heres the deal, I just got a 2004 passat GLS (automatic). Occasionally when Im sitting at a stop light, or just have my foot on the break my car stalls out and the battery light comes on. I turn off the car and put it in park so i can turn it back on and the only way i can get it to start again is by revving my engine. When it finally starts the EPC light comes on, but no check engine light. My bf is obcessed with vw but of course he has a mk3 jetta, which he knows everything about and doesnt know much about my b5.5.
We already checked the vacuum line and we came across this
its the hose/check valve after the purge valve.
Check valve looks like it was eaten by acid on one side, and the hose was almost completely broken.
we replaced it and we thought it fixed the problem and like a day later the check engine light came on the code it gave me was P0000 (im not sure if this has anything to do with my problem cause that code means no codes found or some like that). I cleared the code and it hasnt come back on since.
Please, if anyone has an idea what the hell is wrong with my car I could really use the help. We are thinking it has something to do with the throttle body, but idk.
this is my first vw! and if i cant figure out what is wrong with it, it might be my last!
PLEASE HELP ME!
This is my new baby and I would love to be able to drive it with out fearing for my life!
and in case ur interested this is my bfs mk3
