Volkswagen Passat QuestionsRefine by vehicle
been having to add oil, don't notice much of a functional change since the light came on. I had 2 mechanics say yes, 1 said no, and 1 said maybe that will fix all the codes.
Timing chain is off track
my husband jumped it this morning at at 1pm it was completely dead
If I get my water pump replaced do I have to have my timing belt replaced as well.
multiple warning lights on but no problems on any.(parking, abs, tire PSI, brakes, driver side headlight out. passenger headlight low beam only, cruise control wont set.
repair shop advised the motor is ruined. and quoted me 4951.00 for new motor and timing belt. Claimed car oil filter wasnt changed yet I had 2 oil changes recently. The oil pan showed metal shards and very black. Did the oil change place charge for synthetic oil and a new filter and yet NEVER put synthetic oil or filter? Is the an accurate quote ? Help!
Normally, the car runs perfectly with the engine, but before hand, when we got the car a couple of months ago, it came with a bad master brake cylinder and that needed to be replaced, after it was, the shifting was very late at times and we had to use the paddle gears. My question is, could the late shifting and engine running hard be connected? Or are they both separate problems? And how could you fix them?
I noticed that my shifting became a little weird, i.e., slower. Then later everything was OK. Do you think this could be a fuse problem?
Ive had my car sitting for a quit long time already i need help!
I was told it had three cam sensors I've changed the two n the back but I don't know how to get to the other one

That's all I have, I'm looking at the car to maybe buy it.
I bought this used Passat and it was running ok and now it wants to drop back the rpms at about 1800 to slow idle. I can't even drive it around the parking lot now cause it keeps cutting out at that rpm.
no compression and fluid in oil
Driving on highway hit a rough patch of road. Epc and Check engine light came on. Check engine light went off but EPC stayed on. Car starting loosing combustion, push accelerator to flow but could feel car losing power, turned car off, car would start then turn off if drive to drive.
The kick/jerk from 1-2 gear is felt more during times when the car is not "hot" yet. So mornings and such. Theres a very slight jerk going from 2>3 gear too. Reading up online, it sounds like there is a software update for this type of issue? VW service bulletin issues Dec. 22 ,2011. #10043286
Codes 01314...00446 come up. Car hesitates at low RPMs. I will replace the PVC. low voltage may suggest generator but all lights works. It has a new battery. Initially when starting it clicks but starts after I pump the gas pedal.
I change the battery and the start the car then stop to remove the key become difficulty
Dealership wants $2,200 to replace the POD. Any other options besides a dealership to do this work?
The corner of the coil pack broke off and the spark plug was ejected and goo is coming out.
I have been getting water in my car when it rains. The water is mostly on the passenger side floor and goes back to floor in back floor passenger side. I think the drain hoses are either clogged or not attached. Car is smelling moldy and sometimes windows don't go up when I use electric windows and also sun roof doesn't always close when I want it too.Car seems to be running hot at times I can feel the heat under the dash area while driving. get flooded every time it rains.
When using key to engage alarm, my key has stopped working leading my thought to be the internal battery needs to be replaced. What battery is needed & is this a service I can handle without fuss? Or must VW dealership attend to this to avoid complication?
I am wondering if my car is totaled. It will also have some other things necessary to fix from the wreck.
everything turns on but my engine. I tried to him I start it but still nothing... before there were no problems just minor over heating. I drove about 16 miles turned my car off and it started fine. I drove another mile turned it off to go in store and came back out and it wouldn't turn over. it makes no noise at all. everything else turns on just the engine will not turn over..
There isn't any small part to glue on the glass till its ready for the mirror to be replaced??
My engine bucks forward and backward when shifted into forward or reverse. Also a loud clank and engine movement at 2500 or 3000 rpms when it shifts gears. Changed the rear mount and passenger side mount. Still lots of engine movement.
Steering wheel shakes then jerk hard to the right Happens periodically
