I've got a VW 2006...
I've got a VW 2006 2.0T Passat. Lately it has an issue with the RPMs jumping around between 0 and 30 and occasionally power shuts off entirely. It generally happens after I stop and then try to accelerate into a turn. Then I have to wait about a minute then try to restart . . . then it starts with no problem. But this does leave me stranded across the road, mid-turn sometimes.My code reader came up with 11 codes. I have a repair manual but the codes don't match up so the ones that the reader didn't identify I had to look up online so I'm not sure how accurate they are.00010 Camshaft Position Sensor
00049 Temperature sensors heat exchange right
00051 Temp Sensors floor space, rear left
00581 Knock Sensor Control Cylinder 5
00801 A/C Refrigerant High Pressure Switch
01109 Convertible Top Hydraulic Pump Relay - Upper limit reached
01112 Actuator Motor 1&2 Power Supply - Lower Limit reached
01286 Belt Tensioner Driver's Side Disabled
01316 ABS Control Module - No Signal/Connection
08851 Fuel Pressure Regulator
09217 ?????Basically, I need to know what to go about fixing and/or checking first and if it's even . . . fixable.

You have a very common issue you will need to remove the high pressure fuel pump located on the drivers side of the engine it held on by 3 torx bit screws and also 2 fuel lines under it after removing this inspect the tip of the high pressure fuel pump and the follower that goes from the pump to the intake cam moire then likely you will have a damaged cam follower with a dent or whole on top of it .If this is the case you will need a new intake cam because the cam follower rides on it and has been damaged . I hope this helps .

Please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided we rely on this rating thank you
