    B5 Garage
    I bought this car (second 2003 GLX 2.8 [typo in title and can’t change] wagon) last year with 90k miles. It’s run well, but has been using oil.

  8. Trouble starting car

    New Member Introductions
    I have a 2002 passat GLS 1.8 that takes 2 or 3 cranks in the morning or when sitting for 6+ hours to start. It'll sputter for 3 seconds before idling. Runs normal and starts normal the rest of the time as long as it doesn't sit for longer than 6 hours. It seems to be fuel related but what do I...

    Hi everyone, Having some issues with my Passat (2000 V5 2.3L) as it does not really want to start when hot. No problem starting when cold but once the car warms up it can take up to 4 attempts to start it. Recently I have replaced the crankshaft sensor so that can be ruled out. VCDS does not...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Starting trouble; CCT or FPR? A week ago, I started getting a CEL with code 16396/P0012, Advance Setpoint Not Reached. This weekend, so far it only seems to be when the engine's warm, but I'm having trouble starting. It's acting like there's not enough fuel, but once the engine finally does...
