  1. Pipe broken near oil dipstick tube under intake manifold b5.5 1.8t

    B5 Garage
    My passat has a turbo underboost code and before changing the turbo I was inspecting all the lines. I noticed that there was an elbow completely missing that looks pretty important. It goes into the engine right near where the oil dipstick tube is. I have no idea what the purpose of the elbow...

    2001 Passat GLX V6 95K I’ve had this car since 2004 and for the first time ever the dreaded Oil Pressure light screamed at me today. I’ve researched this question here but this incident is different than others I’ve read about. In my case I was driving some curvy roads on the way to the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, I'm a long time lurker but given that searching yielded nothing that seemed to mirror my issue, I'm no a noob poster. The Story: I have been having an issue with the oil dummy light coming on intermittently and rarely for about 6 months at this point. As a consequence of the first...

  12. Just broke the plastic handle oil level Passat 2003 B5.5 AWM engine?

    B5 Garage
    The plastic broke and I just had an old change but big leaks on the Turbo unit so I cannot go by the amount of oil unless through it out and replacing this new oil with another new batch. Could someone that owns a Passat as mine above just go and measure the distance from the very end of the...
  13. Plastic Bits Clogging Oil Screen (Photo Included)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I recently acquired an '02 Passat 1.8T Wagon (auto) w/ 175k miles in really nice shape (runs and shifts flawlessly, not even a door ding) except that the oil pressure light flickers above about 2500rpm. It needs an ABS module, but other than that, it's great. I assumed (dumb, I know), it was...
  14. Diagnosing Oil Leak at back of engine

I just checked again recently and...

  18. Most effective methods to remove oil from spark plug wells

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Folks, As many of yous know, it is common to find oil in the spark plug wells with these cars. The reasons why I am concerned: Enough oil can hydrolock the engine. Small amounts can put the final nail in your older catalytic converter's coffin (not ideal for new cats either). Foul up your...
