P1300 Misfire Detected, Fuel Level Too LowIf the low fuel level is not the case check for a dirty heat sink for the ingintion/igniter module or any other source of a misfire, if you have run out of gas this could cause the code as well

I own an 1999 VW passat. I noticed that the passenger fan is not working? where do i locate the fan temperature sensor? Can I test the fan to make sure it's working?

I believe the other fan comes on when the A/C is running. I would run the engine and turn on the A/C and see if both fans work. You can check the plug going into the fan to check for power with a test light.

Shaking engine, weak power, blinking check engine light

You have a bad coil pack, they usually crack from age and heat. It's best to replace them all. Check for a VW recall on this item.

You can try to reset the throttle body by opening the hood and drivers door then turning your key to the accessory position. You will hear the throttle body whir and click. It may take up to two minutes. Afterward, the car will relearn your habit of driving and adjust accordingly.
