Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

Car swings but does not start

So, I used my car the night before. ALWAYS started fine. This particular morning, I start the car, it idles low and switches off. Now it swings and does not want to start up.

Things I have checked:

Fuel
Spark
Replaced starter
Checked cam belt.
Spark plugs

The car swing is very healthy but just does not want to start? Please help!

Check for a leak in the air intake. The reason why I said this is because a leaking air intake causes a low idle condition if its after the MAF sensor. If the leak is bad enough the car wont even start. Some cars equiped with MAP sensor that has malfunctioned can also cause a no start condition.

1998 pontiac sunfire manual. Car starts but sputters and then dies and is completly dead but in the morning will start again and then die. I changed the coil pack but still the same. what can it be?


You can't do any testing, until you have a battery
that will take and hold a charge

Then you move on to testing the Alternator,then
Fuel Pressure & continue on with other testing

Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle


Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

My car overheated due to a radiator hose break.


sounds like you blew a head gasket or cracked the head it will be expensive to repair. anytime you have white smoke coming out the exhaust you have water in the conbustion chamber.
