  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Has anyone had smoke and a burning smell coming from the power window assembly in any of the doors? I can't get to it for two days, but I'll do the obvious -- pull the door panel and run a VCDS scan on the module that controls the windows. I just wanted to see if anyone has had a similar...

    Hi, my pain in the butt passat is not doing very well. I put a new salvage motor in it after the kids stuck old sludgy oil into the old one. The "new motor was blowing smoke and dripping oil out the turbo exhaust side. So I put a turbo on it from my old engine since it was new I thought maybe...

    2006 Passat 2.0T. Bone stock. 36k on the odometer. Auto trans FWD only. At issue: it's now smoking bad. It doesn't have the sweet smell of antifreeze, the color actually is more of a light gray and I can even see some puffs of blue. Back story: We bought it from a private seller. (The car sat...

Now, I get white smoke out of the exhaust when the car warms up a little (60*C of coolant). Doesn't do it when the...

    2003 2.6 ATQ Have discovered wispy, acrid smoke emanating from the right side of the engine. Seems to be coming from deep within. Located under the coolant tank. There is a little heat shield under there and the smoke comes from the engine side of the shield. It's getting into the air intake...

    2002 1.8t wagon I've been fruitlessly trying to pin down a leak that is throwing a P0171 code. So far I have found and fixed 2 leaks with a boost leak test, but now I'm coming up short. I've seen DIY smoke machines using an air compressor with a paint can with burning material inside to provide...

    Okay I am getting some smoke from the passenger side of my engine compartment. No not a fire or something bad, but kind of like when you spill a bit of oil when adding and miss the hole a bit. I looked top and bottom no wet spots, or obvious leaks. My oil level has not dropped at all since I...

    So recently I popped my hood after noticing a smell from there and saw white smoke coming from behind the engine, like the firewall area, I can't really pinpoint the smell.
