  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am looking at purchasing a 2004 Passat with a 2.8 V6 for my daughters first car. I looked over the car and started it up. It runs so smooth you could place a glass of wine on the engine and not spill a drop. But I had a friend put it in gear while holding the brake and I saw something I...

    I have changed the upstream O2 sensor last week and this week I want to change the downstream one. I've been watching many videos and searching a lot through write ups and pictures but the more I see the more confused I get. :rolleyes: In the posted videos and pictures the downstream O2 sensor...

    My first Passat just joined the herd of other assorted cars in my driveway. I have owned countless bugs, type II's even a Porsche 914, and currently a 98 Jetta TDI that is up to 322k. The Jetta runs great, but had the rear end rearranged by a Tahoe at Christmas time. I'm going ot fix it...

    I was checking my oil and I noticed my crankcase breather hose is completely gone. There is oil mess everywhere down there, which explains the burning smell. How long can I put this off, I can't fix it myself. Pissed cuz I just had my valve cover gasket replaced and that looks like it's...

    Hey guys n' gals. Barely a week ago my Honda got totaled in a hit-and-run accident in the parking lot at my job and because it's considered "private property" I couldn't file a police report. Since I didn't have collision on the car, I pooled all the money I had, found a buyer for the Honda and...
  8. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    This morning, on my way to work, I experienced a very rough start on my 2008 2.0T (approx 60,000 miles on it). It was about 30 degrees out, and the car had been off for over 12 hours. I turned on the car and immediately the engine was shaking a LOT. I tapped the gas pedal and the MIL light...

    I recently cracked my tranny pan and had it welded, along with an extra piece of metal to protect it further. I bought 6 quarts of the VW stuff, a new gasket, and a new filter. Filter installed fine (although I think I overtightened the bolts...) and I put the magnets back in randomly (is this...

    Here's the most basic tire question anyone could probably come up with. ;) 2000 Passat V6 station wagon currently has Michelin Energy MXV4 plus 195 60 15r. I believe the stock size is 195 65 15r. Don't know how I got 60s there. Since yesterday the front passenger tire shredded itself...

    I'm replacing the passenger side axle on my v6, and the upper control arm ball joints are really ruining my day. I got the mounting nut off, but I can't get the long bolt (what size is it? m10x100?) out. I've sprayed it with penetrant two days in a row and the damn thing is still so rusted in...

    I just came in looking around for information on these cars. I don't own one at the moment but I am looking for a wagon. I am a huge German car fan, have owned air cooled VWs, several BMWs, a Mercedes Diesel wagon, and several Porsches but never a water cooled VW. I'll look around and may ask...

I do plan on getting the windows tinted. That wheel gap is a bit annoying too... 2004 Passat GLS. Black with gray...
