    Starting trouble; CCT or FPR? A week ago, I started getting a CEL with code 16396/P0012, Advance Setpoint Not Reached. This weekend, so far it only seems to be when the engine's warm, but I'm having trouble starting. It's acting like there's not enough fuel, but once the engine finally does...

    I am getting the fault codes shown below. Could the Oxygen Sensor problem cause the cylinder misfires? I think I already have an extenders on the O2 sensors. The car seems to drive fine but when I come to a stop with the engine running, it idles very rough. This happens when the car is fully...

    Monday evening, my daughter was sitting in a fast food drive-thru 2 hours away when she heard hissing, saw vapors, and the check engine light started flashing. She quickly pulled into a parking place and shut it down. When she called me, she said she opened the hood and saw that the expansion...

    I will apologize in advance for the lengthy post :bowdown: I have some questions about any areas that might need preventative maintenance attention on my 03 GLX 4Motion Variant (Wagon). I am particularly interested in any engine related items that would not initiate a fault or trouble code for...

    Hi, I'm hoping to get some clarification on this? I read in the Haynes manual that disconnecting the battery on passats with an auto transmission will result in having to get the tcm reset? Thing is, I pulled the battery out to check the drains a few weeks ago and do not seem to have a problem...

    First off, I'd just like to preface this by saying I did already read a few threads, so have some idea of what the issue might be. Long story short, I was driving my 2000 VW Passat wagon with about 158k miles on it, my passenger got carsick on the highway before they could roll the window down...

    A little while ago, the check engine light came on on my 02 Passat V6. The dealership couldn't find anything wrong with it but they ended up replacing some vacuum line that they said could have been the issue. Coincidently, my dad put regular gas in it around this same time. The check engine...

    Hi all, I got new tires and got the balancing done twice in two different shops but there still is a slight vibration at high speed. Would the chipped rim cause vibration? The chips were the result of rim being clamped during the tire change. I got Raxles 2 years ago, still driving OK and the...

    Thought it would be an easy swap cause they looked so similar. boy was I wrong! Got a set of cheap headlights with ballasts out of the yard. Thought a simple lens / housing change would be in order but found out they were completely different so I had to go another route The question became how...

    So... about a year ago I installed a new steering wheel on my car, and unfortunately it caused airbag light to be on for some reason. I swear I double checked if I plugged everything in etc. but no effect so I left it out like it was, didn't care as much recently (lol) I have noticed though...

    Hi Guys, As per the title, been having issues with the battery discharging overnight. I've had central locking / alarm issues for a while, had the comfort module checked and the wiring and all is fine. If the locks are faulty could this cause the battery to discharge? Cheers

    HELP! Can a faulty MAF sensor eventually cause a transmission to fail? I was in a front end collision a while back and soon after got codes P0431 (warm up catalyst bank 2 efficiency below threshold), P0441 (EVAP emission control sys incorrect flow), and multiple cylinder misfires, then started...

    I have an 02 Passat sedan and it seems when I put wheels on the front with aluminum spacers I start getting an intermittent ABS and ASR light. VAG-COM indicates it's on the right side. I took them off to put the snows on recently and after a couple of weeks the intermittent lights went away...

    My 1999 1.8T lost power and turned Ford. Looking under the hood there is a noticeable amount of oil freshly sprayed over most of the driverside of the engine. Upon closer expection I found a flang/hose that seems to have developed a large cavity but I'm not sure of what this part is/does/called...

Also, 4.0 volts on green/white wire to fuse #28 and the green wire to fuse #29. The red/green wire from fuse #29 has...

    Just replaced the valve head gasket. Well I was in there I noticed two things. 1: The timing belt is maybe a 1/32 inch off the top wheel. 2: The following.. Am I looking a dino oil usage? The dreaded turbo sludge? Both? Or paranoia? (Engine has been sitting for 4-5 days, thats why its so dry...

    When I shift hard and some times just go from vac to voost too fast I get a slight feel of a misfire. And recently had a cyl 3 misfire code stored. After this I got my valve cover painted. Deleted my icm and put in r8 coils and new bkr7e plugs at .040. And it is still doing it just less often...
