Go to autozone they have a free OBD 2 code reader. Start by finding out what that code is. It might be something as simple as an O2 sensor. Hope this helps.

Check the distributor shaft. They have a history of developing finite cracks that causes the condition your describing. Let me know if I can help you with any other info.

When were the sparkplugs,airfilter changed,is there damp in the coil packs or the seals worn allowing in damp.The maf sensor(mounted in airbox top) may be faulty or the throttle throat may need cleaning.Fuel contamination can play a part, how old is the fuel filter as they should be replaced every 2 years.Check that all vacuum pipes are secure and not cracked as leaks can add to the problem.

It may just need a tune up (new plugs/wires/fuel and air filters). On the other hand it may bad fuel to air ratio. Why your check engine light doesn't come on is a little odd. You might want to check your O2 sensors, just my .02.

First thing to do is to get it somewhere/someone to read possible DTCs from ecu with VAG-COM or some other compatible tool.
There are many things to check from the ECU even if there are no DTCs stored. Like Engine coolant temperature values, O2 sensor voltages, Throttle body position sensor values...

1990 ford bronco idles fine when you accelerate the gas loses power and backfires through the intake

Fuel delivery problem, not enough fuel on acceleration could cause backfires. Many things cause backfires, mechanical and electronic. I need more info to give a better diagnosis. Did the problem happen all of a sudden or has the vehicle been running crappy for awhile.

My vw passat 2000 wont start sometimes and when it does start and I give it lots of gas the revs seem to drop and it loses power, but if i accelerate slowly it seems ok, also after driving for maybe 10...

sounds like you\'re not getting enough fuel; disconnect the fuel line under the hood and put it into a container and crank the engine or just turn on the ignition for a couple of seconds to activate the fuel pump; it should be pissing like a race horse; if it\'s not, then you have a clogged filter or a weak pump.

My 2000 passat just started making a loud noise when i accelerate and it seems like its moving slower in acceleration and reving higher

my good friend I believe the solution I give might be not good for you as to what you state It sounds that you are loosing your automatic gear box. Have you ever changed the oil & filter of your Gear box? If not that was the reason.
