    2004 V6 4motion Hi folks, My story begins about 12~13 months ago. I'll state the facts, and you can tell me if these issues are from a possibility of one source, or if I may likely have multiple problems. 13 months ago the car would sometimes need more than one turn of the key to crank, until...

    I spent a large part of my day cleaning the engine bay and back of the cylinder head to determine where in the world my oil leak is coming from. I just replaced the cam chain seals and the valve cover gaskets. Those are now leak free, but I still have one more leak that I can't solve. I've...

    Unfortuntaely I'm coming here due to car issues in our 2014 passat 1.8 tsi. The check engine light came on and its running rough. I took it to autozone, and they said it was the camshaft position sensor. Anyone have any tutorials on how to swap that out? It looks like it was easy on older...

    This is longer then I would like, but I wanted to cover all info right off the bat. My wife's 2004 auto box FWD wagon with AWM (1.8T) engine refused to start on her a couple of days ago, after parking it in a friends driveway for a few hours. When I got there, the symptoms were: No fire when...

    I'm new here and am not sure what all parts are called, so please bear with me. :confused: I have a slow coolant leak and after removing the belly pan it looks like it is coming from the box pictured here. This box is located on the drivers side near the front bumper. I haven't been able to...

    Hello All, I have a 2002 Passat 1.8t with 145k miles. I just had the car in the shop where they replaced the timing belt tensioner gasket, oil pan, oil pickup tube and screen. The ABS light is on and comes on as soon as the car is started, which I and the mechanic attribute to a bad module as...

    Just a couple of hours ago I started my car (B5.5 1.T) to return home. The car shakes and has no power. With a lot of trouble and driving slowly I was able to drive home. I scanned it and got these codes: 16684 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected P0300 - 001 - 16687 -...

    Hi everyone and thank you for all the awesome information on this forum. I have been gifted with a 2001 2.8L Passat with heater core issues and a failed water pump which will both be relatively easy projects to fix. This car sadly had to sit on the back burners for a while so I could get a few...

    I had originally revived this thread http://www.passatworld.com/forums/volkswagen-passat-b5-discussion/332949-v6-oil-pressure-attack-dealer-tally.html but a member suggested creating my own. I think I have been through all as they relate to the oil pressure warning switch and I am to the point...

    Ok, 2005 GLS 4 motion wagon, 1,8T, been finding major oil spots on the driveway and almost looks like a dripping trail down the driveway too. The oil level has actually been fine, but the spots seemed to keep coming. Oil was low, topped it off today. Finally had a chance to look underneath...

    Over the weekend I went camping and, stupid me, decided to charge my phone and play music for a bit from my car. Well it then in turn was dead when I went to start it, so we had to jump it. It ran fine the next day, but now it will barely start. It is turning over very slowly, like it almost...

    My AC doesn't work on my 2001 Passat GLX wagon V6 4motion. I checked what fuses were easily visible, checked line pressure, moved the compressor by hand, so it's not seized. Dug into the dash to look at relays (what a pain!) and found an empty spot. Everything that I saw online mentioned...

    So... about a year ago I installed a new steering wheel on my car, and unfortunately it caused airbag light to be on for some reason. I swear I double checked if I plugged everything in etc. but no effect so I left it out like it was, didn't care as much recently (lol) I have noticed though...

    Daughter is turning 16 and we are looking at a 2000 - 2004 Passat as she likes them. I don't want to spend a ton of money but looking at $4k or under and around 100k miles or less. Not sure what to expect from a reliability perspective
