    i had the same problem and fault codes.expecting an exspensive fix i had a diesel specialist look at it for me .turned out to be a blocked air filter of all things ,try driving with the filter removed and see if this makes any difference.

Air filters cost less than 10 euro, replace them every 10,000 miles and you will never have a problem. Also if you use a fuel additive such as "DIPTANE" you will clean up on emmissions, and the environment, and fuel bills. another cheap fix I had from driving vw's was, GET A TOYOTA. CHEAP AS CHIPS. also just as reliable, without as much hassle. VW like to be AUDI and charge you more than MERCEDES

Vw passat estate 1.9 tdi 115bhp 85kw 2000. Has Fault code : 17965.


It's a turbo problem of sorts. Have a look on the following link which will give you access to more information:

passat eror code 17965 Google Search

To be quite honest, there's nobody on Fixya who will be able to give you a definitive answer. Turbos can suffer from a number of faults and those faults can sometimes be quite difficult to track down.

Here's a link to Ebay:

It may be worth your while actually contacting a turbo specialist and asking their opinion. What you don't want to do is fit part after part in hope of curing the problem. Your first course of action should be to ask a turbo specialist or good workshop. Yes, it may mean paying for somebody to check things out for you, but it really does save money and bother in the long run.

My 2006 2.0 tdi passat keeps going in limp mode and saying emissions workshop. Can anybody help


hi mate, my 55 plate passat did the same before major problems happened. first turbo went then the oil pressure light came on and the car went into limp mode. before its too late for you and a costly bill can you do the following.
check if your car has a recall for the injector problems which vw are replacing under warenty.
second thing the guy who repaired my turbo told me that these cares have a major fault which caused the turbo to go. the fault is the oil pump failure you must adress this issue as you can get a lot of info on the discussion forms.
my car started with the same problem as you have described the pd engines have a design fault with the oil pump and shaft. this is common causing your turbo to go then the car will start showing oil pressure low please stop engine. educate your self via the forms and act quickly befor you end up with massive bills.
i hope this has helped. trust me vw know about this design fault.you need to change your chain driven oil pump to the new gear driven system which vw have modified. all vag cars have the same problems be it audi skoda vw . my car had the same problem as you have said .started off with emissions then turbo failed thats when i started to investigate this problem . the pd engines was designed by some rookie at vw.

I would assume some of the emission component failed and you have to take it to a workshop.

Emissions workshop light on, no apparent problem?


99% of the time when the emission warning light is turned on there is no symptom u can feel, however there is a fault present present in the memory of the powertrain control module (known as the PCM), have the cars OBD2 electronic engine control system tested to find out what the fault code is, there are over 200 poss codes.

VW Passat 2001: Exhaust emission warning lamp flashing. Manual says 'blinks if the catalyst can be damaged by misfires'. Any suggestions?


"Check engine light" EMISSIONS WORKSHOP! Do you want to shut it off??? After reading all of the negative comments and how much money Passat owners have spent due to this manufacturer's problem, I am going to save the day and save you $$$ by showing you how to "reset" the diagnostic computer which makes the "emissions workshop-check engine light come on! (This is the same thing the VW dealer will charge you hundreds of dollars to do.) To turn off the "Check Engine" (Emissions Workshop) light, simply follow these 5 basic steps:
1. Pop open the hood.
2. Insert the key in the ignition and turn without starting the engine until all of the dash indicators light and warning tones sound.
3. With the key still in the ignition, use a 10mm wrench or socket to loosen and completely disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery. Wait about 60 seconds before reconnecting.
4. Re-connect and tighten the negative (-) cable to the battery and close the hood.
5. Start the engine. THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT HAS GONE OUT!
If the light stays on, then there really is a problem. If it has turned off, be glad, but don't be surprised to see it come on again in a few weeks. If it comes on again, simply follow steps 1-5. Remember... This quick repair is for those who just can't stand looking at this light or afford to visit VW every time this light comes on. If you feel the need to service the vehicle, service the vehicle. I hope this has made your "NIGHTMARE" a little easier!!!

Mk5 golf emission workshop


Your EGR Valve is clogged and has to be changed. I have tried removing, cleaning and replacing it, this only lasts from one hour to one week.

The fault code 'P3103 V157 - Intake Manifold Flap' comes up on the diagnostics, and if you look in your fuse box (next to the battery) you will see a blown 10amp fuse. This is a sure sign that your EGR (or Intake Manifold Flap) is stuck.

This unit costs about £235 - £250.
Good luck mate

Emissions Workshop on display


I had this problem myself and was told it could be one of 3 things

1. ignition coils are on their last legs and would need replacing (there are 4 of them in a VW golf)

2. The throttle housing is knackered and needs replacing as it has caused the motor that powers the accelerator to stop working and

3. The catalytic converter has an excess of carbon stored within it and has caused a defect.

All 3 of these jobs are notoriously expensive. Much to the delight of whoever it is you have gone to see....
