Question about Volkswagen Cars & Trucks
08 vw passt 2.0 t has check enginge light on tps is on when i start it i makes a weird noise and shakes what could that be also my tps when i start the car it blinks a few time and stays on this happened when i changed my front left tire what could it be im thinking of taking it to get serviced a vw dealership but idk how much that would cost?
TPS = Throttle Position Sensor
TPMS = Tire Pressure Monitoring System
The TPS is located on the Engine and is part of the Intake System
The TPMS is located INSIDE the Wheel. If you changed the RIM or the Sensor that is normally located inside the wheel is missing, it would cause this. The Weird Noise? Is that an Out of Balance Tire?

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

Try checking the CV axle for a torn rubber boot over the knuckle, and also jack and shake the wheel up, down, left and right, as you may have a bad wheel berring or something else in the front end. Also check the strut, see if it's leaking, and also check the spring for breakage.
Hope this helps you out!

You need to Replace the Catalytic Converter. That is what you are Smelling. It has Clogged up and will also Cause the Light on the Dash Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

You have a bad coil pack, they usually crack from age and heat. It's best to replace them all. Check for a VW recall on this item.
