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!

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?

I was told it had three cam sensors I've changed the two n the back but I don't know how to get to the other one

I change the battery and the start the car then stop to remove the key become difficulty

My car has been through 2 "certified" mechanics, including my local Audi dealership. As well as myself trying to fix the problem. My Passat misfires constantly, I've replaced spark plugs, ignition coils, and the air filter. Audi replaced the connections to my coils. (I did my repairs before taking it to Audi). The last thing I can think of is a failing ECU. If there is another option I can look into please let me know.

I have replaced the ignition coils, spark plugs, and the air filter. It was running fantastic (engine light remained on) until I accelerated quickly. I toke it to my local auto-zone, where they plug in the handheld computer and it came up with 9 codes. 3 were for the misfires, one relating the mass air flow sensor. The problem seems to be worse after 2,000 RPM and gets slightly better if above 3,000. But when I come to a stop the car will jerk back and forth. And be visibly shaking.

Shut off engine ,forgot something in home came out started eng. It stalled.
Restarted eng. Stalled,tried to start again,didn't turn over at all.Tried to remove key fob from ignition, wouldn't release. Still stuck in ignition. Tried all
Recommend fixes,only thing that works is Alarm and radio???

Aproxametly how much would this repair be and would it be worth it for a passa y t with 110,000 mi, 2006 a d seems like nothing else is wrong with it

What is the procedure to re learn my 2006 vw passat 2.0t? Battery was disconnected and now no start. No parts replaced, nothing taking out. Battery has a complete charge. Turns over nothing else. I can hear fuel pump engage.

and the check engine light came on the nest day. Went to Autozone and there were no codes. How do I get light off?

The epc light come on

My car died and it will not start any idea what it could be
