This is when an engine typically misses, there is allot fo load on it, have the spark plug wires checked for any burn marks where they go over the spark plug.

I just purchased a 1999 VW Passat and when I start to drive the car acts like a manual and it is an automatic. Now it has on the gears D,4,3 & 2 what is that about?


you have effectively got two gearboxes in the car.1is a normal auto (D) ON THE FLOOR then you have + and - for the "manual" take your pick....now here is the clever part,if you put the car in auto "D"and dont touch the gas the car will accelerate to about 35 on the flat.and will change as per a normal auto,if then when you stop you put 1/3rd gas pedal and hold that position it will go right upto about 65,stop then puit your foot right to the floor (kickdown)and the car will fly...stop...you have just reset the gearbox..try and keep to 1/3rd gas for about 25miles and you will see a big difference in gear changes/revs (smoother)but boring....

Hesitation on acceleration


Try giving it a tune up. It could be a faulty plug wire, spark plug, clogged air filter or clogged fuel filter.
Other possibities could include bad gasoline or a clogged fuel injector. If the tune up doesn't try adding fuel injector cleaner and octane boost to the gas.

p1545 is a throttle control malfuction code

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.

Hesitation on acceleration engine runs fine otherwise


My 99 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro was havinga problem starting at times. It would idle poor upon start and then it would come up in rpm where it should be. I had hesitation from a start and after coasting for more than 5-8 seconds, the car would shake violently upon acceleration at about 1/3 throttle. I cleaned the Mass Air Flow Sensor. This helped but did not solve all my problems. I then replaced the Mass Air Flor Sensor. Little to no change there ($108.00). Lastly, I replaced the spark plugs. I bought Bosch plugs ($4.82 ea.). This got rid of all the symptoms. I had bad lugs and possibily a dirty MAF!

New battery in 03 VW Passat, engine turns but will not start.


Possible flooding, cold weather can freez open injectors causing them to leak into the cylinders. Press the gass pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine for no more than 60 seconds. The cylinders will clear themselves allowing proper mix of air/fuel and should start easy. If that does not solve please specify if the engine is 1.8l or 2.8l.
