    Getting diesel in my engine oil?

    I've got a B5.5 BHW Passat that is getting diesel in the oil. The oil level goes up about 1/2-3/4" in a 1k miles. The engine starts and runs great with no smoking, so not a leaky injector. I first thought it was coming from the tandem pump, so I changed it twice and no change. The only other...

    Another fueling problem.

    My wife's 05 wagon has the long crank problem after sitting over night again. I've gone through everything and appears the tandem pump is letting it drain back again. I changed it a little over a year ago and it lasted about 8 months before it started the problem again. Here is my possible...

    Where to get nut for shift cable?

    Anyone know where to get the "captured" nut for the shift cable up on the transmission for my '96 B4V? The PO had "modified" how the shift cable was mounted to the linkage up on the transmission, but now I'm having some shifter issues and would like to get it back like it's supposed to be, but...

    no drivers side low beam?

    My drivers side low beam headlight is out on my 96 B4V. The car has the euro light switch and glass headlights. The high beam works. Fuses are good and there is power on both sides of the fuse when the switch is turned on. All connections at the bulk connector on the headlight assembly are...

    Donor vehicle possibility?

    I have a 2002 jetta with the dreaded and dead auto trans. There is no local donor vehicles for a 5 speed swap except a 97 passat tdi. I don't think they are compatible for a swap, but figured I would ask. Can a complete swap be done from the 97 passat to the 2002 Jetta? Chuck

    2005 B5 long crank to start

    My wife's B5 has to crank an extended time to start. 10-20 seconds usually. It's not every time, but probably 90% of the time. It will restart immediately after shut off, but longer than 10 minutes and all bets are off. Once started, it runs perfect. There are no visible fuel leaks or raw...

    weak VNT spring?

    I am not getting full boost pressure on my 1996 B4V. It appears to be due to the VNT spring being weak and allowing the boost to be released too soon. I have checked all parts of the pressurized system and everything is good (N75, hoses, etc), but can only get about 12 psi. I have new DLC...

    My glow plug time won't change with VCDS?

    What next? I have a new temp sensor that is giving me close to actual temps, but my glow plug time is 1.01 units and doesn't change no matter what value I program into VCDS. Yes, I have used both the "test" and "save" buttons. I have gone from the max to the minimum allowed save numbers but...

    Engine coolant temp sensor problem.

    My glow plugs are not staying on. When I have my VCDS plugged in, I show the coolant temp of 38.5 Celsius (101 Fahrenheit) after sitting all night in my 35 degree Fahrenheit garage. When I unplug the temp sensor, the reading stays the same, but the check engine light comes on. This is causing...

    Looking for B4V replacement ecm, will this work?

    I am looking for a replacement ecm for my original 1996 B4V plastic cased (BK coded I think) ecm. I have found this one (028-906-012-JB) from a 1998 Passat 1.9 TDI. Will it be a direct replacement? I want to do some tuning and other programming the old 8-bit computer doesn't allow. Chuck...

    B4V liftgate questions

    My kids broke my lift gate. My gate opens with force and my kids are too short to reach it as it opens, so it broke the upper end of the passenger side lift support and the gate latch. The support end threads off, but I can't find where to buy just it and not the complete support. Anyone have...
