Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat

2002 passat-Please help!

My car is accelerates excellent at times, awful at times. My car also stutter steps here and there and it worries me-its not when I shift and it seems like it is random. My car dealer assumed it was the gas, but it isnt. (put mid-grade gas in and still have the problem). I have 2 weeks left on the dealer warranty, but the check engine light doesnt turn on. The acceleration was completely there on my test drive.

Please help!

Take and leave at dealers to have the problem happen to them, suggest looking into lemon laws in your state

Stopping at red light the car starts to stutter as I accelerate


Your confusing MAP with a MAF sensor . You can not clean a MAP sensor .
manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP sensor )
mass air flow sensor MAF you can clean .

admissions = emissions !
accelerate again and it starts to stutter. Try the TPS - throttle position sensor .

Volkswagon passat 2001 stutters while in drive


There is a vacuum line that runs under the manifold, it seems to be a very common problem.

Go to autozone, have it scanned with a OBD2 scanner and come back and post the trouble codes, also have the autozone guys look for a bad vacuum hose that comes off of the manifold, they might find it right away.

My 2002 vw passat's esp light comes on when you tuen on the engine, car sounds awful and judders. If you stop the car for a min or so and restart it clears the problema nd drives lovely again. This can...


Sounds like you're not running on all 4 cylinders all the time. Could be one or more dirty spark plugs, bad ignition coils, etc. You'll ruin the engine when you don't get it fixed quickly, even after repairing you might notice a significant hp-decrease.

My advice would be to take it to the dealer asap and have them troubleshoot. Since they can read the faultcodes from the car's ECU, it should give a good pointer to the cause.
