My 2002 Passat is surging with power when I hit the accelerator, the check engine light is blinking throughout. Also the heater won't work!

Asked by Mar 27, 2014 at 04:10 PM about the 2002 Volkswagen Passat GLS Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

565

Flashing check engine light indicates a misfire. I would not advise driving the car in its current state, as there is a possibility of damaging the catalytic converter. First thing's first, purchase or borrow an OBDII code reader/scan tool and find out what OBD code is being thrown. The codes begin with a P and have 4 digits following. ie: P0300. Goodluck!
