    B5 Garage
    On my 1.8T recently had "O" ring gasket leak on driver's side of coolant flange at rear of engine. Was on interstate when leak started. Stopped three times to refill system before reaching my destination. Each time engine overheated (temp gauge went to max) before I got refill. Thinking...

    B5 Garage
    I bought another 2003 VW Passat 1.8T I'm not feeling any heat inside the car the temp gauge was reading about 190F when I picked it up. After a few days the engine temp gauge was being funny. Temp kept dropping driving on the highway the temp was at maybe 140F but in the city temp rose too...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was getting NO HEAT out of my vents...5 or 10 degrees above ambient...Tops. Made the last two weeks here in NJ a real joy. I took advantage of the first above freezing day here to do a backflush. I backflushed my 2000 V6 ATQ today for two hours. 1/2 gallon of CLR and 3.5G of hot (when I...
  4. Location of temp sender.

    B5 Garage
    The one for the temp gauge on a '03 2.8 V6. The gauge was erratic , then stopped moving all together. Operating temp remains normal. Also the correct part name, since I asked for a temp sensor, and this one is located lower rad hose area. Didn't fix guage.
  5. Broke off top of coolant temp sensor.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2001 passat V6 260,000 miles. Recently my car has been refusing to start when cold, the only way to get it going is a lot of cranking and starting fluid. My first thought was coolant temp sensor, it was only a few bucks so I picked one up. Attempted to replace it but the retention clip...
  6. Coolant light flashing, and temp gauge also going up (continued, rebooted)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Until the mods figure out what happened to my original thread, I'm starting a new one. Fortunately, since I was auto-notified of responses to the old thread, I have a copy of most of the original replies. Hopefully this isn't a bad omen related to my upcoming timing belt job! I've been...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    99 V6. Was driving along today, and the coolant warning light started flashing. I looked at the temp gauge, and it was approaching red line. :icon_eek: Pulled over immediately. Coolant level is perfect, and perfect pink color. The oil was pretty low (I have a slow leak), but I added some...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an 04 v6. I'm having trouble getting the clip back into place. I've searched the forums and YouTube and got alot of good info but just looking for a little help. There are grooves that the clip goes into. To be clear the clip goes on the inside, not around the tube? I've been trying to...

  12. AWM Exhaust Temp?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I got a VAG OBD-eleven reader for xmas, and I noticed my exhaust temperature is supposedly 1000 degress. That seems awfully hot, is it supposed to be that hot? Or am I looking at the CC temp? How hot is the exhaust manifold supposed to be, because I don't know where to find the sensor for...

    Ever since my friend removed my radiator and did a full timing belt, water pump, thermostat service I have had an issue with the coolant temp on my car and I think it is related somehow to the auxilary fan. The coolant temp gauge never goes above middle while driving or at idle, but if I turn...
