When i drive my vw passat 2003 for about 60kilometres at high speed and slow and to continue acceleration engine become stiff and will produce some racking sound and when i force it stops and pick up again. Please any help.
I bought a used VW passat 2003 (engine 2.0) 10 days ago. the car's engine and gear box are working fine. But after 7 days of use, one morning when i tried to start the car, it wouldnt start. I could see EPC and battery symbol on my dashboard. I checked with a friend who asked me to replace the battery. I replaced the old battery with a new battery. But still the same problem persists. I randomly face this problem. after every 4-5 times of normal startup, the 6th time the EPC and battery symbol comes again and i cant start my car. the surprising part is when i press the accelerator pedal couple of times, the car starts, but its very random and more of a trial and error. pls help. i really need advice...
