You may need to install what they call shims in between the starter and the flywheel in order to align it correctly with the flywheel

Hi
Get a mobile Technician to call round to test your car and give you a report. There are too many variables for this to list.

Vw passat epc light on


the belt slips, and the engine goes into limp mode, and the epc light will come on- to protect itslef until its fixed. Once its fixed...you may have to decode her up to 9 times to get it to start...I did. Ive done 5 timing belt changes on these blasted cars and every time it slips a tooth and the engine cuts itself off with epc, i have to decode it at least 8 times. good luck. and to the idiot who said gas cap..get a life .

First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.

Driving down interstate with car running fine. Then in my 2003 VW Golf the EPC light began flashing and I lost power. What do I need to look for?


the epc light is telling you that you have a feuling problem, get a mechanic to run a diagnostic scan to find the suorce, it should be only something small because the only dangerous light to look for is the oil light

EPC Light on , VW dies when stopping


Tell him to clean the electrical connector at the throttle body with 90% rubbing alcohol. He may want to use a nylon brush on the contact pins while cleaning. I'm pretty sure the car needs a throttle adaptation performed also. Find a shop with a Vag Com scanner, they can do it for you.
