    I will start my 2003 Passat 1.8 T and a few minutes of driving the check engine light will come on and start blinking and the engine seems rough and somewhat like it is shaking. When I approach a stop, feels as though it might stall. Any thoughts?

I had the same problem. Then after a week of rough starts, the car got really shaky and the engine light was blinking. It turned out one of the engine coils had died; only 3 cylinders were firing. Solution: replaced the coil and all 4 spark plugs, cleaned fuel injectors. Now it runs real smooth right at ignition.

Shudders, hesitates then stalls during acceleration


how often do you keep it tuned up? my 03 impala did the same thing due to burnt out spark plugs and a burnt spark plug wire.

Check engine light/engine stalling, related?


GET AN AUTOPARTS STORE TO READ THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CODE. OXYGEN SENSORS ARE COMMON CAUSES. DON'T SEND RAW GAS INTO THE CATALYTIC CONVERTER. IT WILL BE COSTLY TO REPLACE.

Truck stalls and check engine light comes on this happens at no certaint time. when the light goes off it starts. sometimes it shuts down while driving and starts back on its own.


is this a diesel or a gas job? has it been tune up lately? if its a diesel I recommend pulling apart the exhaust backpressure sensor on the front of the engine which screws into a tube which goes to your RH exhaust manifold. If its full of carbon and the tube is plugged up, that will cause it to stall erratically and eventually when fully plugged off, it stalls or may not even starts consistently.

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.
