  1. Pipe broken near oil dipstick tube under intake manifold b5.5 1.8t

    B5 Garage
    My passat has a turbo underboost code and before changing the turbo I was inspecting all the lines. I noticed that there was an elbow completely missing that looks pretty important. It goes into the engine right near where the oil dipstick tube is. I have no idea what the purpose of the elbow...

  3. Exhaust leak in front, doesn’t seem like manifold

    B5 Garage
    I just replaced the passengers head, runs great. I know I torqued the manifold bolts, it was in my lap when I did it, I just popped off the heat shield and still feel no air from the manifold. Is there something disconnected buy the pump I hear when I start the car? Or vacuum line nit closing a...

  5. Intake Manifold Installation Help

    B5 Garage
    While replacing my intake manifold gaskets on my 2004 Passat 2.8 v6, I noticed a white plastic cone shape piece inserted into a blank hole in the intake. It appears to line up with a smaller hole where it seats. Is this simply a guide pin for installation? And is it necessary to put it back in...

  9. PCV System - Lowest Hose (Connects underneath intake manifold, V6)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    You know the saying a picture's worth a thousand words? Well here's one. This is the connector at the bottom of the equation, and as you can see, it's very clogged. There is no way that changing everything above it would help with the pressures if you didn't change this guy. It's definitely...
  10. V6 Exhaust Manifold HELP

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok, did a thorough search in here and also on Google, oemepc, (Chilton's is worthless) and I really can't come up with something pertinent. I do beg for a little information on reinstalling the exhaust manifolds (easy thing in itself). As I lowered Bank2 manifold (driver side) over the coppered...
  11. 2004 AWM 1.8T Breather Tube seal, is it worth it to remove intake manifold first?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The old 2004 is now past 164,000km and now the O-ring seal on the breather tube above the oil filter housing is leaking. Not really a bad leak, but you know.:nervous: I know the tube will fracture when I try to remove it, no biggie, but I read that getting the new one in with the new O-ring is...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello Everyone! A week or so ago I posted on here that my daughter's 01 Passat GLS 1.8t (AUG) lost all of its coolant, again. I found the source, and it was a rupture in the coolant return line from the turbocharger. So, I have pulled the entire front end off the car to make for slightly...
  18. Remove B6 3.6L intake manifold

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello everyone. I tried yesterday to remove my intake manifold to replace my valve cover. It looks like I need to take the front end off, but I tried that and it was taking too long and I'd still need to take off the radiator to reach the forward bolts. I tried taking the front end off this...
  19. Exhaust Manifold Questions

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My exhaust manifold has a dent, pressure is coming out through that dent. Should I change it for the ATP Turbo Manifold or de Kinetic that sells CTS Turbo? Thanks! Also, any Intake Manifold upgrades out there? I just found the SEM and I don't think it's worthless 700 bucks for a K04. Thanks!
  20. Broken hose under intake manifold?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    While working on my 1.8T AWM I noticed a broken hose. Tried to take a picture of it but my phone can't see that far in. Best way to eyeball it is crouched down in front, looking over the alternator and under the manifold. It's just to the left of, and slightly behind the crankcase dipstick...
