I guess with vw everything doubles in price than the...
  5. What may cause the RPM to oscillate under heavy throttle?

    2000 Passat 1.8T ATW Automatic (117K miles) I apologize if this is a re-post of a common problem, but my search queries involving the keywords "struggling, hesitating, power loss" yield common results that don't quite match the problem I am experiencing. At times that I need extra...

    01 1.8 AWM 174,000 mi. First, during the winter, the heat did not work. Fan blows fine, just not hot. No big deal, I'm in a Hot city. Then about a week ago the car overheated. I turned it off waited about 5 min. Started it back up and it was fine. I drove without the A/C on and it didn't...
  7. Farewell VW - March 2001 to May 2013 - and Thank You Clubb5

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I posted a similar posting over at VWvortex.com. But it was clubb5.com that came first for me, so I wanted to customize this a little from that posting. In November of 2000, I joined VWVortex around the same time that I joined Clubb5 as I became interested in buying my first VW. Probably, few...
  8. I may not be here for long

    New Member Introductions
    Due to changes to MOT tests within the UK - the EPS light (which has been on for the last 5 years since I bought the car) is now causing my car to fail the MOT. This seems a bit ridiculous as it is a feature that you can just switch on or off by pressing a button on the dashboard, so I'm sure it...

    I was volunteering at the 5th Gold Rush Rally ( GRV ) which started at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco and took a bunch of photos of some amazing machines all decked out like an automotive Mardi-Gras. Since I've known one of the original crew from Los Angeles, she graciously allowed me on...

  15. Mobil-1 10W40 may not be a VW approved 502 etc... BUT

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Mobil-1 10W40 usage may not be VW approved for warranty coverage, but it is an excellent oil. One of the highest quality motor oils available in North America. My 2004 VW owners manual states that 5W40 motor oil in the VW 50X.XX specification is what to use. The 40 part of the designation is...
  16. Think it may be time for a 6th turbo setup (comp turbo 5556 extended tip)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So it looks like my 60-1 may be on its way out (I'm getting oil seepage from around the turbine housing). So in the interest of experimentation and going faster i'm seriously considering picking up a journal bearing comp turbo CT3 5556 with a billet compressor w an extended tip upgrade. I can...

  18. May have convinced my wife to join the VAG family

    Anything Auto
    We may go shopping for a Q7 this weekend. Anyone have one? Does the 3.6 feel underpowered? Does the 4.2 get dramatically poor mpg? Since we have 3 kids plus gear and such for trips to the beach, mountains, etc. we really need a 7-passenger SUV. I think she will be ga-ga over Q7 interior and...
