    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...

    My B6 has been giving me troubles. Here is what I have done so far: PCV valve Ignition coils Spark plugs N80 valve Diverter valve Replaced a crap ton of rubber vacuum lines I started with a rough idle, way under powered, drop in mpg's, and had P0455, P0299, P0171, P0100, P0303, p0304. Now...

    I recently purchased a 2005 Passat 4motion GLS wagon 1.8t manual. When I bought the car I knew there was a misfire code for cylinder 3. Just before taking delivery of the car the previous owner had the coil packs replaced under a recall at a Volkswagen dealership. That did not solve the...

    We have a mis-fire condition with cylinder 3. Under light throttle (cruising) the 1.8t purrs as it should. As soon as you try accelerate or pull a hill you get a mis-fire and loss of power. Only code in the computer was P0303. I'm thinking the mis-fire under load "only" is an indication of...

    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...

    Hi All I looked at a 2000 Passat with the 1.8 liter engine. It has almost 200,000 miles and when I had the codes red it gave me the code p0303 and P0411. In Reading a thread on this forum I saw the P0411 code with an engine misfire on cylinder number 4. That thread indicated the cylinder...

    I REALLY hate to sound stupid, but looking from the front at the engine, which is cyl. 1? I'm assuming it's the left side. By the way, '06 Passat 2.0T. I changed the plugs last fall, still could be a plug but I picked up a coil pack for cylinder 3 today. Thanks

    Ive been going through the archives trying to find a solution to my problem, but I can't seem to find one yet. p0321, p0322, p0203, p0303 are the codes that come up from the scanner, as well as a blinking CEL, rough idle, even rougher in gear, and loss of power. Also, if I put it into gear...

    Ok when I started my car when leaving the store I noticed it was idling rough then noticed the CEL blinking. Looked in owners manual and it had stated not to drive it. Brought it home looked up the code and noticed it was #3 cylinder misfire. I swapped out the coil packs from #3 and 4...

    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...

    Hi!, everyone I'm new in these forum and looking for some answers. I own a Passat B6 2006 with a 2.0T AT transmission :thumbup: and lately been having the Check Engine light coming on intermittently:confused:. When I scan the car with a Lounge scanner either I have P0303 misfire in Cylinder 3 or...

    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...

    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...

    Been searching the forum for answers and found a lot of valuable intel, thanks. I'm getting ready to order new coil sticks and spark plugs and just replace all of them at once. Swapped out the number 2 & 3 stick coils and got the code to change to Cyl 2 misfire. My concern is most of the wire...

    A short while back I tore into my '04 V6 GLX. Everything on the top half of the motor was in dyer need of replacement, gaskets, CCT's, timing belt, injectors, PVC system. I have been driving the car for a short while now, approx 600 miles, all of a sudden the CEL goes on while I'm out for lunch...

    Hello everyone! I have searched religiously and have tried just about everything everyone has suggested on here for my problem. I have a 2002 1.8 and it keeps throwing codes P0203 & P0303! The worst is in the morning, it starts pretty rough, will sometimes smooth out and when I drive off the CEL...

    So i've recently had the issue of cylinder 3 misfiring. its the only one, every time i clear the code, P0303 always comes back. I recently put new spark plugs in about 2 weeks ago, no problems until now. I used NGK platinum spark plugs. I figured the best bet of a sure fix would be to just...

    So this is my new set of problems with my Passat. I have cylinder(s) misfiring. Codes came back as P0300: random multiple cylinders misfiring and P0303: cylinder 3 misfiring. Why is this happening? I just replaced the spark plugs a week and a half ago. Could it be the wires? Timing? I just...
