My 1997 grand am runs rough, theres oil around the 1 spark plug, if it sits and runs for a 10-15 min it will start to get hot. also the gas gauge will say 1/2 tank then after a mile or 2 it will say 1/4 ...


Those are troubled cars and older ones are even more troubled with problems I would sell it and get anything but a pontiac and a dodge stay away warning! warning! You got high miles on that ? Its a money drain.

I have a 1997 passat petrol coughs and splutters on cold start u


There is a cold start valve on the throttle body,may just need a clean.Check for damp in the ht leads and use wd40 or another lube to dispell moisture.Check your vacuum hoses for splits as at that age they will have cracks and leaks not visible even after removing.Have you ever changed the petrol filter just as a precaution and what is the condition of the sparkplugs as worn one work on hot tempretures but mess around in the cold.

Vw passat will not run


*Assuming everything ran fine prior to running out of petrol*, the most likely cause is air in your fuel lines or fuel injectors.

For a Volkswagen, the most sure fix is to have a Volkswagen mechanic inspect and maybe clean and prime your injectors. If you are handy enough, you could possibly do this yourself, but it can be quite hard.

Also, there are some additives that claim to be able to fix this in a bottle, but there efficacy is marginal at best.

Last, this problem can sometimes work itself out, though the process of waiting for the bubbles to clear (you may have to endure many quits by your engine) can be more than frustrating.

I hope this helps.

Hi guys,


sounds like you have some bubbles trapped in there somewhere. try bleeding the cooling system by letting the car idle with the radiator cap off. when the engine reaches operating temp the thermostat should open, and you should see a drop in coolant level. top it off, and wait to see if more air bubble come up, and repeat until you;re satisfied that there are no more air bubbles left.
