Went to look at my sisters car today. 2002 V6 30v 4-motion B5 Passat. Could barely get it to start. Once it did, had a rough Idle and poured out quite a bit of smoke. And of course the CEL is on. Im hoping i can Vag it soon.
Wrong forum. Her car has a 2.8 30v, not a 3.0 30v.
From what you describe this sounds like it could have a head gasket pproblem, cracked head, etc. What faults did you find. Have you done a compression test?
