Question about 1996 Volkswagen Passat
1996 VW Passat - Random cylinder miss fire, it is worse when the car is hot (after 20 mins of driving) and if the AC is on. It will cut off at stops and barely run 55, when this occurs the windshield wipers also fail. The wires and plugs have been changed (twice) and did not help.
Eng lite on - reads cylinder 2, 3 missfire, random cylinder miss fire, secondary air error.
Pop the heed, see the air box on the very left? On top of that box is the Ignition Control Unit. Little black square w/ winds about 1/2"
That is the problem. Or Your MAF sensor...
I don't know how to chech the Ignition Control Unit with out the proper tester.
But the MAF is located directly below in side the box.
If you POP off the large hose that comes out of the front of the air box. You can see the MAF, spreay it some contact cleaner for electronics not BREAK CLEANER>>>>>>.
