    Hello I recently bought a 2008 Volkswagen Passat and it started idling roughly not long after I got it. I had it scanned and the codes P0171, P0300, P0301, P0302, P2181, and P0441 came up. I took it and had the oil changed the next day and I was about 30 miles down the road when I heard a sound...

    Hi everyone, I have an ongoing issue with my 2009 2.0 TSI B6 Passat that I can't seem to figure out. I've had the car for five years; just a few months into owning it, I had a new throttle body and throttle body harness installed because the EPC light came on (with the rev limiter also coming...

    While on a long drive the car EPC turned on, car lost power. So initially I thought the problem was the ignition coils and spark plugs, since I was getting misfire codes, and thats exactly what it felt like, I changed those and was still dealing with misfire issues and symptoms. I went ahead and...

    I drove about 200 miles after fixing my melted AC switch (details here) which was caused by squished wires from a thermostat and timing belt job after the car overheated. Everything worked fine. Then the EPC light came there was a loss of power. Took a bit and was able to re-start and get...

    The car I'm working on today is showing the EPC light on the dash and will not crank to start. I had the battery go dead on me, recharged it, car started once after that but now there is no solenoid click and the EPC light came on. I am looking for ideas as to what the problem might be and how...

    Hello all, my passat has been great until this polar vortex hit Chicago at the end of January. I don't know what happened, I went to start it and she wouldn't fire. I thought the battery might be low so I replaced it. No luck. Ended up replacing ESS, spark plugs and coil pack. Still nothing...

    Yesterday I was caught by surprise when tried to start the car (1.8T 2002). It took several attempts to crank the engine but then instantly got the EPC light and high idle. Based on what I read in the forum, the culprit should be a bad crank position sensor. Is that a right assumption? Or should...

    I still can’t get a full understanding of how or why I keep getting engine workshop codes and epc/mil on my 2.0 tsi. I’ve repinned the throttle body per tsb twice and purchased a new throttle body and still get these faults. Since the fuel pressure fault is intermittent and the throttle position...

    Looking at a 2003 Passat GLX Wagon for my 17 yr old. I was originally going to give him my 99 Passat sedan, but I can't find the damn water leak, and the interior is now starting to grow mold. (I dried the car out and then parked it in my storage unit to keep it out of the weather.) I don't want...

    Hey, guys! I drove my new (to me) 03 Passat V6 (manual transmission) to the gas station the other day. I went inside for a coke and when I came out it wouldn't start. And it hasn't started since (got it towed home). I've done a little reading on potential causes, but thought I'd throw it out...

    Hi there, I recently had my 2.0T 09 CCTA passat stall out at idle multiple times with no CEL. I pulled a few codes and booked an appointment at the mechanic. Codes were fuel mix and MAF implausible signal and oxygen (lambda) too rich/intermittent, ECM Power relay opens too. The next day i had...

    Hi I'm in desperate need of guidance. I bought a 2012 vw Passat about 5 months ago with 60k miles and since put on 10,000 miles as I drive a lot. Love the car but a week ago it started spewing power steering fluid everywhere around the reservoir and we concluded that until we could see where it...

    So, after awhile of being without a vehicle (about 7 months) and taking taxis everywhere I go (which could rack up to $40+ a day) a buddy of mine sold me a 2004 Passat 1.8 turbo 5-speed. He told me the previous owner put a new fuel pump on before he bought it. Also told me not to beat on her and...

    I purchased a 2009 Passat less than a month ago. When I did the test drive, the warning "Check engine Service Now" came on and I was unable to accelerate above 20mph. The dealership replaced the throttle body and after about 2 weeks of having the car the same light came on (no trouble...

    Driving home work the other day when I got a message on the DIC to STOP. I pulled over, shut off the engine, popped the hood. Coolant was spraying out from the bottom of the reservoir tank. Apparently the tank had developed a crack in it. Got it towed home. Bought a new tank and installed it...
