SOURCE: 1999 VW Passat low idle

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

SOURCE: vw passat 1.8t battery problem?

Hi

Either your battery has just given up the ghost,........ Is it the original, and now 10 yrs old ?
Or your Alternator is not charging enough, to replenish what is used.

Have battery tested first, if OK, then the alternator belt tension, and alternator for correct output charging rate.

If all these shows no faults, your starter is then suspect.

Good Luck !

A FixYa would be nice thanks !....John.

SOURCE: 99 vw passat, when running, MIL lite, on car vibrates- shakes

no flashing light and rough shaking will be part of spark plug but also a very bad miss fire. I am going to guess that your engine is a 1.8t if so you have 4 coils that sit on top of your spark plugs that most likely are arcing you will need to figure out which coil is failing or you can save yourself the trouble and replace all 4 and the spark plugs. before you do that though check your wireing going to your coils look for broken wires or the ground that is next to the #1 coil that is the one closest to the front of the motor and you. hope that helps. that will be the start to fixing your issue also when you pull out the spark plug look down the hole first and make sure that there is not oil in the bottom of the hole if that is the case you will need a valve cover gasket as well. good luck hope that helps

Car starts then shut it off and wont start again rite away? Heater contrals flash when wont start. wat could that bee?


My Passat would run, then not start for a while, then run fine again. I told the mechanic it acted like old carburetor engines would when they flooded. Took him 3 days to find the problem. The oil pressure regulator was bad, making the pressure to high, causing the lifters to stay open. Had to change the oil pump and fixed the problem. This is a known problem with VW's. ONLY RUN THE RECCOMENDED SYNTH OIL IN THE CAR it makes all the difference
