    I am not asking for help or advice. I am posting this as a solution that worked for me in case anybody else has the same problem. My car was running fine except intermittently the engine would stop for a split second and then start again and continue as if nothing had happened. It shocked me...
  2. The Showroom
    Guy asked me to handle disposal of his 2003 VW while he is away internationally. At first I was quite dubious of the W8 and a Passat in general after having a few with endless issues. Come to find out these W8's are INCREDIBLE. Love the drive, and the options are pretty baller too. Headlamp...

    2001.5 B5, AWM, 1.8T, 171Kmiles, Auto transmission. I was traveling to Atlanta today on business and as I was driving, the car stumbled, hesitated, didn't respond as normal and the CEL came on. I checked the codes and had multiple with two misfire codes. I replaced the two coil packs at a...

  9. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yesterday I had something "new" happen on my B5 and I'm hoping somebody can diagnose it. I was driving home on the Interstate, with the cruise control set at ~72 mph, when I felt an abrupt "stumble". The car seemed to lose power for just a second, as if I had slipped it into neutral or shut...
