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: 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

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.

Have a vibration from the engine but if the revs go above 3000rpm it goes away ?

5 Causes of Engine Vibration ...
If your car is shaking while it's on but not actually moving, then it's likely not the tires. This usually means there is something broken in the engine, such as the radiator fan or engine mounts. Fuel system issues can also cause the car to shake even while standing still.

Why does my 2007 bmw x3 shakes very bad under the seats


Barbara,
Vibration is caused by something out of balance - or worn.

If your steering wheel shakes and vibrates there's a tyre balance/steering problem.

You say that it is under the seats - this suggests a worn propshaft (driveshaft) which is causing the vibration, or a worn gearbox or engine mounting.

There's nobody on Fixya who can give you a 100% diagnosis without actually witnessing the symptoms themself.

If the vibration is as bad as you say it is - either give a mobile mechanic a call or call in at a workshop and ask them to give you an opinion. If you continue to drive a car that has a shaking/vibration problem you're likely to cause further -more expensive- problems.

Hi guys, I come to you with an issue on my 1985 Buick LeSabre collectors 5.0 V8. Well, the issue is that it the engine will shake the car when trying to stop. Could it be the engine harmonic balancer? Or...


Is the vibration only occurring when you turn the vehicle off? If so, it is not the harmonic balancer. The way they work is tp stop the vibrations of your engine from causing crank shaft failure. When this device is not working to its full potential, the vehicle vibrates and sounds awful as soon as you start the engine.
