comment does a car normally continue moving at a constant speed when in gear and the foot is taken off the accelerator pedal?
When the transmission is disengaged (gear stick in neutral), it idles smoothly. I check the tire pressure every time I am bored near a filling station, so I keep it within spec. I'll try the hill thing when I'll be driving over one. What I wanted to know is maybe something can be regulated to have the engine deliver a little bit more torque when idling, maybe cleaning/changing air filters will help, or something else needs to be done to increase the torque while idle? But maybe I add another question about that.

That is not applicable here, as both the passenger car and the van where manual transmissions. Its in Europe. I didn't ever even sit in the driver's seat of a vehicle with an automatic transmission. Yet in the passenger car with manual transmission it was possible (when releasing the accelerator pedal slowly) to have it keep moving with the foot completely off the accelerator pedal and off the clutch.

comment Passat - Oil warning light on engine rev. Expensive fix?
think about it: if it would have been a cheap and easy fix, the seller would have just fixed it and sold the car for a normal price. Unless you know of some legitimate reasons that this seller decided to sell as is, instead of fixing it (I can't think of any right now), its probably not so cheap and easy.

@Patrick you created the synonym, but now "mercedes-benz" is gone from the list of valid tags, so can you add it back?

@Troggy why did you change the "mercedes-benz" tag to "mercedes" which is a synonym, but now this question is not visible under tag mercedes-benz Can you change the tag back to mercedes-benz?
