First make sure you do a basic tune-up on the car i.e. replacing spark plug wires, spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor button, etc. Secondly, the plugs are probably just wet from fuel from not starting. The low oil pressure light coming on is normal when trying to start the car. Make sure to check for codes too and don't press the accelerator when starting the car, otherwise it will flood the engine.

Falcon is not firing on no.1


Assuming it is getting fuel to the cylinder, and the ignition timing is correct.....

1. Check for spark. (could be a bad spark plug). I have seen plugs that will fire outside of the cylinder, but not when installed. check carefully.
2. If there is spark, get a compression tester. remove the spark plug, replace with the tester, crank the engine a few revolutions. record the reading.
3. Remove the tester and squirt some oil into the cylinder, replace tester and crank engine again - record the result.
4. If step one reads zero...you have a burned exhaust valve or a hole in the piston, unless it is a blown head gasket which usually means there is water in the oil or visa versa. Or...if the head gasket is blown between cylinders, (no oil in water or water in the oil), then you need to do step 1 on the cylinder next to the bad cylinder. It should have a low or zero reading also.
5.If step 1 is a low reading (not zero) and step 2 INCREASES the reading. This means the rings for that cylinder are worn out and the engine should be overhauled.
6. If step 2 does not increase the reading of step 1 and it remains low (not zero), this indicates a leaking or partially burned exhaust valve.

could be time for a tune up also check the spark plug holes for oil if the valve cover gasket are leaking into there can also have a bad coil if the check engine light is on have it scanned at a auto parts store (most do it for free)the code can lead you to the bad cylinder exp code p0301 is cylinder number one p0306 is cylinder number six and the same for p0302-p035

2001 passat has loss of power, shaking and check engine light flashing


i had this problem on my 2002 passat. it was the ignition coils. first set were replaced in 2002 as a vw recall. second set (at 122K miles) were relatively inexpensive to fix. just one failed but it made the engine run really rough - my mechanic was able to move it from one cylinder to the next to get the problem to repeat.

Coolant leaking vw Passat 1.6 1999 heat on with fan, window fogs.


is the floor board on passenger side wet???If yes it's the heater core, which should be accessible by removing the glove box. Did u check the oil, to see if it 's milky??? some times on the vw of any kind, they spring a slow leak on the head gasket which could cause the abnormal starting in the morning. Which then, as the engine warms up causes the gasket to swell up and seal itself untill the engine cools completely off again. Eventually the gasket will completely fail and u'll have to bring it to a shop or get a repair manual to replace the head gasket.

New battery in 03 VW Passat, engine turns but will not start.


Possible flooding, cold weather can freez open injectors causing them to leak into the cylinders. Press the gass pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine for no more than 60 seconds. The cylinders will clear themselves allowing proper mix of air/fuel and should start easy. If that does not solve please specify if the engine is 1.8l or 2.8l.
