    I had water leak onto my passenger floor and submerge my TCM. I took it apart and cleaned it, and it worked.... sort of. When I come to a stop after being in 4th or 5th gear, and try to start up again, the car revs up before clunking into gear. I bought another TCM (used), plugged it in, and the...

    My 2000 Passat (167,000 km, 4cyl turbo, leather, auto, sunroof, etc.) was stolen on a few weeks ago. The police found it the day after. Best car thieves ever, I have to say, as there was absolutely zero apparent damage other than the door lock was "punched" and the ignition lock destroyed...

    Hi all. I bought and installed a $120.00 turbo from eBay today. Couldn't find any direct reviews for a 1998 B5 Wagon but thought I would at least give it a try. I have 140 762 miles on it now. It's a stock setup and driven by a 17 year old. Lets see how long this Chinese stuff lasts. :lol:

    This is an inflammatory topic, don't think I don't know it. Trump is going to be the first ever dictator in the history of North America. It could be good, the best form of government is a benevolent dictatorship. The incumbent can get things done, without worries of being re-elected. This...

    Hi all, I just completed fixing the front coolant pipe o-ring leak (and all other coolant o-rings). Twas a PITA but I have accounted for all hoses and connectors and don't have any left over bolts ;-). While there I replaced a valve cover gasket, injector o-rings, drivers side cam position...

    So I did my transmission filter & fluid change, and not knowing any better, I screwed myself & put in Redline fluid. Ever since, It's slipped, mostly when it's cold, and gets mostly better once it warms up. Then one day I found a post with someone saying that Redling is notorious for causing...

    I recently had the clutch replaced and was told to keep an eye on the coolant level. Sprung a leak yesterday and I believe it may be a part that cools the transmission. Does anyone have a diagram of the whole coolant system or know the pipe I'm referring to. Mechanic bought a new one for me cuz...

    New to this site. Tried searches but felt like a dog chasing his tail. Okay, the car has a manual 5-speed. I watched a you-tube video to remove this axle. The vid didn't explain what transmission was in the vehicle they were working on. I struggled to TRY to remove the axle to no avail. Came...

    Need an opinion. Last night coming home a deer jumped out and hit me. I have a 2001 B5.5 V6. The damage is bent hood and all the plastic on the front grill is broken. Bigger issue is now the radiator is bent where the deer hit it. It looks like it is cracked and leaking at the joint on the...

    Hello, I seem to be having a severe driveability problem with my 2.5 liter 2012 Passat. The engine light initially came on and gave me P0106 for the MAP sensor, which I replaced from ebay and the car drove FANTASTIC for about an hour, then all hell broke loose; sporadic revs upon start up, hard...

    I've browsed so many of the how-to & tech articles here at PW I decided I might as well join. I have an 01 GLS 2WD V6 w/ 5 speed and just finished up a marathon of DIY & not so DIY - Found a dealer willing to work through the 2004 era ECU reflash for "bad" cats New exhaust, both sides front...

    I've been having very infrequent intermittent problems starting my 2013 Passat S 2.5 for the past year and a half. Sometimes it wouldn't start and then, a minute later or hours or days later, it would start as normal. Sometimes I would jump start it, but it would be fine later. This began...

    Replaced my driver door lock actuator last weekend. Yay for dome lights and and headlights-on beepers. :) I noticed that my driver door no longer unlocks when I remove the key from the ignition after a driving trip. All other functions seem to work just fine; remote locks and unlocks normally...
