Question about 2004 Volkswagen Passat

Open Question

My 2004 VW V6 Passat 2.8l is mis-firing

I have just changed my ignition coil pack and I still have the same problem, engine mis-firing. I have also changed the spark plugs. Do I need to reset the fault codes or reset the computer?

Let them see the car.

Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.

It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.

You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak

SOURCE: Check engine light flashes sometimes and runs rough

A flashing check engine light is a critical indicator. That usually means that something went wrong that will damage the emission control system... and that is usually an ignition issue. First off, the OEM plug your car calls for is an NGK irridium... NOT BOSCH and not anything with more than 1 prong. Those NGKs are like 2 bucks and they are the proper plug. Make sure you have these plugs and make sure they are gapped to .028. Next, my suggestion is put all the new stuff on again. Drive it to autozone and have them delete all the codes. Drive it around until the check engine light comes on again, then immediately go back and read the codes. The ECU is smart enough to know which cylinder is misfiring. On these cars, I think they have three banks of two... meaning one "coil" inside the coil pack operates two of the cylinders. So if you get multiple misfires, it's the coil. If you get one misfire it's probably an individual plug wire or plug. Good luck.

Firing order jeep Cherokee 2004 3.7 l v6


are you doing spark or timing a cam? what? what is JOB?
it dont matter, the engine, ecu does that, (magic)
but if it has a coil pack like my 3.8 then the coil pack must
be wire right and is marked. clearly on the pack.
they have USA jeeps and Export. country never stated here. sad huh?
and use differnent spark systems (3 types used, but 2 common)
per below.

v6.
is this not a Cheokee? the non Grand ended in 2004. so...
ill go with GC 2005, v6 3.7L
the v6 began in 2005, not 2004, but, maybe yours is the first./

the 3.7 has coil over plug, spark, 6 coils.
and the harness is fixed to those coil so all firing order are
dictated in the ECU/PCM (hard coded)

VIN engine code, K. (not stated)

and already asked, and answered .

my 3.8 (2004) jeep.
is 1,2,3,4,5,6
and is like this.

mine uses wasted spark system.

http://www.fixkick.com/look/odds-ends/jeep/2008-JK/slideshow/firing-order.JPG


so post VIN, or tell what engine is really there.
and the true year. or build date (sticker)

so my answer is.. 2005 GC, 3.7L V6, not I-6
it has 6 cops, "coil over plugs" 6 induction coils
and runs same firing order, as the old I6 did.
1-5-3-6-2-4
but the I6 4.0liter runs a coil pack and is quite different.
these;

times 6
all laced in, hard.

Dose the coils on the passat differ from the coils on the golfs. What are the specifications on the coils of the passat 1.8 T 2002 MODEL


the passat uses coil packs one for each cylinder and the 2002 golf uses one coil pack that fires all cylinder and also not the same engine in 2002. now the 2000 vw golf with the 1.8 engine uses the same coils,so if its a 2000 vw golf with a 1.8 engine then yes you can use them they are exactly the same, hope this helps.

2004 vw passet 1.9 turnsover but wont start


VW are bad about moisture getting within the coil and other components that fire the engine. It should still start even with a bad plug or wire, it would run like ****, so it makes me think the coil isn't firing through the plug wires. Get the coil checked out. Hopefully the fuel pump hasn't went out.

I have a 1999 VW Passat 1.8l turbo. It has codes P0300 and others


They may not be firing. I would check spark from coils. You may have a bad coil pack. Do check for any vacuum lines. You can go to autzone.com and register for full free online repair manual

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple
