After driving 1,900 miles on a road trip
pulled into the garage at home and it
showed Inspection Now on the dash,??
We did get the 30,000 mile oil change
before we left. The car ran great the
whole time.
I have a 2013 VW Passat TDI se
The light just came on last night

Car is part of VW dieselgate so need to do
Repair but I don't want to spend a lot of money
My car isn't wanting tystart and the alarm is going off even though I unlock it with my key and it still gets triggered and does a dead battery have a part in this whole problem
My car's coolant scale is buck up and down after 5-10 minutes when I was driving
Took car to get timing belt & water pump changed. Car had no warning lights on b4 but when I picked it up it had check engine light & EPC light on and acceleration was very weak.
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?
