The Timing is WAY off. It is Really Hard to set the Timing on this Car. You will need to Locate a Mechanic and have him Reset the Timing. Once it is Reset, it should Fire right up Unless the Guy Messed up More stuff. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

2001 Passat 1.8 Turbo engine sputtering and hesitating


My car was doing this and I had to get all new coil packs... Mine were replaced under recall at the dealership at no cost. If you take each code and google it, or even check a VW forum, I'm sure the members there can provide a lot more thorough information...... I have a 2001.5 Passat myself and when one thing goes out they all follow suit. I will help with some research for you and post back...... But I'd check the coil packs that sit atop the spark plugs.

My belt is squealing really bad on my 96 Ford Probe SE 2.0 liter, i replaced the power steering pump, the power steering belt and it is still squealing. Is it a pulley?


Often these vehicles have a spring loaded tensioner, which you would have released to replace the belt. When the spring in the tensioner gets weak, causes a squeak.

Timing belt tensionor


If your replacing the timing belt you should also be replacing the water pump. Just easier to replace both at the same time. The timing belt tensioner is part of the water pump case. Go to the auto parts store and ask to see a water pump for your engine. New ones come with the tensioner installed. Rebuilt pumps usually have to have one installed. Check out ebay item 220332480595. Nice photo of what you need to know. Good luck.
