    Ok....99 1.8T with 135k.......replaced ICM about 5 years ago at 60K and I appear to have the same symptoms............cyl #3 missing 100%...I swapped in a new plug, no change..........I swapped #2 coil for #3...miss still on #3. Is it the ICM or could it be a bad injector? Codes say "miss cyl #3"

    I have a 00 passat. Everytime a push the gas in the car, it starts to go and then hesitates for a second ot two and then it goes. It does it in every gear and it shifts fine so I didn't think it is the transmission. Any ideas?

    Have been late in posting this. So, I bought a new Acura TL Type-S, 6 speed manual in the spring and sold my B5. My Passat sold in just 2 days, first person that looked at it. I guess my anal-retentiveness and maintenance records paid off. Anyway, I have a HUGE gratitude to everyone on...

    The photos of the $10 DIY Tiptronic Fluid Tool in the information base have broken. Is there another source of pictures for this clever device? Want a visual for constructing the U shaped filler end.

    base model, no power windows, no power locks. The seat, though relatively ergonomic, feels like a lawn tractor seat. All which make it obvious how inexpensive electronics have become because it does have outside temp, cruise, and speed-sensitive radio volume. it feels like i'm going down the...

    So, last Friday, I get a letter from the dealership where I do all of my maintenance. (I drive an '03 Passat 1.8T manual and my wife an '03 Jetta 2.0 manual). They say they'll offer me up to 120%* of my original MSRP on a trade-in if I buy a new '06 or '07. So we go in. (*- yeah, "up to"...
