2004 Volkswagen Passat - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

As we tell everyone else who comes on here with warning lights: When there's a warning light on, that means a trouble code is stored in the computer. Don't ask us to guess what caused the light to go on when all you have to do is get the trouble codes read.

run the fault codes and look for PCM bus communication problems
could be a bad ground problem

Yes indeed... (suggestions)

Get your CODES read... Preferably at an EXHAUST
shop... They (in my opinion) are much less likely
to try and sell you those OXYGEN SENSORS you
will be "offered" at AUTOZONE... (useless).

OXYGENS SENSORS seldom make the news...
like thermometers in FLU-season: they merely
report the news...

A BLOCKED exhaust system will perform exactly
as you have described...!!

Check out all the prices of all the PARTS you can
throw away MONEY trying to surround the trouble
a CATALYTIC converter/muffler COST will pale by
comparison... (go to rockauto.com or AMAZON).

In my humble opinion

Take it back and make them fix it, if they refuse sue them in small claims and/or contact your state's consumer protection office (or bureau of automotive repair if you have one) and file a formal complaint, that will get them moving.

Will need more information, but if you have been noticing a slow and steady decline in power, probably a clogged catalyst converter which is common problem with loss of power without a distinct miss in engine indicating a tune up is needed. If you can get car scanned for codes it will point you in right direction. Often times the national chains like Autozone and Advance Auto will do free scan if your mechanic won't. FREE-PPV.com

I-PASS and E-ZPass can be used interchangeably and are accepted in 15 states by 26 toll agencies. Rates and discounts are set by individual facilities. Please visit their websites through the E-ZPass facilities page for specific information.

Wikpedia actually has a listing of the fee schedule by state. Generally, you put money on an account and each time you go through a tll, the money is drawn from the account.
