So I removed the engine to replace the timing chains and some gaskets, etc. Now when I have put it back, it won't start anymore. VCDS says 00513 - Engine speed sensor (G28) 03-00 - No signal. Ok, seems pretty simple - replaced the sensor. Nothing changed. Checked the wiring - everything...

My wife has a 1999 VR5 2.3 Estate/Station Wagon and the battery goes flat if it is not used for a couple of weeks.
There is the noise of a fan running continuously at the back of the engine after the ignition key has been removed - even hours and days after!
This is not the radiator fan at the...

Hi all, this is my first post.
I cant be the first to ask this.
I have just fitted a W8 Dome/map reading light to my 1999 VR5 passat.

Not much info on the VR5 floating around, so here's hoping some more will come out of the woodwork!
Just picked this up through the family. Please ignore the state of it, I've not had time to wash it yet!

Hi, does anyone know what is the main difference between these VR5 engines? I have older passat -99 VR5 syncro and 110kw, but the newer one has 125kw. May be there is a chance to modify my passat's engine a little to get these extra 15kw? I think that main difference is ECU, but i'm not sure.
I've just paid a deposit for a mint looking '99 Passat VR5 today. I'll post some pic's after I've picked it up next week. It's got a top spec - climatronic, electric sunroof, heated seats, half leather/alcantara, etc.
What's the difference between the V5 & VR5 ? Is it just the badge ?
