  1. PCV, Vacuum Lines, and some other questions

    B5 Garage
    Hi All, Got a rough idle only on cold starts for about a minute or so and then back to 100% normal. No codes, no CEL. Did some searching, think it could be related to vacuum lines. So planning on replacing all four of them with silicone line. 10 feet should be enough right? Do I need to get...

  6. PCV replaced, still having issues and then some. Advice / help?

    Volkswagen Passat B8 Discussion
    I have been having some issues that all seemed to match up with a bad PCV valve. My car has been idling VERY rough even to the extent of dying twice at stoplights last week. Friday I took it into a local mechanic and they "thought" the problem was due to a bad PCV valve and replaced it. I picked...

  12. PCV check valve removal difficulties

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Any hints on removing the PCV check valve under the intake manifold on a 1.8T (AUG)? I got the coolant recovery tank out of the way and unplugged the siphon pump from its two longitudinal connections, leaving it attached only to the PCV valve. Removing the screw-type clamp around the body of the...
  13. 034 PCV Refresh

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an 01 with a AWM motor in it. VCG went again so figured I would address the PCV system before putting the new one in. I have the kit, just wondering if I need to remove the intake manifold to get to the hose by the block? Is there a simple way to get to that without removing manifold and...
  14. PCV information

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all, On my V6 B5 Passat, I've had to replace my PCV hoses and jet pump due to the deliciously disgusting burning oil smell syndrome. After replacing them, I realized they had plenty of airflow, but I still had that smell. I didn't buy a new PCV check valve (the green one), but I was able...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, finally warmed up enough to get my hands dirty with the oil leak issues. Have the PCV replacement hoses/parts, VCGs, RTV, video instructions, etc. Hopefully this goes a little easier than the timing belt job! First time on this job too, so I'm sure I'll run into some snags. So, I...
  17. Help with cleaning PCV system on B5.5 V6 4motion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys, I'm struggling to find a guide on how to clean the whole PCV system, I'm pretty sure just my passenger side rocker cover gaskets are leaking and before they get changed I'd like to clean out the system. I've see a video to remove the main breather hose, but the rest is beyond me...
  18. Clean the PCV system?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    99 V6. I know first step to address oil seepage/leaks is to tackle the PCV system. My tubes seem like they are in pretty good shape - had to remove one end several times during the timing belt change, and it wasn't brittle. The small tubing between components was replaced with silicone like...
  19. 2003 2.8L PCV bad, how to limp until part arrives?

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2003 4Motion wagon, 2.8L 30V, automatic. The PCV started leaking a couple days ago, giant vacuum leak out the vent looking port on the side of the hockey puck PCV valve. I taped over the vent to stop the vac leak and that sort of helps but it still leaks and idles rough. If I pop the...
  20. Question about PCV hoses

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I mistakenly ordered the PCV breather hose and suction pump for the earlier B5 platform (have a 2002 ATQ). It was listed incorrectly as for my vehicle and once I did the reading and looking around in the engine bay I realized my mistake. In taking a look at the hose that was on there before...
