#1

I have a 2002 v6 passat 4 motion –

the check engine light has been going off and on for over a year

(and it is not the bad kind of check engine light with the line through it)

--just went to the dealer for an oil change and the check engine happened to be on so I had him do a diagnostic – they say it is the ECT

--I thought I would ask you how likely it is that it is the ECT



--no other symptoms the car runs fine – no other lights ever come on – heater works fine-- gauges are fine


#2

The codes DON’T say that a particular part is faulty. The codes mean to check those components and all their associated wiring for faults.


#3

yes I understand thank you

my main question is that
–I thought I would ask you how likely it is that it is the ECT

and also do you think I should get a second opinion?


#4

I don’t know exactly what they checked as I did not watch them
