Passat emission garage

i had the same problem with my '00 jetta. I believe it has to do with the o2 sensors, but, there are many factors that come into play when it comes to this problem. running rich/lean, bad o2 sensors, cracks in the exhaust. what fixed my problem was the engine temp sensor, a little bit away from exhaust but vw likes their systems closely intergrated. check that out first before diving into the more expensive and bigger parts. good luck, and be patient.

Car cuts of when stopped

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

I own a Honda CRV Model 2001 automatic transmission. My problem is when the workshop replaced the timing belt due to cut off the engine sounds erratic and the engine is giving more vibration observed...

.these engines need a special tool to remove the bottom pulley and lock it in place ,sounds like they made a boo boo and clouted all the valves and possibly broke the cam bearing caps ,unless this happened when timing belt cut off?? so its difficult to advise unless i know exactly what happened

CErr Displayed on dash

For the mileage display, it's probably just a service reminder. Does your mileage come up when you press the button once? Or try resetting by holding the button in for a few seconds. The cutting out could be time for a tune up, adjustment of your idle speed, new fuel filter, or leaking vacumm hoses. Those are the easiest places to start. Could also be low fuel pressure or emission system problems, but hopefully you won't have to go there. If check engine light isn't on, it probably isn't emissions.
