A bad cam sensor will definitely make an engine not fire. I would start with replacing that.if that doesnt help, then look into the oil pressure sensor or maybe the oil pump? I know some cars have a safety circuit that disables the ignition if the pressure gets too low.

My 2004 VW Passat 1.8 turbo has had quite a few problems. In February my car started flashing OIL PRESSURE TURN MOTOR OFF whenever I'd hit 2000 RPM. SO I got my oil changed and my pressure checked and it...


With all of the low voltage problems going on here I would check the body computer. That is the only thing I can think of that would cause all of this. Some others may have suggestions on this.

Stalling when stopped fine when high speed


There could be some water in the fuel (especially with the weather we are having) and it wouldn't hurt to put some Heet (Heat) in the tank. It is designed to remove moisture from the fuel and can be purchased at nearly any retailer. Even if your 'service engine' light isn't on, there is likely a code stored in the 'pending' section of the engine computer. Places like Auto Zone (in most states) offer a free computer scanning service. Ask them to test it and if they get nothing, ask them to test the pending codes. If you get any codes, have them write the codes down so you can post them here for further explanation. Don't let them sell you anything. Most of the people working at stores like this don't know what they are doing and rely on the computer to tell them what to sell you.

Hi. This issue has several causes, but the oil light indicator is a strong sign of low pressure in the engine. This will cause the engine lubrication rate to drop, thus, producing a illuminated oil light, and erratic Oil pressure readings. The necessary actions are to have a manual oil pressure test ran on this engine, asap. When running a manual oil pressure test, you will discover if the true oil pressure is low, or normal. If the test proves that the oil pressure is, indeed, low, this will confirm that the Oil pump is suspect.

Now, if the true readings given during the manual oil pressure test are indicating that the pressure is normal, this will be the result of a failed sending unit(oil pressure switch). Although the oil pressure is suspect, this is not your only issue here. There seems to be a abnormal compression rate, present. This is causing the rough idle, and erratic RPMs. I recommend to administer a engine block compression test, as well. This test will discover if , indeed, there are issues within the cylinder heads, and block structure, such as a worn head gasket, cylinder wall issues, and cracked block. Normally, these issue will send signs, like white, or gray smoke out the tail pipe, or discolored oil. It will, also, promote erratic RPM ratings, and a rough idle. Have the oil pressure test, and engine block compression test ran, asap.

Once the test are administered, you will be able to isolate the actual problem areas, more accurately. Check the spark plug wire sets, and ignition assembly for faults, also.

Sounds like a problem with a weak sensor and the computer. You need to get your mechanic to code the car as to rule out any problems with the computer or the sensors. Your car is about the right year for those sensors to start getting weak. When the computer reads those sensors that then sets things. So if the sensor is getting weak, it would not be reading things right so your car would be not running so good. I would be looking at the Throttle Position Sensor. If after coding the car and nothing show up there. I would be checking for a vacuum leak they will often cause this problem. And one more thing when is the last time you did a good tune up on the car? Stark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor? Air filter might be something to look into too. I hope this helps and good luck!

Car wont start


I hope you did not run it without oil. Did it overheat ? Try replacing the crank shaft sensor. It is located in the cylinder part of the the engine near the timing cover. If it overheated the temperature control sensor could have gone out too. And the Idle Position sensor. Sorry I had to tell you this. But I hope you did not blow the rings and head gasket.
