Not sure where a cheap Rubber elbow is located on a passat. But do take off the coil covers. They are located under the engine cover. They are the 4 square caps. They come off with a allen wrench i believe 5mm. Then pull them off. Due this 1 at a time. Once off look down the hole with a flashlight.
And look at the rubber surrounding the coil. Their should be no moisture.1999 volkswagen passat - spellcheck.gif If their is moisture try blowing it out with compressed air.

Check your vacuum hose to brake booster. it could be the "cheap" rubber elbow or something in between. mine was recently cracked and I had a 300, 302, and 304 error.

good luck!

How to fix diagnostic code for 1999 vw passat po304 po305 po306


Hi. You have misfires on cylinders 4, 5 and 6. If there are no faults on cylinder 1, 2 and 3 then I would check the power to the left bank injectors. Also check spark plugs and ht leads. If there are running issues then this should be an easy fix. If the faults are very intermitant then it can be a bit tricky to isolate.

Volkswagen passat wagon 2004 codes p0300 p0302 p0304 p0011 runs fine


You have random misfire codes as well as misfires detected on cylinders #2 and #4. P0011 is likely the root cause of the misfire being detected
P0011 VOLKSWAGEN - 'A' Camshaft Position Timing Over-Advanced Or System Performance problems.

Possible causes- Dirty engine oil
- Low engine oil level
- Camshaft actuator circuit open or shorted
- Camshaft actuator circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty camshaft actuator

There may be a factory bulletin on this code, check with the VW dealer on that. Possible defective Camshaft actuator.

What does the check engine flashing mean on a 99 vw bettle?


typically any flashing light is a misfire, which could create cat convertor failure.
codes will be something with 300 via 301 cyl 1, 302 cyl 2 etc. Many things can
cause this via plugs, wires, coolant temp sensor, maf and so on. Suggest getting
it checked out asap.

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.

CEL light flashing-shuddering when idle. 03 passat 1.8 Turbo. Thinking its an air leak somewhere? Can hear air but can't figure out where its coming from...


A flashing cel indicates misfiring. A common problem is a bad ignition coil. The easiest route for diagnosis is the check the trouble codes(autozone and some other parts stores will scan for free, or an OBDII code reader is not too expensive to buy). The code should tell you which cylinder is misfiring(PO301 means cyl #1, 302 cyl #2, etc). Once you know which it is, swap the ignition coils around. If you have a #1 misfire, swap coils 1 and 4, clear the codes, then check it again. If the misfire moves, you know you've got a bad coil. If the misfire is air or fuel related, as with an intake leak, other codes should come up as well as the misfire.

Im getting a trouble code P0305 on my volkswagon passat pls advise?


The code means a misfire on cylinder number 5.

Check for loose or damaged plug wires, and change all of your plugs.

1999 Passat bogs under load and seems to be misfiring. Could it be the fuel filter or the ignition sensor and how do you test/replace?


very unlikely to be fuel filter. misfires on petrol engines are usual down to the ignition system,possibly Plugs or leads if fitted. plugs should be replaced every 40,000 miles, not an expensive item either.
