    Hey all! 04 V6 GLX auto with ~190k miles. I apologize for the long post but want to give as much info as I can. It has started getting cold here in Ral, NC. and I have noticed a strange occurrence (happened 3 or 4 times in the past 2 or 3 weeks) with the motor when trying to start the car...

  3. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    First time posted here but been reading the forums for 2 years now. You guys are awesome! So with that being said I have surfed the internet to the end and can’t figure out what’s with my Passat. 1999 Passat 1.8 Turbo Manual speed. 188K mileage. Started two weeks ago, normal driving around 1800...
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok, Im having this issue as of 2 days ago. Stumbling at partcial throttle and occasionally dieing at idle. Very random and as soon as I fire it back up its fine for awhile. No check engine light, no warning other that loss of boost when you get into it alittle. At least thats how it feels...
  5. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Is this Passat a completely new car or a mid life upgrade on the B6? When the "new" B5 came out it was really only a change to the exterior with most of the parts remaining the same. From a timing point of view it is probably more likely to be a B6.5 unless VW have got their self in gear to...

    Hoping someone out there has a new or decent used but unneeded 97 Passat 2.8L VR6 mid or center muffler laying around. Mine is gonna need to be replaced soon and those bad boys are pretty pricy new. Or, maybe someone could recommend a place to buy one at a reasonable cost. Thanks!!!!

    Picked up an 04 1.8t manual wagon in December and absolutely love it. The car is completely stock as of now, but suspension is coming very soon. I cant believe how useful this forum has already been. Changed the timing belt and a few other things with help from some awesome write up's. Thanks a...

    The past 2 years, I have hosted this and am willing to again. At least at my place, you are free to drink so long as you don't lose control and you are of age to do so. I have ways of making you comply :whistle: I have plenty of parking as you can see in the photos. My neighbors are cool with...
  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So being cheap on the front end has bitten me. My glasspack has pretty much worn out in 2 years and the drone/sound is rediculous. Any tube type or turbo style mufflers that cut down the volume? I just moved out of an apt and I need to be more conscious of my neighbors now. I'm running a...

    My name is John and I am from Mason, Michigan and not only do I have a bad car habit but I also WORK in the dealership! I just bought a 2001 B5 Passat 1.8t auto (that needs a turbo and some other work) and will be swinging in here for info from time to time.

  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm going to have my Timing Belt changed soon and I want nothing but the best for my baby. Cherry Hill Imports (where I usually go) is okay, better than Presteige. But not spectacular. I'm willing to go the distance. Are there any great dealers around me?

    On the way home yesterday the wipers froze mid stroke and now won't finish the cycle. I tried to push them down but they did not want to budge. Any suggestions? Would the motor be dead or is the linkage just shot, which explains why I can't push the blades down. Does anyone know of any forms...
