Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat
When I first purchased my Passat it ran fine. It started spitting and sputtering and running bad. Upon suggestions from fixya I replaced plug wires and it ran great. Now 3 months later it started doing the same thing. When I bought plug wires I also bought plugs. Didn't have long reach plug wrench so I just put them away and just changed the wires. Since then I found someone to help with the plugs. When we pulled the wires they were soaked in oil. When we got the plugs out they were dripping in oil(4 of 6). The car runs great but it's just a matter of time before the plugs foal out again. And the car was over 2 quarts low on oil. Where do I start? keith

Hi Keith, my collegs are being right but now you have to change tappet cover gasket.That will stop the oil consumption.Change the spark plugs as well.Please.
