    Hi I have a 2005 1.8T GLS Wagon that just stopped running yesterday. My wife and I are moving about 2 hours away and were driving to a storage unit. I had noticed it started having trouble accelerating about half an hour before we arrived, and when I put it in park at the storage unit the...

    Hi guys, I have a Passat break TDI 140 year 2006. Initially I had the orange engine light on and I wanted to remove it without diag by disconnecting the battery. Unfortunately now my car doesn't start anymore. I push the key, the engine starts but is cut off after 2 seconds. I finally did a...

    New to this site. Don't know very much about this car I bought for my son. 1999 VW Passat. Engine is getting very hot and oil light keeps coming on. Not leaking oil and level seems to be fine. Any help with this would be great.

    About 6 weeks ago our Passat just died while driving. Had it towed and it was a bad ignition relay. Ever since the switch was replaced the cruise control will not hold the speed. It surges up and down 5mph and then quits. Now yesterday my son drove it to gas station and filled up and when he...

    A question for those of you with mechanical oil pressure guages. Just wondering if this is normal - oil pressure lags the engine start by a full 2 seconds when cold, when warm the pressure goes up immediately. I definitely get cam chain tensioner rattling on those cold starts. Vid 1: warm...

    Hi guys After finding I needed a new fuel pump in my 2002 1.8T AWT passat (car died halfway between work and home!), I replaced the pump and the car started straight away after, but after a few seconds it sputters out. The pump is working and the fuel rail has pressure, Now the car won't...

    95 3A5 Passat 1.8 petrol, manual, no aircon. Usually everything is fine but every now and then when I start the engine, it idles for 2-3 seconds then stalls. When it happens, it takes any number of start repeats from 3 to 8 or so and eventually it will keep idling and then everything is fine...

    Usually start my car and let it warm up a minute on a cold start...this morning I was running a little late for work...started the car, put it in reverse and backed of the drive way....CEL came on and blinked about 5 times then stopped. Does this happen on cold starts if you start the car and...

    Starts but dies after a couple seconds. It starts repeatedly but will not idle. Revving it doesn't really help. I've looked into it a little and it looks like it's fuel filter/pump etc. or something. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

    The title said it all. Here's a quick 0-60 mph video of my '02, 1.8T, automatic, FWD, commuter in action. It appears to me that it's reaching 60 mph in 6 seconds. Not breaking any records, but definitely getting out of its own way. :thumbup:

    Acceleration cuts out for 3 seconds and resumes, randomly - FIXED? I doubt this will apply to many people, but it seems my problem was the fuel cap my friend had replaced the original with (when he lost it), turns out you need a breathable/ventilated fuel cap (I got an official one from...

    I have a 2001 1.8 passat with an automatic transmission. When I put the car in reverse, it takes a few seconds for it to engage. I do not have any problems with all the other gears. Anyone else familiar with this problem?

    After a heavy rain, my TDI cranked but wouldn't start. I cleared the drain by the ECM which had a few leaves. I couldn't tell if the water built up around the ECM. In any event, it sat for 3 days with sun and then started but stalled after 1 to 2 seconds. It fires for about 2 or 3 engine...
