I have 180 K on a 06 Passat 2.0 turbo. No chk engine light on . In the last two weeks the engine has shut off twice. It happened while on the freeway during the hottest part of the day. Al gauges OK
It could be a number of things like the Crank shaft sensor, bad fuel pump,until a code shows it may be had to find the problem....http://repairpal.com/car-shut-off-while-drive--531
