It is the second time that the warning check the engine light went on and stayed on when I was driving my 2010 GTI. When it happened in Spring the first time, I went to VW specialist and they changed the sparks, and that was 6 months ago. This time I went to another shop and got diagnosis test. They did not find any problems and suggested me to use fuel cleaner when filling gas. I did what I was told but the light is still on.
