Question about 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio

1 Answer

VW Passat 2002

Just got my car back (about a month ago) from repairing the fuel sensor and I noticed my thermostat bouning all over the place. Air conditioner was on but did not notice that the engine was overheating. It would go to 0 then I would turn the corner and it would jump up to normal then back down again. Then up and down but not constantly. Did I get a untrustworthy mechanic who is supplementing his income :{

2002 VW Passat GLS 1.8T throwing two codes: P0171 and P0411. No noticeable loss in performance. Can I fix this myself?


System Too Lean (Bank 1)

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in bank 1 detected a lean condition (too much oxygen in the exhaust). On V6/V8/V10 engines, Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has cylinder #1.
Note: This DTC is very similar to P0174, and in fact your vehicle may show both codes at the same time.

P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected, check the...Combination valve
...Secondary Air Injection pump motor
...Secondary Air Injection solenoid valve
I would take it to a mechanic

I have a 2003 Passat 1.8L turbo sedan. 2 months


Can't be 100% sure but if you didn't have this problem before doing the work on the wheel bearing I can only think 1 of two things. When they removed your whhel bearing the sensor ring for the abs got damaged or the abs sensor is damaged or not pressed into place in the knuckle. The front sensors are not screwed on, they just have a little sleeve and at time with the vibrations of doing a wheel bearing they get loose. You most probally won't have an abs fault due to these problems.

P1177 engine code


This code can be a sensor code but the real task is to find out why the code was set in the first place. Is the sensor malfunctioning or is there something else that is causing the sensor to give erratic readings. We had this same code on a Passat that was brought into our shop, go here to read our confirmed fix.

2002 VW Passat fuel type


If the engine requires Prem fuel I would use it, the problems of not using it are possible piston damage. decreased power and lower fuel economy, when regular is used the knock sensor pulls the timing back to reduce knocking, this i where the lower MPG comes in and power problems, if knock can not be eliminated then the pistons may be damaged. I have a Corvette that uses Prem fuel, if I run regular I loose 3 MPG, so the trade for lower cost fuel is cancelled out by the loss of MPG.

Hi

If the coolant temperature sensor is of the 4 wire type then these are a common failure on VW's.
