Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat

Firefire in cylinder four / random misfires

My 2003 VW Passat does not have any power when i drive. IT seems like to wants to die out, sputters. I changed spark plus and all four ignition coils. Still doing the same thing. I had the vehicle tested at a VW dealership. Test reads "misfire in cylinder four" also reads random misfire. Could it be the fuel injectors?

Its not likley to be an injector fault.the air mass meter is far more common.if you unplug it it defaults to a average value and should improve the way it runs if that is the problem.

How to fix diagnostic code for 1999 vw passat po304 po305 po306


Hi. You have misfires on cylinders 4, 5 and 6. If there are no faults on cylinder 1, 2 and 3 then I would check the power to the left bank injectors. Also check spark plugs and ht leads. If there are running issues then this should be an easy fix. If the faults are very intermitant then it can be a bit tricky to isolate.

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.

could be time for a tune up also check the spark plug holes for oil if the valve cover gasket are leaking into there can also have a bad coil if the check engine light is on have it scanned at a auto parts store (most do it for free)the code can lead you to the bad cylinder exp code p0301 is cylinder number one p0306 is cylinder number six and the same for p0302-p035

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.

1996 VW Passat - Random cylinder miss fire, worse


Pop the heed, see the air box on the very left? On top of that box is the Ignition Control Unit. Little black square w/ winds about 1/2"
thick....

That is the problem. Or Your MAF sensor...
I don't know how to chech the Ignition Control Unit with out the proper tester.

But the MAF is located directly below in side the box.
If you POP off the large hose that comes out of the front of the air box. You can see the MAF, spreay it some contact cleaner for electronics not BREAK CLEANER>>>>>>.
