    Hello all, My first automobile was a 1980 VW Scirocco with a 5 speed manual transmission. I currently own a 1998 Passat with a 1.8L Turbo and a manual transmission which I plan to restore with a rolling chassis of a 1998 Passat V6. Matt

    I just finished changing the ATF on my A4, with 241,000 miles. Here is a picture of the pan prior to cleaning; almost no residue, and very little sludge on the magnets. This trans has been filled with Valvoline Maxlife for the past 75,000 miles. I have no motive to promote Maxlife, don't own...

    I registered on this account in Feb 2012 when I was looking to buy a 2000 Passat GLS off of a co worker, a few weeks later I purchased it and almost instantly regretted it. I didn't realize so many things were wrong with the car both mechanically and cosmetically so I sold it less than a month...

    I've done much searching but no real answers to my question. I have an ATW 1.8t with 190k and have been using LiquiMoly Synthoil Premium 5w40 for quite a while. Always really happy with the oil until about 3500-4k miles when it starts to burn it off. I'm a big fan of LiquiMoly and can get it...

    Anyone here still an original (first) owner of a B5 since new? Just curious. I am...99 V6 GLX with 102k miles. I still love driving the car to this day. Sure, I have some expensive repairs every now and then. But, I think the B5 Passat is the best Passat ever - just right in size, excellent...

    I have a 2002 Passat 4 cylinder. Original owner, garage kept, ALL scheduled maintenance done, even had the timing belt and all the 100K stuff done at 90K. It hit 100K and it has been one thing after another. I had to have all of the motor mounts replaced because the rubber was going bad and made...

    Basically I had great heat. It was glorious. Could burn my face off type of heat. Then as preventative maintenance I go and change the CTS, and lose most of my heat instantly. Last winter the heat was okay, pretty shitty but did the job. I could hear liquid in the dash so i tried to purge the...
