Hey
If the car is running ok then you probably have either low catalyst efficiency or a faulty or dirty oxygen sensor.
If the car feels like it is losing a cylinder or two then you could have a faulty coil pack(s).
Either way, you need to have the codes read out to determine what the problem actually is before you start throwing parts and money at the car.

Check engine light in my '07 VW passat 2.0t is on. Got codes P2015 (twice) and P2008 (twice) and EVAP system code P0456. What are these codes? Thx Phyllis


P2015 - Intake manifold runner position
P2008 - Intake manifold runner control circuit
P0456 - Evaporative Emissions System - Small leak detected

None of these are urgent, just annoying. And common problems with Audi's and VW. P2015 and P2008 were likely due to a software/sensor glitch, and did not necessarily require a replacement throttle flap motor. P0456 could be due to loose gas cap, but also was likely caused by carbon contamination from the evap cannister. I have all 3 codes on my 06 passat, and just live with them. I would estimate around 1000k conservatively to track down and fix from dealership.

Abs light stays on and i need to know how to do the clutch on a 2oo1 passat a good friend needs vw help we are a front end shop and there are no good shops to fix these things . also has check engine light...


ABS sensor or sensors have failed , cost about $40 each and need to have a reset done on a VW coded laptop.

Quite a big undertaking putting a clutch in a Passat not to be tackled lightly and without workshop facilities

With 172K miles the whole car must be on the edge of the cliff , think you are due to part company with it or dig very deep into your pockets for a fix

VW Passat 2001: Exhaust emission warning lamp flashing. Manual says 'blinks if the catalyst can be damaged by misfires'. Any suggestions?


"Check engine light" EMISSIONS WORKSHOP! Do you want to shut it off??? After reading all of the negative comments and how much money Passat owners have spent due to this manufacturer's problem, I am going to save the day and save you $$$ by showing you how to "reset" the diagnostic computer which makes the "emissions workshop-check engine light come on! (This is the same thing the VW dealer will charge you hundreds of dollars to do.) To turn off the "Check Engine" (Emissions Workshop) light, simply follow these 5 basic steps:
1. Pop open the hood.
2. Insert the key in the ignition and turn without starting the engine until all of the dash indicators light and warning tones sound.
3. With the key still in the ignition, use a 10mm wrench or socket to loosen and completely disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery. Wait about 60 seconds before reconnecting.
4. Re-connect and tighten the negative (-) cable to the battery and close the hood.
5. Start the engine. THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT HAS GONE OUT!
If the light stays on, then there really is a problem. If it has turned off, be glad, but don't be surprised to see it come on again in a few weeks. If it comes on again, simply follow steps 1-5. Remember... This quick repair is for those who just can't stand looking at this light or afford to visit VW every time this light comes on. If you feel the need to service the vehicle, service the vehicle. I hope this has made your "NIGHTMARE" a little easier!!!

2001 passat has loss of power, shaking and check engine light flashing


i had this problem on my 2002 passat. it was the ignition coils. first set were replaced in 2002 as a vw recall. second set (at 122K miles) were relatively inexpensive to fix. just one failed but it made the engine run really rough - my mechanic was able to move it from one cylinder to the next to get the problem to repeat.

2002 Passat won't start


We had the same problem. It was an expensive fix--there apparently was a problem with the onboard computer that would periodically lock out the ignition circuit. Felt just like a bad starter solenoid--but the part cost $800, plus labor, to replace. Ouch.

Engine warning light and engine vibration 2002 VW Passat


The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple

Fault p1556 p1144 17552 on a 2003 passat.


air filters cost less than 10 euro, replace them every 10,000 miles and you will never have a problem. Also if you use a fuel additive such as "DIPTANE" you will clean up on emmissions, and the environment, and fuel bills. another cheap fix I had from driving vw's was, GET A TOYOTA. CHEAP AS CHIPS. also just as reliable, without as much hassle. VW like to be AUDI and charge you more than MERCEDES
