I suspect the throttle body has lost its basic settings for some reason,ive only known of that happening a few times tho,but that is the symptoms of a throotle unit,plug in a scanner check the codes and reset the throttle body in basic settings

SOURCE: vw passat 1.8t battery problem?

Hi

Either your battery has just given up the ghost,........ Is it the original, and now 10 yrs old ?
Or your Alternator is not charging enough, to replenish what is used.

Have battery tested first, if OK, then the alternator belt tension, and alternator for correct output charging rate.

If all these shows no faults, your starter is then suspect.

Good Luck !

A FixYa would be nice thanks !....John.

SOURCE: my vw 2000 1.8t passat has trouble idling. Anyone?

It "might" be your throttle position sensor, look for some electronic's going into your or near your throttle body and clean them with disc brake cleaner, something that won't leave a film on it.
This was the problem with my chevy, I know it not the same car but it's worth a try, cheaper that replacing it.

Check the spark plug for that cylinder, the wire and coil. Also check for any vacuum leaks around that cylinder. See my "How To" on finding a vacuum leak.

SOURCE: 1999 VW Passat 1.8 turbo Code #3 cylinder misfire.

Coils and plugs are not the only things that can cause misfires. Misfires can be caused by vacuum leaks, low compression, faulty fuel injectors, clogged EGR ports (on vehicles with individual ports for each cylinder), blown head gaskets, burned valves...you can spend a LOT of money on parts by just going in and replacing things without diagnosing WHY the cylinder is misfiring.

- Switch on the head lamps for 5 minutes.
- Keeping the head lamps ON, start the engine.
If the lights die,
- Check the battery terminals.
- Check battery state of charge.
- Charging system.
If the lights still glow sharply,
- Check fuses and relays in under the hood fuse and relay box junction.
- Battery to starter motor cable.
- Battery to engine ground and chassis ground cable.
- Solenoid on starter motor.
- Starter motor.
- Wiring.
-Ignition switch.

Vw passat 2006 slow to start this morning and this afternoon alarm went off when i locked the car and took 10 seconds to stop


Sounds like the battery or a short in the battery line. The VW alarm will come on if you disconnect the battery. Use a voltmeter (or mutlimeter) to check the battery voltage (red lead on positive pole; black on negative; range on 0-50V). When car is not running, you should see 12V; when car is running, you should see 15V (if the alternator is working). You can also test the battery charge by turning on the headlights. If they brighten when you rev the engine or if the dim when you turn on other electrical accesories, then it is likely the battery.

I've a 1999 VW passat that misfires and has no power.any clues?


Could use some more data such as:

All the time?
Only hot?
Only when first starts?
Only when wet?
Did it start after after buying cheap gas or adding gas from an old gas can?
How long since last tune up?


I would suspect bad ign wire leaking high voltage or it is not getting to the spark plug OR a fouled plug. Sometimes you can hear the spark SNAPPING to ground or see it at night. Often you can get bad wires to show up by spraying them with a mist of water from an old spray bottle and uptting the car in gear with light acelleration. Make SURE to NOT stand in front of the car while somone is jazzing the gas!!!

Been a while since I have worked on a VW but most often it is plugs and wires.


Hope this helped,
Ken C

Broken vaccume lines could also give you a skip and poor power in some situations.
