Self Study Program 251 – The Passat Model Year 2001

VAG SSP 251. This Self-Study Programme summarises the design features of the Passat 2001. It provides you with information about the various engines and gearboxes, the front and rear axle configurations, the electronics and the modifications to the convenience system. The design and function of the various components and modules will not be explained in depth in this SSP.

Descriptions of modifications always refer to the predecessor model. A number of the technologies cited in this Self-Study Programme have previously been described in other Self-Study Programmes. To enable you to brush up your knowledge of specific technologies, we have enclosed an index at the back of this SSP. It refers you to the relevant Self-Study Programmes by keywords such as “TUMBLE INTAKE PORT”.

(In the case of the “tumble intake port” you are referred to SSP 195 – the SSP in which this technical feature is described.)
