  1. 2006 Passat dash Service info coming on at engine startup?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    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:
  2. Fuel pressure not high enough to start-up the car

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  3. Knock at startup & P0340 & P0011 codes

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  4. gurgling noise on startup

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...

  7. Slight ticking noise at cold startup

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  8. Coolant loss but no puddles. Looks like "steam" from exhaust on startup.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    '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...
  9. What is this noise? Only heard on start-up.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    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...
  10. V6 P0118 only on startup

    B5 Garage
    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.
  11. Whining on startup

    B5 Garage
    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...
  12. 2002 GLX ATQ Engine Start-up and Tail/Brake Light

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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
  13. Car sputtering, theb dies on startup - O2 sensor just change??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  14. Oil pressure too high at startup on 1999 V6

    B5 Garage
    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...
  15. Random startup problems

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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?
  16. Mechanical Screech on Cold Startup

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  17. P0302 at startup then no problems (Passat 2004 GLX V6 2.8L)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
  18. Screeching sound at startup

    B5 Garage
    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...
  19. Temp guage reads low constantly - heater is working - runs rough at startup

    B5 Garage
    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.
  20. change in start-up for my 2000 passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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...
