SOURCE: oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.

The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.

Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.

You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.

The head gasket is another story.

Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.

Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.

Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.

If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.

If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve

If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.


If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

SOURCE: My automatic volkswagon passat will not shift out of park.

You may try to take the console out from around the shifter and in there its a little moving rod that kind of rocks back and forth to unlock your gear from park when the brake has been steped on.A lot of times drink gets spilled in those and then when you step on the park brake it want disingage which makes it stick in park intermitinly.Any questions just let me know

SOURCE: My 2002 passat 1.8 litre tiptronic automatic shift

Sounds like the whole shifting unit. It has a printed circuit strip unit that usually goes bad or a switch on the side of the transmission. What code is showing? You need to have it scanned at your VW dealership to correctly diagnose your exact problem

How to unlock 2002 vw passat? keys are locked inside


Seriously.....phone an Auto Locksmith.
Expensive but no damage!
It must be nearly impossible to lock yoyr keys into a vw. you are very unlucky.
When you see the locksmith, get them to cut you a manual spare key......just in case.

1998 passat with p1784 code. What does this mean. triptonic shifting works great but when in the automatic shift mode, it seems to shift erratically.


VW code is true P1784 this is a shift up/shift down. Open wire/short to ground.. Its a shift problem caused by a wire that either opened, disconnected, or has shorted,

1996 VW Passat GLS transmission shift problem


Like to make sure that your post says your car is a 1996 with only 38800 miles.
There were many recalls for your vehicle back then which may be the cause of your hard shifting. Are you the original owner ? If so, have you done any scheduled maintenance to it from the day you purchased it ?
