First, oil sludge resulting in engine failure is what Volkswagen Passat drivers' biggest trouble as it means the cooling system failure and engine failure happens together. Some Passat owners know that engine failure is serious enough to destroy the vehicle, but once the cooling system also fails, all will happen sooner and more serious. Therefore, when the engine starts to make strange sounds such as whining, squealing or rattling, you need to be alert if the engine is failing. And once you could find leaking oil and coolant on the ground, the engine overheats and stays at a high temperature, you should know the engine performance will plummet quickly. Once the engine misfires, stalls and suffers from starting issues, even vehicle hesitates in accelerating and has poor fuel efficiency, the Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light come on, you need to inspect the Passat cooling hose, coolant reservoir, intake manifold gasket, air filter, oil filter, radiator and spark plug immediately.
Second, for Volkswagen Passat owners, braking failure is another horrible issue since it also has close relation with driving safety. A well-functioning braking system could make sure a safe ride and anything wrong on it could bring about devastating consequences. Therefore, recognizable and simple symptoms of braking issues are hoped to be borne in your mind in case same goes to your Passat. When you could hear noisy sounds from the brakes when depressing them and they also respond poorly; when the brake pedal also becomes pulsating; when the parking braking could not hold the vehicle properly and when both the Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on, you need to start to inspect if the Passat brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake caliper and parking brake cable are working properly or not.
