    My recently-acquired (last Feb.) '05 4Motion Wagon with AWM engine and Tiptronic (B5 #5 for me) recently began suffering from symptoms I've seen described here quite a few times: the starter would intermittently fail to energize. The solenoid would click, but it would not move far enough to...

    I have had a problem with my 1999 Passat 1.8 Turbo missing while driving or from a dead stop. I have had it to 2 mechanics and the car was throwing a cat and turbo boost control valve error. Replaced the valve, a PCV valve, ignition control module, and spark plugs. $500 later I found the...

    Hello all, just thought I'd share my success story of fixing a vibration while stopped in drive. These are the original trans and snub mounts: 2002 B5.5 auto with 128k miles... the snub flaked apart when touched and the trans mounts had no connection. Easy jobs, except for working around...

    Probably due to the pressure in the PCV system this P0010 error came on. My smog was due so I replaced the PCV, the PRV, and the suction jet pump. I checked the resistance of the solenoid of the cam chain tensioner and it was below the required OHMS of resistance. Luckily, I still had the...

    I have an O1E 6 speed in my Passat, the same transmission used in the Audi S4. It has had two problems. This is how it has happened: I pushed in the clutch and put in it first gear with the engine off, then when I started the engine it moved ever so slightly pulling as if it were in gear...

    I went under my car today (2003 1.8T AWM auto triptronic) to inspect the transmission range switch (I have code P0706 -- that thread is here) and found dripping around the transmission pan but I don't think it's transmission fluid. It has a slightly sweet smell and I believe it's coolant leaking...

    So here is one of the two (front) step light housings. Look at how the metal has melted and broken its electrical connection. B o t h Fronts! Will be changing to LED for lower temps and hope that a sodder may fix the connection. Don't wanna buy new/used ones if can avoid it. So, all...

    :lol::lol: I removed black part (it is on ign coil) and plugged holes. Engine ran good!!! I installed it back and engine shakes again. Is that PCV valve? Who replaced it? I guess, I'll go to junk yard to get it 04 1.8T

    Hi Guys, I just wanted to post my adventure in the hope it may help another member. Friday I R and R my alternator on my 02 Passat v6. Drove up to Cleveland on Saturday no problems. Went to the car on Sunday and the starter would not work. Thought one of the usual suspects such as ignition...

    Finally I think I can put this post to bed . After several weeks of chasing this headache this annoying problem is finally over. I originally posted of having no DRL & turn signal on the "right" side . Flashers were ok all around, high beam & fogs all ok. After reading many posts here, the...

    I've been trying to track down this code for a while, and suspected a bad EVAP pump (LDP) because I could never get it to run. After understanding how the pump works, by using engine vacuum to cock a spring, which then forces a diaphragm down to pump air into the tank, etc, I realized that the...

    Hey guys, so the sega keeps on going. So the overheating was solved, but now I have this new noise. I'm thinking it might be the chain tensioner. Its in the back of the motor and its a loud ticking noise. Timing is dead on after replacing the pump. just need some clarification before ordering...

    My 1999-v6 was driving me crazy with an annoying stumble caused when gently accelerating from 1100rpm but would clear itself up, and not be present on a hard-acceleration. I bought this car 2 months ago and since then, I've replaced the TB, computer, battery, fuel filters, wires and plugs in...
