    Hi all, My B5 pasat 2001, 1.9TDI AVF engine is going into overboost, sometimes it enters limp mode, sometimes not. But looking at the logs, overboost is there for sure. I have checked all vacuum hoses, no leaks. Swapped over EGR control valve and boost control valve, cleaned MAP sensor, checked...

    Greetings all, looking for some direction on my dad's 2005 Passat. It has an intermittent rough idle on cold starts. He says you can turn it off and restart it and its fine. He had it in for some service at a VW dealer a few months ago and they read the codes P0300 P0301 P0302 P0303 P0304 and...

    My sons 2000 1.8T twice in the last three weeks would not start. I pulled the plugs (all four) and they were wet and smelled like fuel, each time i cleaned them, dried them and the car would start up fine and run fine. I put new plugs in back in spring last year but went with the cheaper...

    I drive a 2000, manual passat ATW. I've been having a very strange problem. Once in a while (maybe once a month) I'll start the car, it'll start, but when I put it in gear it will immediately stall. Often times it can't maintain an idle, so I have to keep my foot on the accelerator. If I manage...

    My 2002 1.8T has been getting a recurring P0420 CEL a couple times per month. Car hasn't been running rough, no misfires, no other codes. Either I will clear it with the Vag-Com, or it will go away by itself. Either way, it keeps coming back. The car seems to have the normal amount of power...

    Hi. I've searched around for this topic and the consensus is to first check PS fluid level (mine is fine), then check tie rods. I took a peek at them (top of wheel, correct?) but don't know how to tell if they are bad or not. What should I be looking for, and should I upload pics? Someone...

    I'm in the UK and own a 08 2.0 this highline passat. Up to now been very reliable so far however I do run the car doing short deliveries three nights a week and starting to get a little worried. The car starts most of the time straight away but now and then I put the fob in and as usual hear...

    I had been getting the three beeps a long with the solid ABS light and a flashing Brake light. I got another module from the junkyard and swapped them. In doing so the three beeps, ABS light and brake light have not turned on, but now I have a constant ASR light. Did I receive a module that...

    Started up the car the other day and it sounded like a diesel. Drove it around the block and it went back to normal for a day. Went to run some errands yesterday and it started doing it again, only not as bad. Seems to be running fine outside of that. No CEL or loss of power. I changed the...

    There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for it. Sometimes when I try to start it up it will crank then stop, just about the time it would normally fire even while the key is still at the crank position. Even as I continue to hold it the car will try again to start but do the same thing. After...

    So sometimes my 05 passat does not start. It turns on for about a second or so, and then it just shuts off. After that it turns on perfectly. This kind of happens randomly, it does not do that everytime i start up my car. Could it be a clogged fuel filter? How much does it cost to replace that...

    Heya Everyone. I have a 2001 B5.5 GLX 2.8L 4Mo-Tip and I am having some A/C issues. Sometimes the A/C Blows very nice and cold but then all of a sudden will get super hot. I have a brand new filter because my old one was from 2003! I noticed that when it blows cold the Electric Fan is on...
