    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  2. AEB Cylinder 3, No Spark

    B5 Garage
    The '99 1.8T has a misfire (no spark condition) on cylinder 3 - third one back from the timing belt cover. The #3 coil pack is good as the misfire doesn't move when this CP is tested on other cylinders. Guess I'll check the wiring to CP #3 before swapping the Ignition Control Unit. Though...
  3. Most effective methods to remove oil from spark plug wells

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Folks, As many of yous know, it is common to find oil in the spark plug wells with these cars. The reasons why I am concerned: Enough oil can hydrolock the engine. Small amounts can put the final nail in your older catalytic converter's coffin (not ideal for new cats either). Foul up your...
  4. 2003 B5 ate a spark plug - rolling value?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, the title says it all. #5 cylinder was hungry and ingested some or all of the spark plug. Needless to say, the engine runs like cr*p. Borescope shows a pretty beat up piston head. No idea what other damage may exist. Any ideas on value as a donor body?
  5. Oil in Spark Plug Wells - - Replace PCV System?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Howdy, long time lurker, first time poster... 2002 Passat 1.8T, bought at 96K, now has 136K, and still runs strong. Sooooooo, I had some idling issues last week, chugging, and missing, dieing at stoplights. Replaced the PCV Valve from O'reilly. The old one was pretty dirty, but not sure if...
  6. 2003 VW Passat 1.8T Wet plugs, no spark

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2003 VW Passat 1.8T with 242,000 miles on it and for the last 2 weeks, I have not been able to get it to start. We replaced 2 of the 4 coil packs about 4 months ago, so we don't think all 4 coil packs have gone bad in that time. When the car was running, it was running rough, and the...
  7. Passat B5 2000 Cranks but won't start + no spark

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone, Having some issues with my Passat (2000 V5 2.3L) this issue happened few months ago, where one morning the car just would not start. It cracked just fine but had no intention to start, removing a cable and grounding a spark plug showed that no spark was being made. Then two days...
  8. Spark plug wire protector, loom, conduit

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I assume most of you cover your wires for extra longevity, protection? I replaced my OEM crumbling stuff years ago, and that replacement is now crumbling. No idea where i got it. I know this seems like a no-brainer, but I can't seem to find 1/4" spark plug wire split loom that is cheap and...

    B5 Garage
    Hello all, I've got a 2003 Passat Wagon with the 1.8T. I just reinstalled the head (head gasket job), after the car sat for probably 9 months. I gave it a few tries and got fire, and everything sounded good, but there was a small fuel leak, so I shut it off to fix. Now, a significant amount of...

  16. 1.8t GenIII Spark Plug replacement

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    My 14 1.8t has 66k on the clock. I purchased spark plugs last year, but couldn't get the coils off. Fast forward to last weekend, I tried removing the coils using the ECS / Schwaben coil puller and pulled the head of the coil off the rubber sleeve. Luckily, the coil plugged back into the top...
