SOURCE: 1997 VW Passat trouble code

Hi ejj509,

Both my 97 Passat and my wife's 99 Passat were throwing the same OBD codes you listed.

Both VW's had the same problem. There is no "quick" solution for the problem. I can tell you what I found, what I had to do and how I repaired both vehicles so they no longer throw this OBD error code.

I removed the black plastivc AIR pump and found that three of the six aluminum rivets which hold the AIR pump impeller housing together had rotted off so the case was leaking air. I went to a hardware store with one of the aluminum rivets I had removed from the AIR pump and bought six brass machine screws and brass nuts. I gouged the aluminum rivets out and replaced them with the brass machine screws.

After I had replaced the AIR pump in the VW, I cleared the codes and ran the diagnostics again.
It still threw the same codes!!!

Next, I removed the plastic top engine cover from the VW engine (VR6) and located the many air solenoids hidden under the cover. I went to a local NAPA shop and purchased an eight foot length of their smallest gauge neoprene gas line (1/8 inch ID).

I carefully removed each piece of rotted VW vacuum line from the air solenoids and replaced each rotted section with lengths of the new neoprene gas line. I had to follow out each of the old vacuum lines and replace them because they were badly deteriorated. This took about five hours to accomplish.

I replaced the plastic engine cover and connected up my cable from my laptop to the VW's computer port, cleared all of the codes and ran a new scan. This time the scan was clear! Woo Hoo! Apparently, the problem was both the leaking AIR pump and faulty, deteriorated (cheap) Volkswagen vacuum lines.

It was well worth the effort. My driveway has now become a bonafied VW repair shoppe.

SOURCE: VW passat coolant warning light on

There's a level sensor plugged into the bottom of the coolant reservoir. Unplug it and clean the contacts with electrical contact cleaner. If that doesn't do the trick, replace the sensor.

Passat emission garage


i had the same problem with my '00 jetta. I believe it has to do with the o2 sensors, but, there are many factors that come into play when it comes to this problem. running rich/lean, bad o2 sensors, cracks in the exhaust. what fixed my problem was the engine temp sensor, a little bit away from exhaust but vw likes their systems closely intergrated. check that out first before diving into the more expensive and bigger parts. good luck, and be patient.

Where is the sender unit located for the temperture sensor on the 2004 passat?


The temp sending unit should be either in the head , the water housing, or the radiator. On a VW it is usually in the head. I hope this helped.

2004 vw passat check engine light .


This car has 2 separate temp sensors, 1 for the computer and 1for the gauge, you need to be sure the engine is not overheating first, but most likely it's a bad coolant temp sensor causing a false reading..

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!
