    I have random cilinder misfire. It started out just under load, but now it happens after a few minutes of warm up. I changed plug/wires/coil/fuel filter/air filter...What could this be. it runs well for a short time, then power loss and shaking engine. I have a code reader, and it says misfire in random cilinders.

I had this problem on my 2002 passat. it was the ignition coils. first set were replaced in 2002 as a vw recall. second set (at 122K miles) were relatively inexpensive to fix. just one failed but it made the engine run really rough - my mechanic was able to move it from one cylinder to the next to get the problem to repeat.

1st thing you must do is have engine trouble codes read. Most parts stores do this for free. They will plug a hand held scanner into the vw's diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and will 'read' any trouble codes stored in the cars computer (which have caused the check engine light to flash), They will explain what the codes mean and offer advice, write down the codes, and if you have any further questions, post the codes and questions here.
good luck!

2001 Passat check engine light flashing and car shuts off will not start


The first step is to plug in an OBD-2 scanner to read exactly what the fault code is, that is setting off the check engine light (CEL). If you are in the USA, most auto parts stores like AutoZone, Oreillys, or Advance Auto Parts have these OBD-2 scanners and will check for vehicle fault codes at no cost (free).
Since the problem seems to arise when the check engine light comes on, it is likely the code will show the exact malfunctioning part, or an area to focus on.
Without knowing the exact error/fault code, it's impossible to say what the exact problem is, that's causing the car's shutdown.
