  1. Replaced CCM, OBD won't read codes and other oddities

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I bought a 2000 Passat 6-cyl 4Motion a couple of years ago, and the car is now due for emissions inspection. Brought it over there and they can't pull the codes from the OBD port. Gets power, but no data. I can read *something* from the car with my cheapo scanner (RPMs, engine temp, MIL status)...
  2. 04 V6 MT FWD - Replaced RF wheel bearing now worse noise and ABS light

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I read through a number of posts looking for similar experiences, as thought I'd post to see if my situation has been encountered before and share how my - eventual - resolution. My 2004 GLX wagon (2.8L V-6, 5spd manual, FWD, 109k miles) has been making more noise recently. Based on the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2005 Passat with the 2.8 V6, only has about 80,000 miles on it. At about 75,000 miles, I did a timing belt job on it using a kit from Blauparts. This included valve cover gaskets, timing chain tensioner gaskets, etc. I followed the instructions precisely and only used RTV in the...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I replaced my starter. Removed two connectors on the oil pan to allow the removal. Disconnected the battery prior to the task for two days. When I completed the replacement the vehicle started fine. I didn’t drive it but let it run for 20 minutes. Shut down the car and tried to start it and...
  5. PCV replaced, still having issues and then some. Advice / help?

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I have been having some issues that all seemed to match up with a bad PCV valve. My car has been idling VERY rough even to the extent of dying twice at stoplights last week. Friday I took it into a local mechanic and they "thought" the problem was due to a bad PCV valve and replaced it. I picked...

  7. Replaced locking mech, now door handle sticks out

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all, I'm working on replacing parts on my newly-acquired W8 one by one. Tonight's project was to replace the faulty door lock mechanism on my driver's side door. The swap went fairly smoothly and the new (VW-OEM) unit is now working perfectly as it should. One weird thing though is that...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello. The rear main crankshaft seal was replaced past Friday on 2010 Passat with DSG transmission. I haven't had a chance to drive the car until today (wife's car) and noticed a few things. 1.

  9. Epc light and loss of power after power steering supply line replaced

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi I'm in desperate need of guidance. I bought a 2012 vw Passat about 5 months ago with 60k miles and since put on 10,000 miles as I drive a lot. Love the car but a week ago it started spewing power steering fluid everywhere around the reservoir and we concluded that until we could see where it...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Have a 2000 Passat 1.8L. Car has been pretty good for the last couple years. My son broke off the knob on the power mirror adjustment switch so I ordered another one. Carefully pulled the door panel and disconnected the wiring. Pulled the switch out and put the new one in and then...
  11. O2 sensors replaced, CEL back on

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, I'm back after replacing both downstream oxygen sensors. I used the universal OEM BOSCH. I followed the instructions and I'm sure I did not miss anything. Before I go back and double check, I wanted to post the codes in case there is something else. Car runs great, very smooth, I'm not...
  12. Replaced the AC orifice tube

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Had to replace the orifice tune before it gets too hot down here. I was pretty sure that was all the AC needed, since everything worked OK. It graudally stopped cooling, and when I asked a shop to do it, they said new compressor even though it cooled for a few weeks after an evac and recharge...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Is this a coincidence? I replaced the fuel pump on my wife's 2004 Passat B5.5 which was very easy BTW. Started right up and Drove it around about 10 miles, no problem. After a day, the gas cap warning light illuminates. :confused: Is this coincidence and the gas cap seal is no good anymore...

    I purchased a 2009 Passat less than a month ago. When I did the test drive, the warning "Check engine Service Now" came on and I was unable to accelerate above 20mph. The dealership replaced the throttle body and after about 2 weeks of having the car the same light came on (no trouble...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I'm hoping someone here can help me out with my 05 passat's "STOP oil pressure" issue. So about two weeks ago I was driving on the highway (between 50&65mph) I got the "STOP" warning. I pulled over, had the car towed to a mechanic. The mechanic told me the oil pump would need to be...
