Hi,

I was idling when my '99 passat 1.8T started shaking and the CEL was flashing. I was able to limp it a quarter mile home, but it was very weak and when I got out of the car, there was a strong burning smell. I have checked the engine codes and they were:

Address 01: Engine Labels: 058-907-55x-AEBN.lbl

Part No: 8D0 907 557 P

Component: 1.8L R4/5VT MOTR HS D07

Coding: 06001

Shop #: WSC 08316

VCID: 3D71D4B437425BC9456-4AE8



5 Faults Found:

17544 - Fuel Trim: Bank 1 (Add)

P1136 - 35-10 - System too Lean - Intermittent

16684 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

P0300 - 35-00 -

16686 - Cylinder 2

P0302 - 35-00 - Misfire Detected

16684 - Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected

P0300 - 35-00 -

16686 - Cylinder 2

P0302 - 35-00 - Misfire Detected

Readiness: 0000 0000



I'm not sure what to do. I've tried replacing spark plugs and the ignition coil for cylinder 2, but It hasn't helped. Any ideas?

Thanks for the replies.

Are the fuel filter, or vacuum lines still likely even though the failure is always on cylinder 2? Would they not affect all cylindars?

I've used the vagcom multiple times and it's always that cylindar. I'm thinking it might be the ICM too, but I'm going to try using a multimeter and spark tester to rule out some other issues before I spend money on an ICM.

If it is always #2 it's unlikely it's fuel or vacuum related.

Try swapping the coils and see if the misfire follows. Also give the plug a look see.

If this doesn't help I might try swapping injectors to see if the #2 is clogged or faulty.

Unless you have multiple issues.

The burning smell I would say is oil leaks from the valve cover or related CCT seals.
