On a recent trip to the Toy Store for Men, Harbor Freight, I was on a quest to obtain a nice 3/8" ratchet, as my new chariot, a '17 CR-V, uses 10mm bolts for nearly everything, and a 1/2" drive is overkill for that, if I even had a 1/2" 10mm, which I don't.
Like many DIYers my only 3/8"...
Recently I pulled the following fault codes (P0140 and P1176) that related to the Oxygen Sensor (B1 S2) from my 2000 Passat 1.8T (among other codes).
I called my nearest autozone and got quoted $130 for OEM downstream oxygen sensor and $65 for the universal oxygen sensor that needs to be...
I was looking for keys for my 08 b6 2.0 tdi dsg and i came across this ebay listing,
Brand New Volkswagen VW Passat B6 Key Fob Smart Key Remote With Uncut Key | eBay.
these say that they are un-used and never been programmed,
do you'll think i could use these for my car?
i intend to get them...
I have officially gone 2 months without a single check engine light :lol: I have a feeling having the wrong alternator on my car was screwing with all my sensors because ever since I got it back from volskwagen, I haven't had a secondary air injection pump or catalytic converter code come back...
I have seen a lot of people on here saying the factory intake is good enough and cold air intakes suck. Why? Has anyone done dyno testing to back this up?
I've been hashing the idea of custom building an intake to place the filter on a longer pipe farther from the engine on my v6. The...
I read that somewhere, but does anyone know if this is accurate and if there is a significant bump in performance? Without a mod, could this be accomplished? If so, I suppose the 93 is mod whenever filling up with it?
I'm not clear on this, any clarification would be appreciated.
Okay so I don't know if it's just me, but I love true bi-xenon headlights. The color flicker. The sharp cutoff. The outrageous mind numbingly bright high beam. You know, those things. (Although the W8 lights are great I really can never justify the $1,000 price tag)
Anyway, as some...
Hey there everyone,
Too much noise coming from the front side of the engine so I guess it's time for a full belt swap including all the tensioners and belts around! Browsing around I came across this "REPAIR KIT" on 1stvwparts 058198479 which I can't make sure if includes the old or the new...
To save you time, here's the TLDR:
I know very little about cars.
I just bought my Passat and would love to customize it in small ways.
I would love to find out how to make it last as long as possible... This is the first car since my 1997 Sebring LX that I have actually LOVED...
Location: Tulsa, OK
19x8 RS6 wheels et30
ST coilovers (FTG 24 5/8")

my ? is with a 99 passat 1.8t aeb engine, being an interference engine if it were to jump timing will it still run? just rough, an assuming it bent a valve what would be symptoms.if time belt broke i take it, it wouldnt run at all , idk what to do the car has 173k on it very good condition...
Is this Passat a completely new car or a mid life upgrade on the B6? When the "new" B5 came out it was really only a change to the exterior with most of the parts remaining the same. From a timing point of view it is probably more likely to be a B6.5 unless VW have got their self in gear to...
Is it true that you can just leave the radio power on for an hour and the radio will reset itself . I just bought a 2001 passat , put a new battery in and well .... by my question can guess the rest , I don't have the code
So, I've been calling all shops around town, even the VW dealer and they all say that they can't do an alignment on my 99 V6, that its not possible to do it... what the heck!!!!! :poke::banghead:
So, my car is sentenced to pull to the right forever now?
I looked up to see if I would find any...
