    Hello. Most of you should know that i'm not from US and english is not my native language. Around a month ago I bought a set of two seals that I thought were the crankshaft ones. Any way, comparing them to the one I had previously bought it's pretty obvious that these parts are not the same...

    During the last few oil changes on my 2002 1.8T with just under 50000 miles, the dealer calls and tells me something is broken and needs to be replaced. This time he says the is an oil leak and the valve cover gasket and cam seals need to be replaced for $620 and some vacuum lines for $218...

    Hi Guys, What are the symptoms of a leaking cam seal, and how do we differentiate that from a leaking VCG? I searched PW but did not find any writeups on cam seal replacement. I have a 1.8T AWM 2002. Thanks in advance for all you help.

    I have bad seals on all 4 injectors and wanted to confirm what I have found before I place an order for my 2004 AWM engine: - 2 seals per injector - both seals the same size (7.5 mm ID, 3.5 mm thick) http://www.germanautoparts.com/Volkswagen/Passat/Fuel/94/6 Does that sound right? Thanks!

    I got my kit today from ECS to fix all the leaky spots on my 2002 V6 ATQ. I knew the VC gaskets were bad in spots, suspected the cam caps were in bad shape, and figured the CCT gaskets were gone as well. Sure enough, the cam cap on the left side was a real leaker. The right side wasn't so...

    Hello again, My friend's '03 Passat 1.8T (AWM) has, for the past few weeks, been throwing out a pretty good amount of acrid-smelling smoke out of the exhaust. It runs just fine, its not a HG. In fact, it is basically fine after being started up until driven for a minute. What and where is...

    I have 113K on my 2001.5. The cam seals (caps, really) are leaking oil, enough to drip onto the exhaust manifold on the passenger side and burn. I have done the tensioner seals and the valve cover gaskets, THANKS TO THE HELP OF ALL OF YOU! There isn't much room between head and firewall to...

    My 2002 Passat Wagon 1.8T is giving off that dreaded burning oil smell and smoke from the rear passenger side of the engine compartment. The car has close to 90K miles on it now and the gaskets have not been changed. I'm taking in next week to my independent mechanic to have the valve cover...

    Hi all- Went to the shop (Induktion MS in Severn, MD) to get my CV joint checked out since I noticed the 'black ring of death' during my last oil change. They took a look at the whole car and came up with this list of baddies :cry:: Driver side CV joint is shot, replace axle - I knew this was...

    Just like the title states, I have water leaking in through my rear door seals. It seems like it pools at the bottom of the sill and then starts leaking in. I caught it leaking last night. The bottom of the door card is wet and I'm not sure what to do. Thoughts? BTW I've verified that it's...

    Hi all, new member here and looking for a little guidance. I have a 1999 Passat AEB 1.8t auto trans and have gear oil leaking out of both of the differential seals(where the transaxles bolt onto differential shaft flanges). A little history of the car: It was a friends car until the...

    I just finished replacing the Cam Chain Tensioner seals on both sides of my Passy and I no longer leak any oil, yay. It took 3 hours per side and I let the silicone set for 24 hours. If any V6ers have their CCT gaskets leaking, I have a few pointers, it is a relatively easy job. I also used the...

    Hey guys, So my timing belt kit is being installed as we speak by an indie mechanic and is going to be done within a couple hours or so. I got the complete kit from blauparts.com (which I was very glad I did.. great company.. free shipping, free oil filter, and several other free items)...

    2k 1.8T, 94k miles. In looking at my intake manifold area, I've noticed a SLIGHT amount of fuel deposits and grunge around some of the injectors. My question is, as cheap as the seals are (roughly a buck each), is it good preventative maintenance to go ahead and replace them while I'm doing...
