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?

We need more information to assist you.

I would trust them but make sure it is just not in need of some kind of cleaning.

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

SOURCE: strange noise from front drivers side after approaching 30mph.

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 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.

My 2004 VW Passat 1.8 turbo has had quite a few problems. In February my car started flashing OIL PRESSURE TURN MOTOR OFF whenever I'd hit 2000 RPM. SO I got my oil changed and my pressure checked and it...


With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

99 vw passat, when running, MIL lite, on car vibrates- shakes


no flashing light and rough shaking will be part of spark plug but also a very bad miss fire. I am going to guess that your engine is a 1.8t if so you have 4 coils that sit on top of your spark plugs that most likely are arcing you will need to figure out which coil is failing or you can save yourself the trouble and replace all 4 and the spark plugs. before you do that though check your wireing going to your coils look for broken wires or the ground that is next to the #1 coil that is the one closest to the front of the motor and you. hope that helps. that will be the start to fixing your issue also when you pull out the spark plug look down the hole first and make sure that there is not oil in the bottom of the hole if that is the case you will need a valve cover gasket as well. good luck hope that helps

2003 automatic VW Passat not changing gears right


The trannys on the vw's are weird, they actually have a brain which tells the tranny what to do, when to switch gears under the driving conditions etc. Is thair a check engine light on? when is the last time you had a tranny service done on it? Also, it sounds even weirder, but is your alternator ok, is it putting out the proper volts to the battery? the alternator not charging the system can lead to alot of weird acting issues.
