I just bought a 03 vw passat 1.8 t 4 door sedan. and it idles rough when i put it in gear, and the check engine light is on, the code it came up with was mis fire on 1 and 2 pistons. I'am pretty sure the turbo inst working either so could it be the waste gate or something different.

    Turbo wastegate is not your problem! The best thing you can do is have mechanic check this out for you, we can only guess at the trouble and be wrong every time!
