    Hello all, I have a 02 passat b5.5 1.8T ABT spec. It has an AWT engine and has clocked 121k kms. The car has been running smoothly since I bought her at 98k kms. Here is my issue: A few weeks back the car just started misfiring and running extremely rich (I hadn't used it for about 2 weeks...

    Hello all, I have a passat b5.5 1.8T '02 model ABT spec. It has 121k kms on the clock and she has been running fine since I bought her at 98k. The problem I am having currently is that at idle it is misfiring. Consumption has also gone up; normally at idle the dash shows 0.8 l/h but now it...

    Hi Everyone: I recently had my car's tires rotated (tires are pretty new) at Goodyear tires and after that my car started pulling severely to the right while driving. I went back there to have it checked out and they said that I should get an alignment, so I did. My car still pulls to the right...

    2003 GLS Sedan, V6 ATQ, 5-speed manual - I replaced my power steering pump yesterday. The bearings in the pump for the pulley had been failing for a while (clicking sound and a slight rattle) and, ironically, the new pump was already on its way when failure occurred. I installed a...

    I made a mistake yesterday and bought 4 225-55-17 tires to replace the ones I have on my B5. I do realize I should have bought 225-45 instead but I screwed it up. Should I still try to mount them and try them on the car or is it a waste of time or even dangerous? My car currently has 3...

    Hi all. So I put a new fuel pump in, and still it's not starting. Forgive my ignorance, but I tested the volts reaching the pump and they seem a touch low, 10.6, and I figured all the cranking had run the battery down so I attempted to jump start it and still nothing. 2 things: is it possible...

    Yesterday I replaced the secondary air injection pump with a new (used) one. I worked too -- I could hear it running when I started the car. Yet this morning when I started the car up to go get it smogged, I got the EMISSIONS WORKSHOP warning again, and when I pulled the code with my VAG-COM...

    Interior shot of my '98 GLS I just finished putting the interior back in the car from almost a years worth of having no interior and just one seat because water ingress issues. This weekend I was finally able to wrap everything up and get my car back to standard comfort levels. My wife was...

    Well I was hoping to get replies to the my other post but guess I will wait

    What gives? I've got one small question and I've posted at least twice in the noob forum and I still can't post to the B5 forum... Do I have to wait? What other hoops do I need to jump through here?

    So, this makes my fifth post, two of which are new threads in this section, and I still can't post elsewhere. I've activated the email link and made multiple posts to the noob section. Very discouraging to say the least. I'll refrain from commenting further about my thoughts on this requirement...

    Hi all. I'm looking for advice from someone who has done the coolant leak repair. I have a 2000 B5 with 2.8L ATQ engine. I found that the leak was coming from the front coolant pipe. Not the big T pipe that connects to the heads, but the smaller pipe that plugs into the front of the engine...

    I found a 2013 A6 Prestige and it is awesome. I'm taking Passat of the road for a while and get it ready for my 15yr old to "barrow" next year after he starts driving. After 160k miles with few problems I think it's worth keeping.
