What is a VW EPC light misfire?
I just took my car to the mechanic because I was having some issues, and she told me it was an EPC light misfire. Can you tell me what a VW EPC light misfire is?

Hi! Sometimes mechanic jargon can be confusing. A VW EPC light misfire means that the Electronic Power Control warning light indicated that there was a problem with your vehicle. The Volkswagen EPC lights up when there is an issue with the throttle system, including the throttle body, accelerator pedal, cruise control, or traction control. In your case, it sounds like your Volkswagen’s engine may be misfiring. Any problem with your engine is serious and should be looked at right away, but it seems that you’re already having it taken care of!
