    HI everyone, I had the 2003 Passat 4motion GLX V6 at the dealership to replace a rear differential flange and they told me my cam adjuster seals are leaking. I went home, took all the front covers off... everything was bone dry. I replaced the rear plugs in the back (which also felt bone...

    Thank you everyone who posts to this forum. After doing the valve seals through the timing belt the car wouldn't start. If there hadn't been a post about the coolant temperature sensor causing a no start condition I wouldn't have found the problem without sending the car to a mechanic. FYI of...

    So my Passat has been smoking out the exhaust for awhile and today it just began to smoke around the turbo area. Just wondering if that could be the whole turbo going bad or if it might just be the seals. If so how do i check the seals?

    I have seen a few write ups about changing the valve seals. I would assume it is easier to do it with the head removed, but I have seen others saying they used compressed air to hold the valves in from dropping. The local machine shop says the 5V are hard to work on because they are so small...

    My 01 1.8t auto Passat has been leaking auto transmission fluid for about 6 months now. I am fairly certain it is leaking from the output shaft seal on the driver's side. I got the CV axle out and that was a piece of cake. However, the flange that the CV axle bolts to on the transmission...

    Suddenly started seeing smoke and smelling oil. Never a good sign. Having just spent $700 to have a new crank seal put in I just took it back. On inspection the mechanic told me the valve covers are leaking. Not to bad I expect until they estimate it at $1300 :banghead: I am not afraid to...

    They are leaking very severe and need replaced. Until I can fix them, could I do a quick fix with silicon on them and clean out the pcv system so I can keep oil in my car? I drive a 2003 GLX 2.8L V6 with 170K.

    I changed my pads and rotors, it seem like the rear rotors are not working because when i use the e-brake nothing happens, should I bleed the lines again? Second day I changed my valve gasket cover, cam chain tensioner seals and PCV hose and later on I will do my plugs. After letting the...
