  6. First oil change - see a potential problem?

    B5 Garage
    Hello - I am a noobie with car maintenance and would appreciate some advice. After having owned a 2000 VW Passat 2.8 L V6 for over 17 years, I decided to do my first DIY oil change. I struggled some with an over tightened oil drain pug and oil filter, but thankfully both are out now after much...

  9. Anyone see my coolant???

    B5 Garage
    Ok, here goes... I have a 2001 VW Passat 1.8T AWM with right at 198K miles. I had an overheating issue and found a faulty waterpump, so I replaced the waterpump and timing belt. So now I have an issue where I'm losing coolant with no visible leaks anywhere. My first thought was I had a blown...
  10. Sun roof drains? I see no sunroof drains..

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So the rear passenger side of my wagon has started to fill with water every time it rains. Did some reading on here and general consensus is that the drains are blocked. So I rip into the rear section looking for these so called drains. Apparently accessible behind the CD player ect. Not a damn...

  12. Let's see how long these bastards last!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    About a year ago I noticed one afternoon all 4 wheel centers on my V6 wagon had evaporated. I was pissed, one I could understand, but all 4! some toerag had removed them for me. I had been loath to replace them at $12 each, but every morning looking at those sad wheels finally got to me. Sprung...
  13. Wow, getting to see pics and post is crazy tough, and not easy to understand.

    The graphic/video thing was very confusing, and I didn't know what "platform" meant until I looked it up. Would be appreciated if sign-up was a bit more user-friendly, took 4 tries, and I've been in IT for 20 years! Thanks for the site though, very helpful!
  14. All this talk about Throttle Bodies. Let's see why mine failed!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    OK, My well published TB died a slow death and I needed to know why. Symptoms included intermittent ABS and TC lights, every couple of days, it'd go nutz and start crazy idling :icon_eek:...800, 1200, 750, 1400...since it's a 5MT, it's more pronounced. I put the last month or so of my VCDS...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, Is there no way to use a camera off some sort, maybe fiber optics or other to see the oil p/u screen through the oil drain hole w/o having to drop the pan? Thanks!
  20. Any idea why I would see a small amount of oil dripping from this part of the car?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi there I've recently purchased a 2009 B6 Passat variant, it has the CBBB 2.0TDI engine. I took the undershield away recently to drain the oil and I noticed a few drips from this part I suspect it has dripped onto this part from above but as this is my first vw tdi car I was wondering if...
