  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all - I am in the process of replacing a bunch of parts that I destroyed when I slid my front end into the metal bumper of a parked car this past winter. Some of the fan blades for the viscous cooling fan were destroyed on the top bit. When I spin the fan clutch, it has a bit of a wobble to...

    I am new here, I am hoping that someone can help me. I have a 17 TSI Passat, and over this past winter I have noticed 2 strange things going on with me AC. Not sure if it's normal, but this is the first car I have had with a digital climate control. First thing I notice is that if I have the...

    I was getting NO HEAT out of my vents...5 or 10 degrees above ambient...Tops. Made the last two weeks here in NJ a real joy. I took advantage of the first above freezing day here to do a backflush. I backflushed my 2000 V6 ATQ today for two hours. 1/2 gallon of CLR and 3.5G of hot (when I...

    Always a puzzle with these cars. I'm driving along, everything was normal up to this point. Hit the left hand turn signal, and it starts blinking at about twice the normal rate - very noticeable. So, when we get to the parking lot, I jump out and confirm that the left turn signal lights (all...

    Hello, I have a VW CC 2.0t 2010 that i bought a few months ago and it ran fine for about 3-4 months. The first issue happened when cold weather started. It was a battery problem, my car would not start if i let it sit for the night. I bought a new battery and the issue was fixed. The car...

    I have been trouble shooting some codes. In doing so, I am finding some anomalies with the car. Not sure if they're critical or not. Would appreciate any help. I noticed today that the "heater pipe (3B0906391)" is not plugged into anything. I spent about 45 minutes looking everywhere for a...

    Hello all: I just put a brand new serpentine belt on my V6. I bought a generic Auto Parts store (Carquest) belt. Car runs normally, but the belt is wearing on the outside it seems to me more than it should. I have never replaced a belt before and do not know what kind of wear is normal. The...

    Hello everone, This is a great forum, btw, glad to join. My question may, and hopefully, is simple to answer. I have an 04 1.8t Passat, automatic with Tiptonic. I have recently had a head gasket repair done in May and oil cooler replacement done last month. Since this has been a costly...

    From reading the factory gauge has a range it uses to keep the gauge on 190. From monitoring the actual engine coolant temp I see times where it is above the indicated range, sometimes by 15 degrees. Has anyone else logged actual engine coolant temp and can share their numbers? Thanks.

    Well, it's time for the dreaded emissions test. I had to replace both flex pipes on my downpipe which resolved a lot of engine codes. The car is a 2004 B5.5 V6 4 Motion ATQ engine. I have a pesky P0441 and P2096 left to deal with. Today I decided to look for a vacuum leak. I went to replace all...

    I took my car on a drive for 15 minutes and these are the levels I got. Max speed I went was 45-50 mph. It's a 2002 V6 ATQ I surprisingly haven't had a check engine light yet and my secondary air system has been "complete" according to the OBD II

    This is a picture of part number 035133989A (superseded by 06B133989C). It connects the air intake hose to the diverter valve via the smaller attached hose, on the B5 ATW engine. Is the depression in the top of the plastic elbow by design? My gut feeling is "no". It looks like the clamp...

    Hi all, I have a 2003 1.8T passat wagon and I've noticed the front is always higher than the rear without any load in the car. Is this normal? Or have my springs been replaced with wrong replacements, or do you think the rears are going? I am wondering because if I were to get lowering springs...

    I just got a NewSouth indigo InHg/Psi guage for my 2002 Passat 1.8t stock. When the car is off the needle sits at the first InHg notch. When it idles in neutral the needle sits at 24-25 InHg. Is this normal?

    after driving to LA then going back to the bay area, i noticed my rims were full of grease. to my surprise, after removing the wheel, this is what i find, it seems like an abnormal tear or damage from a boot.

    My 2004 B5.5 Passat TDi Estate with a Comfort Control system has developed a strange fault. The problem first showed as bad fogging up of the interior, requiring me to use the air con ('Auto' setting) to keep the windows clear, even though it was cool outside. Otherwise the interior of the car...

    Hi, we just bought a 2007 3.6 4motion wagon. Generally we are pleased with it, but I might be having a problem. When traveling about 50 to 60mph, if you lightly step on the gas, the wagon pulls to the left. You have to cut the wheels slightly to the right to compensate, but remember to...
