  1. random seat memory positions

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Wife's car looses the drivers seat memory position. Wife has memory button #1 and I have memory button #3. Some times the seat doesn't go to it's memory position on either #1 or #3, how can that be? It has a tendency to be further off on my setting than hers, by inches I'm talking. 2003 GLX V6...
  2. Random multiple cylinder missfire

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    This is my first time ever posting and I’m probably a novice at best when it comes to this kind of thing so I’m sorry if this is in the wrong place . I have a 2011 cc sport with the 2.0t Engine. I had been getting engine codes for Engine too Lean at idle and decided to replace the pcv/oil...

  8. Random Limp Mode after switch replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As some of y'all followed I replaced the MFS (Multi Function Switch) on the side of my transmission to correct it from going into Limp mode. Within a week I put it in drive and sure as hell it went into Limp Mode :icon_eek: It happened 2 more times :puke: It hasn't thrown a code yet. Before it...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2000 passat Wagon V6 manual - 209,000 miles In August went to drive it & it started fine & then 5 seconds later it ran like shit. Since some loosened the lug nuts on sons 86 GLI - I assume something was put in gas tank - (would be 3rd time that's happened COWARDS). So I drained the tank using...
  10. Random oil light :(

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    There have been a lot of topics about oil lights on google, but nobody seems to have the same problem I do. Oil light will randomly come on and beep once, and it will go away when I shut the engine off and start it back up. It will not come on for another day or two, after driving 50-100...
  11. Random Stalling - CEL - Several Codes Read

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My 2006 B6 Passat on occasion will just stall while driving. Not all the time either. When trying to restart it takes a few cranks to start and have to give it some pedal to do so. I was driving down the road last night and it stalled. Let it sit for 30 minutes and then drove home (20 minutes)...
  12. Random Misfire and specific cyclinder misfire

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Thought I would just drop this here. I have had the misfire for some time. It's a pain and hard to fix. Here is what I have found to solve my issue. The 1.8l has a heat shield of a type over the engine. It is plastic and mainly for looks. But it does work as a heat shield and keeps the heat IN...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    1.8t 02, 230k mi. Just started this infrequent issue. Usually happens while waiting at a stop light just as pulling away. Very short but significant stumble, quick recovery. Stumbled once while cruising on freeway. This morning a random stall waiting at a light. No warning, just quit but...

  16. At my wit's end -- random tube!!! 2.8L V6 Passat GLX 4motion

    B5 Garage
    Hey all, thanks for taking a look. I was following this fantastic guide on refreshing the PCV system today, and it was largely a huge success. However; when I went to button everything back up I noticed a stray tube and could not for the life of me remember seeing this when I was taking it...
  17. Random chime while driving

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Like the seat belt chime, but just one. No warning lights with it. Although, the bottom middle display doesn't work (just lit up solid red), so maybe if it did I'd see whatever this chime is warning me about? It's completely at random. Doesn't seem to be associated with any particular speed...

    Hello, I own a 2007 Passat Wagon 2.0 FSI. Automatic, 110K miles Randomly, the car jerks when slowing down from 5th to 4th gears. This happens a lot when I am coming down the hill. Any thoughts ? Regards Felix
  19. Rough idle, Random P0340 and P0012

    B5 Garage
    Engine idles a bit rough. I get random codes P0340 and P0012. Immediate thought was bad cam sensor so I replaced that. Still getting the codes and the rough idle. As soon as you give it the slightest amount of throttle it runs like a champ. Codes only pop at idle. Thoughts? Thanks.

    Hey guys, so I was driving to work in pa last Saturday and I was heading up a hill and felt a click, or a slight pop, and my steering started to wander slightly, I then tried to compensate with the wheel and it seemed harder to move. I pulled into McDonald's and turned the wheel lock to lock...
