Volkswagen Passat QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My fuse 6 on my passat keeps blowing everytime I put in a new fuse.
Usually before it comes on the can won't start until about the 2nd or 3rd try and when it does the engine is very loud. I would turn the engine off and start it again then the engine goes back to normal and the EPC light would go off...what is the problem?
All i know is one day the car worked, and now it won't start. The battery died and I charged it with my other car and tried to start the vehicle, the emobolizer came on. I spent time trying to figure that out and finally got past it but the car still won't start. I ran a code scan and it came back tcm error code p0864. I changed the crank position sensor and still doesn't come on. I'm not getting any spark and I believe I'm not getting gas either. I checked all the fuses. This problem boggles me and would really like to have it running again.
Hi and thanks for your help! Car is used and no manual. Is there a rest button I need to find?
It turns on but goes right off. These are all the codes that came up P0706
It turns on but goes right off.
Why does my Volkswagen Passat 2001 seem to act like it wants to jump out of gear after applying the gas when my light turns green, scary?
I lost the button to open my gas door is there another way to open it... My button is in between the two front seats not on the door
My button isn't on my door it's in between the two front seats most videos talk about it being on the door.
I put a new heater core thermostat is good antifreeze level is good the car is not overheating but for some reason I'm not getting circulation through the heater core I know you get air pockets but I left the reservoir open overnight and the antifreeze went down a bit I added more I even rent a car into a heated up to normal temperature and I tried bleeding the heater core and there's no no antifreeze and there's no pressure in the line help please
Just changed my water pump and timing belt. Now light goes on STOP CHECK COOLANT level but my coolant is full.
Turned car off one day started the next and the odometer was 10k over what it was the day before. Trip odometer never reset and is the mileage it should be, any idea's? It is at the dealership now and the tech of course says this is the first case he ever heard of. TIA for the help
Bearing went out blowing the oil seal in turbocharger. Blowing out blue smoke from exhaust and using around 2 quarts of oil every 5 miles or so. After capping the oil feed line... the transmission is shifting very slow..now won't shift easily from 3rd to 4th...or from 4th to Drive? Does the "brain box" need to be reset?
I can't get to a code reader. So what can I try at home?
it has a 2.5l engine and is a USA version.
Does anyone know if there are recalls for Passats? Volkswagen is not helping in the situation, does anyone have any information? Thanks.
My car also tells me to STOP oil pressure is high turn off engine
1999 Volkswagon Passat wagon 1.8 turbo Has been running great. Got gas yesterday (not empty,,about 1/4 tank left), started car, went about 20 yards. Car died. Would not start again. Sounded like it wanted to a couple times. Sounded like it was not getting gas. I put a new pump in it. Still not starting. I disconected fuel pump from engine side, it is pumping out fine. Removed plugs, poured some gas, put plugs back in, still no go. Put spark tester to coils. All lighted up. Used tester and put plugs on the end, 3 of four did not seem to light up. One (back towards firewall) lit up well. Battery is at 11.7 now. motor spins, no go. Checked fuse for fuel pump. Ok. Ideas?
