  8. 2006 Passat 2.0T: low compression cyl 4

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Bought a 2006 Passat with misfires. Compression check shows only 90 psi on cyl 4, 150 psi on cyl 1-3. I think engine code is BPY? Where to start with troubleshooting the low compression and associated misifres on cyl 4? Vagcom does not show misfires on cyl 1-2 (some on 3, but likely caused by...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi! I just bought a passat -08, that soon hits the 150 000 km mark, so there will be some things done on it, timing belt, checking the particulate filter and so on.

    ive had a issue with my passat to where only when the engine is at operating temp my low oil pressure light will come on, and when I'm at speeds 65mph and above it goes out until I go below 65mph. so I don't know if I just need to replace the pressure sensor or replace the oil pump.

  19. Wife's 2004 Passat GLS Wagon needs fuel pump, what's a decent low cost one? Started

    B5 Garage
    My original post won't open, so I'm trying again. We were selling the car anyways to make room for a new Passat or Audi A6 then the fuel pump craps out. Changed the fuel filter, which was filthy, which probably helped the pump die an early death. Started searching FCP Euro, ECS, Parts Geek, and...

    B5 Garage
    We have been actually looking for a newer Passat or Audi when her current VW died the other day. Thought maybe I'd get lucky and replace the filter and be done with it, but not this time. The filter was terribly dirty inside, which probably led to the early demise of her fuel pump. Started...
