Check your spark plugs. If you take them out and the plug is fried, you should replace them. I had a similar problem with a misfire a few months ago, and ever sinceI changed the spark plugs, wires and air filter, the car runs great now.

Hi

If the coolant temperature sensor is of the 4 wire type then these are a common failure on VW's.

  • You really need not worry if its from VW. Just tell the managers that the job was done in an imperfect fashion.
  • If you have used any other mechanics to do it then, VW Passat of yours can't be fixed with cheap expense
  • Please tell me about your location and I will help you, Insha Allah

Coolant leaking vw Passat 1.6 1999 heat on with fan, window fogs.


is the floor board on passenger side wet???If yes it's the heater core, which should be accessible by removing the glove box. Did u check the oil, to see if it 's milky??? some times on the vw of any kind, they spring a slow leak on the head gasket which could cause the abnormal starting in the morning. Which then, as the engine warms up causes the gasket to swell up and seal itself untill the engine cools completely off again. Eventually the gasket will completely fail and u'll have to bring it to a shop or get a repair manual to replace the head gasket.

2002 VW Passat fuel type


If the engine requires Prem fuel I would use it, the problems of not using it are possible piston damage. decreased power and lower fuel economy, when regular is used the knock sensor pulls the timing back to reduce knocking, this i where the lower MPG comes in and power problems, if knock can not be eliminated then the pistons may be damaged. I have a Corvette that uses Prem fuel, if I run regular I loose 3 MPG, so the trade for lower cost fuel is cancelled out by the loss of MPG.
