    Does anyone know if a leaky cam seal or possibly a bad cam chain adjuster would be covered under the powertrain warranty? VWoA says no because it's not part of the powertrain. Huh!? I just had my oil cooler replaced under warranty, why not this? They recomended that I bring it to the dealer...

    Cam Tensioner/Adjuster Seals - Replacing I finally broke down to have the front lower ball joint recall done for my 99' 1.8T passat with 139,000k today because my front wheels were ready to fall off (not really). The Stealer informed me that I need to have my cam adjuster seals replaced, for...

    I want to say thanks to everyone here for the wealth of information about anything you could want to know on a Passat. This site is part of what makes me love the car so much. I’m currently searching for a good indy to do my timing belt on my 1.8T. I’ve called a number of mechanics and the two...

    Hi, 1999 VW Passat 1.8T I replaced the fuel injector seals earlier today (to get rid of the occasional smell of gasoline in the cabin). After driving to work and back (about 15 miles) I now have a Check Engine Light on the console. In addition, gasoline odour inside the cabin is higher. One...

    Can you guys tell me what parts I will need to replace cam seals? Cam shaft adjuster seals???? I do not want to go to the dealer so I will probably go to some garage and do that. It leaked after extreme cold when I had left my PST outside. Thank you in advance.

    CAM seals? or CAM Tensioners-- although i'm not familiar on this part of the engine- recently been reading lots of differnt posts related to this part of the engine. Ever since VW changed over to Synthetic oil- (now for the past 3 oil changes), My car would 'clatter' very lightly at start...

    How long would it take the stealership service tech to repace the cam seals? Just curious as I dropped the car of this AM and I am not sure how long it would have taken for them to do it. They also replaced my seat frame (making noise) and replaced the driver's side door control panel...

    Been Sharkified !!!!! Re: My Cam tensioner seals are leaking? (Do timing belt also?) I took my '99 V-6 manual in for recall service today and they said my cam tensioner seals are leaking. From what I have read, it may make sense to get the timing belt, etc done at the same time since they have...

    I've done a bunch of searches trying to find out if any of you have replaced valve stem seals and what steps I should take to replace mine. After some research, I have concluded that my morning startup (and sometimes afternoon) exhaust smoke is a result of oil leaking through the deteriorating...

    One more thing to add to the list of things that have gone wrong with my 2000 V6 variant. Over the past few weeks I've been smelling something burning once the car has warmed up. The smell is fairly obvious at each stop light and definately obvious when I pull into the garage, both in the car...

    Anyone ever done this job themselves? I've got a 98 B5 with 62K miles and I can smell buring oil when driving it. I'm going to replace the valve cover gaskets, but I've also heard that there could be a problem with the cam seals leaking. They're inexpensive to buy, but I don't know how...

    Well I have had these clunking sounds coming from what feels like the driver's side suspension for years now but whenever I ask the dealer to take a look at it, they can never hear anything. :mad: So here are my pics from this weekend. I got the car up on jack stands, and grabbed each front...

    I'm losing oil so the dealership diagnosed that I need the cam tensioner seals replaced under powertrain warranty. What's the process to replace them? Do they take off the front end as they would for the timing belt? I have a V6.

    No engine mods, 40 miles daily highway driving. No racing (other than traffic!) Out of the blue I'm getting oil smoke at stoplights from under the hood. I take it in to the dealer and after taking it apart they say "leaking valve cover seal right side and leaking cam seal". It's covered...
