    I noticed there are few drops of coolant on the garage floor. The position is corresponding to the coolant drain plug. Does the drain plug have an o-ring? I tightened the drain plug but no luck. Anyone has experienced the same issue and what would be the fix? Thanks.

    Recently bought an 04' 4 motion with 79,000 original miles. It took a light hit to the front resulting in the front clip being wiped out. Most of the damage is superficial and easy to repair. Anyway, the car came to me already apart, and i have since reassembled everything except sheet metal...

    It's been a while my 1.8 2002 lacks power and shifts gears slowly. I have changed the MAF to a Bosch sensor, cleaned the KN air filter, cleaned and aligned the TB, changed the O2 sensor, have changed the ATF (MaxLife). Have used several bottles of Techron already to clean the injectors. I'm...

    Hey everybody, My 2005 GLS wagon recently started having trouble starting after I fill up the gas tank. When I try to start it right after filling up, it will turn over but not start. I usually have to wait around 5 minutes before it will start, but then I won't have any other problems until...

    I've got an 02 Passat GLX 4Mo Wagon. It has the Monsoon stereo (single DIN size), cassette player, with 6-disc changer in the boot. For about 8 months, the entire panel would flash for a few minutes before finally turning on and working as normal. By entire panel, I mean the LCD and the button...

    Well some of you I'm sure has helped me with my form for the rattle in my car. Well now I'm having another problem. The problem is everytime I start my car it will misfire for about 10 to 15 seconds and then it will stop but when I try to accelerate it will sputter real bad and has little to no...

    my 2000 passat B5 takes 20 to 30 min to warm up under load and doesn't warm up when idling (tried turning on the car in the morning and the engine showed still cold after 30min). Would anyone know how long should a 2.8 v6 take to warm up to a normal temp, or is it normal for it to take a long...

    Okay, I have had the car for almost two weeks. 1.8T 2003 B5.5. No CEL on, Car starts right up with the key turned, smooth idle and looking at the RPM gauge it's very steady at idle. Seems in the mornings when the car is cool it accelerated smooth and good power, but after the engine warms up...

    how can i explain this... it seems that my engine (2003 B 5.5 1.8T sedan) is a little slow reving down after shifting at a higher RPM. I have to wait for what seems to be 2-3 seconds for the engine to rev down far enough to release the clutch for the next gear. This is my first gas turbo I Have...

    My younger son's 2000 S4 is a great car, except that it takes a long time to fill the gas tank, because the gas pump automatically shuts off unless one pumps gas either in bursts or in an extremely slow steady stream. We have cleaned and inspected the charcoal canister and been told the problem...

    Uncle Sam knows all about this issue: Here is a cut-and-paste of a page that I found on the "Safe Car. gov" site: SUMMARY: VOLKSWAGEN: WHEN MEMORY USAGE IS HIGH, NAVIGATION UNIT IS SLOW TO RESPOND, AND MULTIPLE FEATURES ARE BEING USED OR BOOT UP TIME AFTER VEHICLE HAS STARTED UP AND SYMPTOMS...

    I'm not sure if there is something wrong, or if it's just me. My 99 Passat w/ the 1.8t and the auto trans, seems a bit sluggish off the "line". I'm not racing it, but I went to jump on the throttle at a light the other day, and the car seemed to have fall flat. After a second or so, it did pick...

    Hello all, This is my first post on this site. I will move my question to the correct forum when I can post there. ;) I just purchased a 2005 1.8t Passat for my daughter, 113K on the clock. The problem with the Passat is that when engine is dead cold (sits overnight), only cylinder #2...

    like the title says - it seems like the mid-range acceleration in my B6 is a bit off. I should be at the lower end of boost, but should easily be able to get into that area - but the acceleration seems a bit slower than normal. suggestions on what to check?
  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Every once in a while when I press the accelerator very lightly from a stop, the car will move forward but won't shift into 2nd right away as the RPMs rise. It stays in 1st and feels and sounds like a 4x4 driving in low range. I can feel the engine powering along, but no acceleration. If I...

    Hello All, I changed my Thermostat around a year ago when doing a TB job. Lately I've been noticing the needle is very slow to rise when starting the car, sometimes taking a good 3-5 minutes for it to even move from the bottom, then it just rockets up to the middle. I have a feeling the...

    Hello, So I had posted this before I am revisiting this topic. So Last time I had this problem I had replaced my brake booster, master cylinder, replaced all four brake calipers and ABS sensor on passenger tire. I have also rerouted the vacuum hoses so that now a single vacuum hose goes directly...

    I have been pretty unhappy overall about the lack of response while in Manual Moderusing tiptronic. Especially when downshifting, lets say from 6th gear to 4th, it seems to take forever, before the gear engages. Is there something wrong with gearbox or the transmission? In addition the...
