    03 v6 4motion wagon, surging ~100rpm when the car is under 2000rpm, read lots of posts about what could cause it, including the connectors for the TCM, but all the photos are broken links and I'm not sure where to look, or what other options to try if that doesn't fix the issue. I don't suspect...

    Hello, my Passat B7 2.0 TDI 140 hp doesn't go beyond 2500 at full acceleration in neutral gear. Can anyone confirm if this is normal?

    I've recently been experiencing surging of about 100 rpms ONLY when under light acceleration between 1200 and 1800 rpm. Car accelerates from a stop fine, accelerates fine above 2000 rpm, and cruises fine at speed where rpms are above 2000. As others have experienced, this only happens once the...

    '00 Passat 4Mo wagon, 2.8L, ATQ, 134 kmi During routine braking, I notice when the tach drops to ~900 RPM it momentarily bumps up to 1000, then it smoothly drops to ~630 and quickly bumps up to 680, where it remains. The warm idle speed is 680, which is within spec for the 4Mo. I don't feel...

    I have a 2003 4Mo wagon with 30V 2.8L AT, about 205k miles. For over a year it has had a slight shudder in 1st gear at the beginning of acceleration under medium or greater throttle. It only does if from idle to maybe 2-3000 rpm. Light throttle, no shudder. Now I notice it a little in 2nd...

Was running fine then over the last three days it started to stumble between 1500 and 3000 RPM. In 5th gear it shakes the car like crazy if you're driving slow. NO CEL. I have...

    My 1999 Passat , 1.8t, with many new pieces and parts has only one issue left.....intermittent RPM dives. So here is the symptom. At any time the car will have RPM dives and rises almost as if a vacuum leak is present. I can turn the car off, start it back, and it is immediately back to normal...

    I have a B5 Passat, 1997 1.6 Petrol to be exact. The issue i'm having is that the RPM indicator doesn't show the actual RPM of the car. When the car is off the indicator will go below quite below 0, at about exactly straight position. When the car is Idle the RPMs go to exactly 0 and the car...

What i mean by that is that it doesnt accelerate good and in a steepy road it will accelerate very slowly on 3rd...
