DTC's P2096; P0139-02; P0137-02.

car is iddling very low n its shuttin off

i pull the hood release and that pops then go to pull plastic lever and nothing cant get the hood open

now check engine light is on and stays on

Some one told me it might just be the oil filter and a sensor. The oil does need changed. Nothing is leaking, smoking or smells like it is burning. Can I drive it to get the oil changed. I just want to know if I can drive it to get the oil changed and see if that is all the problem is. I can't afford to get it towed for something this simple. This is the first and only time it has happened. I keep a close eye on oil level, never uses much oil at all.

I removed the hose adjusted the valve open more and the enginge light went away is this going to be ok for fuel milage and operation

The dealer has said two need to be replaced, and it will cost a total of $750. Just got done replacing the heater core.

Repair pal screen says yes, but my dealer service advisor says no. He claims it is direct flow to the heater core, and there is no heater control valve.

My car is using oil and there are no signs of external leaks. The dealer replaced the egr valve but it didn't fix the problem. In 4 months it had almost no oil in it. What is causing this? When you have the car running and remove the dip stick or oil cap, it idles rough. Is that normal?

new thermostat,water pump.

We added brake fluid but it does not seem to be getting into the actual Reservoir tank. We poured it into the top but it does not go down into the Reservoir tank, it just sits in the spout where you fill it

The power was out in this car for a long time. I have that light on my dash plus an airbag light. Everything else has corrected itself less those two lights and no power to the steering. I assume it is a module, but which one and where is it? Any suggestions are welcome.

tHE LIGHT COMES ON AND SAYS i HAVE LOW OIL PRESSURE, The OIl was very recenely changed andis clean. Does anyone know what might cause this or how to fix it.

it is a 2.8 V6 so the whole front end has to removed to get to the alternator. so since the car is at 83,000, should i go ahead and have them replace the timing belt/water pump since they are already in there.

for standard mountain time

2002 Passat GLS 1.8T Sedan - $61k miles
Reason for Check Engine Light (#1, 2, 3)
#1 Diagnostic Procedure 5052 - Bank 1, Sensor #2 internal resistance too high
- Replace O2 Sensor #2 =$199 parts + $200 labor = $400 plus tax
#2 System too lean - all vacuum hoses are broke $24 parts + $200 Labor = $224 + Tax
#3 Also Misfire in cylinder #3 and #4 - spark plugs are wasted $18x4= $72 parts + $100 Labor = $172 + Tax

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS:
#4 Coolant bottle is completely dirty, needs a new bottle and a flush - $290
#5 40k Tune Up = $750 (which is odd because I'm at $61k)

This is the first and only time it has happened>

this is the only time it has done it

How will you know the miles?

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM

Well the Engine wasn't holding water cause of a leak in the hose from the water pump to the engine, I drove the car with the temp. flexuating and having to often stop and refill with water. Now my car wouldn't start 2 days ago, I went & had the battery tested and charged, the car still wouldn't start a friend helped me push start it! I had a mechanic thats near me look at it and he said it was the starter, well then my car was parked across from his shop, He saw me at my car and asked, why do i push start just turn with key so i tried it and it turned over,Didn't start.He said "You see these hands i been mechanic for long time". So he said " You need gas why mess with ur car just go get gas" so I got gas Tried to start again and still it turned over but not on, Then he said " It must be the fuel pump". Now 2 days b4 i push started it and it drove fine the fuel pump wasn't the problem then.

3 weeks ago the car started shaking. and in the last week the check engine light came on and the car will no longer move into gears. Does this mean the transmission is completely shot? Also the back seat behind the passenger side gets completely soaked. Do you know what this comes from????

In February 2010 at 114,000 miles, I had my valve cover gaskets and tensioners replaced because the valves were seeping oil causing a burning smell. Just 17 months and 8,000 miles later, a burning smell has returned. It's not as bad as it was, and I can't smell it (yet) while I am driving.

Are my valve cover gaskets bad AGAIN? If I ignore it, what is the downside? Will I eventually damage the engine? How long (time and miles) do I have? I only drive it 100-200 miles per month and one 2,200 mile trip per year.

You can smell the fumes in the cab.

I am going to repair the fan on the passat 2.8 V6 myself. I just want to confirm that the radiator fan is electric (it looks like it is)?
Any particular things I should know or is it straight forward?

i have tried everything i have no idea what wrong please help

Car all of sudden wouldn't start about 2 weeks ago, finally got my car to a shop that specialises in imports and they advised that it's probably the ECM but want to run a diagnostics one more time.
