Customer Question

I'm pulling a number of codes on my 2008 Passat. misfires, fuel-air mix, and 12a2. Does this sound like my fuel pump? That is what I'm seeing on searches

Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative.

the p011 fault is the main fault to worry first . note this may be a compounded issue. i do need a vin # ***** get the correct repair information of your vehicle to assist. thanks
