First time I have used this program. Was easy to get setup. Plugged it in read the code and logged a reading of 3.3 on the...

Plugged it in read the code and logged a reading of 3.3 on the maf that didn't change with the rpm change. From what I've read it should...

    Hi everyone, So I installed the boost gauge (not completed it) on my AEB 1.8t, 98 model. I wonder if the boost reading indicates a healthy turbo boost. Below is the link. I recorded it in the parking lot but while driving the needle barely moves to 4 (above 0 ) when I floor the throttle...

    I have been going through this 1999 Passat, AEB engine, and got concerned that my temp gauge never reached normal operating temp. 190 degrees if I am correct. So I took a reading with VCDS and found that the top temperature I got was 60 degrees Celsius which is around 140 F. My temp dash temp...

    Hi everyone, Wifes 2003 Passat GLX 4motion is having A/C issues... heres what I've noticed so far: Climatronic screen does not read outside temperature, in place of where the degrees usually hang out, I see two dashes -- as a result, when I put A/C on low, its just the blower. It does blow...

    Hi, I have a b5.5 and recently got a p0420 catalyst threshold below efficiency. I really don't want to buy a new catalytic converter as I want to do all the least expensive parts first. here were my fuel trim readings: STFT3: -100.6% STFT1: 4.6% Load value: 7.8% LTFT3: -100.6% LTFT1: 2.3%...

    I am going to have to stop reading all of the good technical posts on the forum - as my car seems to then develop the very same problems/issue addressed in the recently read post! :banghead: For example: Left hand vent light has gone out Fold Flat side mirror switch is bad (the mirrors will...

    About a year ago, I picked up an 02 Passat that ran and drove, but had a long list of issues. Almost all of the useful info that I got off the web to fix it, came from here. I replaced the radiator, engine mount, brake pads, oil changes, ABS module, and a few other things. Awesome forum, but all...

    Reading /map light bulb change causes sparks and trunk release repeat cycling WTFVW? I was changing the left reading light / map light bulb ( 194 / W5W ) in the overhead console of my '98 B5 and removed the black 1/4-turn holder. Replaced the bulb and was going in via the big sunroof motor...

    ABS sensor replaced, VAG COM reading "sporadic open circuit", is it not in enough? 2004 Passat (GLX 4Motion, if it matters). I had a recurrent situation where the ABS light went on and I got that "crunch" noise. Intermittent - the next time driven, the light would be off, then after five or six...

    I jumped the car with a dead battery and didn't let the ECU ( Unitronics BT software tune)reset it's self as I forgot and didn't think about it at the time. It starts and idles but falls on its face giving it throttle and popped up p1545 TPS malfunction code. Looked at the reading with scan tool...

    (Hi all, I am a noobie to the Vdubs, well newer ones anyway) and something I have not read is people using some type of cleaner degreaser to remove the sludge build up... am I wrong that the build up is a oil based product and that using simple green, or purple power to remove the sludge might...

    I installed a New South Performance oil pressure gauge last night and thanks to all the info on Passat World it went pretty well. When I started the engine I got readings around 15-20 psi at idle, then 40-50 psi at 2000-3000 rpm with peaks around 65 psi as I accelerated. After awhile though, the...

    I recently discovered that my speedo is reading incorrectly. With all the speed limit signs that have the speed read-out right under the sign, I found that it's roughly 4 mph off (reads 64 when the radar says 60). I even went so far as to download a GPS based speedo app to be 100% sure. I have...

    I have a 2008 Passat lux with a 2.0 Turbo. The thermostat should be a 32 degree C or 180 degree F but the gage in the car is showing 200 degree F actual temp. Should I replace the thermostat. Thanks

    I just got a 2004 VW Passat 1.8T sedan and I am trying to figure out what the oil level should be at on this dipstick. I have tried google to no avail. The closest I have come to is that the oil line should be between the two orange markers, but I am afraid of an overfill if I top it off. Any...
