  1. 2000 Passat GLS - Must wait about an hour after first try in order to start

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2000 Passat GLS (ATW) with 167k miles. When I first try to start the vehicle it cranks but does not even attempt to turn over as if it's getting no fire or fuel. Sometimes if I wait for a minute it will start. Most of the time I'll have to wait for about an hour and then it will start...
  2. Its your fuel pump. No wait, youve got no compression?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 99 was driving just find, zero issues. One day I was driving to work and it died. Seemed like a fuel issue. Took it to a VW dealer, the same I always use, who at first said it was a fuel pump issue. I said go for it, repair it. They did so then came back and said there is no compression from...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    so it turns out 210,000 miles and 14 years is how long a factory fuel filter will last before it rusts out and bursts. thank you mister PO for never having it changed. love the tow bill and wasted fuel. my fault for not just doing it, but i figured it HAD to have been done at that mileage. fail...
  6. New car for wife, it's going to be a Passat 14 or wait for 15?

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, Looking for a new car for the wife and have decided to get a TDI Passat, now I just have to decide do we get a 14 which I'm sure will have good savings as the new 15's come out or wait for the 15 and pay a little more. I know the engine will be new but can't find much on the body style...

    So glad to share my passion with others! I just bought my second Passat. This one is a 2002 GLX V6 30 valve, 5 speed manual. Reflex Silver paint job. This one is nicer than my previous 2006 Passat by far. I got it from the local dealership, I had this and another 2002 (blue) side by side...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was so excited to see the box labeled ECSTuning on my doorstep when I got home from work today. Some new side-marker bulbs, an evap purge valve to get rid of that P.0441, and... some really skinny looking oil filters! WTH? These things look really small. They are the BOSCH 72211 filters, and...

    Just a rant about summer: dear summer, can you please go back to where you came from? My poor revo tuned passat really dislikes the day after day of 95+ degrees that you have cursed/blessed (whatever your take is) us with. I look forward to my daily 80 mile highway drive to/from work . I get...
  16. Cracked CV Boots, Replace or just wait to repair?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    2004 B.5 Wagon with only 47,000 miles. The stealer has been telling me for six months the boots are cracking--not split, just cracking. Says I should replace the boots before they split. My trustworthy (unlike the dealer) says "all CV boots over a year old show signs of cracking and your are...
  17. Wait for the parking brake light!!!

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Be warned, if you aren't used to the electronic parking brake, you could be in for a big surprise. Long story made short: I pulled into a parking lot in downtown St. Paul, MN to shop for a new car stereo because the stock system SUCKS :puke: (had to get that out). In my 2000 Passat, I would...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After a year and a half of unfound answers, no signs of serious trouble, and hard deliberations on here and with area techs, one of them gave me something new to chew on earlier this week. I asked him to take a listen to the engine bay to diganose what I've been led to believe is a failing cam...
