Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Judging from the time, I guess you live in Europe. I am not sure where you can get a scan of the OBD II connector in your car, but that is what we need to diagnose.

Need to replace the Oxygen sensor on the exhaust. This is a maintenance issue, every modern car will eventually need this to be done. Not very difficult or technical, so not necessary to be ripped off by dealer, find a cheaper mechanic.

Oil pressure light went on on my 2000 audi a4 1,8t. What should i do?


could be sender or pump. do not run the engine until you're sure you have a good pump. Does it blink on and off--coming on mainly at idle? This would be normal for an old engine. If it stays on and the pump is bad, you will ruin your engine. You can try replacing the sending uniot, as that is cheap compared to the pump, but don't run it long to check new sender. If new sender stays red, shut down and replace pump.

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.

Indication lamp shining


That's the motor-management warning light. Meaning: serious errors are being detected by the motor-management computer (= ECU). You should have a dealer readout those ECU faultcodes using VAGCOM to determine the cause a.s.a.p, before (more) harm is done to the engine.

Please be aware that your motor could also switch to "failsafe" mode when too many severe errors are detected, meaning it's terribly slow to drive and turbo-pressure is nearly non-existing.

Check out the engine and gearbox mountings. With the engine cold, try and rock the engine backwards and forwards. Have someone check each mounting in turn.

2001 Passat -


I have the same make and model. Overall a really nice car. I was driving down the freeway yesterday when the car jolted and I lost the gear lighting on my dash. The car drove in 'limp' mode the remainder of the way home. I started it up this morning and it ran fine for about 15 minutes then it went back to 'limp' mode and the dashboard gear indicatior lights went out again. Research indicates this is the Transmission control module which is located under the passanger side floorboard. In my case there is moisture in this area
