    Sold Passat - parts to unload

    Okay guys, I went over to the dark side and traded my 05 Passat TDI for a new 07 BMW 328i gasser. With a commute of only 2 miles to work I found that I was only putting maybe 600 miles per month on my car if I didn't take a road trip. I thought my Passat TDI would better serve someone who has a...

    finally - mufflerectomy on my mk4 pd jetta and golf!!!!

    little if any increase in exhaust note there is simply next to NO increase in exhaust note after removing the muffler. go to the muffler shop and have them cut the exhaust pipe in front of the muffler, then fire up your diesel and listen. the muffler is nothing but extra baggage. trust...

    new 2006 jetta additives

    Stanadyne performance & lubricity formulas Recommended by VW. I have used both products in large doses in both of my TDIs. My Passat never smokes and runs smooth as silk. I also use a biocide (Biobor) and diesel fuel system cleaner by BG. CP

    Another A/C Question

    ditto - a load of crap mine works fine in this position. air is split evenly between floor and dash. your dealer must have an answer for everything: oh, they all sound like that... they all ride like that, it is normal.. that is normal, all diesels smoke like hell... etc.

    2004 Passat TDI or 2006 Jetta TDI?

    buy new Buy the new Jetta, don't buy someone else's problems. The price of the Passat is too close to a new Jetta. You will like the DSG in the Jetta (I had one in my 2004 NB). I test drove a new Jetta TDI and loved it. It drove and rode much better than I thought it would. I realize that...

    Dirty Dirty Fuel

    hit it with Biobor From what the others are telling you, algae could be your problem. Order some Biobor or other biocide and shock your tank. The algae won't stop growing once it is started unless you hit with a biocide or drop your tank and sterilize it. The algae feed on diesel and moisture...

    Dirty Dirty Fuel

    biocide You might consider a serious dose of biocide. No telling what could've been growing in your tank over the last 56k miles. I use Biobor biocide regularly to ensure that I don't have any algae growing in my tank. There is no telling how nasty some gas station fuel tanks have become...

    My first problem w/ Passat

    baloney! I can't believe you paid the bill for this. I think you should contact VW Corporate and file a complaint. If it doesn't say specifically in the owner's manual what to use (as with the 505.01 oil) there is no justification for the dealer charging you. In fact, he is probably charging it...
