This happened ever since I replaced some PCV parts so I'm assuming I nocked a wire somewhere. The battery is fine I think. Immobilizer? I'm not sure... Third time its happened so I'm sitting here with my battery disconnected to clear codes and see if it fixes it...
I have had a noise from the engine for a bit now. Thought it was the accessory belt tensioner and I haven’t been on a hurry to fix it. The noise has gotten a lot louder lately. During this photo I could tell the noise seems to be coming from the middle or slightly forward of the middle from...
I noticed some play in the timing belt.
I replaced it 10.000 miles/ 7 months ago.
No codes, no misfire, no timing retard etc.
Should I be concerned about it?
It's frustrating not to be able to play audio or video messages on my brand new 2018 Passat from the Whatsapp App on my iPhone connected via bluetooth
All my other cars that are a lot older can will play them without any problems
After googling on the subject, I came across an article...
B6 suspension knock with video
The knock https://youtu.be/_CcbMrx5gxg
Firstly, i'm a car simpleton, just to get that out there. Secondly i have read extensively on multiple sites and forums about possible causes of knocking from the front end and the complaints are never ending...
I've narrowed down my oil leak to the filter housing/casing and wondering if anyone can reference a link to the Youtube video showing the filter housing/casing removal from front of block? I've searched Youtube, Google and PassatWorld with no luck... Thanks in advance!
I recently picked up a decent running B5.5 Passat Wagon.
I've done a couple maintenance items, with a few more to go.
Over the weekend I swapped the three easy vacuum lines, but didn't secure them. That and the TSI coilpack/spark plug swap made a big difference...
AWM Engine Misfiring; what is that noise?! Video included with details!
Quick story -- the Passat started misfiring. It got to the point where it couldn't keep running when throttle was pressed. Had to tow it to a shop. Some $300 of labor later, they indicated there may be an...
I am suffering a number of water ingress problems and also the VW Climatronic Heater Climate Control on a 2001 VW Passat has packed up.
I was on YouTube but was a tad confused by the various videos on offer.
Does anyone have a link for me to follow so I can strip it out and have it...
Long story short, I swapped out a complete AWM engine and trans from a low mile audi into my 2004 Passat which I purchased with major engine damage from an oiling issue. I got the car running yesterday but, not a moment later the transmission started making a horrible noise. I started trying to...
The video gives you a step by step tutorial how to replace the lower ball joint at the front axis of a Passat B3 35i. At this model, the ball joint is demountable from the wishbone. Thus the repair is relatively cheap and easy to do. The wishbone remains in the car, but some other parts...
I posted a thread where this same Passat had heavy misfiring to the point where it shook the entire car. Due to time and other obligations, I decided to leave the car parked for some weeks. I later couldn't start the car anymore -- it would click, click, click rapidly. Found an exposed wire...
The video gives you a step by step tutorial how to replace all belts, including the timing belt at a Volkswagen Passat with the 2.0l 2E engine. This engine has an indermediate shaft for the distributor, thus checking the ignition timing is part of the job and shown as well.
The video has...
2003 1.8T Passat
Video enclosed here:
I think the video shows it all. The Passat had been parked for a while due to a misfire issue but had this issue prior this too. At first it was the battery so I replaced it with a new one -- still dated from 11/14. But this time, I even had the car...
