  1. If money WASN'T a problem, what engine mods would you do to a B5? (and other dumb ?s)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    newb thread, I know, "Learn to search", etc... sorry in advance. Looking for some experienced opinions and I thought I would chat it up here before wasting a shop tech's time. Bit of background: I just came into a little cash from a work bonus, and I'd like to get a different ride. I don't...
  2. found a feature i wasnt aware of.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    i was driving into work today like i do everyday, but today was a balmy 30 degrees. i had my coat on, useful until the engine warms up enough to give out precious heat. i dropped my cell phone (not using it, i keep it in the door handle) and reached down to retrieve it. pulled my arm up, theres...

  4. ccm wasnt in car

    New Member Introductions
    hello everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just brought a 99 1.8t with 150k. It runs real good. One small problem do. None of the windows, climate lights or sunroof would work. I did a lil searching and found out about the ccm in a black box under the driver carpet. So i went to take the box out and...
  5. actually wasnt the oil pump this time

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    98 passat AEB with 214000 mi had intermittent low oil pressure. after all the checks i decide to go after the oil pump. I get the pan down to find a bearing setting in the bottom and my stomach sank. It is the bearing to the intermediate shaft (like a cam bearing on an OHV engine). It must have...
  6. Squeaking problem, wasn't answered in squeaky wheel thread

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have this constant squeaking that is not all the time but very often. It happens when just driving straight and when I turn the wheel or tap the brake it stops (until I release the brake). It comes back when I turn the wheel driving a curve. I'm guessing it's brake related but I'm not too...

  9. It wasn't comfortable...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    but I fit a 32"x80" door in the B5.5 Sedan with the trunk closed. :lol: Also had a stack of 1"x96" boards in there too. Luckily it was dark so I was spared a lot of goofy looks from other drivers. I only had to slide the seat forward one notch but the back rest was almost vertical. You...
  10. Well, what do you know. It wasn't the transmission after all!

    B5 Garage
    I've been dealing with an occasional harsh shifting problem that grew into a frequent shudder problem this week. Thought for certain it was the transmission, likely caused by the mystery fluid that AAMCO filled my transmission with 2 years ago after a rebuild. Looks like I owe AAMCO an...

  12. One day, some will say that Bush wasn't so bad.

    The Black Hole
    I have a feeling... Sure Bush was in bed with Oil and Mercenary companies....BUT is that as bad as being in bed with the banks. Hmmm, really puts a perspective on things. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aZ27ITF7gaoQ I think our government is in a race of "who can bring...
  13. Finally figured out why my ABS light wasn't coming on

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Last time my car was in the shop I found out what the 3 beeps (besides the seat belt) were when I start my car. They told me it was my ABS control module and suggested I check out my break light switch and my light in the cluster 1st before I go off and spend the money to get it repaired. So I...

  15. It wasn't the diverter valve... ideas?

    B5 Garage
    Dear fellows. I have a 1998 Passat Variant with the 1.8 L engine and manual transmission. Soon after I bought the car last february the turbo went out, the shaft just broke in 2. I replaced the turbo, burned all the oil in the muffler and the car is running pretty well after that. Until I start...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    N75- boost control- now fixed I've had a previous post that i thought my tranny was at fault. However, a friend at a VW dealer kindly scanned my car yesterday and this is what we got: Vehicle System: 01 - Engine electronics 8D0907557P 1.8L R4/5VT MOTR AT D04 Coding 6051 004.01- Chech...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Anyone have the Alientech? Check this out, I found this out today, I didn't know it did this. It was kinda warm today here in Indy, about 75 F, so I'm walking towards my car and roll down all the windows. I get in and WITHOUT putting the key in the ignition yet, I reached up and rolled the...
