Question about 2004 Volkswagen Passat
Last year heat would barely get warm this year no heat at all just fill like a/c is blowing all the time heater core shows no signs of leaking on floor or steaming or antifreeze smell
Do you notice that the engine coolant temperature gauge stays on the lower part of the scale as well? If so, it's likely that your thermostat is stuck open - this prevents the coolant from staying in the block long enough to absorb heat that is used to heat the climate-controlled air. I'm not positive on the 3.0 in your car, but the 2.8 V6 in my Audi A4 requires tremendous disassembly in order to change the thermostat. I believe the 3.0 is the same - the labor involved is only slightly less than that required to do a timing belt change (which, if you change the thermostat, since you're already all the way in there, you may as well do the t-belt service as well so you don't have to pay for all that labor again any sooner than necessary).
