    Hey all, My 2008 2.0T with FSI, 90K miles, is lately a little later than usual to upshift, particularly from 1 to 2 and sometimes 2 to 3. Is this a possible sign that the transmission fluid level is low or the fluid and filter need changing? I have not had transmission service on this car...

    1999 Passat 1.8T MT/FWD Honest, I did search for this. People just never use the same terms twice, so it's hard to find anything relevant. Idles normal. Accelerates normal. , Put in clutch and take your foot off the throttle and the revs fall really, really slowly.On the order of 2 seconds...

    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...

    Hey all. '05 B5.5, 1.8T, front-wheel drive. Something odd is happening to my car. It has trouble starting up, the ECU light and ASR light are always on now, along with the CEL. Now it'll start up and run, but behave very sluggishly. Sometimes the idle is really rough and it sort of hovers at...

    Car is a 1.8t Passat Automatic/Tiptronic GLS. When you hit the gas it revs up but it feels like no power is there. Almost like the park brake is on. It will continue like this and have trouble shifting to the next gear. Any ideas on where to start? I can get a video of this if it would...

    Hi folks, I'm new here, and am a proud new owner of a used 2004 passat gls. I test drove it and was impressed by how quiet and zippy the car was so I bought it. Unfortunately, on literally my first drive in it as the owner, I gave it some gas to merge out into traffic, and the engine died...

    so i recently purchased a 2003 passat 1.8L turbo. I bought it knowing that the catalytic converter needed to be changed. The dealership told me that they know about it and the check engine light is ON because of the CAT code. They also told me that the turbo is not working properly because of...

    I have a 2001.5 GLX. No CEL whatsoever, no stored codes, been keeping an eye with Vagcom. Problem is sometimes when taking off from a stop the accelerator response is horrible. What I mean is one time you take off, give it 1/8" pedal and off you go. Other times you hit that 1/8" and the car...
