    Hi, I've been having issues with my 99 aeb for about a year now. Once it gets about 70 degrees out I had misfires/bogging down/ erratice idle. The problem was that there was NO CELs. It could usually be fixed by turning the car off and starting it right up again. I recently bought a used ECU...

    So I have had my CEL on for awhile now. The other day my wife went to take the car out and the CEL started blinking and it was missing pretty bad. When I got back in town I started it up again about a week later and the same thing, I let it run for a min and it smoothed out...CEL stopped...

    Ok I've read what feels like a billion threads on issues like this, and have it pretty much broken down as either an ignition switch going out or the alternator. OR something completly ridiculous!! I have a 98 Passat 1.8T with 112k miles. When I get into my car and turn the key all the way...
