  4. 2003 VW Passat 1.8T Wet plugs, no spark

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2003 VW Passat 1.8T with 242,000 miles on it and for the last 2 weeks, I have not been able to get it to start. We replaced 2 of the 4 coil packs about 4 months ago, so we don't think all 4 coil packs have gone bad in that time. When the car was running, it was running rough, and the...

  10. 2000 1.8t Double Platinum or Iridium plugs?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all I understand the engine is spec'd for the Double Platinum plugs (ie NGK PFR6Q's), the car is totally stock, 90k original miles, and the gas mileage is not very good so IMO it's the plugs...anyways, anybody running Iridium plugs over the Double Platinums? Iridiums seem to be about the...
  11. Glow plugs problem

    Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    I have an issue on the Audi 80 1.9tdi. In the morning it's difficult to start up, so I took the glow plugs out and they were all burnt. I put in some new glow plugs but I noticed that there was no current in the wires (when I turn the key on). The fuses are all good, I'm thinking it could be...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  16. How do these spark NGK plugs look? From a 2001 VW Passat, 1.8T engine, 120k miles

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet Pulled these NGK spark plugs from a 2001 VW Passat 1.8T with 120k miles. Do these plugs look like they need to be replaced? The look relatively fine to me for having around 60k miles on them. Do they appear to indicate anything off about the...
