    I was replacing my valve cover and cam chain tensioner gaskets on my '02 Passat 1.8L GLS and I'm almost 100% sure I dropped a 1" hex bit into what I'm assuming is an oil passageway right under the exhaust camshaft-side of the drive chain. I removed the cam chain tensioner and the intake...

    Do you have a belly pan for your car? If you have a belly pan, do you keep it on? Sometimes after changing the oil I question whether I should replace the belly pan or leave it off.

  11. Stumble Under Moderate or Hard Throttle - P0303 Code

    B5 Garage
    We have a mis-fire condition with cylinder 3. Under light throttle (cruising) the 1.8t purrs as it should. As soon as you try accelerate or pull a hill you get a mis-fire and loss of power. Only code in the computer was P0303. I'm thinking the mis-fire under load "only" is an indication of...

    New Member Introductions
    About six weeks ago I got a rattle in my 2014 Passat under the floor anytime I drive over a sharp little bump or through a pot hole. It sounds like it could be under the plastic shield that is under the car. Any ideas anyone?

  19. Question about solenoids under intake attached to it

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Wel I managed to snap off two of the fittings one on each solenoid. So I assume I need to replace them. Only problem is I don't know what they are called. And they are too rough for me to get numbers off them. I assume they are with emissions so I must leave them on on my state. Any help is...
