    I have a 2005 Passat with the 1.8t engine. I purchased the car for my son as a first car. It has 100k miles on it. The timing belt broke a couple of months ago an I’ve just now had time to start working on it. I pulled the head to check for damage, but as I am new to these engines, I was...

    OK so, I had recently replaced a whole laundry list of Engine parts except the accessory belt tensioner I had reused the old one. Realized within the first month that I needed a new one. Trying not to remove to many parts while installing new accessory belt tensioner I had removed the left head...

    I have a 2001 Volkswagen Passat, v6 (idk if that matters) and 5 speed manual. but the timing belt broke on it about 2-3 years ago. I don’t know if the engine pistons have broken or not, but I really like this car. I’m just trying to figure out if it’s worth it to replace the timing belt (and...

    Hello all, now I did make a post about changing the timing belt on my 2.8L V6 30v because of how badly it was neglected by the previous owner(s) I ran into a few extra snags, I finally managed to get some time off to get back into working on it, I got it timed and I have the timing belt on...

    Hi guys, I hope this is the right place to post this question. Today I finally decided to start the big job on my 2003 B5.5 1.8T, and the main part of it would be the timing belt. So, as this is the first time I'm doing it, I decided to take the long route and remove the radiator support panel...

    I have multiple parts that need replacing on my 2008 2L Turbo 4 Cyl FSI Automatic Passat with 185592 miles. I just had toe surgery so I will buying the parts and having a reliable/well reviewed mechanic in the Atlanta suburbs perform the labor for a reasonable hourly fee ($75-$85). Another...

    Hello, my Passat is reading only 5 psi of boost currently. I have a check engine light for the camshaft position sensor and for a turbo under-boost. My timing belt is off by one or two teeth. Could that being off cause my car to go into limp mode? I changed all vacuum lines and my diverter valve...

    Hi all, 2001.5 Passat sedan 1.8t AWM, 174,800 miles. I've been working on the timing belt job from hell for the past two weeks. I first thought I had everything done, then I cranked it and the car wouldn't start (it would only crank). After realizing the belt was off 2 teeth I tore it apart...

    You know the feeling you got when you spotted your future wife / husband.......Same thing happened when I saw this Passat. I have owned VW's for the past 10 years (i'm 32) from Golfs, Jettas, CC's, but the B5.5 passat grandpa has always caught my eye. Long story short, I'm going to look at the...

    I have a 2002 Passat Wagon (2.8 l) I got from my non-mechanically inclined sister essentially for free. However, she has no documentation or knowledge of whether the timing belt has been changed (she bought the car used). My question to the community is whether white paint markings on the cam...

    I have replaced my water pump and timing belt once before with no problem. I am not an experienced mechanic, but I am learning. I got myself into a bind this time and I really need some help. Recently, I needed to replace the water pump and had to remove my timing belt. I used the camshaft...

    So I'm just trying to get some opinions on this: My 2003 V6 4motion has not seen many miles (just approaching 63k) which means many consumable items on my car are as old as the day they came out of the factory. The car has never been left standing for a long period of time, the vast majority of...

    Just upgraded from an '02 1.8T w/ 182K miles to the '14 1.8T with a well maintained 98K miles. First, I'll assume the '14 has a belt, not a chain. 2nd, I'll assume it is a totally redesigned 1.8 for the 2014. So does the '14 require timing belt changes like my B5 did? Hopefully less... It...

    Hello Everyone, just joined for help with an 03 passat wagon. I've read SoundGuyBob's thread re: TB failure and head rebuilds twice so I'm suitably warned about the craziness that might ensue. Need to know a little about checking out a used engine and what to expect with an engine swap. It's...

    I have a 2003 passat wagon v6 30 valve. I was in the process of replacing my timing belt and as i was turning the crank, the belt jumped by at least three teeth. I realize now that the belt tensioner wasn't fully engaged. What would be the best process, in order to get the cams back into...

    Hey folks! I am new to this forum and Volkswagens. I'm 17 years old and accidentally totaled my previous car (1986 BMW 325) and have been working full time to get the money for a new vehicle. My fascination with VWs has been increasing, and I just about have the money to buy something...
