2001 VW Passat V6 4 motion. When slowing down to a stop the car stalls. Sometimes there is an issue starting after the stall and sometimes there is not. Found ATF level was low and filled to proper level....

nothing to do with the plugs
it is a problem in the transmission from servo/ solenoid not down shifting the ratios as you skow down
run the fault codes and look for TR sensor , TCM problem or pressure sensor problem
nothing wrong with the transmission but if you have not a transmission oil chnage done in the last 60,000 klms , that woukd be a good idea as dorty oil will hunder reatio changes
have it checked by an accredited professional transmission shop

I have experienced the same issue in my Pathfinder that has the same VG30E engine. I would recommend that you change your plugs to the NGK Vgrooove Copper plugs, or go with the iridium series. If you are running anything other than that, you are not going to receive the intended spark for the engine. I took someone's recommendation and used the Bosch platinum plug, and let me tell you that was a huge mistake, I lost power, performance, and the plugs fouled out causing the engine to miss.

There is a fuel filter and an in-tank screen filter. Both are scheduled for replacement at 48 months or 80,000km, according to my owners manual. There is also a charcoal canister that should be inspected at 24 months or 40,000km.

92 max
I own a 92 max 370 kms runs good but one day just cuts out while doing about 30 km, I pull over i can start it no problem but when I touch the pedal to accelerate the car stalls out.

It got worse to the point of sputtering on the highway , sometimes i could keep it alive by working the pedal but others would slow down and stall out.

I have changed the fuel filter and plugs seemed to make it a bit better but still stalling. I ran it in my driveway for 10 mins on idle then it stalls out

Is this the fuel pump??
