  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi guys. Back in May 2017, my lovely wife was driving the 2003 Passat 1.8T wagon, and the engine seized. We had it towed to a shop, and they said the valves hit the pistons, most likely. So, I had it towed back to my house, and I began the discovery process to see what failed. The car had...

    I originally purchased this as an engine/tranny package but only needed the tranny. Engine code is AEB. It's from a 1999 VW Passat that was totalled from a rear/side impact. I was told by the previous owner that there is only 80,000 miles on the engine. Comes with coil packs, alternator, power...

    Getting ready to install the EGT but want to see where everyone else has actually tapped in to the manifold. I'm looking for an easier way to do it without removing a ton of stuff. I did it on my TDI but that was when it was dismantled for a half rebuild. Additionally, I lost the connector...

    So this weekend I decided to go over the car a bit more after owning it for about a month and see how things are looking. The first thing I did was replace the vacuum silicone hoses. I was able to get to all except the one that leads to the DV but with some extra time i got it done this morning...

    Guys I've been having a problem for quite a while with my battery. I used to be able to leave the car for months without starting and it would start right up. Now if I leave it more than 1 week it is completely dead. I thought it was the battery as mine was 6 years old so I got a new one. This...

    That infamous dash rattle/squeek by the windshield has been driving me absolutely nuts. I tried the "pipe insulation mod", I tried silicon, grease, socks, you name it, I've done it all, but no success. I can't help it - when the interior of my car squeeks more than a barn door, it makes me :cry...

    Alright, ain't the first, but proud of the install so I have to do a write up: First, got the bar within 2 weeks of ordering it, so cheers to Chas. Got all the necessary tools (safety glasses, dremmel, locktight, torque wrench, etc), put the car up on the ramps, and then went to town. Total...
