2009 Volkswagen Eos ProblemsNo Start after Refueling and Popping Noise from Trunk
Popping sounds from the rear of the vehicle may be heard moments after starting the engine, or when slowing to a stop. This noise is from the leak detection pump filling the fuel tank with air, and releasing to retest the system when it finds a fault. The sequence of faults identifying this issue are as follows:
- Succession of loud pops from rear of vehicle
- Pops go away, and fuel economy decreases
- Check engine light illuminates
- OBD trouble code P2404 and/or P0441 is stored
- Engine will not start after refueling (must crank for over 30 seconds)
- Vibration when slowing to a stop
The cause is a valve which is mounted on the front of the intake manifold, commonly called the N80 valve, or EVAP system purge valve. The valve is designed to open under specific circumstances, but a worn valve will remain open at all times, preventing the pressurization of the fuel tank.
Correction of the issue is to replace the N80 valve with the latest revision.
2.0L turbo charged engines may develop a hesitation on acceleration and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light due to a failed high pressure fuel pump or a worn camshaft follower or camshaft. To help prevent this issue from occurring, the cam follower should be inspected every 10,000 - 15,000 miles. The camshaft lobe pushes on the follower to operate the high pressure fuel pump.
To correct this issue one or all of the following will need replacement: the camshaft, high-pressure fuel pump, and/or the cam follower.
An issue may develop where a window will not roll up after a short pulse down. Our technicians tell us this is a normal condition. Cycling the power door lock followed by the key switch will reset the programmer and restore proper window operation.
2009 Volkswagen Eos QuestionsCan't reverse (1 answer)
Car drives well,,but when I shift on reverse, my prnd on my dash board blink, and I can't reverse, it acts like it's on neutral. Today my engine light went on help! I've put too much money into this car. Is,this my transmission failing?
My sure sensor go crazy. One moment it says I need brakes, then it say I need oil , the abs I took to it to a shop and I was told I need a vacuum pump, so not sure what I need
The dealership says it's the wiring harness in the driver's door. Have others had this issue? The part is back-ordered for the month of June, which makes me think I'm not alone in this. And the repair is going to be $1500.
2009 Volkswagen Eos RecallsAutomatic Transmission Shifts Into Neutral Without Warning
Connectors for a temperature sensor inside the direct shift gearbox (DSG) transmission may have been insufficiently crimped. They could incorrectly read a high transmission oil temperature, and abruptly shift into neutral. The shift position indicator in the instrument panel would begin to flash and the "Depress Brake Pedal" indicator light will be illuminated to alert the driver to apply the brakes. The abrupt shift could lead to a crash. Volkswagen and Audi dealers will reprogram the transmission control module (TCM) with updated software. The recall began October 20, 2009. The Volkswagen recall number is 37E3/S7 and the Audi recall number is 37E5/J7.
