Problems & Fix (issues) over 250.000 miles (400.000 km) on VW Passat B6 2.0 TDI 140 HP (2006-2010)

We find out from a VW Passat B6 2.0 TDI, 140 HP owner that he drove his car for over 10 years and aproximately 130.000 miles (220.000 km) from the moment he
bought it from Germany in 2012 with aproximately 125.000 miles (200.000 km) on it’s odometer. He told us what problems he had on this car. And we’re gonna start with ECU engine control unit replacement because at one point the car stop running and that’s why it has to be replaced.

Then the owner told us that he put some low quality fuel in the tank and for that he had to clean the inside of the intake manifold and EGR valve. On this particular VW Passat has been replaced some servomotors (V159 & V158) from the HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioner) system. You can find more details related to those servomotors on how to replace it, remove it or fix it.

Because the car is old, the rust is all over the body, wich you can see on the back of the car, on the side and in the front on the bonnet.

An one of the biggest issue on this car is the DSG transmission. The owner told us that when he wants to put the gear shift selector in reverse, the DSG transmission is
making some noises and it doesn’t work properly from the first time. So, the driver has to turn the ignition off and then put it back on and try again until it’s working. So for that, the DSG transmission on this car should be replaced or repaired.
