    So this has been ongoing. First, about 7 months ago, started blowing cool air on the passenger side. According to what I have read, this is a partial heater core blockage. Regardless, the car was running fine no problems. About 5 months ago it started heating up after getting off the highway...

    So, I recently bought a beautiful 2003 GLX V6 Wagon FWD. It's in pretty amazing condition and has been fantastic to me. Unfortunately it had a slow coolant leak. After some reading here I found that it was possibly the CTS and went to buy one. I didn't realize I should have bought a new CTS...

    Hi all. I'm looking for some diagnosis help on my 2001.5 AWM B5.5 variant. It's overheated twice now - once about 4 months ago and again last week - and I can't figure out why. Both times it was being driven by one of my teenage sons up some very, very steep mountain roads here in Colorado...

    Took friend to airport yesterday. For the first time since I've owned my 04 GLS 1.8T I turned the temp knob away from cold to the middle dial setting and turned on the defogger. I do remember things actually getting too warm in the cabin and later shutting it off. Got to the airport dropoff...

    I recently replaced a bad AC clutch bearing on my Passat and in the process had to put the car into the service position which opened the cooling system. It's been about a month and a half since the repair and the other day the car overheated. I stopped and let it cool over night and noticed on...

    My Manual 06 B6 Passat started overheating a few months ago. Turned out that my fan stopped working so that's why it was overheating, I looked closely at the main fuse box under the hood and saw that the 50A fuse from the fan (I assumed) had blown. I replaced it and the fan started working...

    1990 passat GL, manual, B3. Started with losing coolant but not a constant amount - sometimes 10 miles and 2 oz and sometimes 10 miles and 2 cups. So took it in to my fave mechanics. Originally flange replacement - said coolant leaking from there. Then a call saying - BTW - water pump is not...

    Need some advice from the Passat experts. Please refrain from calling me an idiot or dullard, I'm already plenty mad at myself already. I noticed some anti-freeze leaking from my 1999 Passat V6. I took it into my local mechanic and he told me the water pump needed to be replaced. And as many...

    Hi all, I tried to search the forums but didn't find a similar problem..I have an 03 passat 1.8t with 67,000 original miles. It has been driving great since I got it a couple weeks back. Today I changed the oil (Mobil 1 0w-40 meets the vw 502 spec.) I don't drive it hard and I've been trying to...

    I have had quite the first week with my 2001 passat 2.8. Got the ac recharged yesterday and worked great. Now today sitting at idle the car creeps past 190 degrees and the ac goes warm. Everything goes back to normal after driving down the road. Anyone else ever have this problem? If so, what...

    Hello, I have a 2000 auto-1.8t passat with 114.5k miles. 3rd owner and as far as I know it has always been serviced at a VW dealer and only touched synthetic oil and the "right" liquids. I've noticed over the month since I'm home from college that when I drive my car, never more than 20 miles...

    Someone rear ended my Passat which caused my car to overheat which in turn cause engine damage..It never overheated before the collision and I need information to provide my insurance company because they are skeptical this indeed occurred..Since there is tailpipe damage I think that it jostled...
