Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

2 Answers

I have a 1999 Volkswagen Passat wagon 1.8L Turbo and it has almost 100,000 miles on it, I have a few problems that I haven't been able to find answers for. 1. Sluggish acceleration -i have changed the timing belt, air filter and I replaced the spark plugs summer 2008, i only use premium gas and i replaced the timing belt 2 months ago. 2. Oil in the spark plug shaft -if u know what the engine of a 4 cylinder 1.8L Passat engine looks like then you know there are four shafts where the spark plugs are located. Last time i changed the spark i had noticed there was oil on the wall of the shafts and I'm sure there isn't supposed to be. 3. Oil leak -this problem has been a pain in my *** for the longest time, its a slow constant leak that i have to add oil to the engine about every 2 to 2.5 weeks, when i had the timing belt changed 2 months ago it had stopped but now its back, also when they did the timing belt they found no sign of a leak in the usual places (around the engine seal, the cat converter) so i am at a lose where its coming form or how to fix it. So if anyone can help me out I would appreciate it.

Have your cam seals checked. Cam seals are a big problem on these cars and a major source of oil leaks. Another source is the oil cooler gasket but that doesn't appear to be the issue here as your leaks are well above the oil cooler. Good Luck.

SOURCE: oil usage

Hi there,

I would suggest using a full synthetic, 5W40. I would use a oil system cleaner, prior to the oil change. let it run in vehicle for 10 - 15 mins or so in the old oil, then i would do the change over, to the synthetic 5w40

At times the brake pedal will go almost to the floor when depressed. If you pump it once it will come right up. The pads look to have about 3/8" of material still left on them and the master cylinder if...


this problem is caused by a defective brake master cylinder, the seals are leaking that pressurize the fluid in the chambers of the cylinder, at 166.000 miles you have had a good run with part, they fail around 100,000-125,000 miles no matter the model.
