She stopped at a random garage and they said it was 'probably an air leak' which I took to mean was a vacuum leak...

    I bought a 2001 1.8t Passat Wagon three weeks ago (66k miles). Last week the Check Engine Light came on, followed by the Emissions Workshop! message. It was on for a day, and then went away. It came back on a day later, so I took it to AutoZone and they diagnosed it with Code P0171 (fuel...

    I've got a 2002 Passat GLX. The problem im having is with the rear parking lights. When the headlight switch is in the "ON" position the rear parking lights sometimes wont work, or they'll work for a while then all the parking lights in the rear go out. The brake lights will continue to work...

    My 99 1.8T with 190,000km started to sputter and idle rough at certain times. i.e. at stop light, etc. The timing belt was done at 160,000 km and only in the last week has this been a new issue. Sometimes I can feel the throttle pedal move on it's own as if trying to compensate for lack of fuel...

    Hi there, I just replaced the TB on my 75k 02 1.8T AWM engine and, being a cheapo, I did not replace the WP at the same time. Now I have a squeaking noise coming from the accessory belt tensioner area. Could it be the WP that I did not replace? The sound is hard at times especially upon starting...

This new thing is that every now and then it will crank for a good 10 - 12 seconds before it will start...We took it to where we bought it and...
