Let them see the car.

Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.

It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.

You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak

Switch off, you nay be out of oil. Check dip stick for presence of oil, hopfully you belong to a home start breakdown co, call them to confirm other wise call local garage, if you start and run payout could be looking at a very expensive repair.

A knocking sound on my 98 vw passat engine and a ticking sound on the upper engine side - help


I fear the news is probably not good. Many Passats around 1998-2004 were badly affected by engine sludge even when oil changes were done regularly.

http://www.thecarconnection.com/news/1049827_settlement-addresses-engine-sludge-issue-in-audi-a4-vw-passat


These noises usually mean that oil starvation has caused an engine bearing to fail, and also excessive wear in the camshaft area. If the sump is removed the sludge (if there) will be seen.

Hi In my VW Passat 2002 model with 118K I got oil pressure indicator and stop sign in dashboard. and got off. what I have to do now?


Oh no sorry to hear that. You did the right thing by stopping. If you have the 1.8 turbo engine this happens too often. The oil pressure sending unit could be the problem, but most likely it is the oil pump. This engine has sludge buildup problem & VW is aware of it, so there is hope. VW issued this update awhile back....

Passat owners. 1998 through 2004: VW has just made a warranty extension covering certain oil sludge repairs on these models. It is now covered for 8 years unlimited mileage and will reimburse for repairs made because of this problem. See your local dealer or contact VOA for more information.

Good luck, i hope this helps.

What do the warning lights on the 2004 VW Passat dashboard mean as they are a few flashing and I don't know what they mean?


Depending on which light is flashing will determine whats wrong, normally thee are three lights that flash one is yellow check engine light, when it flashes it means a misfire and catastrophic catalytic converter failure. Red oil light means your low on oil and if it does not have a gage you may have damaged the engine and then there is several others like air bag warning light this would be caused by a defective clock spring, or a malfunction in the computer system. Your best bet is call your local dealer and describe to them your problem and tell them what lights are flashing they can determine weather you should drive it or have it towed in for repairs. Remember FLASHING RED OR Yellow light means imminent failure of expensive engine parts.

2003 passat issues


Well, your local garage is correct. Most cars now a days have computers for everything. That is one computer that runs those things. But before you go into replacing an expensive motor, go through and get a wiring diagram from your local parts store, and then see where the wiring all have in common, this may only be the computer, but may be a fuse of some sort. hope that helps.

2004 VW Passat engine cover at bottom of car hanging down. Could this be related to oil/oil filter change recently done?


yes that is very possable because that cover would have to be removed for the oil change. the beast cure would be to get a few cable ties or zip ties to tie it back up

I have a VW passat estate on a 51 plate,when the engine is cold the gear change is fine yet the further I go the harder it is to change gear


I experience the same problem in my '03 passat TDI130 5dr. Gearchange when hot became increasingly baulky.

VW Checked this out, linkages, clutch hydraulics etc were fine.

Solution was to have the Gearbox Oil changed. This cost about £65 and was using VW052 transmission fluid.
