  1. B5 Garage
    I looked and searched but couldn't find the answers to the following questions: (1) Will B6 wheels fit a B5? :confused: I have a set of Monte Carlos from a 2008? Passat I'd like to put on a 2001 wagon with 15s. The Montys are 17x7.5" with 225/45R17s on them. Or maybe they are 235s? I will try...

    Just finished looking at a 2003 v6 Passat-130k miles. According to the owner it has sat since March, inspection expired. Body and interior were good, here's my concerns: -Engine was warm when I got there. -Coolant is muddy, not pink. -Found evidence of oil leaks under engine. -Declared cat or...

    So I just bought my 2000 Passat Wagon 1.8t 5sp. I changed the spark plugs and used auto lites (probably a bad move but I didn't have enough for anything else). I pulled out the old plugs and they looked horrid. I replace and the car performed better than before. However, I have an intermittent...

    Was driving and the engine quit as if I turned the key off. Let sit for an hour and all it does is crank normal but doesn't fire up. Thought for sure it was the fuel pump and as I went to remove the fuel lines there was pressure there. There is also a strong smell of gas as if it's flooding...
  5. B5 Garage
    Hi all, First symptoms was air in the coolant. I could hear air bubbles in/near the rear of the engine when revving the engine. Obviously most noticeable from inside. Never really paid attention to how it was happening because it seemed to be sporadic. This evening I noticed the I only hear...

    Overall car was very nice. :driving: some fading in the leather, but that's to be expected. A few things that we noticed while looking it over that raised a few eyebrows: 1) There was moisture in both the driver's rear taillight (had about an inch of standing water) and the passenger side...

    Alright folks... Looked around and found nothing related to this question, though I know precisely nothing about cars, so thats no surprise... My 2006 passat 2.0t engine seized yesterday. Done. Kaput. And yes it's because I ran out of oil before anyone asks... I feel like a complete idiot, and...

  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi again folks, So, even though we're not ready (or had not planned) to buy, yet, I thought I should see a W8 up close and in person. In my intro I listed my shortlist of possible cars, but I forgot to mention the Phaeton. Rare and oddball cars can often be very good used values. Yesterday we...

    While looking for local alignment shops I stumbled upon this somehow. Either people really have no clue, or they just didn't look around for help first. I know these cars aren't perfect, but this many cars from a manufacturer that are this bad? Just read for some fun...

    I've been looking for months for a set of ADR M-Classics or Stern ST-8's and still no luck anywhere. If someone knows of some similar wheels,and a reliable place to get them at,don't hesitate to post. Gotta be under 170$ per wheel.

    Throughout today, at work and while I lay in bed looking for answers I cannot find any... I've found some close but not exactly what's going on with my car. I have a 98 20V turbo. The other day driving home with my cruise control on, it randomly quit and resumed to manual control. So I pressed...
