1996 VW Passat - Random cylinder miss fire

Plugs and wires have been changed to no avail. After ~20 minutes of driving the car runs like it only has 4 cylinders. will cut off at lights, and barely get up to 50mph. This is worse if the A.C. is on. If this happens when the AC is on, the windshield wipers also fail

1996 VW Passat - Random cylinder miss fire, worse


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"
thick....

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>>>>>>.

Firefire in cylinder four / random misfires


Its not likley to be an injector fault.the air mass meter is far more common.if you unplug it it defaults to a average value and should improve the way it runs if that is the problem.
