2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS 1.8L turbo from North America
My check engine light and EPC light comes on. There have been several times I tried starting my car and it won't start. It turns over, just won't fire up. Then when it does start, it won't rev whatsoever. I can put it in gear, press the gas pedal to the floor and the car won't move one bit. Then I turn the car off, wait a minute, and turn the car back on and it starts like normal.
Then when I'm driving and start slowing down or coming to a stop, the car drops idle, like it wants to die out, for a second and the back to normal when I pick up speed.
I found a leak in one of my vacuum hoses and repaired that. The EPC light went off, but only comes on if the car has a hard time starting. I know that the hose was the problem for the EPC because that light is constantly on and now goes off.
As for the check engine light, I don't know what to do...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
