Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

I have a 99 vw passat with lifters issues...so here's how it went. I was passing a car when my check oil light came on...I stop check the oil, within a few minutes the lifters started clacking, I stopped and added a 1/2 quart...drove it for about 10 miles. I had it towed to my mechanic, he found a crack in the (T) connector,and replaced it...no oil leaks now and all the gasket are intact,including the headgasket. The oil pump is working and oil is getting up to the lifters,however the lifters sound is still horrible.Thank you any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

You should perform an oil pressure test and see if the engine is producing oil pressure within specification. If it is, the lifters may quiet down over time.

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

SOURCE: Oil usage in 2006 passat 2.0 turbo

I had the same problem with my wife's 2006 passat turbo. We lost 2.5 quarts in 3000 miles and the warning light came on. They put us on a 1000 mile oil test and I lost 1.8 more quarts of oil. They finally agreed to replace the rings. Service tech told me that the factory rings are defective, they begin to lead after about 25,000.

SOURCE: I have a 1989 VW Cabrio 1.8L What kind of oil

ok any 10w30 oil should be fine I like ac delco plugs as for the oil light is it full? have you changed the oil filter? might have a clog if the car has not run for a whuile it might be full of gunk/residue from in the motor
usually this is a problem that happens at an idle and goes away when the motor is revved i know you say after 10 min under 1500 rpm but if it happens at higher rpm's you might be doing serious damage to the motor by running it and 1500 is kinda high for it to just be worn main bearings (one supply of oil preasure) the oil pump might be out the motor could be clogged small pathways for the oil return could be gunked up not alowing oil to return to the oilpan/oilpump dont think vacuum is the cause but is the guages even working right? you can get a cluster (3 guages oil temp voltages) fairly cheap 20$ or so try installing these even if just to make sure the guages in it are good I keep one in my toolbox for this hook it up check the readings see if they are safe hook the old stuff back up and put the guages back for next time

SOURCE: 2004 Passat stop engine low

You have low oil pressure ! Do not drive ! Sounds like the engine main bearings and or cam bearing in worn causing low oil pressure ! Make sure your oil is in good condition ! If so then unfortunately your engine is worn and will probably require replacement !

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.

My vw passat 4 motion year 2000, i picked up from shop yesterday ran great, he changed the abs module to pass emissions, it did, came home and had a huge clicking noise, checked oil, was low, put a quart...


Go back and speak with the mechanic. Clicking may be only the lifters. ABS service has nothing to do with the oil system. May be coincidence.Fill oil to Full before driving it and search for leaks.

2003 VW Passat "Oil Press, Turn Off Engine" and "STOP" Light


I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

2003 VW Passat Malfunction Indicator Lamp on


I have a 2003 Passat GLX V6 and i havent been experiencing this issue, however from my experience with VW, the early 2000 models of the passat that have a 1.8T 4 cylinder engine have a major issue with what has been deemed "oil sludge" you have to be careful with this engine oil wise and make sure to get the oil changed every 3,500 - 4,500 miles and make sure you get the full synthetic oils for it and the proper filters :-) the turbo that is on this model heats up the oil to extreme temperatures and if not serviced regularly you will have problems.... i hope this helps! i would have someone check it again for this issue... hopefully you get to it before it becomes costly!
