    Anybody looking for good deal on a cylinder head? I have one that was rebuilt by Colorado Custom Cylinder Heads about a year ago and never used. Valve job, new seals and guides. It was off an AWM engine, so it has the small ports and VVT. Ready to bolt on, cams, tensioner and CPS are installed...

    So here is my saga: Decided to rebuild a 1.8T engine for my '02 Passat with 300k miles. The new engine runs but there is no oil getting to the top (cylinder head). It does drip oil from around the oil filter, like there is too much pressure there, but the CCT makes a lot of noise and there is...

    Electrical problems will always be my weak point, but thanks to this great , helpful community , I can usually get a situation remedied with your advice. Anyways, little backround history. Due to the Passat only being front wheel drive, I don't drive it much when the snow starts falling and...

Just paid nearly $3200 to have the engine rebuilt(by a place that specializes in VW. Bent valves and messed up a cam ). Put less than 100 miles on the rebuilt engine before the...

    My 08 Passat 2.0T AC works intermittently. On Highway it can be middle of 50s to 70F. On local road it can be 80s, 90s or even above 100 F. I am in Florida. Last year a shop check it with pressure gauge and told me they found nothing wrong with AC. One VW dealer told me (AC control?) valve was...

    I've had problems with my emergency brake levers seizing up and not allowing the brake to fully engage. I finally decided to do something about it so I bought a set of Cardone rebuilt brake calipers from Rock Auto. The first thing I noticed is that the bleeder screws were different sizes from...

    For the past 50k miles, the automatic transmission in my 2006 Passat 2.0T has had very hard shifts from 1st to 3rd. I learned how to live with it, milking the accelerator, but yesterday it finally died. I have a trusty mechanic who will do the labor for ~$750. Now I just need to supply the...

    Hi Everyone, Thanks for reading this. I just had the engine rebuilt & installed in my 2001 2.8 Passat. Been driving it for a week now and everything isn't kosher. The CEL is on. The mechanic iniitally told me to drive it around a bit and let it settle; but on the first day I noticed the...

    A couple months ago I got to work after a 20 minute drive on the freeway and noticed FL wheel was smoking and the rim was all black with brake dust, with 165K on my 04 4Mo wagon I figured it was time to replace/rebuild calipers. Got rebuilt calipers and replaced both sides and everything seemed...

    I'm writing this in hopes it eliminates confusion for anyone else that may need rebuilt calipers for the B5 series Passat that I went through last weekend. Got to work Friday and (FL) brake was smoking, with almost 170K on the 04 4Motion wagon this caliper was sticking, when I did pads and...

    I watched a few videos on youtube, and it seems like very simple job. Each turbo has 2 bearings and 4(?) seals. rebuild kits are pretty cheap. I bought a dead 04 Passat today 1.8T and getting ready to fight it.:lol: Where to download service manual?

    Hey, just got a quote from raxles, and cannot afford at the moment to replace both axles at the same time and the shock absorbers which probably caused the axles to go bad. I heard all bad things about aftermarket ones from oreilly or autozone but at least they have lifetime warranty on them...

    Hi folks, I've had the ABS light on along with the blinking Brake light for a while. I've done research on P-world and found various instructions on how to replace the module. I basically have 2 questions before I get involved with doing this. 1 - Has anyone purchased a rebuilt ABS module...
