tie rod needs replacement. Can any of you look at the photo and let me know if I'm correct? The one with the grease. It was creaking before I greased it when I turned left. But now I'm getting vibrations at highway speeds. If so, how tough is it to replace? Thanks in...
  18. Passat 1.8 died, won't start. Which direction should I look? EPC?

    B5 Garage
    Girlfriend's car, symptom prior to dying: it would feel like it had low power going away from a stop sign, and the next stop sign it just died when pulling away. Will not start, sometimes starts and then dies with 1 second. Other stuff: low on oil (filling with oil did not solve problem)(no...
