This is where it would be nice to plug it into a code reader, but lets go over some probabilities. Did you check to see if the immobiliser is active ? Fuse 28 (fuel) and 29 (ignition) are fed by the same ECU output. Check them. Fuel pump relay is #208 .Check. Also, the Passat has a strange quirk, where it has 2 temp sensors. The ECU checks both and if there is a discrepancy, it wont start. Start with this and good luck.

    Hi There,s no problem with the immobillser as it would start and run for a second or so if faulty.

Strong petrol smell


When your engine misfires fuel is still being pumped into the engine, it's just not being ignited. You need to find the cause of the misfire first. It could be: a bad sparkplug, a bad sparkplug wire, a leaking head gasket, a bad ignition coil, or cracked engine block. I'd start with the spark plugs first, then the ignition coils as they commonly fail. Good luck!

Hi, i have a suzuki jimny compact 4wd suv, 1.3 litre DOHC petrol engine. it was ok , then this symptom arose. oil and oil/ air filters replaced a few months ago. sometimes it develops a sort of air /fuel...


It is possibly a Camshaft Sensor problem, it usually happen when the engine is very hot most likely at 80-90 *C the camshaft sensor failed and the ECU cannot recieve a signal from the camshaft sen. causing delay in ignition spark and fuel injection, or misfiring..

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

Runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm


Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash
