We interrupt this blog to bring you the method for fixing a misfire in the 1996 Volkswagen Passat. Little did I know when I bought said car that annoying, expensive and consistent problems would arise. Finding explanations and fixes for the problems I've had have come few and far between.

In an effort to Google bomb this explanation for fixing the misfire in the 1996 Volkswagen Passat GLX VR6, I am posting this blog entry, complete with keywords, such as...

  • Volkswagen
  • Passat
  • GLX VR6
  • ignition coil
  • coil pack
  • misfire
  • misfiring
  • engine sputtering
  • $350 part
  • repair costs
  • outrageous labor costs
  • do it yourself
  • $3 epoxy
  • i hate my car
  • thank god i live only 4 miles from work
It took me several hours to find this article about the coil pack. Hopefully other unfortunate 1996 Passat owners will now find it more easily. Also, I recently found another relevant page about fixing your coil pack with epoxy. This page has more discussion on the suggestions made at the guide linked above.

Please post a comment below if this information has been useful to you. Also, if anyone is interested, I have the old cracked coil pack left over from my recent repairs. If anyone would like to buy it, just make me an offer (I mean, someone might want it, right?).
