RepairPal Expert Overview
Vehicles equipped with a 2.0L TDI engine may develop a crack in the #2 injector fuel line, resulting in a Diesel fuel leak.
Volkswagen/Audi will notify owners of affected vehicles during November 2011. If you are experiencing a fuel leak, or you don't receive notification and you feel you should have, please contact your dealer. It's helpful to have your vehicle identification number (VIN) when you call.
On the 2.0L TDI common rail Diesel engine/clean Diesel engine, fuel injection pulses could coincide with the natural frequency of injector line #2. This resonance creates additional stress on the fuel line. Small cracks could develop in the #2 injector line, resulting in a Diesel fuel leak. A fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will install an improved #2 fuel injector line and install vibration dampers on all of the injector lines to correct this concern. The Volkswagen/Audi recall number is 23J9/V5.
