Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat
My 2003 vw passat w8 awd just went completelydead on me. it gave me a code about the camshaft position sensor bank 2 but I changed all 4 of the camshafts sensors and it still pops up the same and it still wont start but still cranks
Those are known to stretch the timing chains once they get up in miles to the point where the engine goes out of mechanical crankshaft to camshaft timing enough not start. In order to confirm this is the issue a person would have to turn the crankshaft to cyl. 1 top dead center and see if the camshaft timing marks line up where they should. I can elaborate if this is something you'd like to do yourself.

timing belt is off by a tooth or two. you probably didn\'t have to replace the coolant sensor; that code sets whenever the sensor is disconnected and the ignition is turned on; and it needs to be reset by disconnecting the battery or with a code reader. anyway, the crank/ cam sensors are out of sync. if you\'ve got the twin cam engine, they are a royal pain to get the belt to lay properly on the two cams.

Testimonial: "got it in time but it is giving a p0016 code, and at around 30 mph the rev limiter is coming on"
Crank shaft sensor
Remove the driver side rear ignition coil bolts. Reposition the coil. Disconnect the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor electrical connector. # Use penetrating oil and allow the oil to soak around the CKP sensor prior to removing the sensor. You're looking at left, rear side of engine.
front side of engine on the drives side about half way up the timing cover, not hard to get to.
