Each tire has its own rating and performance. The tire size does not determine the tire's pressure ratings. There is small lettering on the tire that will tell you its max pressure rating. If you can not find it because the tire may be too old or just too dirty to read then Look up the brand of tire such as Michelin, Uniroyal, Goodyear, and Google the tires specs. the manufacture ratings will be easy to look up.

I also have a 1999 VX passat GLX. I had the same problem last year and had it repaired. It was around $1,000 in the Chicagoland area.
Good Luck

Way too low. I have the same vehicle. Pressure should be at least 55psi all round, depending on load.

I have a 2001 park ave that burns too much gas.I had it tuned up and it still drink too much gas.How can this be fixed

run the fault codes and find what sensors are affecting the consumption
tune ups are not necessary and only cost money as the ECM is continually tuning the engine every second of operation
If it cannot keep the engine in tune it will set a fault code for you to fix
next you will have to have realistic expectations for the economy that you expect to get
There are many things that need checking like brake drag, tyre pressures , wide tyres, bigger tyres, your driving habits, if over drive is operational, dirty air filters , worn engine, blocked cat converter, load and speed, city or country driving ,lots of hills , faulty injectors , low fuel pressure, incorrect exhaust system
The list goes on and any one or a combination of some will give poor economy.

Coolant loss, no puddles on ground, no steam from exhaust, engine runs fine, no water in oil, no split hoses heater working ok diesel turbo 130bhp

Hi. You should replace your radiator cap. As soon as the temperature is high the pressure in the radiator is to much for the faulty cap and water is lost while the engine is running.It will not leak while switched off. Hope this will solve your problem.

My tire pressure warning light is on saying underinflated pressure although I checked the tiresand the pressure and they were OK. The warning light remains on. How do I fix this?

Had the same problem with my 2006 passat, there is a tyre pressure button on the lower central console on the drivers side of the gearstick, make sure your tyres are at the correct pressure first, then with the engine running press in this button and hold it in for about 10 seconds, this will reset the tyre pressure warning to the pressure that is currently in the tyres
