  1. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi folks. I have an '08 Passat Lux wagon with 115,000 miles. I change oil every 5k, did timing belt and water pump and tranny fluid at 90k. Most recent repair was oil filter adapter (had a leak) and new radiator (I poked a hole in it). How many miles do FSI's and these transmission rack up...

    What many miles do you recommend between oil changes with full synthetic oil, with a V6, 150,000 miles, driving 80% city streets, 20% highway. Also, does the weather affect things, like a cold winter in Minnesota? I always change the filter when I change the oil.

    Recently my 2010 CC wouldn't start. When my mechanic looked at it with his friend-who is a VW mechanic- he said he thought it was the exhaust valve. I had it towed to the VW dealer where I purchased it and had them take a look. It seems the timing chain broke and they suspect that, yes, they'll...
