Re: need to locate fuel filter on 2004 volkswagen passat
I have a 04 vw passat also. i dont know if it makes a difference for location of the fuel pump that mine is the 1.8T, however, my mechanic removed the old and replaced my fuel pump through a door in the trunk on the right side. easier than having to get under the car if you happen to also have that option. worth a try to look.

I bet it's the gas. After some time the gas will no longer be volatile enough to start the car. Try draining all the fuel and putting in some fresh gas. Remember, when you try to start it again you'll need to get the new gas through the pump and lines before it will start. Also, check the condition of the injectors. Old gas can start to break down and build up a film that could be on your injectors (or clog your fuel filter- better check that too). Hope this helps.
it hard to say there few things that could cause this but sounds like it a Fuel issue Possible bad fuel pump totallly clogged fuel filter bad injectors Out of gas etc. first thing you need to do is check your fuel pressure ( I bet it be low ) if it low check fuel filter if fuel filter good replace fuel pump If Fuel pressure is within Specs then test the injectors if Fuel pressure is ok and injectors test out ok then check ignition system (spark plugs, coils, module etc)
Could be a lot of things. A sensor, bad gas, clogged fuel filter, spark plugs, plug wires, camshaft position sensor, etc.. Check engine light on?? If so, have the the code scanned to find out the fault code. Go to your mechanic, or local auto parts superstore...most do it for free banking on you will buy the part from them.
