This code indicates that you have a faulty secondary air injection system. Basically this is a system in which pumped air is allowed into the exhaust system to help burn off any residual fuel droplets when the engine is warming up and thereby reduce hydrocarbon emissions. The 'injection of air' (opening of the valve) is by vacuum supplied by a thermally resistant over-braided vacuum line. Find your combi 'air injection' valve on the exhaust manifold and then check the integrity of the length of over-braided vacuum line. There is a good chance that the fault is merely a leak in this line (a poor end fitting) and this in turn is failing to supply the necessary vacuum to open the valve to allow pumped air into the exhaust. Hope this helps point you in the right direction.

1999 VW Passat 1.8 turbo Code #3 cylinder misfire. Replaced coil and all plugs, still have misfire...???


Coils and plugs are not the only things that can cause misfires. Misfires can be caused by vacuum leaks, low compression, faulty fuel injectors, clogged EGR ports (on vehicles with individual ports for each cylinder), blown head gaskets, burned valves...you can spend a LOT of money on parts by just going in and replacing things without diagnosing WHY the cylinder is misfiring.

Replacement turbo chargers


My best advice to you would be to check www.passatworld.com Look into the forums and use the search function. There is an unbelievable amount of information with just a little bit of searching. And there may be some turbos for sale on there as well. If you can't find anything in your price range, check out a chip... slightly cheaper and just as much power gain as you would from a larger turbo. You will have to chip it if you drop in a larger turbo anyhow. Hope this helps!

EPS and Check engine light on 2004 Volkswagen Passat Turbo


I note that you posted your question 14 Feb 09, so happy belated Valentine's Day! Anyway, I own a 2004 VW Passat 1.8 and am currently facing the same problem (EPC light and check engine light on) and subsequently, I coded it out, which was P0322. I took my other vehicle (more reliable) into the VW dealership in Olympia Washington. I was going to replace the EPC sensor, which typically handles what is sent to the car's brain, telling it how much gas it needs to run. However, the technicians at the dealership told me to code it out before investing any money without knowing exactly what should be replaced.

I took the code and determined the "crank sensor" was defective. If you call around, you should be quoted anywhere between $48 and $90 respectfully. If your VW was lurching like it was missing for a split second at a usual speed, or died at stops, then I would say you were experiencing the same problem I was having. Hopefully, this will fix your problem? The part is pretty inexpensive, but I think what VW charges to replace the sensor, is highway robbery. Anyone in your family mechanically inclined? Good luck!

VW Passat turbo broken


Pricing for the replacement will vary widely based on who does the work, but you'll typically find better prices at an independent shop than at a dealership. When you choose an indie shop though, make SURE they're a Euro specialist. You honestly don't want a guy working on your high-tech turbo engine when he spends his days wrenching on Mustangs and Chevy trucks. As for whether you have to do it - yes you do. The turbo is an integral part of the car and the car won't run well at all (and will likely degrade further) if you don't fix it.
