#75 of 84 Re: 04 1.8L Turbo Passat Idling Issues- Misfiring? [altair4]

What happened? What codes did you have?
My 98 Passat 1.8L just had the exact same thing happen. The #1 cylinder is not firing but a new coil did not fix the problem. Something wrong with the CPU according to a local shop in NAPLES ITALY who claim to be familiar with this problem. Any recommendations? Thanks.

I have 96 2.0 with a no start. It will crank fine but no spark. Although when you cycle the key on & off the coil will spark once each time you turn the off.

Has anyone experienced an engine surge when driving a diesel passat, I'm sure I wasn't dreaming, only happened once when on a country run probably doing about 100klms.

Renato - did the car lose power during those 6 months? If so, I bet you need to have your throttle body adjusted. I had something similar happen when my wife left the lights on at the airport. Battery was bone dead, and when jump started, car idled very rough and would run rough but never get above 30 - 35 MPH going herky jerky the whole way.
I found someone with VAG COM software who performed a throttle body adjustment procedure, and all is now well.
Might be worth a try.

when i start in morning it does'nt ref properly sounds like it's going to cut out and back fire put your foot down and nothing and all of a sudden it will kick in go up to 1000'2000 rpm and then back down until warm then not to bad but still does it now and then when you put your foot down.
