    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, based on the title its no surprise that the VCG's are leaking on my 2003 4Motion wagon. According to the fella the car came from, the gaskets were just replaced. If this is true, then the PCV system is suspect - please correct me if I am wrong. I dug around in the old forum posts and see...

  9. A bit of a different request.
