    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, well, my little green veedub has finally gone to the giant car lot in the sky. ( at least for me ) 379k miles was a good life for the little thing. Pretty much a blown headgasket and suspected warped head did it in. And I'm not putting any more money into it, when the cost of...
  2. Thanks, and peace out.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Due to circumstances somewhat beyond my control...I traded my B5.5 in late last week. My wife's car died - for good (stupid Saturn Vue with CVT) - and she's unable to drive a manual, which meant no assuming ownership of the Passat. I wanted her to have something nice, and safe, for us to drive...
  3. Rough idle, CEL and then peace

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The other day my wife called me from in front of the house to say that the car ran really rough when she started it and had a flashin CEL light. She was smart enough to shut it down right away. While talking to her, she tried it again and that time it ran fine and had a solid CEL, so she drove...

    The Black Hole
    It was raining here when I heard, so it was fun to learn what I thought was thunder was actually Sean Hannity having an aneurysm. After all these years of the entire US foreign policy being to bomb the shit out of people and stuff, I thought it would go to that clever John Bolton chap. Discuss.

  17. Cheap peace of mind

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My teeth are whiter, my kids are getting straight “A’s” and the Arctic Heron is no longer on the endangered species list. That’s all because I replaced my vacuum lines. Actually, I didn’t notice one jot of difference in performance, but I do have a bit more peace-of-mind. The old braded...
