  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am not asking for help or advice. I am posting this as a solution that worked for me in case anybody else has the same problem. My car was running fine except intermittently the engine would stop for a split second and then start again and continue as if nothing had happened. It shocked me...

    1999 Passat 1.8t GLS tiptronic. (B5) 40,000 miles (Yes, NOT 140!) Perfect condition, other than rear-end damage. Clean title. Yep, I got rear-ended. The car is totally driveable, but the insurance company says "no dice," and I must make a decision whether to keep it or walk away. It's in...
  3. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I would like to send a letter to VW of America to find out if VW ever plans on building another Passat wagon. I bought my wife a brand new 2005 Passat TDI Wagon in February 2005 and she absolutely loves the car. She says she wants to drive it until it reaches 300-400k. She likes it for the...

    So it recently decided to be summer. When the ambient temp is over 90+ degrees my car wont start. (read some other threads but nothing seems spot on) Car wouldn't start yesterday, started last night and this morning. Then not when trying to leave work today. :-( I think its electrical because...

    i guess this is another cautionary tale of why you should change your own oil, but even after this i'll still be damned changing it myself. how could i have been so oblivious not to realize that "tire rotation" means fucking wheel locks? i used a coupon for a premium oil change which included...

    I'm interested to know how the test pipe affected the sound inside the engine compartment. Any change in sound? Did the car "feel" any different in terms of resonance? Driving impressions? Just curious. I'm still chasing a buzzing feeling in the pedals from the exhaust/cat. Took it to a muffler...

    Hey all, I'm looking for a good source for a combi(nation?) valve for my ATW 1.8T engine among other things. I know we've got ECS Tuning at our disposal, who else is out there selling VW-focused parts for a reasonable sum? (The Marketplace link just takes me to Tire Rack, not very helpful if...

    Trying this again - I know I've come up empty, but it's been at least a year or so since I put out the call to find a good place to take my car. I work in Monrovia, my husband works in West Los Angeles, so either general area works. Anything open on a Saturday further out also works. I need...

    Does a chipped Passat tend to overpower the stock suspension, particularly with the stock 15" tires. I am tempted to chip but I can see myself wanting to spend lots more to balance the car out afterwards :nervous: . Money that would be be difficult to convince my financial adviser is wisely...
  10. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was originally going to lower the car with H&R springs and Sports, but my wife drives it almost exclusively. Lowering may not be the best for her (from a bashing things standpoint), and she doesn't really care about stuff like that. However, the car is really mushier than I can stand. I...
