    HELP! I am getting a MIL and 17927 code "Camshaft Adjustment, Bank 1 Malfunction - Sporadic" after replacing both cam chain tensioners on my 2003 V6 (I had a broken pad on one side, and given the mileage I decided to replace them both). To do this job, I removed both cams on both sides, along...

    Hi, the wastegate on the turbo for my 2016 Passat R-line wont open on the Charge Air Pressure Actuator. It only clicks and heats up when the key is turned to "ON". Any idea as to why that happens and how to fix it.

    Today I took my B5.5 for a tire change. Two weeks ago the car was tuned-up and had an oil change. Everything fine, smooth and excellent fuel mileage (30.1 mpg). Suddenly the car began with a misfire when the installer handed me the car. I asked him, WTF?? The obvious answer you might guess "oh...

    Hi guys, I did some research on this issue and still need some help. I get the p0010 camshaft position actuator a bank 1, circuit malfunction. So, I figured it may be an 'electrical issue' of some sort. I changed the camshaft position sensor and still doesn't work. I read to test the solenoid...

    I had the HVAC fan motor out yesterday because it started to squeak a bit, and in the process found the flap location for cabin recirculation. The cabin recirculation flap does this (see vid) when recirculate is off. It makes noise that is rather annoying when it partially opens / closes when...

    I started my 2012 Passat SE this morning and scraped the frost off the windshield and cleaned beneath the wipers. I then got back in the car and tried to activate the windshield wipers, but they would not work. Any suggestions on a quick fix or where to check first? Thanks!

    So I love my Passat, but lately it has had a lot of issues and I am trying to decide whether it’s best to get a newer car, or make the repairs. It’s a 2001 VW Passat V6 with 181k miles. Today I started to drive and my vehicle was not able to get over 1000 RPMs without starting to die. Although...

    Hello all, I just got this code on my car and after plugging it in with a generic computer , it seems like it's the oxygen sensor that is starting to go bad I guess. Is this something I can change myself ( buy part online from reliable seller ) What is the experience or do I need to bring it...

    Hi. My left tail light recently stopped working. Naturally I suspected the bulb to be broken but it wasn't (I even tried with the right side bulb) I have now measured that the +12V for the tail light (position light) is constant 0V. All other bulbs are working properly on both left and right...

    I have been using this thread for months now to solve problems that I encounter. After searching extensively on this forum and others I finally broke down and joined so I could ask the question myself. The air conditioning on my Passat lately has been less than stellar. The air usually starts...

    Finally I think I can put this post to bed . After several weeks of chasing this headache this annoying problem is finally over. I originally posted of having no DRL & turn signal on the "right" side . Flashers were ok all around, high beam & fogs all ok. After reading many posts here, the...

    Hey guys, DIY'er here. I replaced the timing belt using a Blau kit (it went great with the kit). However, I'm getting these two codes that were not there previous to the timing belt. Codes are at very bottom. O2 Lamda: Correction behind catalyst and Camshaft Adjustment Bank 2 Malfunction...

    Sorry if this was posted somewhere else, but I've looked for two days and not found this specific issue. My 2006 3.6 had four or five LEDs out on both tailights on the bottom. I bought new Depo tail lights and installed them Saturday. The tail lights, brake lights and turn signals all work...

    Hello, My gas door will not open. I was able to gain access and remove the actuator. I unplugged it and checked the movement of the plunger and it moves in and out freely. I have 12 volts at the plug when the switch is activated. When I plug the actuator in however it seems to have resistance...

    I was driving my 2008 Passat 2.0 T on the highway (I-20) and I had to get infront of the car infront of me so I accelerated which led my RPM to rise to about 4,000. At that moment, the malfunction light blinked a few times and I could feel the car was shaking (not the body itself but I could...
