    I've just about had it with this car. My car was sitting in a tow yard for 6 days and they didn't start it up at all so it was dead when I went to go get it out. He jump started it but it wont stay on unless you keep your foot on the gas. I just put $700 in it last month for a new battery...

    So here is my issue that I need some desperate help with. This weekend I pulled my Passat in the garage to clean it, when I was done I got in to pull it out and it wouldn't start. Well I replaced the battery because it needed and tried again. This time it would start up and then as soon as...

  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

So I was was rolling up to a light on the way home last night (1999 1.8t 5-speed) and all of a sudden I heard a horrible grinding sound coming from the engine. It's hard to...

    So my poor passat is having a little problem... My car has been shutting off randomly without warning. When this happens, my gauges turn off, both the mileage and the clock go off with the car too. Usually... cause my car is manual, the car starts itself back up within 2 seconds because its in...

    Car: '03 GLS variant with manual HVAC controls, 45,000 miles. Maybe I just never noticed it before. It was a bit chilly this morning and put a tad of heat on with the fan. When it warmed up, I shut the ventilation fan off and noticed a "click" from the lower left dash area. I tried it...

    We've been having problems with our 00 V6 Passat for a number of months and the problem seems to be getting worse. Whenever we need to refuel our car the pump clicks off before the tank is full. At best we can usually get 1/2 tank of gas into the car before it shuts off and then we painfully...

    I thought my old Kenwood amp was fried, so I picked up a new Sony xm-2165GTX. It is a two-channel amp that I have bridged. It is supposed to put out 400 watts at 4 ohms. It is not 2 ohm stable. I have a JL box with two 8 ohm 8w1 wired in parallel. It is my understanding that this setup...
