It's an automatic wagon model, only has 135k miles on it. Was working just fine but was sometimes hard to start but never failed me. Last time it ran, I drove it on the freeway and at one point it began losing power, I slowed down a little, it seemed to even out and I got to my destination. About an hour later, I went to restart it and it would turn over but refuse to fire. It hasn't started since.
I start it up after priming the fuel pump a few times. Than it will act like it is out of fuel and it dies. I replaced the fuel filter has new battery and newish alternator. I have not put a code tester on it yet.
I have just been told my Passat is a sinking ship and will soon need a new engine and a/t. I have over $ 5000 in it and before I write it off, I would consider replacing the worn out engine and a/t. My other avenue of escape is to try and sell it for parts as the interior and body panels are in excellent condition. I need suggestions. Thank you.
at speeds over 100 km an hour (it seems)i loose power to the engine for a few seconds at a time please help
