This could be a fuel filter issue, but more than likely it sounds like a broken down / clogged catalytic converter. to confirm, have an exhaust back pressure test performed. this is a specialized gauge that threads into the oxygen sensor fittings and will tell you if there is excessive restriction. if you plan on keeping this car for a while (more than a year) i recommend using a genuine GM replacement, as the cheaper ones do not last long at all. in any even, it is good idea to change the fuel filter first. good luck!

Check engine light came on and was blinking... the car was vibrating/pulsating and had a delayed acceleration.. turned car off and then back on and it seemed to help but check engine light remained on, but...


A blinking check engine light indicates one or more cylinders is currently missfiring. You will have to scan the computer and get the code to determine which cylinder it was. Then you can start you diagnostics to figure out why it was missfiring.

Car lost power and started putting out black


The rubber pipe feeding air from the intercooler to the bottom of the EGR valve is probably split - this was the problem on mine - exact same symptoms!

2000 passat v6; check engine light+spuddering when accelerating


good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.

Titan engine light


If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute the check engine light will reset itself and should go off. The only thing is that if there is a problem that the computer detects after you reconnect the battery and start it up , the check engine light will come back on. If it does the best thing to do is take it to a shop and have it checked for codes and see what is causing the problem.
Best of luck and let me know if this helps you.

Guys, what you are experiencing is the car built warning system. When your engine light blinks it indicates a Major Problem has occurred or is occurring in the engine. When this occurs the cars goes into a "safe," mode which means all power is cut by at least half in an effort to save the car from more major damage. You can take your VW to any large chain autoparts store (autozone, advance, etc) a lot of them are offering a free engine diagnosis. Do this if possible to see where the problems maybe coming from and ways to fix them.
