    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...

    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...

    In my on again, off again project I took the heads off 2003 ATQ V6 including intake manifold and all vacuum hoses and Breather hoses. Then I managed to lose all the pictures I took of it. I can't find a diagram of the breather system in the Bentley manual. Can someone please refer me to the...

    You know the saying a picture's worth a thousand words? Well here's one. This is the connector at the bottom of the equation, and as you can see, it's very clogged. There is no way that changing everything above it would help with the pressures if you didn't change this guy. It's definitely...

    2006 Passat 2.0T. Bone stock. 36k on the odometer. Auto trans FWD only. At issue: it's now smoking bad. It doesn't have the sweet smell of antifreeze, the color actually is more of a light gray and I can even see some puffs of blue. Back story: We bought it from a private seller. (The car sat...

    Hey guys I am having trouble diagnosing my engine. So it is running crazy rough my first thought was to change the plugs did it and now she is still running super rough. I noticed a burning oil smell from under the hood and she was in fact burning oil to the extreme that I now have a valve...

    Noticed a leak around VCG and at the oil cooler. Was thinking it might be good idea to take a look at PCV as the car has almost 220K on it. Besides the valve itself what parts should I look at changing or cleaning? I have an AWM.

    Is it worth it to replace B5 PCV breather with B5.5 valve/piping? What parts do I need except obviously the valve itself and the pipes?

    I recently delurked and thought I should express my appreciation for something I read on the forums that helped me. My valve cover gaskets were leaking, and searching here let me know that I should make sure to replace the PCV system. When I was at Pit Row getting some diagnosis help from...

    Today I replaced the PCV Valve on my 2002 1.8t due to jerking(misfires actually) when coming to a stop. I had the problem for about 3 years(~20,000 miles), but it was very subtle and I did not know the cause. I actually thought the jerking was a transmission issue. Recently the jerking increased...

    Hey all. In the interest of keeping our Passat on the road for as long as possible, I'm about refresh the PCV system for the first time. The car in question is a 2005 GLS wagon, 1.8t auto with 157k miles on it. Looks like the PCV system has been gone through by a previous owner before (screw...

    Hey everyone, i was wondering how i would know if my PCV system is bad? I used the wonderful google and found "symtoms" of a bad PCV and suffering none, but my valve cover seems to have sprung a leak. Idk if its because of the oil cooler failure some coolant got into the oil and the engine is...

    Thanks to the forums, I can see clearly that I need to replace my PCV system. There is a nice DIY write-up for B5 with pictures, but I couldn't find one for the B6 (I have an 07 2.0T). Does one exist? I have already replaced the PCV valve unit itself, but an overview of everything else would be...

    On my B5.5 V6, just replaced the large PCV hose and suction pump. The little hose http://a.co/0M4kfFo proves to be more elusive. How do I get the part that attaches to the crankcase? This How-to was super helpful, but doesn't go into accessing the the small hose...

    I am working on a 2001 4 motion and was wondering if I pull the hard plastic PCV hose off of either valve cover with the vehicle idling, should I feel vacuum sucking with my finger?

    I had a PCV failure and went ahead and did a DIY replacement of the bad part. The fault codes disappeared after the fix. However, I have now observed a slow but steady oil leak. I raised the car up, but could not pinpoint it to a specific location. It seems to be originating from higher up and...

    I found this thread thanks to Google: http://www.passatworld.com/forums/b5-information-base/303894-updated-v6-pcv-system-replacement-now-suction-pump.html At the very end it mentions a similar hose that runs down to the crankcase. Mine has broken during the removal of my old brittle PCV...
