    Hey all just got a 02 2.8 from a friend and was told it needed an alternator no big deal to me but I can’t seem to get fuel prime? When I turn the key no prime but if I bump the starter a few times and then crank it it’ll run if I hold the gas but dies after 15 seconds I’m certain it’s not a...

    Hi all, I've finally gotten myself another Passat after not having one for several years, and am loving it so far. I found one that needs a little TLC in the interior and have been rounding up a list of parts. I've noticed a big hole in the dash where I assumed a storage compartment or...

    This was a sudden purchase as my 2004 VW Passat TDI manual suddenly blew its second turbo in the last 3 years. So it was time to bail on that one and look for something newer. Manual transmissions were hard to find but I found one in Minnesota and bought one there and drove it back. In some ways...

    With the exception of a fuel pump that died instantly and completely (stranding the wife, not me :) ) my Passat has been stone cold reliable over the past 12 years and 160,000 miles. Almost too much so. I am on a number of original parts that I am worried will come home to hit me with a stream...

    I notice if i drive it normal everything is fine but if i give it gas from a standing stop the shift from 1-2nd seems to flair a bit not slip but just a slight flair. Any clues? Car has 105K miles and as far i can tell im sure the tranny has never been serviced.

    So i noticed that the valve cover gasket is already weeping at 30K miles, I would expect this at maybe 80K+. It's not bad but before it makes a mess and if i can get it changed under warranty then why not. The transmission shifter input seal is weeping. This is on top of the transmission...

    like if I needed anymore but I couldn't let it go. It's a 2002 Passat GLS 4motion. The only downside is that it doesn't have sunroof but the 4motion setup is very appealing and I like a lot that it doesn't have all the whistles that the GLX have, I don't care for them. The V6 engine jumped...

    So with another one on the way (baby), my wife and I decided it's time to upgrade to another vehicle, this time something a little bigger. Don't worry though, we kept our Passat. After months of deliberating and deciding between an entire slew of cars and SUVs, looking at everything from a 2013...

    So last weekend I pick up a 2001 GLS 1.8L with about 129,500 K miles, the ad said the motor needed to be replaced because metal was in the oil. After some research I found out these cars have a oil sludge problem, so worst case the engine would have to be replaced. ( I can also pick one up from...
