  3. steering wheel shake during hard acceleration

    New Member Introductions
    I am guessing it may be tires but am not sure, of course the boy picks a car out with 19 inch rims, and when we test drove it, did not seem to have a shake when under hard acceleration, but I can not be sure, the salesman, said he had the wheels rotated and oil changed when we picked up the...
  4. Front End Brake Shake

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, My '03 2.8 4Motion had a vibration that seemed to be obvious as Discs out of parallel. I replaced them with EBC rotors and pads and it went away. Now after less than 5,000 miles it is back and getting worse. Calipers looked good and were sliding freely. Before I take it apart again, I'd...

  7. Shake while acceleration

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After I lowered the car it all happened, I have brand new tires on the car with a 3 day old alignment. After doing some research on here I'm going to assume its the axles I bought from autozone. Never shook while I was at stock ride height and now that I'm on coils it shakes. I'm actually...

  9. Little shake when starting cold?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Maybe I'm paranoid, but I seem to notice every tiny little change in my car's behavior. Lately, with the cold weather here in Canada (-6 to -4 celcius) I've noticed that when I start cold (over night or over work day) it does a little cough, like it's running at really low rpm about to stall...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, Got a 2001 passat 1.8 wagon. There seems to be a noticeable shake in the rear end when I brake at faster than 60km/h. Who are the culprits? Rear disk warp? Rear alignment? Rear suspension? Sent from my iPhone using AG Free

  20. Intermittent driveline shake?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a GLX 4motion wagon which has developed an unusual symptom - I have an intermittent driveline shake. It does not seem to be speed independent and my thoughts from a little research is driveshaft bearings, any thoughts or feedback? BTW - tires have been rebalanced
