You need to have your head gasket replaced. Take it to your local mechanic.

I've a 1999 VW passat that misfires and has no power.any clues?


Could use some more data such as:

All the time?
Only hot?
Only when first starts?
Only when wet?
Did it start after after buying cheap gas or adding gas from an old gas can?
How long since last tune up?


I would suspect bad ign wire leaking high voltage or it is not getting to the spark plug OR a fouled plug. Sometimes you can hear the spark SNAPPING to ground or see it at night. Often you can get bad wires to show up by spraying them with a mist of water from an old spray bottle and uptting the car in gear with light acelleration. Make SURE to NOT stand in front of the car while somone is jazzing the gas!!!

Been a while since I have worked on a VW but most often it is plugs and wires.


Hope this helped,

Broken vaccume lines could also give you a skip and poor power in some situations.

Got a vw passat 1.9 tdi got oil in water but no water in the oil,changed the oil cooler which was recomended.still finding oil in water is it just still in the water system or a deeper problem


you could have oil in the system for years,as it sticks to the waterways/pipes,so shows as a "slick"Just check you levels every week, to make sure nothing is untoward.

Engine ceased VW 2004 passat 4cyl. 59k, multiply oil changes from local garage, VW too expensive engine ceased. called VW they want to change me to see the car. What shoud lI do?


Let them see the car.

Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.

It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.

You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak

Oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat


Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.

The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.

Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.

You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.

The head gasket is another story.

Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.

Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.

Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.

If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.

If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve

If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.


If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.
