Question about 2000 Volkswagen Passat 4Motion
More detail would be nice, but I can give you a worst case scenario..
The mk4 Passat 1.8t has been plagued with clogged oil pumps. The oil change intervals might have been too infrequent, sludge builds up, and the only fix is to drop the oil pan and clean or replace the pump.
Just a wild guess but insufficient lubrication and low oil pressure/volume could have led to engine damage. Its hard to say without hearing it.
In the mean time check your maintenance on the car, if it has gone more than 60,000 miles without a new timing belt and tensioner, fix that right away!! When those belts give up the ghost, its time to invest in a new engine.

SOURCE: VW Passat turbo broken
Pricing for the replacement will vary widely based on who does the work, but you'll typically find better prices at an independent shop than at a dealership. When you choose an indie shop though, make SURE they're a Euro specialist. You honestly don't want a guy working on your high-tech turbo engine when he spends his days wrenching on Mustangs and Chevy trucks. As for whether you have to do it - yes you do. The turbo is an integral part of the car and the car won't run well at all (and will likely degrade further) if you don't fix it.

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.
