Is it normal after I replaced my catalytic convertor about two years ago to have a problem again so soon? Thank you for answering my question.


No this should not have happened again so soon, the catalytic convertor is sensitive to rich fuel mixtures. In the event of an overly rich mixture the catalyst will overheat and melt. I would have the vehicle checked by a good diagnostician, paying attention to the air flow meter, coolant temperature sensor, throttle position sensor and oxygen sensors. All of these have the ability to alter the fuel mixture.

I am getting 2 fault codes on my 2002 Passat they are P1296-manufacturer control fuel air metering and P0411-secondary air injection system incorrect flow. What would be the symptoms and fix for these...


I have a 2000 Passat (1.8T), and I recently had this code (P0411). First thing I did was to clean the mass airflow sensor (MAF) and reset the code by disconnecting the battery. Unfortunately, the code came back. It also came back with P1426. It ended up being the purge valve ($60 at ECSTuning, $140 at the dealer...I went with ECSTuning). Before you drop money on the part, inspect all of the hoses to ensure they are not cracked or torn.

When were the sparkplugs,airfilter changed,is there damp in the coil packs or the seals worn allowing in damp.The maf sensor(mounted in airbox top) may be faulty or the throttle throat may need cleaning.Fuel contamination can play a part, how old is the fuel filter as they should be replaced every 2 years.Check that all vacuum pipes are secure and not cracked as leaks can add to the problem.
