Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Gas tank door does not open

I have a 1996 buick skylark and my gas tank switch inside of my car will not pop open the gas tank door on the outside. I think that it is frozen for the snow and cold weather. I think that my switch does work but the problem is that it will not open the tank door. Is there another way to open my gas tank door besides the switch or do I just have to wait?

Do I have a bad fuel pump


Not symptoms of a pump. Sounds more like a bad idle air control valve. run some fuel system cleaned in it and run a full tank of gas to see if it changes.

My 1996 buick skylark has gas leaking into the oil. What is causing this?


The most common causes are a faulty injector or fuel pressure regulator.
If one of the injectors is not closing, it will allow liquid gas to flow into the cylinder and past the rings.
If the regulator fails, it will allow liquid gas into the intake.

96 skylark starts then shuts off


Could be many things. First things that comes to mind is the fuel filter, second is carburetor. Sounds like it isn't getting sufficient fuel. This could be the result of debris in the cas tank coming up through the gas line and gettting stuck in the filter. There are really other things that could go wrong. Check and ensure with someone helping that when you press the gas pedal that the linking is properly moving the mechanism on the carburetor and make sure the butterfly valve is opening. Try spraying some WD40 on the valves moving parts if they seem to be sticking.

Outside gas door will not release from inside


Gas cover has a pressure clip that fits inside on the gas door latch. When you pull on the cable in the cabin a little arm withdraws and the pressure clip causes the gas door to spring open. If the clip is missing, the arm withdraws but there is no spring to pop the gas door open. Replace the pressure clip.

What happens when it runs out of gas


SHOOT STARTING FLUID IN TO THE THROTTLE BODY, NOT TOO MUCH,BECAUSE IT WILL BACK FIRE, UNTIL IT STAYS RUNNING, IF THIS DOESN'T FIX THE PROBLEM, THEN FIND THE GAS TANK AND BANG IT WITH A RUBBER MALLET, NOT TO HARD, JUST ENOUGH TO SHAKE THE TANK.

AUdi A6 gas tank button


There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car.  As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.
