    OK folks, I had my independent guy work and replace a fuel pump. Afterwards another issue arose. I have rough starts, sometimes ending in stall, that typically go away after a mile or so of driving. This is especially sensitive when the humidity is high. They shop looked into it and after...
  2. Anything Auto
    By way of introduction, I used to be active on PW for a good few years while I had a b5 and a 5.5. I didn't have a lot to contribute but loved being around people who knew and loved their cars. Honestly seemed like one of the best car boards around for a lot of reasons! Also it seems there are...

    Hey guys, So some of you might know about my loose camshaft pulley issue (http://www.passatworld.com/forums/42-volkswagen-passat-b5-discussion/356101-loose-crankshaft-pulley.html). I went out to my car this morning to finally check up on it and find what really was going on. I just replaced...

    I have a 2003 Passat, seems like if there was something that could go wrong with a car, it happened to me. Last go around with the dealer was a friggin nightmare. I need to read up I suppose and learn about this car so I can fix it. When it is trouble free it is a great vehicle, but that is...
  5. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hey fellas... 2007 passat here... (2.0T) My wife took it to the stealership because it had a check engine light on the dash... Two codes were pulled. One was P2187 (System Too Lean at idle) and P2279 (Intake Air System Leak) Per inspection they said Crankcase Breather Valve and Turbo inlet...

    Apparently I need a new coolant reservoir , a front right speed sensor, a transmission valve body harness and a thermostat with a temp sensor all total of 1800, so what should I try to do myself and what should I leave to them
  7. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I had to get a couple of things at the stealership at lunch today and popped into the showroom to view the B7. Didn't have time to drive one, but sat in a well appointed gasser on the showroom floor. It's big... noticibly wider than the B6. Inside, the interior looks pretty good, actually...
  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I went to the dealer to go get a check valve that I managed to break while I was changing out the coolant flange (what fun that was!). My question is, do I have to use the $51.90 (:puke:) check valve I got at the stealership or can I buy this one? Help/Universal one-way vacuum check valve...
  9. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    No, not for anything big... but I've been suffering for some time with stupidly squeaking B pillars and creaking rear door cards. Normally I'd take care of this myself, but two things... B-pillar air bags make me nervous and the main reason.... CPO warranty FTMFW! :thumbup: I've got an...

    Just left my local dealership aka Stealership to get some prices, I need a PCV breather tube replacement since its broken in half and being held together by 100mph tape Its the corrugated hard platic tube that runs from the valve cover to the back of the manifold, you know what im talking...
  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    hey folks, My car is 1998 passat 1.8t and just clocked 160k km it veers to the right slightly when i let go of the steering wheel, so i thought i'd bring it to the dealership get it aligned properly. i dropped my car at the shop and they brought the car in for the alignment job. when I came...
  12. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I went in for an alignment and they say they can't because my tires are bad and my pump should be smooth as butter. That aside, I'm new to 4mo it seems that there will be a little resistance being awd? The steering seems pretty good to me but I don't have another to compare too. Also they...
  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Dealer recently "fixed" car not starting often. There is also me asking them not to do anything but an alignment and coming back to find this "done," but that's a long story. Anyway, $400 and some random crap later, car is not starting again - nothing changed. Any suggestions on how to insist...
  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I had to take my '03 GLX in for the heat shield recall (I know I know..I was lazy), and since I was there I told them that my rear passenger's side window would go up but not down. I am a longtime reader of this forum so I know about the little problem with the plastic tabs. Yeah the ones...
  15. Dealerships and Service
    Car salesman get a bad rap and deservedly so, but how about their cousins -the service reps. Where do they stand in your experiences at the stealership. Bring my car in for a recall to Colonial VW in Westboro, MA. SR calls me back to inform me that both of my outer CV boots are torn and they...
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    In VW Driver Gear, the Chrome Mirror Housings(turn signal ones) list for about $208! So my question immediately is, who makes them, and are there any differences those and the ones sold by Inpro, Dubstop, etc....? Why is there such a big price difference?
  17. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I can't prove it, but it seems that everytime I get my oil changed, the stealership gets me on some extra stuff. There's a nail in your tire, your passenger side side marker light is out, you're low on washer fluid, your left rear brake light and turn signal light aren't working. They tell me...
  18. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Went to buy a GTI, but fell in love with the passat - ended up getting a decent deal. Stupid me, I couldn't tell leatherette from leather. Think the car is a 2.0FSI, but the guy at the dealership had put on 18" Samarkands on. The salesperson told me that it was leather, but surprisingly did not...
  19. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was standing at the parts counter today at my local VW stealership picking up a new dipstick and the parts guy answers the phone. I overhear him quoting a price to another mechanic shop for an unknown part. "It's $312 retail, but your cost is $212." I'm assuming that they are probably...
