You have bad valve seals. Blue smoke is oil burning. White is water/coolant, black is to much fuel. If the car runs good after the smoke, then it isn't a head job. I recommend you get a manual. It is exitensive work,, but follow the manual and you can do it.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2002 vw passat- EPC light came on when starting

The EPC light means the car is running in "Limp Mode". I had the same thing happen to my car (2001.5 Passat GLS) and i chased the problem for three months.... I would drive and begin to get on the interstate only to have complete loss of power and inability to accelerate. Id pull over, turn off the car then crank it right back up and it was fine. But it came back again randomly. I would suggest pulling codes with a scanner. If you do not have one most local auto parts stores will scan them for free. Mine turned out to be a sensor that is right on top of the engine in the front.... If I'm not mistaken it's the engine speed sensor, also called crank sensor or impulse sensor. You may also want to do a throttle body cleaning.... That would be beneficial no matter what.use extreme care when doing any TB stuff, though, as it's very sensitive. I doubt you want to be forced to get a new one for ~650$. I'd also suggest getting the Bentley Manual for the car as its VERY handy! Http://tech.bentleypublishers.com/thread.jspa?threadID=35463 (there's a link at the bottom to get it.... I really suggest it, as this car is very high maintenance!!!!!!!)

SOURCE: I have a 2002 vw passat. it has white smoke!!

Does the smoke occur all the time? If it is present just after start up and then goes away, it could be no problem at all. There is always some condensation in the exhaust at start up. It is more noticeable in cold weather.

However, if it is there constantly, and you are losing coolant, it could mean there is a headgasket problem. Watch your coolant level and watch your temperature gauge. If the coolant starts disappearing, and the car starts overheating, stop it immediately and get it to an auto repair shop. Driving a car with a bad headgasket can cause major engine damage.

Break foult


I did the brakes on my 03 Passat about 2 years ago and the same thing happened to me. I took it to several places to have them figure it out any many wanted to charge an arm and a leg. With severe hesitation I took VW and they said it was a recall sensor item and would cost nothing to fix. So you may want to give VW a call and see if it is the same sensor issue.

A friend of mine has a VW Sharan V6 that done almost the same things and it was the electric water pump on the front bottom right of the engine that seezed up( yours is most likely doing the same), it's a black cylindrical sausage shape but a little thicker in size.The water leeks into the motor when it seezes and causes a intermittent short circut.

Oil smell in my vw


Sounds like valve cover gaskets need to be changed - they're a common failure on the 30v engine. Fortunately, they're also relatively inexpensive ($25 per cylinder bank - you need two - from www.ecstuning.com). They're also easy to change. They'd easily explain your oil smell - oil leaks onto hot valve covers and burns. Also, the misfire could be (not a guarantee, but it's possible) a result of valve cover gaskets as well - there's the main gasket which seals around the edge of the valve cover, and a second gasket shaped like three rings. This trims and seals the openings around each of the spark plugs, where the plugs are inserted through the valve covers. If you're leaking there, you can drown the top end of the plug in oil. If that gets into the spark wire boot, it can cause a misfire.
