  1. Wacky temp gauge?

    B5 Garage
    On my 2000 Passat 4cyl turbo the temp gauge goes immediately to 90'C when the key is turned on, even before the engine starts. Then it moves to the near red line as I drive. This is new in the last week or so, before it would start at zero degrees and work its way up to 90'C. What's up?

    My 2004 1.8L Passat is acting strange... As the car warms up, the temperature gauge stays very low... Then JUMPS to the standard 190... and then will head back to 0.... and then go all over the "cool" area of the display.. It never shows the car overheating... but clearly something is wrong...

  6. Wacky Idling On 95 Vr6

    Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Since last Sunday my 95 VR6 has been acting up. It will start fine but intermitently it will rev up at idle up to 15-20,000 rpms and stay there until I go into gear. Other times it has stalled out at a light or stop sign (always at idle speed). I replaced the fuel filter and that has not stopped...
  7. Wacky Locking

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just when you think things are good, along comes another electrical gremlin that shows you otherwise. Kind of reminds me of british cars from the 60's and the "Prince of Darkness!" This time he is in my 98B5 1.8T 5sp GLS. Anyway, the central locking system is bonkers. I replaced the drivers...
