Have a 2001 VW passat, getting heavy on diesel and occasionaly reving up by its self, heard something about a cooling temp. senser might be causing it, then some one else said not

It is a shot in the dark at this point. Your Passat, like mine, is a computer on wheels. Get yourself a VAG scan tool for $50. This will allow you to plug into your car's computer, under the steering wheel, and read its functions. It is easier than Windows for a PC...very user friendly. This will tell you of any issues, even the ones that do not set off the MIL(malfunctionIndicatorLight).
You could have a pre-CAT O2 sensor sening bad readings or a bad ignition coil/wires/or plugs etc...
I do not see how a coolant temp sensor would cause those symtoms, but if the scanner says that it is not getting a signal that it can use from that sensor, then it should be replaced. The computer is smarter than the mechanic, but it can take a mechanic to interpret the codes correctly which is why you post them here. Example, a reading from an O2 sensor may mean that the fuel/air mix is off due to a bad spark plug no burning it's fuel or a dirty air filter causing MAF sensor poblems, when the wrong solution would be to replace the O2 sensor.
VW will charge you over $100 per issue. They will give you the same answer the VAG scanner. You can get OEM VW parts on-line a lot cheaper than the dealer, too.
Good Luck!

Chech Engine light on so I plugged in my OBD tool and it read FUEL TRIM TOO RICH AT IDLE(bank 1).What sensor or part needs to be replaced? The vehicle is a 99 VW Passat 4cyl 1.8 turbo.

i would say the up stream o2 sensor.if you had a decent scanner you could watch the readings and know for sure.this is just and educated guess as i do not know those readings.

04 vw passat,1.8l.changed rear o2 sensor,now engine stumbles,is there a reset sequence?

remove the battery for half an hour, then reconnect it and the ecu should reset. After turning on ignition wait till all clicking and whirring stops before starting it, and check you havent dislodged the airflow meter connector on the airfilter when you did the o2 sensor, as this, or an intake air leak, is more likely to cause a stumble than the o2 sensor.

Abs light stays on and i need to know how to do the clutch on a 2oo1 passat a good friend needs vw help we are a front end shop and there are no good shops to fix these things . also has check engine light...

ABS sensor or sensors have failed , cost about $40 each and need to have a reset done on a VW coded laptop.

Quite a big undertaking putting a clutch in a Passat not to be tackled lightly and without workshop facilities

With 172K miles the whole car must be on the edge of the cliff , think you are due to part company with it or dig very deep into your pockets for a fix
