  1. Need help finding part number for wire connector that connects to oil pressure sender

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I went to the VW dealership last week and they couldn't figure out which part it was. The connector that snaps onto the oil pressure sender is the part I need. I assuem this connector comes with the wire too. Can someone help identify this part so I can get a new one ordered? The car is a 1.8T...
  2. Location of temp sender.

    B5 Garage
    The one for the temp gauge on a '03 2.8 V6. The gauge was erratic , then stopped moving all together. Operating temp remains normal. Also the correct part name, since I asked for a temp sensor, and this one is located lower rad hose area. Didn't fix guage.
  3. VDO sender for new south gauge ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I got a few gauges used of the vortex. The pressure gauge is a new south electric and has a single orange sender wire. New south sells senders with plastic connectors for multiple wires but that'a not what I need. I've read about two post senders by vdo. Will that work as long as I get the...

  6. '04 Passat 4Motion fuel gauge sender connector pictures?

    New Member Introductions
    Can anyone send a picture of how the fuel gauge sender connectors are attached to the fuel pump lid? There appear to be 2 connectors. One for the fuel gauge sender and one for something else. The connectors are different colors but I forgot to note how they were configured when I was replacing...
  7. Another Oil TEMP Sender Question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I pulled the trigger on a 42DD relocation kit and some podi gauges (oil temp/pressure). I recently read that installing an oil temp sender to the 42DD relocation kit will give a bad reading, and should instead be installed directly in a oil flow path. Can anyone confirm this? If so, where's...

  9. Fuel Sender Location(s)? B5.5 V6 4motion

    B5 Garage
    I've got an '02 Passat Sedan V6 with 4motion... I've been told it has 3 fuel level senders since it has that funky fuel tank straddling the driveshaft. Fuel gauge isn't working properly and the first thing I want to do is check resistance on each of the fuel level senders, but I'm not sure...
  10. Question - oil pressure sender

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    For those of you with v6 engines that have installed oil pressure gauges, where did you install the sender? In my old cars there were places on the head and also on the oil filter flange that I could use. On my current ATQ I'm not so sure.

    Hi guys. I need some input here, i am so tired of this F***** oil temp sender, I just mounted 3 gauges, oil temp, pressure and boost gauge using a 42 dd relocation kit. But it seems like i am unable to get any readings on my oil temp gauge, and I think it is because it is not getting high...
  13. How Do I Replace Oil Pressure Sender?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My flashing oil light came on after 10 minutes test driving my car after I replaced the turbo. It's a 99 AEB. I called an Indy shop and they said $158 to do an oil pressure test. The dealer said $95 which surprised me. I don't really have the money to get it checked, so I'm going to replace...
  14. Oil Sender possible cause of startup cam tensioner noise?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My sister wants to sell her 2001 1.8t as soon as possible. Of course, she wants to spend very little on fixing stuff before selling it. She has the tensioner noise at first start up that goes away pretty quickly. She doesn't want to drop the pan/clean the pickup screen or try and replace the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a dilemma: I've replaced the fuel pump and was about to wire up the fuel-sender (large white cap) when I noticed that there are two lots of identical terminals on the underside. I thought I was being really anally-retentive by taking photos of EVAH-REEE-THANG before / during / after...
  19. Help removing stock oil pressure sender on AWM 2001.5

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I can't get to the blank port, as it is on top of the oil cooler and I can't get any sockets in there. I have the 42D relocation kit. I can disconnect the sender wire, but can't figure out how to unscrew it out of there to screw the 42D kit in. Anyone done this before?
