This code can be a sensor code but the real task is to find out why the code was set in the first place. Is the sensor malfunctioning or is there something else that is causing the sensor to give erratic readings. We had this same code on a Passat that was brought into our shop, go here to read our confirmed fix.

2001 vw passat not shifting out of first


The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

Engine is shaking, reduced power to engine, service engine light on, all of a sudden, car was driving fine

Hi

If the coolant temperature sensor is of the 4 wire type then these are a common failure on VW's.
