Engine cover

Asked by Apr 21, 2014 at 08:27 AM about the 2008 Volkswagen Passat Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If the engine cover is crack on my passat will that make my check engine light come on? When I hit the gas the car stutters and my check engine light flashes and stays on. I already replaced the coils and spark plugs. If I replace the engine cover will that fix the problem?

Probably. Check the codes, I'm sure you will have a lean code denoting a vacuum leak. Or you can just go ahead and replace the cover, you will have to anyhow, and see if the light goes out.
