    Hey everyone, I recently bought a 2002 Passat GLX 4motion with 140k km/85k miles on it knowing its secondary air pump was on its way out (old owner described it as doing the characteristic deafening vacuum sound last winter). I've had the car for about a month and just got around to buying...

    hey y'all, i just picked up a 2001.5 passat 1.8 5 speed that developed a misfire while driving home immediately after buying it, I changed all 4 plugs and coils and the misfire went away. I reset the CEL by disconnecting the battery and drove for about a week before it came back on with the...

    It is simple for those, who know. It may be helpful for everybody else. Video's link below. My car gave very good example of what I was talking in my videos about money. I would say it is MANDATORY to watch them in order to save hundreds and thousands of dollars(Euros, Rubles, Dinars, Pounds...

    My son has a 2001 V6 with following codes: P0607/P0300/P0303/P0305. At cold idle CEL comes on and it hesitates and almost dies but doesn't. After a while it goes away. It appears that there is some oil on the plugs and wires. Not sure how/why there is oil in there, we did have the valve cover...

    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...

    I guess this must be a jackpot of some sort? I have a 03 GLX 2.8 v6 ATQ 167500 miles and she's been running fine. Replaced plugs and coil about 20k ago. Driving home to Athens, Ga from Raleigh tonight my MIL light came on and I checked it with a cheap scanner I keep in the glove box. This...

    Hi everyone. I have a 2003 passat 1.8t. I was driving home last night and the car was running fine at speed, but when I came to a stop the car was idling a little high, and when the idle returned to normal after a about 10 sec, the car began to misfire and the CEL began to flash. I was in my...

    A few months back the engine light came on and we would notice a "shuttering" with acceleration at times. The code stated it was a cylinder 1 misfire. We went ahead and replaced the spark plugs, since we already had them to replace anyway and hoped that would solve the problem. Light was reset...

    I have a 2000 Passat Wagon V6, I have the CEL light on and it reads the codes mentioned. The strange thing is that the engine is smooth, runs like new! The only problem I have tracked is mileage, I am getting about 240 miles a tank! YIKES! The P0300. 04, 05: I feel nothing, the engine is...

    So today I started my car and it idled very roughly and the cel was blinking so I turned the car off right away. Later I started it and it had a steady cel so I pulled up the codes and got p0300, p0303, p0305. I am guessing this is a spark plug issue since the car idles roughly right? I know...

Replaced one vacuum hose and looking into the others. Have a question. Does anyone have a OBDII scanner that can read the long term fuel trim...
