Check the basic. First check the air filter clean or replace if necessary. The second problem with 96 VW passat is MAF gets oiled (Mass Air Flow) When this happens fuel trim becomes lean you.Hard starting and lack of power. You basically will have remove the mass air flow and use brake cleaner or carb cleaner or even mass air flow cleaner. With the air flow disconnected clean the inner element and assemble when dry

SOURCE: Air-conditioning not icy cold inside my VW Passat TDI 1996

chances are if you system was serviced by modern equipment then they would have pulled a vacuum before recharging .. that would eliminate moisture in the system .. the evaporator is inside your heater box .. you cant see it .. the condenser is the radiator like device in front of your engine cooling radiator ..

if the system is changed properly and still does not work or works intermittantly . then there is a good chance that the air conditioner clutch electronic module is bad .. thats a relay like device located on the drivers side behind the dash .. you have to snap off the dash side panel .. its normally hidden by the door .. inside that is the fuse panel and behind that is the relays/electronic modules .. the one that operates the air conditioner clutch is marked 384 .. there are other possibilities depending on your a more precise description of the problem ..

SOURCE: i have no power when

It sounds like you need a tune-up and a battery. A tune up should stop the car from sputtering and a new battery should give the car the cranking amps it needs to start in the cold temperatures.

Engine light flashes when going up hill.


sometimes when you are going up hill your check engine light or your oil light will come on because all of the oil is at the back of your oil pan.
