    I just did the CCT, cam cap and VCG in my 2003 2.8 4mo, the driver side I'm thinking is going to be harder with less space and the inner TB cover in the front. If I try to depress the tensioner with tool 3366 and unbolt the intake cam bearing caps like I did on the pass side, is there enough...

    Bit of backstory: 2001 B5 ATQ with 160k, had sat for about a year waiting until we could afford to get the shredded CV joints replaced. Got that done, car ran great. Oil wasn't too horribly bad so waited a bit to change it (yes very stupid mistake). About 3 months ago (after driving about a...

    Hey guys, finally warmed up enough to get my hands dirty with the oil leak issues. Have the PCV replacement hoses/parts, VCGs, RTV, video instructions, etc. Hopefully this goes a little easier than the timing belt job! First time on this job too, so I'm sure I'll run into some snags. So, I...

    Hey all! Going to be servicing my vcg's soon and wanted to know if there're any other parts or seals I should do while it's apart. It's had timing belt and tensioner w/ pump done less than 10k ago so I'm good there. Also I cleaned the pcv system and saip system 300 miles and and all codes have...

    Hello. Plan to replace the VCG, and all other caps and gaskets in the valve cover area tmrw. It's a 2002 2.8l V30 v6 Hoping someone can provide me with proper torque specs for all the bolts involved. Many thanks. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I have a B5.5 V6 30V ATQ passat. It is leaking oil from what appears to be the Valve cover gasket and probably the cam chain tensioner. I have done some research and am going to replace both gaskets. However in looking at parts on Blauparts and ECS tuning website, can anyone that has done this...

    Car is an 01.5 ATQ. I recently did my valve cover gaskets, this was the first time starting the car after torquing the valve covers down almost a week ago. (I was waiting on other parts to ship.) Everything's fine for a few minutes, then smoke from the bottom of both valves. ??? What gives? I...

    Finally got a chance to try to track down this oil leak (car has been sitting so it hasn't been out of use). 2005 GLS 4Motion Wagon, 1.8T. Finished head replacement back in June due to head crack causing coolant in the oil. Entire top end is essentially new/redone, PCV system, the works. 4...

    I'll preface this by saying I know I need to replace my pcv system. But a $54 kit plus a $10 vented oil cap is far more reachable for me right now than a $120-$140 pcv kit and the vcg kit. I'll take the risk of having to do it again. With that said, I'm about to order my parts, but I...

    I replaced my VCG on my 2003 AWM 1.8t today. And I got this noise after everything was buttoned up: 362CFFC6-3C17-427C-9625-4FC5F611E650.mp4 Video by madfoxdesigns | Photobucket The cam chain looked good, no slack. Tensioner seemed clean and ok. Plastic covers over cams ok. Didn't encounter any...

    What are they? I already know the spark plug gasket bolts are 84NM or 7 foot pounds but what are the vcg's?

    Hello first post so please be patient. I have researched my oil leaks on this site and found that I have to replace the PCA valve and hoses and at least the valve cover gaskets, others have also had to replace additional parts to stop the leaks ( cam plugs - seals ? ) I have looked at the ECS...

    Ok guys I have an issue with the Valve cover gasket. I am getting oil in the coolant. I have replaced all the "lower cost" parts and ruled them all out (coolant reservoir, PCV valve, and oil cooler). I am left with the VCG unless someone has any other ideas. I know people have posted about this...

    Car is an 01.5 AWM. 5MT. 107k miles. So last fall I replaced the PCV bleeder, puck valve, and a few PCV hoses. I then replaced the valve cover and cam tensioner gaskets. Fast forward to today when I went to change the plugs and found a little seepage around the sides of the valve cover and some...

    So today I finally changed my valve cover gasket set. And it was successful so far. After reading threads and looking up multiple YouTube posts, this noob got up enough courage to try it. I own a 2004 1.8 manual 4motion. I love this car and wonder what car I can purchase in the future that will...

    They are leaking very severe and need replaced. Until I can fix them, could I do a quick fix with silicon on them and clean out the pcv system so I can keep oil in my car? I drive a 2003 GLX 2.8L V6 with 170K.

    i have done both of these today in one hit and i have run into a few issues. firstly once i had used the tensioner tool and removed the bolts on the cct , i lifted it and removed the gasket and half moon. I then found that where the three bolts go in to the back wall of the head to hold the cct...

    My 2005 Passat V6 4Motion wagon recently started running rough and throwing code P0303. The car has 92k miles. After some inspection I found that the valve cover gaskets are bad and maybe some of the other seals. I was just about to order a gasket kit from Blau, but it looks like the kit isn't...
