  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all, I'm the owner of a 2000 b5 Passat with the 2.8l v6. Whenever under acceleration, there is a loud whistle sound, akin to rapid blasts of air. I'm not sure exactly where it is coming from, any ideas?

    When the car has been off for a while and I turn it on I get a whistle sort of noise from under the hood for about 10-15 seconds, I read some reviews that there is a certain timing belt that is loud until it warms up? If it were just once I turn the car on it'll be ok I guess, but out of nowhere...

    I have a bad, and getting worse, VCG leak on my late AWM (the one with the three-port PCV); I can smell the oil after nearly every drive now and my plugs and coils are soaking in puddles of oil. A few months back I checked (and broke, of course) the Suction Jet Pump. It was as clean as the day...

    I have problem with high vacuum/under pressure on valve covers. I also know that there has to be small vacuum. This time the vacuum is so high that you have to take good grip when you try to open oil cap. Yesterday I was wondering a “whistle” sound on my car and first I thought it was some...

    When I drive with the radio and air off I can hear a faint whistle noise in the cabin. I think it's coming from the steering wheel. When ever I turn the steering wheel the pitch of the whistle changes. Does anyone else have this issue? Solutions? Thanks!

    hello dub nation, so i got a b5 2.8 30v with a really bad whistle from the engine once its warmed up. once you pull the dipstick or the oil cap it instantly goes away, which tells me theres a leak in my crankcase somewhere. theres quite a bit of vacuum going into the crankcase cuz it takes a...

    So I have a few questions for you guys and hopefully you can either A) help me or or B) reassure me. First point: Last night I was driving back from my girlfriends house and we were on I-485 with a fair amount of a fog. Before I could react, I hit what looked like to be someone's front bumper...

    After changing my front pads and rotors, (http://www.passatworld.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2426705&postcount=24), my car has started whistling when I brake. In only does this after the brakes are warmed up. With heavy or very light pressure on the break pedal there is no noise. It does have a...

    04' Passat GLS When cruising at highway speeds there is a really annoying whistle from the sunroof. If i close the cover it muffles it a bit, but then what's the point of a sunroof?! I read a couple of threads on resitting it but they were for :b5: and they didn't have an actual writeup. any...

    Newbie post here so apologies if this is somewhere my search didn't turn up. I have a 2004 2.8l V6 Passat Sedan and recently I have noticed that it makes a brief high pitched whistling noise about 5 seconds after shutdown. I am pretty sure this is coming from the A/C spinning down......the A/C...

    I have a very annoying whistle that occurs when I am driving at high speeds, or if the wind is blowing considerably hard (I live in KS). My search results only led me to mechanical whistles coming from the engine or other areas under the hood. I am doubtful that this is the case because the...

    I had a wind whistle at the top of my windshield for about 4 months and it was driving me zooey. It finally dawned on me that it started when I had my windshield replaced; glass installer must have put the small visor in the up position. I always kept the small "visor" in the down position...

    I'm getting a strange whistle sound coming from the engine at around 3k rpm. It is most noticable in 1st and 2nd gear than others. Just reaplaced the DV, but still getting a little bit of surging. Could it be a vaccum leak? Or should I be looking for something else?
