You probably have OIL that is TOO thick in the unit. During the winter use 10 weight oil. 20-30-40-50 is too thick for really low temps. Your Oil is probably like molasses right now.

Putting a BLOCK HEATER in the engine will heat the BLOCK, thin the oil and allow everthing to turn just great. Go to your local auto parts store, and they probably have one in stock, if you do not wait too long. This is common.

DO NOT HEAT ENGINE WITH HOT WATER, BLOW TORCH OR ANY OPEN FLAME.

Kindly,

Jim

Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while attempting to start it, if the starter is sticking the vehicle should turn over while your tapping on it indicating the starter needs replaced.... dont have to smash it just a few love taps :)

Stumbling Idle


possibly ajusting itsself. any severe weather/pressure changes in your area? and if so does your cars cpu compensate for this (thinks its at a different elevation etc then resets its idle proper after a certian time? I have heard of this but not sure if VW uses it) perhaps ask the service tech.

New battery in 03 VW Passat, engine turns but will not start.


Possible flooding, cold weather can freez open injectors causing them to leak into the cylinders. Press the gass pedal all the way to the floor and crank the engine for no more than 60 seconds. The cylinders will clear themselves allowing proper mix of air/fuel and should start easy. If that does not solve please specify if the engine is 1.8l or 2.8l.
