  1. 2005 Wagon 4 Mo need trans pump or maybe new trans

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If I have to replace the whole transmission, What fits? Reason I ask is, they don't seem to common on the used market. Thinking about buying a donor.
  2. 2001 VW Passat Overheating...or Maybe Not

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2001 Passat Wagon with a 2.8 V6. About a week ago the temp gauge, which previously had been solidly fixed at 190 when warmed up, started climbing towards the red. At first it was just one line past 190 and then a few days later it was two lines past. And now today it hit the red, and...
  3. Faint noise coming from the compressor (maybe?)

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hello, I own a Passat B7 (2011) and it has been a while since I hear this faint rubbing noise ( which disappears as soon as I turn the AC on ( I was told that it is the compressor (Delphi 5N0 820 803A) but I am not very convinced since...
  4. Component Id.. Fuel Pressure maybe

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  6. Maybe its just me!

    New Member Introductions
    Does it bother anyone that car manufacturers can produce a vehicle that is one broken belt away from major engine repairs?? We should be protected from interference engines. Sounds like someone missed a great chance at a class action lawsuit. Or at least different designs of engines. Guess it...
  7. Maybe new here, but definitely not a noob

    Just picked up a 2004 W8 in a 6 speed manual last Friday. So far it's been a nice ride, and I'm looking forward to the information here to help with anything that may arise.
  8. Maybe I need to rethink the definition of car show.........

    Anything Auto
    For starters, I confess to being the oddball here. I like cars just as they come from the factory and the lack of love I get for my ride certainly reflects that sentiment. When I returned to a Passat last fall after trying in vain to fulfill a delusional vision of water-cooled New Beetles and...

  10. Thinking maybe A4 next but consuming oil?

    Anything Auto
    Hey, so my B5.5 is still running well but it's getting up there and i have been thinking new Passat or CC but I am also looking hard at used A5 or A4 AWD so I have been trolling the Audi forms. I figured a lot of stuff I would know about already but was curious if the 2010-2015 had Timing belts...
  11. Maybe Time to Move On?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I already have a post - AC Question on Maintenance - that details my need for a new AC Evaporator and whatever else one replaces when the dash comes out, like the heater core. This thread is me asking if it may be time to move out of the 1999 Passat V6 5-speed manual with 143k miles and into...

  13. So what car next? Mid life crisis maybe.

    Anything Auto
    Thinking ahead towards the end of this year and my next ride. I love the wagon by miss my old GTI. Thinking about a complete change in direction. Porsche air cooled. Early 80's A/C a must in N Florida. 911 , 930 budget about 30K (Is that even possible) I guess not for the 930 but one can...
  14. Noob... Maybe a simple question about the radio and/or wipers

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey everybody! Brand new to the forums... And to owning a VW. I've got a bit of fixing up to do, so I'll probably be posting regularly on the forums. Both asking questions, and offering what help I might be able to give.. For now, I've got a question about the radio, and another about the...
  15. Maybe cold weather issues.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I live in Wisconsin and the weather is absolutely brutal. The temperature has not been over 15° f this week. So I'm not sure if this is what is playing the role of my issues. Car details at the bottom. This morning it was -8 and the car started rough but I made it work just fine. Then I took...
  16. New Member from South FLA with, not me...well, maybe both

    New Member Introductions
    Greetings all. My wife has a 2012 Passat SE. We woke to a dead battery. I took the old one out and it tested as "bad" at Autozone. I bought the replacement they had listed. I put the new battery in, connected the positive terminal, then the negative and as soon as the negative touches, the horn...
  17. 2012 VW CC ... Making some changes ... Maybe..

    New Member Introductions
    Hello!! I recently purchased a 2012 CC Sport 2.0T. I'm not familiar with all the car lingo so please bear with me! :-) I love pretty much everything about the car and it was a perfect match as far as what I wanted. There's really only two things I'm wondering about...#1 the kind of loud "road...
  18. I fixed my B5 heat for free! Maybe you can also.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 2000 Passat B5 with Climatronic temperature control had absolutely no heat. AC worked fine. The climatronic self diagnosis returned ONLY error 4F7 which means heater positioning flap motor (servo) no response. The rest of the car is in good shape. I ruled out a clogged interior heat...
  19. Maybe useful information on front wheel bearing replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 2003 1.8T started having this rumbling noise when driving at least half year ago. The noise was getting louder when turning right. Everyone pointed out the noise was from the passenger side. How come? I tried all suggestions from PZ, Steve in Chicago and Chefro etc. but could not identified...
  20. This maybe redundant to veterans but 1998 1.8 turbo wagon will crank but won't start.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm having a problem with my '98 wagon. When I left work, it fired up fine. When I went to go to work the next day, it would crank but no start. It's acting like it's not getting gas. Thought it was the gas filter, changed that. The fan clutch was broken, changed that, but not quite sure if that...
