Leak from a rubber on 2001 vw passat engine

There is a rubber prong sticking out from the engine block on the right hand side as you look at the engine. Its between the coolant header tank and the engine below a rubber pipe that runs longitudinally. The rubber prong is like a tube and at the end there is a step because the diameter gets bigger. This rubber prong is leaking coolant. I just need help identifiying this part and what it is called so I can replace it. I dont think it is a freeze plug because I have just seen a picture of them and it isnt the same. Please help thanks.

SOURCE: 2001 VW Passat leakin water

I would highly suggest a pressure test to really pin point this leak. I can tell from diagram that the coolant expansion tank line goes right thru that area. I would also caution you to the obvious with this vehicle- everything is a tight fit and coolant leaking from the t-stat housing and or water pump could look similiar. I strongly suggest a pressure test to keep from throwing good money away.

SOURCE: 2001 VW Passat AUG Oil Pump replacement - how to get around support beam

Best thing to do is to undo the engine mounts and lift the engine up. You can use an ond seat belt and a strong peice of wood that will fit accross the engine bay. You can use a tie-down ratchet as well to lift up the engine as it will make things easier. then you'll have more room to remove the pan. Cheers.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

How do I remove the front seats for 2001 VW Passat?


Raise car and block securely. Underneath on floor pans directly below seats you will see oval or round rubber grommets.(plugs) Use flat screw driver to pry out. You will see a nut under each. Remove nuts and remove seat. Installation of aftermarket seats may require you to drill new holes and or addition of shims to square up the base of the new seat. Flat washers work well.

Where is the diagnostic port located on my 2001 passat 5 sp. auto V6?


On the old Volkswagen Passat B5 (MY 1997-2001) the Data Link Connector (DLC) or diagnostic port is placed on the right side of the parking brake lever, under a small rectangle rubber cover. See pictures below:

Need to change light bulb on 2006 vw passat. Do I turn the square block in the light housing or the fixture in the square block.???


HI,

There are 2 bent prongs that hold the light bulb in. The tooth faces down, and the prongs are positioned parallel to each other.

Leave the harness connected as you will use this to wedge it out.

With a hook tool (Walmart in tool section $8) position it over one of the prongs. With the other hand, reach in and pull on the harness down towards the tooth while pushing in on the prong. Once you get that side to slide forward a bit, the other will release.

Be careful not to touch the bulb if you plant to replace or reuse. They are not something you can buy OTC. These bulbs are made in Germany & they are made to be this color. Aftermarket lights have a yellow tint compared to these. They are comparable to the White Star $20 each.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Where is oil pressure switch on vw passat 1.8T 2001 Y plate?. and how do i change it?


it is on the rear of the engine, on the left hand side. it leaks oil a lot and sometimes the switch goes bad too. by left hand side i mean the left of the vehicle, not your left if you are looking at the engine from the front. you replace it from up top. it is iether just below the head on the block, or on the head itself.

Water ingressing into car vw passat


I have a 2001 VW New Passat and I found a little black piece sticking out on the driver side.... open the door and just above the top door hinge there is a little black piece sticking out right there... it should feel a bit soft to the touch (at least mine did anyways)... I squeezed it and a BUNCH of nasty slimy water came gushing out.. come to find out this is a drain tube that gets clogged up easily. Just squeeze it with your fingers and see if that lets the water out.
