Trouble code p000a on 06 vw passat. can i drive with this code or will it cause more damage to the car


Cam shaft positioner malfunction. You can drive it. Just have bad gas mileage. Probably run rough to. If it starts making a bunch of chattering noise, time to have it fixed. I wouldn't take it on any long trips either.

Trouble starting keeps running after turning it off


If it is chugging and running rough after you turn the key off, it may be "dieseling" which is caused by carbon buildup in the cylinders and the idle speed being higher than spec. Pulling the coil wire from the coil and the engine continues to run is a good example.

2002 volkswagen passat v6 4motion epc light came on when i turn car off then start again the Epc light goes off, then it cam on 20 later.


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.

I'm assuming you're running a manual transmission. In this case, I'd switch to a lower viscosity transmission fluid. It may make the difference between in gear and waiting for the gates to "open."

2004 VW Passat just over 60K miles. Car has run great until this morning where the entire electrical systems starting acting weird. Wouldn't turn over and then started to. Waited a second tried it...


Could be a faulty fuel pump, they are notorious for acting unpredictibly when they start to go bad. My bet is in a week it won't start at all. Try banging on the fuel tank the next time it won't start, if that fixes it it is prbably a fuel pump.

Running you fuel pump until its at E is hard/bad on your fuel pump since gasoline is the fuel pumps lubrication.

Go to a local starter shop and by a brush and cap for this starter I had the same problem with a lawn mower same consept after the brushes get wore out the motor will be slow to start. The springs or the brushes are wore out. Very simple and cost effective rather than buying a new starter down the road.
