    Purchased a 2009 Passat Komfort 2.0T FSI. The car has 68K miles on it and is in really good conditions. After driving it for a few weeks I had a check engine light come on. Hooked up the Carista I have for my VW and is stated that I had random cylinder misfires on 1 and 2. Took the first step...

    Okay- my daughter isn't shuddering and sputtering, her TSI is. It seem to happen irregularly. She took it to the dealership which told her she should run premium gas in it and charged her $300 for a fuel injector cleaning (and $50 to put in a half quart of oil). Problem was gone for a couple...

    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...

    Hi... I have 2004 Passat V6, runs rough. CEL is on, code read is P0301. Inspected the spark plugs on passenger side and found oil in the spark plug 2 & 3 but spark plug 1 is dry and looks good. I found on the other threads in this forum the oil in the spark plug well will cause misfire. Is...

    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, I have a 2003 Passat with the v6 engine. The car has been riding very rough for the past couple of weeks. My initial thought was that it is a transmission issue because although the car shifts normally from a standing start, if I let off the gas while driving and then ease on the gas...

    I'm getting P0300 random/multiple cylinder misfires and P0301, P0302, P0303 cylinder misfires on 1, 2, & 3. The shop thinks its definitely the coil packs and or spark plugs. I had the coil packs and spark plugs changed maybe 3-4 years back but the car's also been minimally driven (~5000 miles...

    solved!! Missfire on cylinder 1? Plug is white, the rest look normal. Probable causes? Keep pulling a 0411also, but I believe the air pump is dead. Thanks for any help.

    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2008 VW Passat 2.0T 6-speed manual with 107,000 miles on the odometer. Soon after the purchase, the check engine light came on and I noticed a miss on hard acceleration. I had the check engine codes checked out and they were P0011 and P0304. I thought that maybe...

    I have a very small issue but I'd like to get it taken care of. Earlier this year, I replaced the heads on my B5.5 V6. It's been running fine, but occasionally I get slight symptoms, plus an intermittent CEL. CODES: The CEL will go on if I drive it a lot in one day. Most days won't come on...

    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...

    108k miles or so; still using original coils; cam adjuster replaced under warranty at roughly 80k miles; timing belt and related parts replaced at about 90k while I had half the work done for unrelated reasons. Driving home last night when the engine began to misfire, couldn't exceed 40mph or...

    Have a pending P0171. Have replaced the MAF sensor and it fixed the rough idle problem. Would vary from 700 to around 1200 rpm. Still have pending P0171. 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...

    2003 V6 Passat. Replaced both cam position sensors, with no improvement. Car runs very rough. Cannot even drive it. Maybe the bank 1 cam chain tensioner is going, which allowed the cam chain to slip? Or maybe the timing belt tensioner is going, which allowed the timing belt to slip? The...

    Long story short, the mechanic just told me I have to replace my valve cover gaskets again here in December 2011 after having the same thing done elsewhere in November 2009. Two years? This can't be right. Could something else be wrong, that they're misdiagnosing? Long story long, I have a 2000...
