    I have a Service in 5400 miles or 15 days info that comes on during car start? What would I have to do to clear it or what do you think it is referencing to? Mileage is currently at 116,496 miles. I'm not within the oil change schedule. TIA Mac Fairfield, CA :wrench:

    Hello everyone! I have a 2002 vw passat 1.8t For some reason, the pressure in the fuel rail doesn't stay high enough to re-start the car back up within a reasonable crank-time. I know 100% its a fuel pressure problem. Things I replaced: CTS, spark plugs, fuel filter, and cleaned my fuel...

    We've owned a 2003 Passat 1.8 AWM for going on 3 years now. Shortly after purchase the CCT exploded allowing the cam chain to eat a few slits in the valve cover. With much sweat, swearing and assistance from this forum I replaced the CCT, dropped the oil pan, cleaned it all out, replaced the oil...

    Hello all. Any suggestions? Worry? Ignore? Replace/repair something? Fuel pump? Vapor recovery system? Car: 1996 A4 Quarttro, 12-valve AFC engine, 108K miles -- This car does not have the 2001 Passat's air pump which checks for fuel system leaks, including loose gas caps, and generates those...

    Hey everyone! I am new to Passat World, in fact this is my first post!:) I was wondering if anyone is experiencing the same problem as me. Every time I get in the car and start it up in the morning there is a strange noise like a chattering almost like its struggling to start up even though it...

    04 V6 w- 167,240 on the mileage On startup after my car's been sitting overnight or after 8-10 hrs (work shift) I can hear a slight ticking from the motor. Not every time though. Some times it's more noticeable then others. I hear it more when I'm parked between 2 cars or a wall on one side...

    '05 1.8 coding intermittent misfire on 2 and 3, losing coolant slowly with definite "steamy" exhaust on startup and first couple hundred feet of drive. Starts rough but smooths out quickly and all other operation is fine. Studied the threads and can't find any clues under coolant or head...

    Hi folks, If you have a second, please check out this clip: https://youtu.be/qv4Gg0-nSWE This noise occurs as soon as the ignition is turned on, and last for several seconds. Sometimes it repeats immediately for a second time. Then that's it during the drive. However, I occasionally hear...

    I started getting P0118 a couple months ago. I changed the temp sensor, my second in 6 months but it still comes back periodically. It only sets on startup, I've never seen it come on with the car running. What else should I look at? V6, 2003 4 Motion.

    Everytime on startup, there's a constant whining from my Passat. Coming from the right side. Tends to go away after running for a while. If I turn it off for more than a half hour, and turn it back on its usually there. Any ideas? I'm hoping it's not another major problem with this damn thing...

    I recorded a video to check my brakes because only the top two lights were working. They were blackened, so I went ahead and replaced all four bulbs. I also did a quick Start-up in the process. Does the Start-up sound right to you guys? LOL

    Passat V6, 1999 I've been getting a P0160 code (bank 2 sensor 2) for the last 2 years. Finally got around to getting the replacement sensor - Bosch 13552. Not having the tools to do it, I had the local community college auto department change the sensor. Figured something as simple as this...

    I recently did an oil change on my 1999 V6 and now the oil pressure pegs the needle well past 150 PSI during startup. Once the car warms up the pressure returns to normal. I switched from Mobil 1 0W-40 to Ravenol 5W-40 from Blauparts. I understand the pressure should not exceed just over 100...

    Hello I got a 1.8t and sometimes when I start it up, after I have driven a while it has problems starting, it cranks quite a long time and after that it starts but the EPC light is on, if I then shut it down and try again it starts normally, what could be the problem?

    2001 ATQ V6, 88K miles This morning on cold start (well, the car was cold...the weather's pretty warm), a mechanical screech, at maybe 1000Hz, appeared. The pitch and volume were steady, and did not change with changes in the engine's rpm. The car started and ran fine. In the middle of the next...

    Hello, I took few days off for the holidays and I've been driving my wife's car. Today when I took mine for a small Xmas errand it had a rough start, rough idling. It's not overly cold 36F outside, must be 40F in my garage. I during the rough idling the engine light intermittently turned on...

    Hello All, I have an '04 GLS and am the original owner. This is something new. When I go to start the car, I get a brief metallic screeching sound. Weather has been sub 40, but this is the first time I've heard this noise. The car is also taking a while to start. I may have to turn the key...

    2000 1.8t has a temp guage that reads cold even after running for an extended time. The heater is working. I replaced the temp control switch about a year ago. Is this a bad swith or do I need a thermostat? The engine runs rough at startup then seems fine after a couple minutes.

    I recently replaced the cam chain tensioner on my ATW equipped Passat. now the car does not always start on the first crank of the starter. at first I thought that the cam position sensor (removed to get the intake cam out) was the culprit. it is original and has never been removed to my...
