    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2001 Passat GLX V6 95K I’ve had this car since 2004 and for the first time ever the dreaded Oil Pressure light screamed at me today. I’ve researched this question here but this incident is different than others I’ve read about. In my case I was driving some curvy roads on the way to the...
  3. ATQ Oil Pressure -Zero-

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, I'm a long time lurker but given that searching yielded nothing that seemed to mirror my issue, I'm no a noob poster. The Story: I have been having an issue with the oil dummy light coming on intermittently and rarely for about 6 months at this point. As a consequence of the first...

    Hello!! I have an annoying tire pressure light in the dashboard that first blinks and after a while lits solid yellow. Started to light when the winter tires were put on, as they do not have sensors in the valves. The summer tires are now on again, but the tire pressure lamp continues to shine...

  7. fuel pressure regulator/filter -- too(?) tight fit --

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    OK, I understand that with 60 PSI / 4 bars pressure, the fuel pressure regulator has to be a tight fit inside its can, but this is ridiculous. Any suggestions for non-destructively getting a new FPR (or even just the old one) into the containment can? This is a 1996 AFC 12-valve 2.8 engine, but...

  10. Boost and Oil Pressure Gauges

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Looking to possibly get the setup where these two gauges are either above the steering wheel just below the factory cluster, or I've also seen them on the left pillar. Just curious if anyone knows where to get these setups, and if or why one is better than the other as far as visual...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just finished dropping the oil pan due to low oil pressure warning coming on after 20 minutes of driving. Had it towed to an unfamiliar repair shop as I was out of town. They flushed the engine, did an oil change, and supposedly dropped the pan and check the oil pump pickup screen for...
