2001, is most likely drive by cable. check the plastic clips at the throttle body and the gas pedal. They break. If it was drive by wire. it would have thrown a code. You can't buy the clips. replace the cable

2000 VW Passat 4 cylider turbo automatic- motor seems to shake when switching from drive to reverse and vice versa.


Check motor mounts, check CV joints both of thees issues can cause the engine to stutter or shake the other possibility is a fault in the overdrive system of the transmit ion
if you have overdrive . also engin idle should be about 500 to 700 rpm normal any higher will case an abruptness .

My 2001 vw passat 1.6 petrol failed nct. Emissions low idle and high idle too high


change the O2 sensors and if that doesnt work then its a new cat ,you can test the sensors first if you have a automotive test meter though its easy with the right gear ,the two wires with the same colour should read 12v heater circuit and the other two should read a variation from 8v to 12v depending on engine speed

Hi, I have a 2001 ford f250 diesel. Recently I`ve lost fuel ecomomy (600 km/tank to 400km/tank),and also lost power. The turbo sound has changed and is not as quick to spool. At normal driving turbo...


I had one of our work trucks do something similar. It turned out to be the tube that goes to the charged air cooler was split. This is a large plastic tube that carries the pressurized air from the turbo to the chraged air cooler (it's in front of the radiator) then back to the engine.
Start the engine and have some one hold it at a fast idle and feel around for an air leak on those tubes. Be careful not get your hands in the belt or fan.

Hi folks i have got passat 130pd tdi ,it seems


have you checked your air intake system? A clogged air filter will severly limit the amount of air that it can get, or a leak in the exhaust driving the turbo will limit the amount of pressure to spin it. Start by putting a new filter on it. Then if that makes no difference, you can check the waste system by installing a boost gauge, so as to check how much pressure you're actually getting to the manifold. If boost is normal, then you need to look for fuel system or mechanical factors.
