    1998 Passat AEB. Ever since I bought the car like 3 years ago if I fill the gas tank up completely when I go to start it the first time I would have to kinda hold the gas to keep it running but within about 20 seconds it would be fine and never have to worry about it unless i topped off the tank...

    I am a student at the University of Oklahoma, and one of my finance professors just claimed that Tesla and Volkswagen are direct competitors in the U.S. along with BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. Just thought this was a wild statement seeing as these cars (Tesla and VW) are worlds apart.

    Hey everyone, I just bought a 2002 VW Passat GLX 4motion knowing it didnt have heat, but I was under the impression from the seller all it needed was a flush. The car temperature gauge reads 190 once up to temp, and it stays there for the duration of the ride. When you turn on the climatronic...

    It seems like computer engages something and engine begins shaking really bad. Code is 300 misfire. I heard vacuum leak sound from combination valve behind valve cover. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hello all, I read almost all the threads on this issue but I could not find any satisfactory solution. I have had the problem that my B5, 1.8t, SW is pulling to right. I got the alignment done at Sears. The results came fine. But still it pulls to right so much so on highway it feels annoying...

    Purchased a new MAF, but wasn't the problem, (sneaky vac. leak) so I have a VW/Audi OEM not OE $90.00 shipped in US, VERY CHEAP!!! call dealership and see how cheap. If your B5 is just not running right, good chance it's an old faulty MAF, in many cases over oiled K&N's kill these things, and...

    Thought the one light wouldn't work, turns out it was a dead bulb. Realized after I bought a new one. Durp. It's in perfect visual condition, the only reason it's "almost perfect" is because the push switch for the passenger side doesn't work. That light will still turn on with the center...

    What a difference some new engine mounts make. I changed the 2 bottom ones. However, I still get some feadback from the shifter. In 5th gear, if I accelerate and let off the gas, I can feel in the shifter. Bounces back. Was this normal in these cars new or do I need to change more? I Can still...
