Hello, I'm new to forums of any kind, but my son told me to try this out.
ive just brought a 1.8 1999 passat - -it was a repossesion and has been standing for a few months.
on the way home it would not idle and cut out every time.
once home i changed the spark plugs and checked the air filter - also checked the exhaust for leaks but that seems ok
now it starts but runs realy lumpy and still cuts out. it's drivin me mad !
i have bought the VW elsawin software but i think it's a waste of money [unless i'm using it wrong]
and just to annoy me ,the sump plug it that tight that ive bent my socket bar trying to loosen it[it badly needs an oil change]
can anyone give me any pointers to start checking ?
any help very much appeciated
