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 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?
