    I've lined up all marks and have had the valve covers off to verify timing between the cams by counting the links. EVERYthing was checked and rechecked several times before starting. The car runs but badly with misfire codes on cylinder 1/3/4/6. But nothing on 2/5. After it was running, I set...

    2003 Passat 1.8T (AWM) 5spd. Manual 177,000 miles. I just bought the car, so I have no prior knowledge of its mechanical history. It starts up and will run "very rough and will only barely idle" if I hold accelerator down a bit but slowly dies when accelerator is released. It will rev up and...

And at the same time, I feel we (my wife and I work on the car together) know and have learned a lot about the...

    i have an 03 passat 1.8t with 108k miles on it. After a road trip, i noticed that the car had a hesitation like a misfire at idle sometimes. It only happens after the first 5 miles or so, and it is only noticable at idle wether in park or drive. When i checked the CEL first, it came up with my...
