Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat

Now that I've changed the plug wires and PCV breather tube, it runs great. Now the check engine light won't go off. Any suggestions?

    Yea! I'll go back to Auto Zone. I purchased over $200.00 worth of parts to fix the original problem.

    I'll let you know. Thanks for the help.

Disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and then reconnect. If the code light comes on, go to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. You may have helped fix a problem, but not the one that lite up the warning light.

If that was the original problem then all you need to do is go to a parts store and they can use their scanner to turn it off. I have never been charged for this. The dealer will charge you. If you just want it to go away and have not fixed the problem then most likely it will come right back on.

I would go have it scanned at a parts store and make sure what you did fixed the problem and then have it turned off at the same time.

    IF you have it reset and it doesnt come back on then you have fixed the problem.

THe engine is burning oil and fouling the sensors and clogging the converter. This could be caused be a faulty PCV valve, bad valve seals or piston rings, This condition only gets worse = as the converter clogs it puts back pressure in to engine and forces motor oil back into the air intake thru either the PCV passage or vent breather tube. You can try to clean some of crud out of the converter and exhaust system with a good additive like Seamist or Techron, etc. The underlying cause will still cause it to clog again is you don't repair the root problem.

Oil blowing out of the dipstick tube.


On top of the valve cover there is a fresh air breather unit. Make sure the breather unit is not plugged.
Also the fixed orifice PCV should be clear. Find a tool that will go through the orifice and make sure it is clean.
Remove the vacuum hose and check it for cracks or internal damage. With the engine running, make sure you have vacuum through the hose.
Let me know when your finished cleaning the crankcase breather system.

Could be either the ignition coil or an injector problem whereby the latter could be caused by impending failure of the on-board computer.
Check with any chain parts store in your area by phone and ask if they offer a free code check for your car.
Even without a check engine light, you may have a code (or more) stored in the ECU.
