SOURCE: 2002 VW Passat fuel type

If the engine requires Prem fuel I would use it, the problems of not using it are possible piston damage. decreased power and lower fuel economy, when regular is used the knock sensor pulls the timing back to reduce knocking, this i where the lower MPG comes in and power problems, if knock can not be eliminated then the pistons may be damaged. I have a Corvette that uses Prem fuel, if I run regular I loose 3 MPG, so the trade for lower cost fuel is cancelled out by the loss of MPG.

SOURCE: leeking master cylinder vw trasporter t4 2001

Hi,

The leak is only a symtom the real problem is the pedal box! it will have broken!

put your head in the footwell, press the pedal by hand while watching the master cylinder.

If you can see ANY movement of the master cylinder then the mounting has failed!

Hope that helps

SOURCE: 2002 VW Passat GLS 1.8T throwing two codes: P0171

System Too Lean (Bank 1)

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1.
Note: This DTC is very similar to P0174, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected, check the...Combination valve
...Secondary Air Injection pump motor
...Secondary Air Injection solenoid valve
I would take it to a mechanic

Where is the clutch auto adjustment located at on a 98 manual Volkswagen jetta?


you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com

VW Microbus 2.3I Transmission problems


You can try to adjust the clutch cable if it has a cable, if its hydrualyic clutch then i would say theres a problem with the clutch plate or preasure plate, but first check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder if its low then you may have a leak, most of the time its the slave cylinder or master that leak, the master is what the clutch pedal pushes which inturn send fluid to the slave cylinder at the trany which pushes the cltuch fork,so start by seeing if its hydraulic which i think it is. then fluid check if low check for leaks.

Press clutch down truck still moves foward on a 98 isuzu hombre


If you've not done anything to your truck, check the Clutch master cylinder under the hood, there is a resivoir that should have brake fluid in it. It usually sits next to the Brake master cylinder & is a smaller unit. If nothing has been done to the system recently, and your fluid is full, either the Clutch Master Cyl. or the Clutch Slave Cy. mounted on the bellhousing of the trans. is defective, or has a leaking connection.

If leaking connection, tighten & bleed the system. Check under the clutch pedal on the floorboard for brake fluid, if you find it, the Clutch Master Cyl is the problem & will need ot be replaced. Otherwise, the Clutch Slave Cyl. will need to be replaced. System has to be bled after replacing either & the Clutch Master Cyl. must be bled before hooking up the lines to the Clutch Slave Cyl.

Good Luck

good luck.
