Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
The Emission Workshop warning has come on.
what is it and what should I do?
I had the same problem, took it to the garage and they plugged it in to the diagnostic computer. I had just had alot of work done to it and there were about 8 different problem codes that came up on the computer. The mechanic cleared out all the problems, had me drive the car for a day or so until the light came back on. He hooked up my baby to the computer again and found only one problem. The O2 sensor was bad. The part cost about $200 from VW and $100 labor. Light has been off since. Being that the light could mean many things you definitely need to have it hooked up to a computer. If there are many alerts on the computer i would suggest doing what my mechanic did so that you're not spending money on someone fishing for the ultimate cause. Hope this helps!

You need the OBD codes checked to be certain of the problem. If engine
is running ok with the light on, it may well be an oxygen sensor
