    B5 Garage
    Hi I have a 2004 VW Passat 1.8T GLS with a stumble misfire when warmed up from a cold start. Under boost the engine would cut out on all cylinders when the gas pedal is pressed down at a certain point. I have a crack in the exhaust flex pipe before the catalytic converter I thought the down...
  2. Car turns once, thumps(?), won't start

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I say thump for lack of a better word. It shakes the car but only once, just like a misfire, but one time. I've spent most of the past two weeks trying to figure this out, but with no luck. I've searched these forums as well as other VW forums with to avail as well. I got the codes pulled (I do...
  3. 2001 Passat, ECM only allows car to start once.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2001 (B5 I believe) Passat with the V6. This spring I started having intermediate starting problems and the transmission would go into safe mode. I believe I now have the problem tracked down to a faulty ECM (engine control module). If I try to start the car the engine will crank but...

  6. Multiple problems at once, What just happened?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was driving down the road today in my 2000 Passat VR6 4motion. All of a sudden the engine shutdown. After a bunch of searching around I found that fuse 32 was blown, so I replaced it. AS soon as I turned on the ignition key on, it blew again. Did this twice. The owners manual labels 32 as...
  7. Wierd shift flare - happens only once after each startup

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I recently bought a cheap 1999 Passat 1.8 with the 4-speed auto transmission (01m i think?). I've since noticed a rather strange issue with the transmission. The first time the car upshifts into 3rd gear, it usually seems to flare slightly when shifting (RPMs jump up by 50 - 150 on the...
  8. MAJOR smoke from exhaust only once warm, what's the culprit?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Having issues with this 01.5 sedan that I recently bought. The car had a blown, oil starved and severely sludged engine when I bought it, and I pulled a good, running engine from an Audi A4 as a replacement. While I had the good engine out of the car, I replaced all the gaskets, seals, etc...

    I have an AEB B5 that is having some problems. First, I have a boost leak (I am running peak boost at 3 or 4 psi). I have checked the vacuum lines coming off of the intake manifold and they all seem to be fine. I'm not exactly sure where else to look for leaks. Second, I had installed a test...

    So I'm FINALLY getting the bodywork and lowers for the VR6 before the s/c goes in.
