    New-to-me car, but recently did the overheating thing....and was difficult to diagnose. Lots of great posts here on diagnosing, but I'll just add that you can easily check the impeller for looseness by accessing it through the drain plug near the thermostat. Just insert a thin hex key, or...

    This blows. Bad rattling sound and a bunch of coolant shooting out of car this morning. Almost positive it's the waterpump. It has 140K on it.

    OK, I'm in middle of replacing all 8 front control arms on my '03 Passat sedan 1.8T automatic, meanwhile the wifey's SUV loses H2O pump on way home tonite, so we're in a pinch for transportation. On the CA job, I'm at the point where I'm installing the passenger side front LCA. I cannot get...

    June 2010 I did the full TB event with the kit from Blau Parts. All went very well with the excellent resources from PW :salute: Now less than 2 year later and only 23,700 km (14,700 miles) the WP is leaking. I've got the trail of crusty pink on the oil pan, the line from the pump down to the...

    First off I want to thank everyone on the forum---------I would have not considered doing the work on my 2001 b5 If not for a dedicated bunch of people like you who are willing to spare some time contributing to what must be one of the top ten most avid (maybe rabid is a better word?) auto clubs...

    I`ve recently been hearing a knocking grinding sound coming from the waterpump area. Every now and then it actually goes away for a few minutes. Car is an 02 V6 and I replaced timing belt waterpump kit from german auto at 70k. It has 144k now. The waterpump had the upgraded impellar and I`m...

    i am a newbie good day to everyone i need help documents with pic to replace my water pump and timing belt. water is dripping from my car front end from the pump area.

    I've done some searches, but not found any conclusive information. I'm looking to see at what point the original water pump on the V6 generally fails. I'm not in a situation where I can readily drain the coolant, and so I'm going to skip this part of the TB job next weekend. The car is a hair...

    I really want a VW passat. There is one for sale , 2001 model. for 1500, they say all it needs is a water pump, 135K miles, it say mechanically very good, just needs a waterpump, and that he just wants it out his yard, because he just bought his wife another cat instead of getting that one...

    Just finished water pump and thermostat replacement and filled with new coolant. After started the car, I found the coolant is leaking! Under the car, I saw it dropping along the oil pan, and the flow is pretty fast! What could be wrong? I checked the thermostat housing, it seemed not coming...

    Paid 750.00 to have the timing belt, water pump (metal), tensioner, roller, thermostat, snub mount changed today. Not bad, I provided the accessory, thermostat and snub. Wish I was closer to Edge Motors in Haverstraw NY but 3 hours one way is too much. The plastic water pump had a slight...

I have a new one and was wondering if anyone could tell me if i need to pull the tb to change it or if there is a write up that might explain it in detail whats involved...

    Here it is. I had the coolant sensor replaced under warranty (by local Indy, reimbursed by VWoA). Shortly thereafter replaced oil cooler with new OEM. Then began to run cool... replaced thermostat... still ran cool. Replaced thermostat again, still runs cool. All work done by same Indy...

    2003 1.8T with 83K and manual A/C controls. Problem is no hot air coming from vents. I've done a lot of thread searching and it seems that the likely problems are a.) Thermostat stuck open, b.) clogged Heater Core, or c.) cracks on crappy plastic shaft of the water pump resulting in no return...

    I am working on my b5.5 1.8t and am having problems getting the Alternator to re-seat. The clutch fan is getting in the way....See pic..... http://www.ozdgc.com/images/DSCF3875.JPG So the question I have is there a way to remove the clutch fan painlessly to get the alternator to re-seat...

    I have a 99 B5 V6 that is quickly approaching the 70K mark. Ive noticed some extra engine vibration and whatnot (just slight) increasing as the car ages, and I figure its time I invest in a new TB and waterpump. Im located in the Irvine area (orange county), so I prefer stuff closer to that but...
