2001 Passat 1.8 Turbo engine sputtering and hesitating

My car was doing this and I had to get all new coil packs... Mine were replaced under recall at the dealership at no cost. If you take each code and google it, or even check a VW forum, I'm sure the members there can provide a lot more thorough information...... I have a 2001.5 Passat myself and when one thing goes out they all follow suit. I will help with some research for you and post back...... But I'd check the coil packs that sit atop the spark plugs.

I have a p0303 trouble code on my 1999 Passat. Missfire on #3 cylinder. Coil is ok, I'm lost.

coil packs very prone to failing... check compression for good readings (at least 100 - 120psi) if okay try new spark plug as these can fail under load and its the cheapest part to replace to eliminate. if misfire still present swap cylinder 3 coil with cylinder 1 coil and see if fault code moves to cylinder 1. hope this advice helps

My 2004 passat started running ruff and i checked the codes and got p0011 and p0303? 96000 miles I think it may be the timing belt but I dont want to change it for nothing???

If you haven't changed the timing belt at 60,000 miles then you NEED to. The P0303 is cylinder 3 misfire. If the plugs have not been changed, time to inspect and change.
  • P0011 "A" Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1)
  • Cure the misfire first and clear the codes. The misfire could be what is causing the other code.

    What is the meaning of 98 Honda Civic error codes P0300 P0303 P0304? Engine will not start, does not seem to fire.

    P0300 indicates that there is multiple miss fire in the ignition system. P0303 and p0304 indicates the miss fire is in cylinder #3 and #4. Replace the spark plug, and wire set, and rotor and cap if there is one. Can not remember if there are coil packs on the civic, the age thing. change the fuel filter and clean out the fuel injectors with fuel injector cleaner for the next 3 full ups. When the spark plugs are removed, inspect them for condition, if there clean or dirty with carbon build up. which would indicate how the engine is running. Keep me posted and drive safe.
